PROMISE Technology to Exhibit Thunderbolt 2 Technology With Pegasus2 Series at IDF 2013

PROMISE Pegasus2 Series Delivers Thunderbolt 2 Speeds for Creative Workflows and 4K Environments

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) - PROMISE Technology, Inc. announced today that they will be demonstrating at Intel's Developer Forum (IDF) the next generation Pegasus2 Series with Thunderbolt™ 2 Technology. PROMISE shipped the world's first storage solutions with the original Thunderbolt technology and continues its track-record as a leading innovator of storage solutions for the rich media space with the new Pegasus2 Series. 

Thunderbolt technology is an enormous enabler for video with its exceptional performance and bandwidth, and Thunderbolt 2 further embraces the growing 4K applications in media and entertainment, mobility and computing. Running bi-directionally at 20Gbps, double the bandwidth of Thunderbolt, Thunderbolt 2 is a breakthrough for video creators as it enables simultaneous 4K video file transfer and display. The advancement in bandwidth will enable professionals to edit and view live 4K streams while backing up the same file to a Pegasus2 system, all with the same cables and connectors as the previous generation.

The Pegasus2 Series is the first RAID 5 solution with Thunderbolt 2 technology, delivering portable RAID systems for offsite shoots and enabling quick and safe backups of terabytes of data in minutes. The Pegasus2 model on display at IDF 2013 maximizes the available line rate of Thunderbolt 2 to provide blistering fast transfer speeds to dramatically accelerate and simplify 4K workflows, and maximizes capacity while offering industry-leading RAID protection. Additionally, PROMISE will exhibit SANLink2 -- a Thunderbolt 2 to 8G Fibre Channel bridge -- which provides connectivity to PROMISE VTrak storage and PROMISE VTrak A-Class shared SAN solution, enabling 4K environments.

"PROMISE was the first company to ship Thunderbolt storage solutions in response to the insatiable demand for bandwidth by our customers in the media and entertainment market who are creating brilliant rich media content," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "With the industry now poised for the widespread adoption of 4K video, the Pegasus2 Series with Thunderbolt 2 technology will revolutionize how video creators are managing 4K workflows in addition to delivering unprecedented performance to artists and enthusiasts who love to create captivating content."

"By doubling the bandwidth to 20Gbps, Thunderbolt 2 is crucial for professionals and enthusiasts," said Jason Ziller, marketing director for Thunderbolt at Intel. "The PROMISE Pegasus2 Series maximizes how Thunderbolt 2 delivers performance that creates new possibilities for anyone working with 4K video, rich media content or data-intensive tasks."
