Akitio Single-Drive ThunderBolt Backup DrivesAkitio's offerings in the ThunderBolt portable/desktop drive space began with the Neutrino SSD lineup (shown below) with 256GB to 1TB capacities in attractive and stylish aluminum enclosure. Designed more for the consumer marketplace and not the enterprise space, these have only a single TBolt port - not dual pass-through ports. As such, they're best directly connected to your Mac or PC laptop / desktop - or as the last device in a daisy-chained setup.
