Technical Information
  • Features the new Thunderbolt 2 interface which is able to sustain transfer speeds of up to 1330MB/s that dramatically increases the speed of 4K workflows, file transfers and backups.
  • Bulletproof reliability supported by full component redundancy. Fans, disks, and PSU are fully redundant and hot swappable, and user-serviceable.
  • An innovative cooling system prolongs component lifespan, featuring three efficient, thermo regulated cooling fans to drive airflow.
  • Thunderbolt 2 technology doubles the speed potential compared to the previous generation to 20Gb/s and enables simultaneous RAW 4K video editing and display.
  • The Thunderbolt 2 I/O offers dramatically simpler connections than Fibre Channel. Connect the LaCie 8big Rack to a computer via the Thunderbolt cable and instantly the volume mounts on your OS. Unlike Fibre Channel, Thunderbolt 2 is truly a plug and play solution. Thunderbolt technology even supports optical cables, which means you could connect a LaCie 8big Rack to a computer located up to 60 meters (197 feet) away.
  • With Thunderbolt 2 technology you are also able to daisy chain up to 6 devices to your computer using just one Thunderbolt port. For example, you could connect 36 LaCie 8big Racks via the six Thunderbolt 2 ports on a single Mac Pro, enabling more than 1.7PB (1728TB) and more than 3000MB/s – in just 36U.
  • Innovative design sports 8 x 3.5” Disk Bays, aluminium front and all-metal enclosure, status LEDs, Power-Saving mode, ID buttons, alarm, easy access and tool-free maintenance.
  • LaCie 8big Rack offers RAID modes 0, 1 (two-disk configuration only), 5, 6, 10 and JBOD.
  • Support for DisplayPort 1.2 means it’s now possible to daisy chain higher-resolution displays such as 4K monitors.
  • System monitoring can alert you to problems or potential problems via desktop notifications or email, so you can address issues before they result in data loss.
  • Ultimate peace of mind – the LaCie 8big Rack comes with a three-year limited warranty.

Comments : 

* Hot swapping will result in data loss in a RAID 0 array.
** These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test when connected to a 13" Macbook Pro® with a 2.8GHz Intel® Core™ i7 processor and 8GB RAM. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as RAID mode, RAID configuration, and disk capacity.
*** To achieve full interface bandwidth, connect the product to a Thunderbolt 2 port on a computer or device.
^ These measurements have been made under normal conditions, one meter/three feet from the front of the product. This value may vary with conditions and product configuration.

When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.
