With increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, and with specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) use has skyrocketed. This high-speed wired networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the common wired network connection included with most computers today. Sonnet offers a powerfully simple way to add 10GbE connectivity to your Mac Pro or Windows PC - the Presto 10GbE 1-port.
The Presto 10GbE 1-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express adapter card enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage without stepping down in speed. Setup is simple - install the low-profile card in your computer, install a driver, connect to the switch or 10GbE port via LC fiber optic or copper cable, and then configure the card through the OS X network control panel or Windows Device Manager. This Sonnet solution is perfect for high-performance computing where low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead are required. Its increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are achieved with stateless offloads, allowing your computer to perform better while large files transfers or high I/O operations take place.
