About this item

The LaCie 2big Quadra 8TB 2-Bay RAID Hard Drive is a versatile hard drive array capable of daisy chaining up to six Thunderbolt-compatible devices in low power mode. With 5Gb/s max uplink and downlink speeds you can transfer your data quickly and efficiently. Connect this hard drive array via either one of the two integrated FireWire 800/400 ports or the USB 3.0 port.

Everything within the aluminum enclosure is kept cool with a heat sink chassis design, a redesigned fan and jumbo heat exhausts. Take advantage of a variety of RAID modes including the preconfigured RAID 0 as well as RAID 1. The preconfigured RAID 0 mode provides zero redundancy with improved performance.

In this configuration a single failure destroys the entire array. RAID 1 provides mirroring without parity or striping. Data is written identically to two drives, thereby producing a "mirrored set" ensuring data backup and security.
