Not All Thunderbolts Created Equal
Anandtech looks at how the new MacBook Air uses a scaled back Thunderbolt controller versus the other Macs that include the bus. Of note, the chips in the other Macs have four 10Gbps duplex channels each, meaning there is already more bandwidth baked in than advertised.

Meet Your Next MDC
Apple released Thunderbolt Mac mini Servers today, with Lion Server preinstalled (which now includes Xsan). Standard kit is a quad core 2.0 GHz Core i7 CPU with dual 7,200 RPM 500 GB HDDs and 4 GB of RAM. BTO options include dual 256 GB SSDs with TRIM support, and up to 8 GB RAM.
Unsurprisingly, the Gigabit Ethernet on board no longer claims jumbo frame support (no Core iX Mac thus far as supported jumbo frames on its built-in Gig-E NIC).
85 Watts. That's it. Near silent operation, trivial heat output. Now we just need Promise to ship SANlink.
Bone stock list price is $999, fully loaded hardware (8 GB RAM and dual SSD options added) lists for $2,199.

Promise Ships Pegasus: First Thunderbolt Storage
Promise Technology today announced that their Pegasus R4 and R6 Thunderbolt RAID systems are now shipping. These deliver over 800 MB/s over the new Thunderbolt port.The Pegasus user manual is good for perusing. They've included quite a bit more functionality in the Mac admin app than your typical desktop RAID. In additional to full power and environmental monitoring, you can configure background tasks and low level drive settings, similar to their x30 rack mountable systems.
Prices range from $999 to $1,999.
Be sure you install yesterday's Thunderbolt Firmware Update before installation!
The press release is after the jump...
