New enclosure supports up to 32TB of storage capacity
Promise Technology today announced the availability of Pegasus2, the only RAID 5 storage solution in the market thus far that is designed to work with Thunderbolt 2-enabled systems such as the forthcoming new Mac Pro. The enclosure -- designed for photographers, video professionals, and other users needing extremely high data transfer rates -- delivers 20Gbps of bandwidth, allowing for simultaneous transfer and display of high-bandwidth 3D and 4K video files.
The Pegasus2 boasts dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for daisy chaining other peripherals, and removable bays with hot-swappable drives. A single Thunderbolt cable is provided for the convenience of users. All three models are capable of RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 using SATA-3 3.5-inch drives.
The Pegasus2 Series is now available as a four-bay, six-bay or eight-bay RAID enclosure with capacities ranging from 8TB through 32TB through the Promise network of distributors and value added resellers. Pricing on the new enclosure line has not yet been made available.
