JMR Announces General Availability of Mac mini RAID Desktop and Rackmount Work Stations

Chatsworth, CA --- JMR Electronics, Inc. announces the general availability of their latest Thunderbolt certified desktop and rackmount workstation for the Apple Mac mini.

The JMR Lightning model LTNG-XD-8-MMDT is a unique, all new desktop/DI cart complete workstation. The Mac mini installs via an easy slide-in sled from the rear, and the Lightning desktop provides front-panel USB3, audio I-O and media card reader, while the rear panel provides all other Mac connections. An internal Thunderbolt controller and 2-slot PCIe (x8 full-height slots) expander with an internal 6Gb SAS RAID controller are standard, as well as eight 3.5” hot-swappable disk drive bays to provide up to 64TB of native disk storage capacity (RAID 0/1/4/5/6/40/50/60).

The desktop/cart unit will have an optional 9” LCD flip-up monitor (available in late November) which connects to the Mac mini and may be added or removed in the field without tools. Perfect for ingest and dailies, the Lightning desktop is very portable and quiet in operation, cooled by a whisper quiet, low-speed centrifugal blower in a removable module. The unit also has an attractive locking, ventilated and hinged front door to prevent accidental disk drive removal or theft, and a Kensington lock slot. Measuring only 7” H x 11” W x 16” D, the new Lightning desktop for Mac mini is highly portable. MSRP for the unit starts at $3,499, including internal ExpressSAS RAID controller.
