Promise Technology Debuts New RAID Storage
In a move that addresses new Mac owners by providing them with the capacity and performance needed for even the most demanding projects, Promise Technology today announced the addition of four new models to its lineup of Pegasus desktop RAID storage system. The new Pegasus3 R4, R6 and R8 models feature more capacity — 16, 36 and 64 (and 80) terabytes (TB), respectively — and bring 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt3 performance to rich media workflows.
The addition of new Pegasus3 models “also continues Promise’s tradition of being in lockstep with the latest from Apple, as they are an ideal storage complement to the new iMac and MacBook Pro offerings,” according to the company. In fact, Pegasus3 solutions were showcased during Apple’s keynote presentation at WWDC 2017 on June 5, alongside the just-announced iMac and MacBook Pro models. Pegasus3 models are tested, performance tuned and ready to ‘go out of the box’ for Mac users with a 1m 40 Gb/s Active Thunderbolt3 cable for easy, high-speed connectivity, Promise said.
Highly optimized for performance and content protection, the new Pegasus3 models are designed for generating high-resolution video and rich media content, but also offer the safety and security of full-featured RAID protection. Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports provide fast connectivity and the ability to easily connect up to 6 daisy-chained devices on a single port.
Additionally, when combined with its Apollo Cloud personal cloud storage device, Promise’s lineup of Pegasus3 models allow creative professionals to securely synchronize and share small clips or low-resolution review files. Group members can review and comment via their mobile devices while on the go. Further enhancing the collaboration factor is the fact that, when combined with Promise’s SANLink Series, the new Pegasus3 models can be shared over a local workgroup.
The new Pegasus3 models will initially be available in North America.
