Promise Technology’s Built-to-Order (BTO) Solutions Enable Custom Configurations to Optimize Performance for Adobe Creative Cloud

Power users can devote faster SSDs to Adobe apps

LAS VEGAS - NAB Show - April 3, 2018 – Promise Technology Inc., a leading storage solutions provider for creative and IT applications, today announced that users of Promise’s industry-leading Pegasus3 series of desktop RAID storage solutions can now configure their systems to realize the highest-possible performance levels when using Adobe Creative Cloud® video tools like Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and Adobe After Effects® CC.

Promise recently announced that its North American customers can use the new Built-to-Order (BTO) platform – found at Promise’s eStore – to build their Pegasus3 systems with their preferred combination of Solid State Drives (SSD) and Hard Disk drives (HDD). This enables them to create the exact combinations of speed, redundancy and higher capacities they need for their individual workflows.

Those capabilities now extend to Adobe’s suite of powerful video apps. For example, allocating one or more SSDs for cache with Adobe applications, while reserving the spinning disks for capacity, will significantly improve the Adobe applications’ performance, regardless of the host machine’s internal memory.

“Our customers have told us they need flexible configurations, and we are meeting that need by providing BTO options with SSDs for our Pegasus3 line of Thunderbolt3 storage arrays,” said Vijay Char, president, Promise Technology USA. “We expect this to be very popular among power users looking to boost performance, redundancy or capacity, or even all three.”

On their own, apps like Adobe Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC give users the world’s best tools for video editing and motion graphics. Together with Adobe Creative Cloud, they offer an unparalleled ecosystem of interconnected apps, like Adobe Photoshop® CC and services, like Adobe Stock, empowering filmmakers and artists to deliver stories that stand out.

“Our customers are always in need of reliable, high-performance storage solutions for video workflows,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Adobe professional video. “It’s exciting to see the built-to-order solutions which offer customized choices for content creators.”

Pricing and Availability

Price varies based on options selected, with custom-configured Pegasus3 models starting at approximately $1,299. Custom Pegasus3 solutions are available in North America only.
