The New Era for Speed
The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series heralds a new era for storage performance. Featuring a preconfigured RAID0 striped set with optional hard disks or SSDs through the 10Gb/s Thunderbolt interface, it delivers astonishing transfer rates. Reach read speeds of up to 480MB/s with the SSD model, and up to 190MB/s with the hard disk model**. Now you can truly get the power of fibre channel rackmount storage—in a portable solution!
You can even daisy chain multiple Little Big Disks together to increase overall transfer rates. The more products you chain together, the higher performance you get. Daisy chain four Little Big Disks with SSDs to maximize Thunderbolt interface capabilities and reach transfer rates of around 800MB/s (up to 782MB/s with the hard disk version).
All in all, the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series 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.
Next Generation Interface
Thunderbolt technology is the most flexible interface ever created. It permits daisy chaining, so you only need a single cable (sold separately from apple.com) to connect multiple Thunderbolt peripherals to your computer. You can even connect up to six compatible devices together. Each Thunderbolt cable provides two channels with 10Gb/s of bandwidth, one dedicated for data and the other for video. Thunderbolt is even mini-DisplayPort compatible. This means you can connect, for example, your high-end LaCie 324i display and your Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series to your Mac via a single Thunderbolt cable. What’s more, data and video signals can be pushed and pulled simultaneously, so you can read and write data at the same time without reducing performance.
The Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series weighs just 1.4 lbs., making it a portable powerhouse. It fits in the palm of your hand, features its own cooling system, and can be connected to displays and laptops. Opt for the hard disk version and get up to 2TB*** storage capacity per unit (up to 240GB with SSD version). While presenting their work to a client, photographers can browse smoothly through photos in their digital libraries while experiencing zero lag time. Away from the studio, videographers can dramatically reduce the time to publish a project. They simply download their footage directly from a compatible camera to the Little Big Disk to start the editing process on the field. The SSD version will be popular with post-production teams thanks to its support for multiple uncompressed video streams and multichannel audio.
Aluminum Reliability and Security
The Little Big Disk’s advanced dual cooling system ensures safe operation and long-term reliability by keeping the internal components cool. Its solid-aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently. It also features a high-performance fan for superior pressure and airflow. For energy conservation, its front power button even lets you turn off the product without breaking a daisy chain.
Developed by Intel® and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple®, Thunderbolt technology transforms the foundation of peripheral connectivity. By working closely with Intel and Apple to forge this exciting new era of storage, LaCie continues its rich history of leading the industry with breakthrough products that empower professionals and consumers alike. This next generation Little Big Disk kicks off LaCie's series of high-end Thunderbolt solutions.
** These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test with a 1TB (HDDs) or 240GB (SSDs) Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series when connected to a 17" MacBook Pro 2.2Ghz Quad Core and 4GB RAM with 32k block size.
