LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 20TB RAID Storage

LaCie 5big Thunderbolt

LaCie announced the 5big Thunderbolt Series, a massive and lightning-fast five-bay RAID storage solution with capacity up to 20TB and speeds up to 785MB/s thanks to five 7200rpm/64MB cache hard disks preconfigured in RAID 0. With this excellent combination of capacity and performance, video professionals have all they need for post-production work including the ability to edit multiple 2K uncompressed 10-bit streams.

With five disks, the LaCie 5big lets the user custom-make RAID configurations. Create a lightning-fast volume with three disks in RAID 0 and a safe volume with two disks in RAID 1. Plus the disks are hot-swappable, so the user can simply slide a new disk into the safe volume without switching off the device. Use the fast volume for use with Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere or Aperture, and the safe volume to back up projects.

The LaCie 5big allows video professionals to move from a heavy desktop workstation to a versatile laptop setup with fast and massive external storage. Their desktop setup stays in the office while the laptop goes on business trips. Plus, with dual Thunderbolt ports, the user can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt peripherals together.

The LaCie 5big can also be used as a JBOD array. With five working days a week, an IT manager can assign each disk to a daily backup. It is an ideal backup companion to a Mac Mini Server for businesses that need a professional IT setup.

Additionally, the LaCie 5big’s advanced dual cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. The system consists of three key components: an innovative heat-dissipating aluminum casing, a Noctua cooling fan and jumbo heat exhausts. Plus, it’s ultra quiet, which makes it perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments.

Price and Availability
The LaCie 5big Thunderbolt Series is available in 10TB ($1,199) and 20TB ($2,199) capacities. Thunderbolt cable included along with 3-year warranty.
