LaCie 4big Quadra RAID

LaCie today announced the 4big Quadra, the most complete four-bay RAID solution for small servers, creative pro workstations or offices that need large storage and backup capacity, superior speed and advanced security. Offering capacities of up to 6TB (6000GB) and a versatile hot-swap feature, the 4big Quadra supports seven RAID modes including RAID 0 and RAID 5 for optimal performance and data protection.

Thanks to its native RAID controller that conserves computer resources, the 4big offers burst transfer rates reaching up to 200-230MB/s* through eSATA 3Gbits. This solution integrates perfectly with most applications that demand high speed, such as photo processing, audio/video projects, pre-press, and even HD post-production. Compatible with Time Machine, the 4big also comes with Genie Backup Manager Pro and Intego Backup Manager Pro for customizable backup and computer recovery.

?The LaCie 4big Quadra definitely sets a new standard in RAID Technology for creative professionals and small sever backups,? said Arnaud Pr?zelin, LaCie Product manager for Creative Pro solutions. ?For instance, the 4big Quadra enables digital content creators to work on multiple HD video streams or to manage RAW photos libraries with live effects.?

The 4big Quadra not only sets a new standard in RAID technology and performance, but was also designed with the modern professional office in mind. Its stackable and chainable design helps to save space, and it is expandable and scalable up to four units (providing up to an amazing 24TB capacity and 600 MB/s transfer rates). The 4big Quadra?s universal connectivity (with eSATA, Firewire 400/800, and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interfaces) helps to ensure maximum compatibility with any Mac or PC.

Compared to traditional RAID towers, it saves up to 80 percent more energy, and its revolutionary ultra-reliable cooling system is almost 50 percent quieter, making it the perfect choice for creative professionals. The technology, performance and design of the 4big Quadra make it an ideal addition to any workspace.

The LaCie 4big Quadra will be available in 2TB, 4TB or 6TB in October from LaCie direct and widely available via LaCie?s specialized dealer network at the suggested retail price starting at $899.00 (excluding VAT). For more information, visit www.lacie.com.

The ability to rig a quartet of these in one spot for a grand total of 24TB capacity is just mouth watering. The LaCie 4big Quadra will come in 2TB, 4TB and 6TB configurations that will retail for $849, $1,299, and $1,749, respectively.
