Its an interesting interface for sure but I don't see it necessarily impacting the Highend Pro user. Thunderbolt looks like a viable way of giving domestic and pro amateurs fibre connected XSAN type performance but at more affordable prices.

[Stephen Hill] "I don't see it necessarily impacting the Highend Pro user. "

Trust me, Thunderbolt's 2nd generation promises 100Gb/s, that will impact everyone. For that matter, the first generation will deliver what we presently consider high-end performance, but with just a single drive. So, why would that fail to impact pro users? Pros will will have bigger and faster multi-drive arrays just as they always have, but they'll just be loads faster than before and more easily connected, right to the main board of on both towers and laptops.

Of course the benefits are clear and its certainly an exciting future. The point I was making is that facilities are not going to suddenly ditch their fibre infrastructure and XSANs now that Thunderbolt is here. I love the idea of being able to plug my MBP in and out of our Final Cut server network with some sort of Thunderbolt to fibre device but while our editorial team continues to work brilliantly as it is we won't be rocking the boat. Its far easier for smaller outfits to embrace new tech.

If it lives up to its name, Thunderbolt will bring major changes to all storage devices.

The only ones using Thunderbolt now are the developers that are testing it.

I want a TBolt thumb drive!!!

and LaCie

have both jumped in on the desktop Raid, but those devices are not out for sale yet.
Only NAB will know who the other major players are and if it is viable for a large networked raid solution.
So far most of what I have seen it demoed as, is a desktop product bringing incredibly high transfer speeds to local users. Thunderbolt is still in its infancy, so anything can become of it in the future. Very exciting.

I Want a Tbolt SAN most of all but im sure ill have to wait for GEN 2 of thunderbolt for that. But my biggest question is this.
Considering the the Apple display port thingy = a thunderbolt interface, is it ok to assume that the GFX card in my MAC pro can be connected to a thunderbolt drive which in turn can be connected to a monitor?
hmmm (scrathes head) any testers?

oh and found this little ditty ....... nice!!!!

opportunities abound
