Promise Technology today announced Pegasus2 and SANLink2, the first storage solutions to use the new Thunderbolt 2 protocol. The Pegasus2 line of hardware RAID solutions accelerates and simplifies 4K workflows, offering RAID protection in a compact and portable enclosure at maximum data transfer rates allowed through Thunderbolt 2. SANLink2, a Thunderbolt 2 to 8G Fibre Channel bridge, alleviates storage bottlenecks for desktop and portable computing systems by providing direct connectivity to an external Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) such as a VTrak x30 RAID storage system or a VTrak A-Class shared SAN filesystem.

Pegasus2, the ideal external RAID storage solution, will be available in four-, six- and eight-bay hot-swappable enclosures, and maximizes the available line rate of Thunderbolt 2 by providing fast transfer speeds for a growing number of 4K applications. With two Thunderbolt 2 ports, six devices can be attached allowing for daisy chaining of Pegasus enclosure units, Apple Thunderbolt Displays, or Mini DisplayPort devices.

SANLink2 is a portable device bridge which provides dual 8Gbps Fibre Channel ports and dual 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 ports and can be used to connect Thunderbolt-enabled systems directly to a high-speed Fibre Channel SAN for scale out capabilities and real time raw video HD/4K footage ingest, editing, and collaboration. SANLink2 enables connectivity that provides flexibility to 4K workflows by removing limitations of systems previously unable to connect directly to a Fibre Channel SAN, and is backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1.

The Pegasus2 Series is available as a four-, six- and eight-bay RAID enclosure starting in November. Pegasus2 can be purchased from the Apple Online Store and through authorized dealers. No pricing is currently available.
