Benchmarking Performance of Pegasus R6 Thunderbolt RAID from Promise Technology Inc

In a previous video, shared on YouTube, I showed how to set up the Pegasus R6 Thunderbolt RAID from Promise Technology Inc. For those of you who are unaware, this is a fantastic new high-performance disk array for Apple computers – specifically iMacs and MacBooks with Thunderbolt technology.

I have now had the chance to benchmark its performance and have put a video here on YouTube summarising the results.

A written report is available for download as an Adobe Reader PDF file here.

Setting Up The Pegasus R6 Thunderbolt RAID

I have recently taken delivery of a Pegasus R6 Thunderbolt RAID from Promise Technology Inc. This is a fantastic new technology which gives speeds in excess of 500 MBytes/s and outperforms many Solid State Drives (SSDs). It is a great enabling technology for editing and storing high-resolution photos created by modern, top-end SLR cameras such as the Nikon D800.

In order to share my experiences, I have a made a short video here which shows how you can set it up. Another video will follow when I have tested its performance and benchmarked it – the test results are staggering! I just haven’t made a video yet – stay tuned!
