Akitio Unveils New Thunderbolt™ Docking Station


Akitio's Thunder Dock allows users to access data on both legacy and future storage drives by providing multiple host ports for USB 3.0, eSATA and FireWire 800

Brea, CA (I-Newswire) December 18, 2013 - Akitio, a leading manufacturer of storage solutions, announced today the unveiling of the company's newest Thunderbolt solution, the Thunder Dock. The Akitio Thunderbolt dock links past, present and future technology to a computer with just one Thunderbolt cable. The Thunder Dock is available now with an MSRP of $269.

The Thunderbolt dock provides users access to data on both legacy and future storage drives by providing multiple host ports for USB 3.0, eSATA and FireWire 800. In addition, it is also equipped with two Thunderbolt ports for daisy chaining additional Thunderbolt devices and storage. By simply connecting one Thunderbolt cable from the dock to a computer, users will receive instant access to all of the additional storage drives that are hooked up to the dock. The lighting fast Thunderbolt interface guarantees the best possible data transfer rates.

Akitio's Thunder Dock features the following:

• Two Thunderbolt ports for lightning fast speeds of up to 10Gb/s
• Daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt devices
• Two eSATA host ports (up to six Gb/s)
• One seven watt bus-powered FireWire 800 host port
• Two bus-powered USB 3.0 host ports (supports UASP)
• Durable and rugged alumninm casing
• Compatible with Thunderbolt™2


Thunderbolt is a revolutionary connection technology that simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. Thunderbolt I/O technology gives users two channels on the same connector with 10 Gbps of throughput in both directions. That makes Thunderbolt extremely fast and flexible. In comparison, it is up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than FireWire 800.
