Sonnet’s High-Performance 6Gb/sec SATA PCI Express 2.5-Inch SSD Cards Now Support Booting in Mac Pro

Tempo(TM) SSD and Tempo SSD Pro Let Users Select and Mount Their Own 6Gb/sec solid-state drives on a PCIe(R) Card; Also Bootable in Thunderbolt(TM)-to-PCIe Expansion Chassis and in Windows(R) PCs

IRVINE, Calif. — Feb. 13, 2013 — Sonnet Technologies today announced an upgrade to its Tempo(TM) SSD and Tempo SSD Pro 6Gb/sec SATA PCI Express(R) (PCIe(R)) 2.5-inch SSD cards to support booting in Mac Pro(R) computers (early 2008 and newer). With the update, users can boot from a Mac Pro even in a RAID 0 configuration with two solid-state drives (SSDs). Booting is also supported for Windows(R) 7 and 8 computers as well as Server 2008 and 2012 (although not from a RAID drive).

With the Tempo SSD and Tempo SSD Pro, users can purchase one or two SSDs separately and then easily mount them on PCIe cards. Unlike other PCIe SSD cards, the Tempo SSD Pro and Tempo SSD utilize widely available 2.5-inch SATA SSDs (sold separately), giving users great flexibility in selecting the SSD capacity and performance that best suit their needs and budget, as well as the option to upgrade easily as required. With the ability to boot from attached SSDs, Mac Pro users can now extract the best performance possible from their systems with significantly faster operation.

Delivering performance that cannot be matched by spinning-disk drives, SSDs have become important components in systems requiring extremely fast data transfer speeds and large numbers of I/O operations. Instead of relying on proprietary SSD modules, Sonnet chose to support standard 2.5-inch SATA SSDs to allow users access to the most common SSD form factor, which is generally available at better prices than proprietary SSD modules. The Sonnet Tempo 6Gb/sec SATA cards offer twice the bandwidth of the Mac Pro’s native 3Gb/sec SATA bus for superior performance.

The Tempo SSD card uses a high-performance 6Gb/sec SATA controller and a PCIe 2.0 interface. It features a unique modular design that supports one SSD with the card at half-length, or two SSDs with an included bracket that extends the card to full length. The Tempo SSD supports sustained read speeds of up to 500 MB/sec from a single SSD or up to 660 MB/sec from two SSDs configured as a RAID 0 set.

The Tempo SSD Pro card can mount two SSDs in a full-length PCIe slot, such as those in the Mac Pro. The Tempo SSD Pro features a higher-performance 6Gb/sec SATA SSD controller that supports sustained read speeds of up to 960 MB/sec from two SSDs configured as a Mac Pro-bootable RAID 0 set.

The Sonnet Tempo SSD and Tempo SSD Pro cards install into a Mac(R) or Windows computer’s PCIe slot, or into a Thunderbolt(TM) expansion chassis for PCIe cards such as Sonnet’s Echo(TM) Express line, or the xMac(TM) mini Server PCIe 2.0 expansion system/1U rackmount enclosure. With SSDs attached, both cards are narrow enough to occupy the space of only a single-width card.

“Our Tempo SSD and Tempo SSD Pro cards have enabled users to install ultra-fast SSDs in their computers or Thunderbolt-to-PCIe expansion chassis to take advantage of SSDs without cables, adapters, or cases, while providing them complete price/performance flexibility in their choice of high-performance SSDs,” said Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies. “Upgrading these cards to support booting from attached SSDs in the Mac Pro enhances their usefulness and flexibility.”

As a benefit to all previous purchasers of Tempo SSD and Tempo SSD Pro cards, Sonnet has posted software on its website that enables users to update their cards to gain the new capability. Users will find the software at www.sonnettech.com/support/.

Compatible with OS X(R) 10.6.8+ (including Mountain Lion); Microsoft(R) Windows 8, 7, and Vista(R); and Server 2012 and 2008; the Tempo SSD (part number TSATA6-SSD-E2) is available now at a suggested retail price of $149.95, and the Tempo SSD Pro (part number TSATA6-SSDPR-E2) is available now at a suggested retail price of $299.95. More information on the Tempo SSD is available at www.sonnettech.com/product/tempossd.html. More information on the Tempo SSD Pro is available at www.sonnettech.com/product/tempossdpro.html.

More information on Sonnet and its other products is available at www.sonnettech.com.

NEP Supershooters Preparing for 13th Season as Mobile Broadcast Service Provider for NASCAR Productions

NEP Supershooters Provides Extensive Fiber Optic Infrastructure as Well as Comprehensive Mobile Production Facilities for Highly Complex Broadcasts

PITTSBURGH — Feb. 12, 2013 — With the approach of the Daytona 500 on Feb. 24, which serves as the official opening of the NASCAR racing season, NEP Supershooters is gearing up for its 13th year as mobile broadcasting provider for NASCAR Productions. In addition to providing the industry’s most innovative HD mobile production capabilities, NEP Supershooters has applied its expertise in fiber optics to design and build the fiber infrastructure for each NASCAR venue, including huge racetracks that require more than 150,000 feet of fiber.

“We value our ongoing relationship with NASCAR, and we’re honored to be able to provide technical management, engineering, and facilities for one of the most complex sports broadcasts in the U.S.,” said NEP CEO Kevin Rabbitt. “NASCAR Productions trusts us to work with its rights holders and other vendors to deliver a flawless show every week, and our 12-year track record is a testament to the engineering excellence, innovation, and expertise that we bring to every race.”

Over the years, NEP’s technical expertise and depth of resources have uniquely positioned the company to handle NASCAR events of enormous complexity. The Daytona 500, for instance, is the biggest race of the year, comparable to the Super Bowl in production complexity. Since the Daytona 500 comes at the beginning of the season, NEP Supershooters is required to have a large-scale, highly reliable and well-tested system in place at the outset.

During the 2012 season, NASCAR Productions deployed NEP Supershooters’ SS29 mobile HD A and B units to produce all 38 events in NASCAR’s premier Sprint Cup Series. These units produced the full range of NASCAR Productions’ tier 2 programming, including a two-hour pre-race show featuring in-depth coverage of drivers and cars and four roving announcers located throughout the race track produced in partnership with SPEED. In addition, NEP Supershooters’ NCP11 and ST1 units produced all 22 races for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2012 for live broadcast on SPEED. NEP Supershooters has also provided several other large sports broadcasters with customized mobile production vehicles for their own coverage of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series, with NASCAR Productions providing logistics and infrastructure support.

In addition, NEP Supershooters provided its SRT mobile unit at all NASCAR premier series venues, acting as a shared resources truck that provided camera feeds and signal distribution for all rights holders. Via the fiber network designed and built by NEP, SRT distributed feeds from nearly 100 robotic, in-car, roof, stage, and studio cameras for the Daytona 500, with data and audio feeds from up to 70 cameras for other NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races. By integrating multiple production facilities for all networks, SRT served as the hub for the entire NASCAR Sprint Cup Series broadcasting compound. The custom designed “condo” unit ST37 provided production space for several other smaller productions and video services. From ST37, NASCAR Productions also produced international NASCAR ancillary programs distributed to 125 countries outside the U.S., in addition to Sprint Vision and FanVision content.
