What's lightning fast and stores everything you ever need? At CES this week, LaCie unveiled its all new 5big Thunderbolt RAID Series. Five drives times 4TB hooked up to a Thunderbolt connection? That means lots of data moving plenty fast.
Transfer speeds up to 785 MB/s are theoretically supported (real world speeds likely to be less) and the 5big supports RAID 0, 1 and JBOD configurations. Or a combination. Create one fast volume with three disks in RAID 0 and a safe volume with two disks in RAID 1. It's up to you.
The 5big ships in the same Neil Poulton-designed chassis you now know and, well, maybe you love it – maybe you don't.
The LaCie 5big is available in 10TB and 20TB capacities starting at $1,199.00 – and yes, they throw in a Thunderbolt cable too.
