As well as announcing the availability of their new limited edition Blade Runner external 4TB hard disk drive designed by Philippe Starck. Lacie has also unveiled their massive 20TB storage devices in the form of the LaCie 5big.
The LaCie 5big builds on the technology from the 2big Lacie storage devices but offers an impressive 20TB of storage starting at $1,200 directly from the LaCie website.
The LaCie 5big features speeds up to 785MB/s thanks to five 7200rpm/64MB cache hard disks preconfigured in RAID 0, within the 5big. The five hot swappable 5big disks enable users to customise their RAID configurations, to create lightning-fast volume with three disks in RAID 0 and a safe volume with two disks in RAID 1 if desired.
“Use the fast volume 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.”
