Posted at 16 August 2007 16:38 CEST by geno888
  • Massive 5TB RAID in a single, powerful solution
  • 10-bit uncompressed HD playback support
  • Scalable to up to 20TB for HD multi-stream support

LaCie announced the 5TB Biggest S2S 5-disk RAID designed for digital content creation applications. Thanks to its eSATA 3Gbit/s interface and direct eSATA-to-SATA connection, a single LaCie Biggest S2S is capable of reaching burst transfer rates of over 200MB/s*. For advanced professionals, up to four S2S units can be connected on the included eSATA PCI-X/Express Card to achieve a massive 20TB solution with a burst speed of over 600MB/s.

Disks are hot-swappable for instant expandability and the solution is hot-pluggable – no need to power down the computer. Advanced features include the ability to customize email alerts in the event of disk failure and to create unique RAID sets to fit different needs.

LaCie Biggest S2S comes pre-configured in Fast mode (hardware RAID 0), in which the disks are striped together for ultimate speed instantly. The Biggest S2S can be easily configured to Safe (hardware RAID 1); Safe + Fast, (hardware RAID 0+1); Big (hardware concatenation); or JBOD.

LaCie Biggest S2S comes with a 4-port PCI card for immediate use. Users can select the LaCie SATA II 3Gbits/s PCI-Express Card 4E or LaCie SATA II 3Gbits/s PCI-X Card 4E with four ports and a native x8 host bus interface. Thanks to port multiplication, all five disks are connected to a single port on the LaCie SATA II 3Gbits/s PCI-Express Card 4E.

The LaCie Biggest S2S 5TB is available late-August at the suggested retail prices of $3,699 (about €2,740) (with PCI-X Card) and $3,799 (about €2,815) (with PCI-E Card).
