Pegasus R4 and R6 are the world’s first 4-bay and 6-bay
high performance hardware RAID solutions to unleash the
performance advantage of Thunderbolt technology. With
over 800 MB/s throughput and up to 12 TB capacity, the R4
and R6 are ideal for professional NLE digital media workstations, small server high demand direct attached storage
(DAS), power users, or anyone who wants quiet, high-capacity external storage with lightning fast performance and
enterprise class RAID performance and data protection in
a compact, user friendly system.
About Thunderbolt
Technology
Conveniently Runs Without the Power Adapter
Configure RAID Based on Your Needs
The Pegasus J2 conveniently runs in bus mode, which means you do not need to use the power adapter.
Just the Thunderbolt cable and a computer is enough for high-speed data transfer. To supercharge
throughput, plug in the power adapter for maximum performance.* Now you can backup huge files
and even edit digital media, on location, on a plane, in transit, wherever you happen to be, at amazing
speed.
The Pegasus J4 is flexible to suit your data requirements. The four storage disks can be set up as a
striped RAID set, as a mirrored RAID set, or as a JBOD. If you need super fast speed for video editing,
configure the J4 in RAID 0. If you need the data protection of disk mirroring, configure the J4 in RAID 1
so your data will be safe even if an installed disk fails. Even better, combine both needs and configure
two daisy chained J4s in a RAID 10 (RAID 1 + RAID 0) for performance and redundancy.
*Note: To achieve maximum throughput of over 750MB/s requires using the Pegasus J2 power adapter
plugged into a power outlet.
RAID 0
RAID 1
or
Thunderbolt technology is a new, high-speed, dual-protocol I/O technology developed by Intel and
Apple, designed for performance, robustness, simplicity, and flexibility. Thunderbolt delivers two channels of 10Gb/s (1.25GB/s) per port of blistering performance. PCI Express (PCIe) expansion bus protocol
is integrated with DisplayPort protocol in a single cable for simultaneous data transmission and video
output with no performance degradation. The throughput speed of Thunderbolt enables transfer of
terabytes in a small fraction of time of competing connection technologies. The huge bandwidth allows
digital media professionals to edit HD video stored on the Pegasus with NLE software (such as Apple
Final Cut or Adobe Premiere), improve work flow efficiency, save time and money.
Pegasus J4

The Ultimate in Versatility
The Pegasus J4 is the first 4-bay 2.5" HDD/SSD small form factor high-performance Thunderbolt JBOD
storage solution. It is perfect for use in non-linear editing of digital media or other data storage applications where very high throughput/very low latency is essential. The compact, efficient design of the J4
makes it is easy to pack up and carry. With a Mac Mini server or new Thunderbolt™ enabled computer,
the J4 is a key component of a mobile video production solution.

The Fastest Storage in Your Pocket!
Don’t let its size fool you, the Pegasus J2 is fast. Powered by 6G mSATA flash with striped RAID (RAID 0),
the Pegasus J2 reaches write speeds of 550 MB/s and read speeds of 750 MB/s! Transfer, playback or edit
media directly from this featherweight drive with amazing speed.
J2 performance 800 700 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 RAID 0 or striped RAID is used for multiple drive systems configured for speed, but this performance advantage is pointless if there is no way to deliver that performance at bus speed. This is
why Thunderbolt is such a huge leap beyond competing connection technologies. Thunderbolt
uses the widely used expansion bus standard PCI Express, to achieve I/O transfers of more than
800 MB/s. Prior to Thunderbolt the only option for achieving that level of performance in a direct
attached storage system was to use a Fibre Channel connection, a much more expensive and
cumbersome option that is typically used only for large enterprise database storage needs. The
Thunderbolt connection achieves optical fibre speed over copper.
Daisy Chain to Optimize Performance
With lightning fast I/O rates, the J4 delivers a massive and unprecedented leap in the performance of
portable hard drive based data storage for professionals and amateurs in post production. Daisy chain
up to six Pegasus J4 devices together or connect it to your Pegasus R4 or R6 and watch the transfer rates
climb to amazing levels. The Thunderbolt daisy chain even functions at full speed if any of the connected devices are powered off.
Daisy Chain
750 600 More Than Just Fast Performance
This ingenious technology is what makes it possible to create compact Pegasus R4 and R6, that
delivers data throughput previously available exclusively to large enterprise storage. The result
is that videographers can ingest, edit, and playback multiple streams of uncompressed HD (8-bit
and 10-bit) video and graphic artists can manipulate and archive high resolution graphics on a
system that can be easily carried to a shoot location.
Creativity on the Fly
The Pegasus J2 is a dual mSATA SSD (256GB or 512GB) storage mini marvel the size of a smart phone and it
weighs just 140 grams. The J2 goes wherever you need to work, away from the studio — even off the grid in
Bus Mode — or use this pocket-sized powerhouse to showcase your portfolio. Small and very fast, the J2 is
great for media pros on the go.
