What About This?

Overview

A Fibre Channel PCI Express card is required to connect a Mac Pro to external Fibre Channel storage or an Xsan network. A user installable kit contains an Apple Dual-Channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express Card (host bus adapter) plus two 2.9-meter 4Gb Active Copper Fibre Channel SFP to SFP (small form factor pluggable) interconnect cables.
