HSINCHU, TAIWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- PROMISE Technology Inc., a global leading storage solution provider, has again won the Computex Best Choice Golden Award presented to the show's top storage solution. The Golden Award winner, the Pegasus2 R8, is the world's first hardware RAID 5/6 storage solution with Thunderbolt™ 2 technology which boasts staggering speeds of 20Gb/s. The impressive speed of the Pegasus2 R8 fully satisfies the high-performance demands of the rich media industry and data-intensive 3D and 4K video workflow environments. The Best Choice Award, held by the Taipei Computer Association and the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, is the major event every year at Computex Taipei. PROMISE came out on top in this fierce competition and won the Golden Award as the top storage solution for the second year in a row, proving the strength of PROMISE in the storage industry and that the company's solutions meet the most rigorous of standards.

"PROMISE has always used the needs of our customers as the core foundation to create solutions that will add value to how they work," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology. "This year marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of PROMISE, and having our Pegasus2 R8 win the Computex Best Choice Golden Award as the top storage solution during this historic year is extremely meaningful. We will continue to strengthen our storage solutions in the future to repay the affirmation of the judges and the support of our customers."

This year, the Computex Best Choice Awards were divided into 15 major categories, which saw close to 500 products competing for the prestigious honors. At the end of the competition, only one product in each category was presented with a Golden Award. The judges confirmed that the Pegasus2 R8 not only represents an outstanding technological innovation, but its performance enables it to be used as an integral part of a high-performance 4K video editing workflow. It is also certified by powerful partners, including Intel and Apple, which led the judges to award the Pegasus2 R8 with the highest honor, the Golden Award.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
