LaCie 2big Quadra Raid
  • Up to 3TB* for backup and digital library management
  • Four convenient RAID modes
  • Two hot-swappable drives for non-stop data access
  • Quadruple interface for universal connectivity

Today LaCie unveils the 2big Quadra, a new two-bay RAID solution with up to 3TB of capacity for high speed-demanding applications, as well as for backup and storage use. With four RAID modes including RAID 0 and RAID 1, and a convenient hot-swap feature, it offers optimal performance and data protection.

Developed for maximum speed, the 2big’s native RAID controller preserves computer resources and provides professional workstations with lightning-fast data transfers, which reach up to 165MB/s** through eSATA 3Gbits/s in RAID 0. It also integrates perfectly with most applications that demand high speed, such as photo and pre-press processing or audio/video projects, including HDV post-production.

“Like its big brother the 4big Quadra, the LaCie 2big Quadra is the most complete two-bay solution of its category,” said Arnaud Prézelin, LaCie Product manager for Creative Pro Solutions. “Its four RAID modes and outstanding performance make it the perfect choice for backup and digital library management, as well as for SDV and HDV projects.”

In addition to offering protection through a full RAID 1 mode with hot-swappable disks for non-stop data access, the 2big Quadra also features a convenient Mixed mode. This mode provides both a RAID 0 partition for daily working data and a RAID 1 partition to archive important files. As a complete RAID storage solution, the 2big Quadra is compatible with Time Machine™ and comes with Genie Backup Manager Pro™ and Intego Backup Manager Pro™ for customizable backups and a computer recovery option.

Designed by Neil Poulton, the 2big is housed in a sturdy aluminum body that ensures reliable heat dissipation and quiet operation. Developed to enhance any workstation thanks to universal connectivity through eSATA 3Gbits/s, FireWire 800 and 400 and Hi-Speed USB 2.0, it is also stackable, rackable and even daisy-chainable through FireWire for optimal use of space, as well as expandibility.
