About this item

The LaCie Thunderbolt 2 TB Little Big Disk with Cable heralds a new era for storage performance. Featuring a preconfigured RAID 0 striped set with optional hard disks or SSDs through the 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt interface, it delivers astonishing transfer rates. It now features SATA III SSDs, which deliver 35% more speed than the previous generation. Achieve up to 635 MB/s (SATA III SSD) and 190 MB/s (hard disk). You can truly get the power of fibre channel rackmount storage - in a portable solution.

You can even daisy chain multiple LaCie Little Big Disks together to increase overall transfer rates. The more products you chain together, the higher performance you get. Daisy chain four LaCie Little Big Disks with SSDs to maximize Thunderbolt interface capabilities and reach transfer rates of around 800 MB/s (up to 782 MB/s with the hard disk version).

All in all, the LaCie Little Big Disk makes it possible to acquire, edit and play back multiple uncompressed A/V streams directly from the drive with ultimate ease and portability, no matter the size or resolution of the content. Use Disk Utility on your Mac OS to configure the LaCie Little Big Disk into a RAID array that suits your needs. It's possible to set it up as a mirrored RAID set (RAID 1), which provides data protection if one disk fails.

Alternatively, configure it as a striped RAID set (RAID 0) to maximize speed and capacity for large file storage and fast transfers. Beyond performance, Thunderbolt technology is the most flexible interface ever created. It permits daisy chaining up to six compatible peripherals and combines two existing communication protocols - one for data and the other for display - simultaneously over a single cable. Each cable provides two channels with 10 Gb/s bandwidth for both uplink and downlink.

This means that video and data can be pushed and pulled both ways without compromising bandwidth. As a result, Thunderbolt technology enables new and exciting ways to streamline your life at home and in the office. Simplify connections between your A/V devices and computer peripherals by daisy chaining them all together, so you only need a single port on your laptop. It's even mini DisplayPort backwards compatible so you can, for example, connect your high-end LaCie 324i display and your LaCie Little Big Disk to your Mac.
