LaCie 2big Thunderbolt Series - hard drive array


LaCie 2big Thunderbolt Series - Hard drive - 8 TB - 2 bays - 2 x HD 4 TB - Thunderbolt (external)

The LaCie 2big 8TB Thunderbolt hard drive is one of LaCie's fastest and most versatile hard drives. Customizable RAID configuration enables this business-class hard drive to achieve data transfer rates of up to 327 MB/s.

In terms of flexibility, this LaCie hard drive is considered the best external hard drive for Mac computers. When used with the Mac OS and LaCie driver utilities, the drive offers two RAID configurations: mirrored RAID for guaranteed data protection in case of drive failure or striped RAID for maximum speed and the data transfer rates. In striped RAID configuration, two daisy-chained LaCie 2big hard drives can deliver read rates of 555 MB/s.

Equipped with two 4TB hot-swappable hard drives, this LaCie 2big Thunderbolt hard drive offers a huge amount of storage space, making it perfect for heavy data users. For added convenience, this LaCie hard drive features two Thunderbolt ports, enabling the daisy-chaining of up to six Thunderbolt peripherals to Mac computers without the use of additional cables. This hard drive can also be daisy-chained to the LaCie 2TB d2 Quadra USB 3.0 hard drive for added speed and storage space.

Performance Comparison

 

RAID for Speed or Security



Use Disk Utility on your Mac OS to configure the 2big Thunderbolt Series into a RAID array that suits your needs. It's possible to set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which provides data protection if one disk fails. Thanks to its removable disks, you can simply replace a disk, with zero data loss and no work interruption.

Alternatively, configure it as a striped RAID set (RAID 0) to maximize speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers. It even supports JBOD, which lets you assign each disk to a specific data storage task. For instance, you can put backups for even weeks on one disk, and odd weeks on the other.

LaCie also offers the RAID Monitor software for your 2big Thunderbolt Series. It alerts you when a disk needs maintenance, identifies which drive has failed, and helps you to resolve the issue.




Daisy Chain to Multiply Options



Thunderbolt technology is the most flexible interface ever created. With dual Thunderbolt ports on the 2big, you can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt peripherals together. That means you don't need to buy a hub to connect multiple devices to a single Thunderbolt port on your computer. In addition, it increases the total amount of storage you can make available to your Mac.

Daisy chaining multiple 2bigs even pushes overall performance to more than 670MB/s for your most data-intensive tasks. Thunderbolt technology is also mini-DisplayPort compatible. For example, you can connect a display and a 2big to your Mac via a single Thunderbolt cable.





Aluminum Reliability and Security


The 2big's advanced dual cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. Its solid-aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently. In addition, its thermo-regulated fan turns on and off according to internal temperature. As a result, it cools the components while reducing electricity usage. For more energy savings, the front power button even lets you turn off the product without breaking a daisy chain connection.




Designed for Professionals

The 2big Thunderbolt Series was painstakingly designed to integrate seamlessly into professionals' workspace. The ultra-quiet cooling fan makes the 2big perfect for even the most noise-sensitive creative environments. What's more, you can stand it alone vertically, or lay it horizontally on your desk to stack with multiple products. Even neatly stack it with the LaCie d2 Desk Rack or standard 19" Rackmount Kit.

Awesome Device, 2013-08-14
By RNoelle 
I've just recently discovered the speed of Thunderbolt. It's just amazing. I don't have to make massive data transfers anymore, just work directly from the drive. The unit itself is well built, and seems to be very solid. I love it.

Very Fast, 2013-10-10
By Gaylord K. 
This is an excellent RAID drive. The design of the enclosure is pretty solid, the drive is very quiet, and blindly fast thanks to the dual Thunderbolt ports. I use it for video editing, and it does a great job.

Great Drive, 2013-11-19
By Alex R. 
This product is very good. I love the dual thunderbolt ports and the hot swap bays for the drives. I have mine as a RAID1 running as the main backup drive for my projects and it's been doing a great job. The speed is fabulous even with the mirrored drives.

Excellent!, 2014-01-07
By Honor A. 
Bought this drive some time ago and find it extremely good at what it does. It's brilliant for transferring large amounts of data very quickly, and when I use it for video editing it has no issues with multiple HD streams. I've only tried the Raid 0 mode and it gives me excellent speeds.

Great Product, 2014-01-23
By Sockeye 
Great drive. It combines all the must have features, of speed, capacity, Raid capability, and reliability, all with a 3-year warranty. I personally think that if you have a thunderbolt capable computer, and rely on data in any way you should look no further.
