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.
