Designed to work with today’s Thunderbolt 3 desktops and laptops running Windows 7 and 10, the Pegasus3 R4 12TB 4-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from Promise Technology is suited for tasks such as loading large files and databases, archiving images and important data, processing surveillance data, and backing up huge data sets. It offers up to 12TB of storage split over four hot-swappable 3TB 3.5″ hard drives, each of which utilizes one of the array’s four drive bays. The array itself is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, allowing users to daisy chain additional peripherals, such as dual 4K displays or a single 5K display.
The Pegasus3 R4 comes preconfigured in RAID 5, but supports a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 6, and 10, each of which offers speed, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available. Please be aware that RAID 0 does not support hot-swapping. Included is a 3.3′ Thunderbolt 3 cable and a power adapter. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty, with 24/7 web and chat support also being available. Also included is a free license of ChronoSync Pegasus Edition Backup Software for macOS.
