First RAID storage to use Thunderbolt: Promise Pegasus
If you head over to the Promise Pegasus product information page you’ll notice that it is the first RAID storage to use Apple’s new Thunderbolt port.
It requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or higher and of course the Thunderbolt technology port.
The features include either 4BT, 6TB, 8TB or 12TB of storage and supports RAID types 0, 1, 5, 50, 6, 60, and 10. It has two Thunderbolt ports so you can daisy chain to a display or other Thunderbolt capable devices. Like most modern RAIDs it is also capable of hot swapping hard drives and is Time Machine compatible.
It comes in two models, the R6 and R4. The R6 has 6 drive bay slots and the R4 comes with 4.
They will be available in Apple retail stores in Q2 2011. No pricing has been announced.
