Entertainment Technology Expo 2013:  Akitio Thunderbolt Drives

Entertainment Technology Expo 2013: Akitio Thunderbolt Drives

While at ETE2013, we were able to spend some time with Richard Wright, Director of Global Distribution for Akitio. If you’re not familiar with the name, you’re probably familiar with their products as they have been manufacturing OEM products for other companies for years. Akitio’s US headquarters are located in Brea, California. Since 1992, they have been designing and creating storage solutions. With the new MacPro on everyone’s mind, its six Thunderbolt 2 inputs, four USB3s, lack of Firewire inputs and the inability to add any storage internaly, Thunderbolt is the only way to go.

In our interview, Wright breaks down the entire line of Thunderbolt products from Akitio and tells us why Akitio is the best option for Thunderbolt storage on the market.

Here’s more from Akitio:
