Elgato announced a pure-storage product on Thursday called Thunderbolt Drive+. It's an external drive using a "server-grade Plextor Solid State Drive" that supports Apple's and Intel's Thunderbolt, as well as USB 3.0. It comes in either 256GB or 512GB configurations, and includes a Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 cable. It's bus-powered, and Elgato says it offers transfer speeds of up to 420 MB/s—that's on the Thunderbolt side—making it fast enough for just about anything. Using Plextor's controller chips and a high-end SSD means these babies aren't cheap, however; the 256GB unit is $499.95, while the 512GB model is $899.95.
