The Pegasus2 R6 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.

question

Do the Pegasus2 RAIDs internally support encryption, or do I need to reformat them with Apple's Disk Utility as Mac OS Extended (Jounaled, Encrypted) ?
Asked by: Scott S.
The Pegasus2 R6 does not support hardware encryption. You would need to reformat with an encrypted filesystem as you suggested, or use a third party option.
