LaCie, the premium brand from Seagate Technology, announced at the 2014 NAB Show three new storage solutions featuring Thunderbolt 2 technology. The LaCie 8big Rack, 5big and 2big feature industry-leading speeds and the latest 6TB hard drives from Seagate. This combination of speed and capacity make these products ideal for 4K workflows. Built-in hardware RAID keeps data safe, while cutting-edge industrial design delivers user efficiency and stunning appearance.
The LaCie 8big Rack Thunderbolt 2 is the company’s first Thunderbolt 2 rackmount storage solution. Compact and stylish, the LaCie 8big Rack features up to eight 6 TB 7200 RPM hard drives from Seagate, for an impressive 48 TB in a mere 1U size. Delivering speeds of up to 1330 MB/s, it is the most powerful plug and play rackmount solution for 4K video editing.
Now featuring Thunderbolt 2 technology, hardware RAID 5 and industry-leading capacity, the new LaCie 5big is nearly two times faster – delivering speeds of up to 1050 MB/s*. Thanks to Seagate’s new 6TB 7200 RPM hard drives, it boasts a 20% capacity increase, which makes it the most compact 30 TB storage device on the market. With these advances, the new LaCie 5big gives video professionals huge capacity and ample bandwidth for improving 4K workflows – right on the desktop.
The new LaCie 8big Rack, 5big and 2big join the Little Big Disk (shipping since February 2014) to create the most comprehensive Thunderbolt 2 storage range on the market. LaCie will demonstrate these products at the NAB Show in Las Vegas from April 7-10, 2014. Customers attending the show are encouraged to stop by the LaCie booth (SL9927) to see first hand how these products excel in 4K workflows.
The LaCie 8big Rack, 5big and 2big, featuring Thunderbolt 2, will be available this quarter through the LaCie online store and LaCie resellers. Pricing will be announced when the product is available for purchase.
