    There's absolutely no messing around with the Promise Pegasus2. Based around Thunderbolt 2, the most advanced I/O ever created, this 8-Bay Pegasus2 R8 comes with 32TB of RAW capacity over 8x 4TB drives for blistering I/O performance for creative professionals in media, photography, broadcast and content creation. Perfect for those working in 4K environments and with the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro, the Pegasus2 enables professionals and enthusiasts to create, edit and view live 4K video streams in real time, even while backing up data. This model represents the fastest available RAID solution with Thunderbolt 2.

    Thunderbolt 2 offers the most flexible interface allowing you to work, edit and distribute huge amounts of data thanks to the 20Gb/s bandwidth. This R8 high-capacity model comes in a configuration of 8x 4TB SATA-based hot-swappable 3.5" drives and offers the best combination of capacity, data protection and the fastest performance in the Thunderbolt 2 Pegasus2 product lineup. You'll have no reason to worry about further expansion as you can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt devices from a single Thunderbolt port for multiple RAID arrays, displays and even PCI-e expansion chassis and docking stations.

    It's not just the sheer speed you'll come to love with the Pegasus2 but the data security too. This 8-Bay model supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 and 50 giving you the flexibility to chose your perfect mix of performance and fail-safe redundancy. The drive bays are hot-swappable too for effortless drive access and serviceability securing your data should a drive fail. Unleash the power within the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with huge expandability that takes full advantage allowed by Thunderbolt 2. In the box you'll find your 32TB R8 Pegasus2 bundled with a Thunderbolt cable so you can get started straight away.
