Transition: Three 6G SSDs

As noted on the transition overview page, the MPG system migration needs an enclosure for three 480GB OWC Mercury Elite Pro 6G SSDs.
Triple USB3 external drives is not appealing and would also require three USB3 ports, effectively forcing use of a USB3 hub with a cable to it and three cables fanning out to three drives. Not an exciting prospect.
Also, USB3 is not fast enough for full performance, so a Thunderbolt solution is needed: the Promise Pegasus J4 4-bay Thunderbolt enclosure.
With three SSDs housed and used as a striped RAID, there remains one bay for a 1.5
TB hard drive to be used as a backup drive.
UPDATE Feb 2014: the Pegasus J4 failed to work correctly and could not be used.
