PROMISE unleash world-first Thunderbolt 2 storage

Now that you’ve lined up your new Mac Pro or MacBook Pro with Retina display, it’s time to think about what’s on offer to use up those Thunderbolt 2 ports. Luckily, PROMISE have the answer, with the world’s first Thunderbolt 2-enabled storage – the Pegasus2 and SANLink2.

The Thunderbolt 2 standard is currently the fastest I/O connection out there, with a top speed of 20Gbps (twice that of the original Thunderbolt) and both the PROMISE Pegasus2 and PROMISE SANLink 2 storage solutions have been built specifically with Thunderbolt 2 in mind. That’s great news for anyone looking to edit 4K on the new Mac line-up, as it’ll let them fly through data transfers and keep their workflow as speedy as possible.

“SANLink2 and Pegasus2 have set new standards for performance and flexibility, creating a whole new realm of possibilities for multimedia pros and power users,” said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. “Being the first company to bring to market storage solutions with Thunderbolt 2 technology further validates PROMISE’s position as the leader in designing high-performance devices for the media and entertainment market – which revolutionizes the creative workflows of our customers so they can be ready for creating, editing, and delivering HD and 4K and beyond content.”
