LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 Series

LaCie 5big ThunderboltThe LaCie 5big is a 5-bay RAID system with speeds up to 1050MB/s, ideal for 4k video editing.

RAID Options

The LaCie 5big offers RAID modes 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and JBOD. Its hardware RAID controller delivers sustained performance, better flexibility, and the ability to connect the product to another computer while keeping the RAID configuration. Preconfigured in HFS+ and RAID 5, it is truly plug and play for Mac users and the RAID is easily customizable using the LaCie RAID Manager utility.

RAID modes 5 and 6 provide complete data protection against disk failure, while providing excellent speed and capacity. This is perfect for when you want to use a single storage product for both editing and backup. Even in the case of disk failure, the LaCie 5big’s hot-swappable disks mean zero data loss or downtime.

You could instead choose RAID 0 to maximize speed and capacity for current projects, and then move completed projects to archival storage incredibly quickly. Or, choose JBOD, which allows you to see and use each disk independently. With five working days a week, you can assign each disk to a daily backup. It’s even possible to set up multiple RAID volumes. For example, create both a 3-disk RAID 5 array for current projects, and a 2-disk RAID 1 array for backing up source files and final footage.

  • Capacities: 10TB, 20TB, 30TB
  • Interface: Dual Thunderbolt 2
  • RAID: Hardware RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10 & JBOD
