    The PROMISE Pegasus2 R2+ 6TB RAID system offers an affordable entry point into PROMISE's Thunderbolt 2 based storage family and features a media bay and Pods for convenient transfer of images and video from multiple media formats.

    Media Bay and Pods for creative workflows

    Pegasus2 R2+ is an affordable Thunderbolt 2 storage system with hardware RAID 0/1 on two removable 7200 rpm hard drives. It features a media bay, which accepts optional Pods to transfer files across multiple media formats. A CF/SD Card Reader Pod is included in the shipped configuration — just plug in your CF and SD cards to download your pictures or video to edit at Thunderbolt 2 speeds. You can also use an optional SSD Reader Pod to directly plug in your SSD from your video camera and download at blazing speeds. A 1TB HDD Pod lets you backup critical data and archive or transport to other machines. Each Pod also includes a USB 3.0 port and cable to allow independent use. The R2+ enclosure also features a USB 3.0 port to use with non-Thunderbolt systems

    Simple, flexible and cost-effective backup solution for SOHO

    Pegasus2 R2+ with RAID 0/1 provides you enough capacity to back up your irreplaceable digital media, documents and also your entire computer or workstation with Time Machine in OS X. Reconfigure with RAID1 to provide a mirror backup of your critical data.

    Easy to use, quiet, and eco-smart

    Pegasus2 systems are user-friendly and come pre-configured straight out of the box, so you can simply plug in and start using them. You can access status, management tools and advanced settings via the built-in PROMISE utility. Engineered to be eco-friendly and RoHS compliant with a compact footprint, Pegasus2 R2+ is perfect for SOHO and SMB environments.

    Thunderbolt 2

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    With Thunderbolt 2 now built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect up to three 4K displays at once. Thunderbolt 2 gives you up to 20 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch.

    Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.
