Base Model

Convert your Thunderbolt 2- and Thunderbolt-compatible Mac mini into a full-size server using the xMac Mini Server Thunderbolt 3 Rackmount Enclosure from Sonnet. This 1U rackmount enclosure expands the capabilities of your Mac mini by connecting to its Thunderbolt 3 port for a transfer rate of up to 40 Gb/s, with 1.75 Gb/s PCIe bandwidth to installed cards. Connect a USB 3.1 Gen 2 storage drives to the second Thunderbolt port using a compatible adapter or cable for up to 10 Gb/s throughput.

Two PCIe 2.0 slots are available for installing compatible expansion cards for fiber optic connections, RAID controllers, video capture devices, and more. An auxiliary PCIe power connector is included to supplement the 150W power supply for cards that require extra power. In addition to its two USB Type-A connectors for peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and flash drives, the xMac Mini Server features an RJ45 port that supports up to 10Gb Ethernet and a HDMI port for external displays.

Ready for the Server Room

xMac Mini Server 1U rackmount enclosure features a user-replaceable 150W power supply, variable speed fans, and built-in cable management.

Energy Efficiency

The rackmount enclosure includes variable-speed fans that automatically adjust to each configuration. It can also automatically turn itself on and off to help conserve power when the Mac mini is in sleep mode or turned off.

USB 3.1 Gen 2

Doubling the speed of its predecessor, USB 3.1 Gen 2 features a maximum throughput of 10 Gb/s when used with compatible devices.


The included Thunderbolt cable features Sonnet's ThunderLok technology, which keeps the Thunderbolt connector securely attached to the port and minimizes the chance of it being accidentally unplugged.
