Promise Technology J4 overview

  • 1Description

The 2TB Pegasus J4 2.5" Thunderbolt External RAID Enclosure with 4 SATA HDDs from Promise Technology is a disk array with four 2.5" SATA 500GB 5400rpm hard disk drives installed, for a total data storage capacity of 2TB. Instead of these drives, the system could support optional 7200rpm HDDs or SSDs (solid state drives).

The array is equipped with two Thunderbolt 10Gb/s interfaces (cables sold separately) and delivers data transfer speeds of up to 386.82MB/s read and 385.21MB/s write. It can be set up in a variety of RAID backup configurations, including RAID 0, 1 and JBOD, giving you the flexibility to choose higher data storage capacity or greater data protection.

The system supports daisy chaining up to 6 Thunderbolt-compatible devices. It is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.8, 10.7.4, 10.7.5, 10.8 and 10.8.2, and supports Time Machine. The enclosure is constructed from durable, lightweight aluminum.

Data storage capacity of 2TB, with four 500GB 5400rpm SATA hard disk drives installed. The system could also support optional 7200rpm HDD's or SSDs (solid state drives)
Connects to a computer via two Thunderbolt 10Gb/s interfaces (cables sold separately). Delivers up to 386.82 MB/s read speeds and 385.21 MB/s write speeds with the included drives
Choose from a variety of RAID backup configurations, including RAID 0, 1 and JBOD, giving you the flexibility to choose higher data storage capacity or greater data protection. RAID 0 offers no redundancy, so it gives you the least amount of data protection, but offers improved performance and additional storage (100% capacity). RAID 1 creates an exact copy (mirroring without parity or striping) of a set of data on 2 or more disks, for increased protection but reduced capacity and transfer speed. JBOD is Just a Bunch of Disks, offering no redundancy and therefore very little protection. Each disk is accessed directly as an independent drive. It differs from RAID 0 in that it does not truncate the other drives to the size of the smallest disk in the array. The hard drive array supports daisy chaining up to 6 Thunderbolt-compatible devices, meaning you can combine high levels of data protection with high capacity and transfer speeds by configuring 2 daisy chained J4 arrays in a RAID 10 (RAID 1 + RAID 0)
Combine with a Mac mini to create a cost-effective server-storage solution. Benefit from the freedom to add more devices when you require additional storage capacity
Compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.8, 10.7.4, 10.7.5, 10.8 and 10.8.2. Supports Time Machine
Constructed from durable, lightweight aluminum
