"Thunderbolt technology is giving the M&E industry a whole new level of performance and versatility," said Jason Ziller, director, Thunderbolt Marketing and Planning, Intel Corporation. "PROMISE's newest products make great use of Thunderbolt technology, and open up more creative possibilities for media creators and enthusiasts."

From its rich portfolio of high-performance storage solutions that are helping revolutionize the way media and entertainment professionals change the way they currently exploit digital applications, PROMISE will be featuring and demonstrating the following on its stand:

  • Pegasus -- the world's first hardware RAID storage solution providing lightning fast performance, in 4-bay & 6-bay direct attached storage configurations, all leveraging Intel's revolutionary Thunderbolt Technology,
  • SANLink -- a new generation of FC connectivity; and,
  • VTrak x30 -- bringing tomorrow's high-performance demands to the market today.

Intel's ground breaking Thunderbolt™ technology is a transformational I/O innovation that provides a leap in performance over current I/O technologies with 10 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth per channel. It significantly simplifies the end-user experience by concurrently supporting data (PCI Express*) and display (DisplayPort) connections over a single cable.

"Our Thunderbolt enabled high-performance storage solutions have been extremely well received by the worldwide market of M&E professionals who need ease-of-use, simplicity and lightning fast performance," said Alice Chang, CMO, PROMISE Technology. "We are very excited about our long-term collaboration with Intel which helps us keep our products state-of-the-art as we bring a new level of innovation to the market."

Thunderbolt products may be connected using electrical or optical cables. Thunderbolt technology enables flexible and innovative system designs by allowing multiple, high-performance, PCI Express and DisplayPort devices to attach to a computer through a single physical connector. For time-sensitive data, such as video and audio during creation and playback, data transfers can be critical to the success of the work. Thunderbolt technology was specifically designed with video and audio applications in mind with inherently low latency and highly accurate time synchronization capabilities. PROMISE Pegasus comes in 4-bay and 6-bay configurations ranging from four to 12TB capacity.
