    supported 10Gb card for mac pro to Nexis


    I need to connect one of my editing clients to our Arista switch via 10Gb. The Arista is it turn connected to our Nexis. The editor is using a trash can mac so I'll need to get a thunderbolt 10Gb solution. I have found the documentation for Media Composer v7 that states the supported Sonnett PCI chassis to Thunderbolt but that is old information.

    Does anyone know what products are supported for Media Composer (on OSX 10.10 or 10.11) and Nexis? I'm hoping it's still the Sonnett line of products but if so which ones.

    You can use the ATTO ThunderLink adapters...

    From the Nexis v6.01 ReadMe:

    This release supports using any of the following ATTO ThunderLink adapters for Mac clients:

    • TLNT-2102-D01 (10GBaseT) — Provides two 10 GbE connections

    • TLNS-2102-D01 (Optical SFP+) — Provides two 10 GbE connections

    • TLNS-2101-D00 — Provides one 10 GbE connection

    In addition, this release includes the ATTO v2.0.6 driver, which enables 10 Gb connections to OS X.

    The Sonnet Expansion Chassis along with a Myricom NIC is still supported but the ATTO Thunderlink are a better choice. They are less expensive and perform better. [view my complete system specs]
