The ATTO ThunderLink NS 2101 acts as an external Thunderbolt 2 to 10GbE adapter, connecting Thunderbolt enabled all-in-one systems and laptops to 10Gb/s Ethernet networks and storage devices. ThunderLink 10GbE, with support for link aggregation and failover, offers redundancy and high availability for critical network applications. With 10Gb/s data transfer rates and multiple offloads (TCP, IPv4, UDP), Ethernet ThunderLinks are the premier connectivity choice for bandwidth-intensive applications such as data back-up and restoration, clustered computing, IP content delivery, medical imaging, and video rendering. With multi-core processors driving the need for higher bandwidth, ThunderLink 10GbE delivers superior throughput to meet that need.
With a low profile form factor, and Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, ATTO's optical 10GbE ThunderLink adapter provides the most flexible and scalable connectivity for today's high bandwidth content creation environments. By leveraging support for software iSCSI initiators, including ATTO Xtend SAN, ThunderLink 10GbE can support both local and storage area networks.
ThunderLink 10GbE offers Windows and Mac certified drivers, providing a single connectivity solution for customers with multiple operating system environments.
All ATTO Thunderbolt product utilize Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) Technology which maximizes CPU processes to deliver smooth and reliable data transfers and the highest consistent performance as well as our easy to use ConfigTool, an intuitive GUI, which enables management, monitoring and configuration.

Advanced Management Tools
ThunderLink 10GbE adapters provide a common foundation for both Ehternet and storage networks. The ThunderLink leverages standard OS management and monitoring tools to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of a data center's administration and infrastructure.
ThunderLink 10GbE adapter solutions allow the unparalleled performance of 10GbE to meet the performance and economic needs of today's growing data centers. The ThunderLink is ideal for applications that require low latency, high bandwidth data transfers, such as data back-up and restoration, video-on-demand and video streaming, medical imaging, and clustered databases.
Advanced Data Streaming (ADS)
Latency-management technology that controls the acceleration of data transfers to move large amounts of data faster and more efficiently.
Purpose-built with your design needs in mind
Meet demands for increased portability, decreased footprint and noise-sensitive environments with a low profile, cool, ultra-quiet device. ThunderLink adapters are simple to stack, easy to install and are designed to integrate seamlessly into existing infrastructures. The ability to hot-plug and full support of daisy-chaining allows you to reconfigure on-the-fly and empowers scalability as workgroups grow.
Spend less time managing equipment and more time creating
Trust your units are powered, ready-to-go and have uninterrupted power with locking power supplies. Now shipping with every Thunderbolt adapter, Kensington Security Slots provide a simple solution for studios, offices and educational facilities, allowing units to be easily secured to a fixed location.
It's time to watch your throughput grow
Finally combat compressed schedules and allow for more time creating high-quality deliverables by optimizing performance, up to 2750MB/s for Thunderbolt 3. Smooth and reliable data delivery via ATTO Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) technology allows you to maintain the highest consistent performance while working with HD, 2K, 4K and higher formats.
Build out a workflow the way you need it
Expand your connectivity choices with the widest portfolio of Thunderbolt adapters across Fibre Channel, Ethernet and SAS and 4X more interoperable components than the closest competitors. Any needed optics (SFP+, QSFP+) are already included and rigorously tested to ensure compatability and data integrity. Mac and Windows Thunderbolt certification enables collaborative workflows and the only Thunderbolt adapter certified with VMware ESXi allows deployments of a one-of-a-kind solution for test and development environments.
Thunderbolt Solutions have never been easier
