Promise Technology Debuts Exciting New Storage Solutions @ #2015 NABShow

The new solutions from PROMISE provide users with ultimate transferability, the fastest connection to a Fibre Channel SAN, a cost-effective rich media NAS solution and the ability to scale, access and archive at petabyte volumes. PROMISE’s new solutions — as well as its complete rich media product portfolio — will be featured in live broadcast and video workflow demonstrations at its NAB display (booth #SL12109). Pegasus2 R2+ is the latest addition to PROMISE’s line of Thunderbolt™ 2 RAID storage solutions. Pegasus2 R2+ provides ultimate transferability, and is designed to be a Thunderbolt media ingest station with 6TB of RAID 0/1/JBOD configurable storage on two hot-swappable hard-disk drives (HDDs). The R2+ comes with a media bay with optional pods, including a small form factor 1TB HDD pod, SSD reader and SD/CF card reader pods. The innovative design of the R2+ makes data migration easier than ever before, and it also offers the flexibility of dual Thunderbolt 2 ports and USB 3.0.

SANLink2 16G FC boosts a user’s portable and desktop Thunderbolt interfaces to 16G speeds by connecting them seamlessly to the Fibre Channel SAN. SANLink2 16G FC comes standard with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports and dual 16G FC ports – ideal for creative professionals who deal with large data transfers on a daily basis. SANLink2 16G FC is whisper quiet, maintains a small eco-footprint and supports OS X and PROMISE’s entire VTrak series of products. Vess R2600 PRO is a fast, reliable and cost effective storage solution for multi-user rich media compressed workflows. Delivering multi-user scale up capability and fast NAS connectivity via dual active 10Gbit Ethernet controllers, Vess R2600 PRO is ideal for compressed workflows using popular non-linear editors such as Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and Apple Final Cut Pro X. Vess R2600 PRO is a perfect content distribution solution for many small unstructured data media files and can support up to 22 ProRes streams (ProRes 422 HQ [1080 at 29.97fps]) and 6 streams of 4K ProRes (PreRes4444 10bit QuadHD 3 [840×2160 @23.98fps] ) across any number of NAS clients. Vess R2600 is optimized for end-to-end workflows, making it ideal for mid-sized businesses requiring a rich media NAS solution that delivers enterprise RAID reliability and performance, no matter whether they are ingesting, editing, delivering or archiving content.

“With the debut of Pegasus2 R2+ and SANLink2, we are proud to not only offer the most complete portfolio of Thunderbolt devices on the market but to also deliver new solutions that provide incredible flexibility and simplicity,” said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. “The media and entertainment industry evolves very quickly and it places a high priority on innovating and delivering new solutions that will help broadcasters and video professionals work more efficiently and easily. This is why we have expanded our range of solutions with new offerings like Vess R2600 PRO and VSky A-Series which are perfect complements to the multiple solutions PROMISE offers for single and multi-user access, editing, sharing and distribution of media.”

Rounding out the new offerings from PROMISE is VSky A-Series – a scale-out storage solution designed for multi-petabyte environments, making it ideal for backup/archive and content delivery. It offers a unified storage appliance architecture which supports Object, Block (iSCSI) and File (NAS)-based storage, and provides key features such as thin provisioning and local and remote replication. With VSky A-Series, users can conveniently monitor all software and hardware from a single web interface. VSky A-Series can be deployed as the A1100, a 1U appliance that connects to PROMISE Vess and VTrak storage, or as the A1970, a high-density 4U 70 bay, top loaded storage server solution.
