Pegasus2Overview:

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.

Daisy-chain up to 6 Pegasus2 enclosure units or Thunderbolt peripherals for 6x the RAID 5/6 bandwidth

Unleashes your Creativity

Being away from the studio for a shoot doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the RAID protection and speeds of your SAN storage. Pegasus2 pairs together Thunderbolt 2 connectivity and enterprise-level hardware RAID protection in a compact, portable package that you can take with you almost anywhere. This makes it ideal for photographers, filmmakers, graphic designers, and other multimedia professionals.

New Pegasus2 R2+New Pegasus2 R2+

Pegasus2 R2+ is a Thunderbolt 2 hardware RAID 0/1 storage solution with USB 3.0 that includes two hot-swappable hard disk drives and a versatile media bay that now offers users the choice between four different interchangeable pods for convenient media exchange - a CF/SD Reader, SSD Reader, a 1TB HDD Pod and the new CFast 2.0 Reader Pod.   The CFast 2.0 Reader Pod provides a convenient and rapid way to transfer 4K content from the new generation of high-end cameras via CFast 2.0 media and is capable of supporting speeds up to 500 MB/s. Plus, each pod comes with USB 3.0 Micro-B for independent access, providing the convenience to take a Pod and work elsewhere away from the editing suite.  Data migration has never looked so easy!

Note that the USB 3.0 connection and Thunderbolt connection CANNOT be used at the same time.
A drive or connected device in the Media Bay is not detected when using the USB 3.0 connection.
