Sonnet xMac Pro Server

PCIe 2.0 Expansion System/4U Rackmount Enclosure for New Mac Pro with Thunderbolt 2 Ports

Expand & Secure Your Mac Pro

Building on the concept of our award-winning xMac mini Server for Mac® mini, we designed an expansion system that safely encloses the latest Mac Pro® into a tightly integrated 16″ deep rackmount enclosure, incorporates PCIe card expansion with three PCIe 2.0 slots and 20Gbps Thunderbolt™ 2 technology, and provides the capability to add peripherals with optional Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits.

The new Mac Pro is an object of desire, but a lustrous finish hides its true beauty within—massive power. If you’re a pro user in the video or audio industries, the Mac Pro offers the power you need, but lacks the built-in expandability you count on. In order to achieve this engineering feat, Apple® designers stripped away components and space to a minimum, taking out PCIe slots and drive bays, and packed the remaining components into a small cylinder. Its compact size makes the new Mac Pro more transportable and rackable, but prevents onboard installation of PCIe expansion cards. In addition, the computer still requires an enclosure to make it road- or rack-ready and provide convenient cable management.

Sonnet’s xMac™ Pro Server PCIe 2.0 expansion system/4U rackmount enclosure addresses these issues and increases a Mac Pro’s potential in a big way. With amazing expansion capabilities, an easy to maintain modular design, and support for a wide range of popular mobile racks, carts and portable rack cases, xMac Pro Server is the perfect solution for expanding the power of your Mac Pro.

Rear Panel Mount Cables

Panel-mount cables (HDMI, two Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 3.0, one 3.5 mm audio [out or in], and power) connect the ports on the back of each Mac Pro to ports on the back each Computer Mounting Module for convenient external connection.

New Faceplate & Thumbscrew Design

Because of the active electronics contained in each end of a Thunderbolt cable, panel-mount connectors for Thunderbolt cables do not exist; Thunderbolt cables must be connected directly to the computer. Sonnet has updated the xMac Pro Server to make that task, and accessing PCIe cards, easier. Screws on the back of the enclosure have been replaced with captive thumbscrews, and the faceplate has been split in two (with each faceplate remaining attached to its module), enabling you to secure, release, and slide out each module without the need of tools.

Expand Your xMac Pro Server Further with Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits

Sonnet’s Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kits enable you to add more expansion devices to your rack without taking up additional rack space. The Mobile Rack Device Mounting Kit includes an internal 100W power supply inside to power the installed devices, a large internal fan to quietly and efficiently cool the expansion kit, and mounting hardware to secure the devices and the kit itself. Preconfigured kits include the mobile rack peripherals, PCIe card, and necessary cables; you provide drives as necessary.

Simpler Mac Pro Rackmount Solution

If you like the idea and design of the xMac Pro Server, but don’t need the expansion capabilities it offers for your Mac Pro, consider Sonnet’s RackMac™ Pro rackmount enclosure for one or two Mac Pro computers. This 4U enclosure includes one or two Computer Mounting Modules (the same included with the xMac Pro) to secure the computers, and supports the installation of one Twin 10G Dual-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt 2 Adapter per computer. If you change your mind later about Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion, you can add one or two Sonnet Echo Express III-R chassis to your setup.
