Designed with Mac Pro In Mind
Constructed of heavy-duty steel to protect the computers, the RackMac pro was designed following Apple’s usage guidelines, mounting your Mac Pros horizontally and enabling unrestricted airflow through the computers to keep them cool, even when the RackMac is installed between other equipment in a loaded rack.
RackMac Pro’s Computer Mounting Modules feature strong, secure padded brackets to envelope the Mac Pro, protect the computers’ finish, and hold them firmly in place during transport and use.
Front Panel Power Button & USB 3.0 Port
A front panel power switch and USB 3.0 port for each computer enable you to turn the computers on and off, and connect a peripheral to each without having to access the back of the computer.
Rear Panel Mount Cables
Panel-mount cables (HDMI, two Gigabit Ethernet, three USB 3.0, and power) connect the ports on the back of each Mac Pro to ports on the back each Computer Mounting Module for convenient external connection.
Locking HDMI Cable Ready
Supports Sonnet HDMI cable (sold separately) with thumbscrew fastener that prevents accidental disconnection.
Mounting Support for 10GbE Adapter
The RackMac Pro even provides mounting support to secure a Sonnet Twin 10G 10 Gigabit Ethernet to Thunderbolt adapter next to each Mac Pro using the optional Twin 10G Mounting Kit.
Travel and Server-Room Ready
The RackMac Pro’s padded Computer Mounting Module holds a Mac Pro firmly in place without marring the mirror finish, even during transport, making this rackmount solution perfect for use in transportable rack applications. The Computer Mounting Module also provides cable management tie-downs to secure all Thunderbolt cables connected to the Mac Pro, and supports Sonnet’s exclusive locking HDMI cable (sold separately); this 2-meter cable attaches securely to the Computer Mounting Module to prevent accidental disconnections. Installed in the server room, the RackMac Pro’s included rackmount extension rails allow easy and secure mounting in racks from 16 to 26 inches deep. Optional, extra-long extension rails that support installation in racks up to 32.5 inches deep are also available. Wherever it is deployed, a RackMac Pro holds your Mac Pros in secure style.
Virtualization Housing for Software Development
The RackMac Pro is ideal for mounting Mac Pro VMware virtualization servers. By installing one VSphere ESXi hypervisor license per Mac Pro, you can run Linux™, Windows®, and OS X® virtual machines, and take advantage of the Mac Pro’s superior 128GB of virtualized RAM. Combined with Sonnet’s Twin 10G 10 Gigabit Ethernet to Thunderbolt adapter, your Mac Pro virtualization servers will have lightning fast access to 10GbE infrastructure.
