The Promise Technology 24TB Pegasus2 R8 is a Thunderbolt 2 RAID storage array designed for simultaneous streaming, editing, and backup of high-resolution videos and large multimedia files. This storage array's Thunderbolt 2 interface offers high-speed connectivity. The Pegasus2 R8 stores up to 24TB of data spread across eight 3TB 7200 rpm SATA drives. Actual storage capacity will differ according to the RAID configuration. These drives are hot-swappable for easy access and come pre-configured in RAID 5 mode, which is optimized for data protection, capacity, and performance. RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60 are also supported; each level offers configuration options for capacity, data protection, redundancy, and speed.

The Pegasus2 R8 storage array has dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, one port for direct system attachment and another port for daisy-chaining up to 6 Thunderbolt 2 devices. This storage is formatted in the HFS+ file system for Mac and is compatible with Time Machine in OS X, which automatically backs up your entire Mac system.

Thunderbolt 2
The Pegasus2's Thunderbolt 2 interface is sufficient for handling and accelerating 3D or 4K (UHD) workflows. Thunderbolt 2 uses the same cable as the previous generation but has double the available bandwidth for a maximum throughput of 20Gb/s.
4K Workflows
The bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2 and the Pegasus2 is designed to give professionals the ability to edit and view live 4K streams while backing up the same file to a single or daisy-chained Pegasus2 storage array system.

      Comments about Promise Technology 24TB Pegasus2 R8 Thunderbolt 2 RAID Storage Array:

      I was moving from a 2007 Mac Pro to the new 12 core Mac Pro and the Promise 24TB is the best choice for my working RAID.

      The unit comes set as Raid 5 which is great and all I had to do was plug in the thunderbolt 2 cable and let it run through its scan. The scan takes a while but once done you are ready to work at flying speeds on the new Mac Pro with thunderbolt 2.

      You won't find a better Raid with thunderbolt 2 for the price.

      Right out of the box we're getting 790 write and 980 read. Amazing. Remember when a RAID system cost 10k and was only 1/4 the speed? 3 4K streams at 1/2 res in realtime through FCP. Love it.
