While the 2019 Mac Pro offers fast 3,400 MB/s internal SSD storage, capacity is limited to 8TB. Connecting external drives is an option, but why not just use the space and connections inside the Mac Pro to add capacity? Sonnet’s Fusion Flex J3i makes it easy, enabling you to securely install and connect up to three SATA drives (sold separately) in the available space next to the PCIe card slots.
Not only does the Fusion Flex J3i provide support for mounting two 3.5-inch hard drives of your choice, the Flex’s custom design provides mounting support for an additional 2.5-inch SATA SSD. Of course, the necessary mounting hardware and connecting cables are included for a clean installation.
The Fusion Flex J3i includes mounting plates and screws that enable you to install three 2.5-inch SSDs in total.
Sonnet designed the Fusion Flex J3i to make maximum use of the space and connections inside the Mac Pro; constructed out of heavy-gauge aluminum, the J3i looks right at home inside the computer. Its vibration-absorbing 3.5-inch drive mounts reduce noise and enhance reliability. Mounting plates for 2.5-inch drives are included, so there’s no need to purchase separate pieces to use them. Custom power and data cables deliver a clean look to the installation.
The Fusion Flex J3i makes it easy to move two 3.5-inch hard drives from your 2010 or 2012 Mac Pro into your 2019 Mac Pro, with no additional adapters or cables required.
Over the last 3 months, editors have increasingly stepped away from the post house to cut, grade and finish from home. Unplugged from ultra-fast online storage, editors have felt the pain of small local drives and storage that isn’t up to the job of multi-channel RAW. The problem is real and becoming increasingly pressing: video resolution is increasing, with 4K and 6K cameras becoming common on the market, and more cameras offering 10-, 12- or 16-bit recording options. For a creative platform like Baselight, DaVinci Resolve or Adobe After Effectts, this additional data is a godsend as it gives editors, colourists and compositors the flexibility to control the look with no creative boundaries.
