In the last decade there have been few technologies that have excited me like Thunderbolt. The ability to potentially have higher storage performance with external devices can be puzzling, yet at the same time, amazing. With Thunderbolt in its basic format being an extension of the PCIe interface, the possibilities for this interface are endless.
Since the introduction of Thunderbolt, Macintosh devices have largely been the sole systems supported by the interface. While Thunderbolt II may change this, Microsoft doesn't support the hot plugging of Thunderbolt without a driver.
CalDigit has specialized in creating storage solutions for creative professionals for over ten years, and was the first to provide external PCIe storage, and also the first to bring USB 3.0 devices to the Mac with the AV Drive.
Today, we have the latest from CalDigit in-house in the form of the T3 Thunderbolt RAID. With the Thunderbolt interface, the T3 has at its disposal 10 Gb/s bandwidth, delivering up to 550 MB/s with hard drives or 850 MB/s using solid state drives.
RAID features include support for RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD. Compatibility of the T3 Thunderbolt extends to OS X 10.6.8+ and Windows 7+.
