LaCie’s 8big Rack Thunderbolt 2 in a 48TB is the fastest, highest–capacity Thunderbolt 2 storage solution on the market with speeds of up to 1330 MB/s and eight Seagate 6 TB 7200 RPM professional hard disks. With a single Thunderbolt cable you can get 48TB of storage.
For 4K video workflows, the LaCie 8big Rack rivals 8Gb/s Fibre Channel DAS solutions by offering better speeds, significantly simpler connections, and none of the complexities associated with an expensive Fibre Channel setup. Videographers can work directly from RAW files in Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere, get maximum quality from footage and see edits in real time.
The LaCie 8big Rack delivers full component redundancy, hardware RAID 5/6 for data redundancy, and dual Thunderbolt 2 ports that enables expansion potential of a single Mac Pro to have up to 1.7PB. It fits all of this — and more — into a 1U casing that saves valuable space in server cabinets.
The LaCie 8big Rack 48 TB (US$4,999.99) is available now through LaCie and its resellers. The product is also available in four–disk 12 TB ($1,699.99) or eight–disk 24 TB (2,799.99) configurations. Thunderbolt 2 is compatible with the same cables and connectors as first–generation Thunderbolt.
The 8big Rack is protected by a three–year limited warranty. The warranty includes complimentary web–based resources, expert in–house technical support and worldwide repair and/or replacement coverage.
