LaCie Introduces Three Storage Solutions for Video Professionals

Today LaCie announced a new 8TB model of the LaCie 4big Quadra and three new product combinations for video professionals. LaCie also premiered the 4big Quadra Bundle, which boasts capacities up to 32TB and fast transfer speeds up to 700MB/s. LaCie also announced today a new 8TB model of the 4big Quadra, an integral part of the 32TB LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle.

LaCie 4big Quadra is a 4-bay RAID solution featuring four hot-swappable disks and seven RAID modes including RAID0 and RAID5. Featuring three options for customization, the LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle includes the choice of two or four 4big Quadra, a LaCie eSATA II PCI Express Card 3Gb/s 4Ports, and a LaCie Rescue Kit (available with Bundles 16TB and 32TB). The Rescue Kit, which consists of a spare hard disk and power supply, is designed for workflow respect in case of common storage issue with simple maintenance, hot-swappable drive replacement and automatic rebuild.

  • 8TB LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle: 2 x 4TB LaCie 4big Quadra, LaCie eSATA II PCI Express Card 3Gb/s 4Ports
  • 16TB LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle: 4 x 4TB LaCie 4big Quadra, LaCie eSATA II PCI Express Card 3Gb/s 4Ports, and LaCie Rescue Kit
  • 32TB LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle: 4 x 8TB LaCie 4big Quadra, LaCie eSATA II PCI Express Card 3Gb/s 4Ports, and LaCie Rescue Kit

Compared to traditional RAID towers, the 4big Quadra Bundle has been optimized for ultimate efficiency, including an automatic standby mode to reduce power consumption of each tower by up to 80 percent compared to standard 4-bay RAID tower. Ideal for noise sensitive working environments, each 4big Quadra also incorporates the ultra-reliable Noctua cooling system, making it almost 50 percent quieter than comparable systems. Designed in aluminum by the product designer Neil Poulton, the 4big Quadra design is stackable and space-saving, fitting into modern working environments.

Also made for Sever backup, the LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle comes with Genie Backup Manager Pro for Windows and Intego Backup Manager Pro for Mac, supporting customizable backups and computer recovery.

The LaCie 4big Quadra Bundles will be available for the suggested retail price starting at $1999.00 (excluding VAT). The 8TB LaCie 4big Quadra and 32TB LaCie 4big Quadra Bundle will be available in May.
