Pegasus2Overview:

The Pegasus2 M4 is a mini 4-bay RAID storage solution featuring 2.5" drives that is designed for users who require a portable solution for external storage for their Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, and Windows Thunderbolt 2 computers.

The PROMISE Pegasus2 Series with Thunderbolt 2 technology delivers blistering performance to professionals creating rich, ultra-high resolution media. Pegasus2 maximizes the available line rate of Thunderbolt 2, enabling video creators to transfer and display 4K video files simultaneously. Pegasus2, the world's first RAID 5 solution with Thunderbolt 2 technology, enables pros and enthusiasts to create, edit and view live 4K video streams, while simultaneously backing up the files to their Pegasus2 (or multiple daisy-chained Pegasus2 drives) while still being able to use the same cables and connectors as the previous generation.

Pegasus has become the benchmark by which all Thunderbolt storage is measured. Simplify and accelerate your workflow. Safely backup massive creative projects. Create, edit, view, and share brilliant 3D and 4K video.

ThunderboltThe Absolute Fastest

The Pegasus2 is the fastest and the only Thunderbolt 2 enabled hardware RAID storage available in the market. Showcasing Intel's revolutionary Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, the Pegasus2 boasts a staggering speed of 20Gb/s - more than enough to effortlessly handle and accelerate any 3D or 4K (Ultra-HD) workflow environment.

Windows compatible

Pegasus works with Window environments, too. For example, you could build an amazing system with Promise Windows compatible Thunderbolt 2 solutions and HP Z Workstations for exceptionally fast connectivity, enabling users to push the limits of their creativity.

Perfect Partner for the Mac Pro

Synergize the ultimate innovation of the new Mac Pro and Thunderbolt 2 with the capacity and performance of the industry’s fastest storage solution, Pegasus2. Multiply the Mac Pro’s flash storage capacity by daisy-chaining multiple Pegasus2 systems to achieve massive amounts of additional storage space.
