The 4big Quadra from Lacie offers up to 6 Terabytes (6,000GB) storage in a four-bay RAID package designed for small servers, creative pro workstations or offices that need large storage and backup capacity.
Lacie said the 4big Quadra supports seven RAID modes including RAID 0 and RAID 5 for optimal performance and data protection. Its burst transfer rates reach up to 200-230MBps through eSATA 3Gbits. This is the kind of speed ideally suited for photo processing, audio/video projects, pre-press, and even HD post-production.
The 4big Quadraâ€™s 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), according to Lacie.
The LaCie 4big Quadra will be available in 2TB, 4TB or 6TB in October at the suggested retail price starting at $849.
