Brea, Calif. - January 5, 2015 / ‐‐ AKiTiO, a leading manufacturer of storage solutions, announced today the unveiling of its new, portable, bus-powered, Thunderbolt™ to SATA mini dock. The Thunder SATA Go will be available for $99 at Akitio.com, Amazon.com and from other fine resellers in early 2015.
The AKiTiO Thunder SATA Go features an all-aluminum, unibody design. It allows users to connect their SATA storage and RAID devices, but does so in an extremely portable, bus-powered solution. The Thunder SATA Go can also be used to connect an SSD directly to a laptop computer so that content editing can be done in the field with transfer speeds of up to 550MB/second.
“One of our best selling products is our Thunder Dock. This is basically a mini, SATA only, version of that without the need for external power. Another great feature of the Thunder SATA Go is that it provides filmmakers with the ability to connect any SSD, straight from their camera, regardless of brand or capacity, directly to their laptop without it needing to be plugged into a power outlet. When you’re on a deadline, every second counts. Raw data on an SSD can be passed along to a DIT for editing and the filmmaker can insert a new SSD into the camera and continue filming at the same time that editing is taking place. We believe this innovative product will become an integral part of on-site filming & editing”, said Richard Wright, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Akitio.
The AKiTiO Thunder SATA Go is ideal for Thunderbolt equipped notebooks, such as the Apple® MacBook Pro, MacBook AIR and HP ZBook workstations.
As a leader in Thunderbolt solutions, AKiTiO consistently delivers products that optimize performance, speed, power, form factor and cost. Today's increasing demand for media-rich entertainment requires accelerated access to data for the most demanding high-performance applications. AKiTiO products, such as the Thunder SATA Go, provide users with reliable solutions for accessing and transferring data intensive applications such as 4K video both on-site and in the studio.
