Product Description:

LaCie 5big 10TB (5 x 2TB) Installed Thunderbolt 2 DAS Array

For 4K and other bandwidth-hungry workflows, external storage needs to be fast, secure, reliable, and quiet. The new LaCie 5big fits the bill, delivering Thunderbolt 2 speeds for 4K video editing, up to 30TB capacity, and hardware RAID 5/6 for no-compromise data security.


Thunderbolt 2 Speeds for the 4K Era
• With Thunderbolt 2 technology, the interface is no longer the performance bottleneck. For the 5big, LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of the Thunderbolt 2 I/O, squeezing the absolute best speeds out of the hard disks. Add a hardware RAID controller and 7200RPM disks and the result is incredible, sustained speeds of up to 1050MB/s that turbocharge 4K workflows, file transfers, and backups.

RAID for Speed with Security
• 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 easily customize the RAID mode to suit your needs using the LaCie RAID Manager utility.

Advanced Cooling for Long-Term Reliability
• The LaCie 5big has a cutting-edge cooling system that ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. It consists of three key components: an innovative heat-dissipating aluminium casing, a Noctua cooling fan, and jumbo heat exhausts. For the enclosure, a solid-aluminium heat-sink design diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently than plastic casings.
