Promise Presents Thunderbolt 2 Enabled Pegasus2 and SANLink 2 Arrays

PROMISE Technology, Inc. announced Pegasus2 and SANLink2, storage solutions with Thunderbolt 2, the technology from Intel that delivers speeds of 20Gbps and allows for performance for creative workflows and 4K streaming and display environments.

The Pegasus2 line of hardware RAID solutions provides transfer speeds that accelerates and simplifies 4K workflows, offering RAID protection in a portable enclosure at maximum data transfer rates allowed through Thunderbolt 2.

SANLink2, a Thunderbolt 2 to 8Gb FC bridge, alleviates storage bottlenecks for desktop and portable computing systems by providing direct connectivity to an external FC SAN such as a VTrak x30 RAID storage system or a VTrak A-Class shared SAN filesystem for media video ingest and editing.

The company develops high-performance solutions and Thunderbolt enabled devices optimized for the video bandwidth requirements of the media and entertainment market. Thunderbolt 2 technology, the fastest PC I/O connection, has changed the industry by introducing capabilities and possibilities for content creators working with high-resolution files including HD, 3D, 2K, and 4K video. Running bi-directionally at 20Gbps - twice the 10Gbps bandwidth of Thunderbolt - Thunderbolt 2 is a technology for video creators and multimedia professionals allowing for simultaneous transfer and display of high-bandwidth 3D and 4K video files, which often requires 15Gbps.

Pegasus2, the external RAID storage solution, will be available in 4, 6 and 8-bay enclosures, and maximizes the available line rate of Thunderbolt 2 by providing fast transfer speeds for a number of 4K applications. With two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 6 devices can be attached - allowing for daisy chaining of Pegasus enclosure units, Apple Thunderbolt displays, or mini displayport devices.

As a RAID-5 solution with Thunderbolt 2 technology, it delivers enterprise hardware RAID protection in a portable package that can be taken almost anywhere - for photographers, filmmakers, and other multimedia professionals:

  • The Pegasus2 R4 8TB RAID system offers an entry point into the Thunderbolt 2- based storage family.
  • The Pegasus2 R6 12TB RAID system offers value at the lowest cost for both performance and protection.
  • The Pegasus2 R6 18TB RAID system offers the combination of performance, protection, and capacity.
  • The Pegasus2 R8 24TB RAID system is a fast available RAID storage with Thunderbolt 2.
  • The Pegasus2 R8 32TB RAID system offers high capacity and protection at Thunderbolt 2 transfer rates.

SANLink2 is a portable device bridge which provides dual 8Gbps FC ports and dual 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 ports and can be used to connect Thunderbolt-enabled systems to high-speed FC SAN, such as the VTrak x30 RAID storage system or a VTrak A-Class shared SAN storage appliance for scale out capabilities and real time raw video HD/4K footage ingest, editing, and collaboration.

It enables connectivity that provides flexibility to 4K workflows by removing limitations of systems previously unable to connect to a FC SAN, and is backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1.

Pegasus2 Highlights:

  • Supports maximum throughput allowed by Thunderbolt 2 interface
  • Supports simultaneous streaming, editing, and backup of 4K video
  • Dual Thunderbolt ports for daisy chaining
  • Hot-swappable drive bays for drive access and serviceability
  • Portable hardware RAID protection for offsite shoots
  • Massive storage capacity for backing up creative projects and digital libraries
  • Thunderbolt cable included

SANLink2 Highlights:

  • Enables FC connectivity on systems with a Thunderbolt 2 port
  • Dual 8Gbps FC Ports
  • Dual 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 ports with DisplayPort and device daisy-chain support
  • Supports OS X and OS X Server
  • Supports Xsan and StorNext filesystems
  • Supports all VTrak storage subsystems (4 and 8 Gbps FC)
  • Thunderbolt cable included

The Pegasus2 Series is available as a 4-bay, 6-bay or 8-bay RAID enclosure starting in November. Pegasus2 can be purchased from BackupWorks.com, Inc. call your Rep today at 866 801 2944.

SANLink2 will be available in December.
