The Promise Technology 32TB 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 32TB of data and consists of eight 4TB 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 32TB Pegasus2 R8 Thunderbolt 2 Raid Storage Array:

      I use the product for a thunderbolt connection to my soon to be new MacPro. I have several terabytes of photo and other data and decided to bite the bullet and get enough capacity to grow for several years.
      I also have a 12 TB R6 with thunderbolt 1, which gave me comfort in buying the much more expensive and brand new thunderbolt 2 R8.
      Both units install easily, run with raid 5 which provides a hardware fail safe for one failed drive, operate very fast and, so far, have not presented any problems.
