As a top DJ playing 350 shows a year at clubs and events around the world, La Fuente understands that fast, safe and reliable external storage is essential to efficiently producing and protecting the HD videos and music he loves to create. Looking for a solution that delivered lightning-fast speed and reliable data protection, La Fuente turned to PROMISE Technology and the Pegasus R4.
