LaCie announce latest Thunderbolt storage solutions

/ 5 years ago

The new 2Big Thunderbolt series features both Thunderbolt and eSATA storage solutions. They are both to be unveiled at CES 2012, with the headliner being the Thunderbolt device delivery speeds of up to 311MB/s. They support capacities of up to 8TB, support RAID and daisy chaining and can support multiple playback streams of HD content through a single Thunderbolt port. The eSATA 2Big can support up 12 eSATA drives (6x Dock, 2x eSATA links per Hub) via a single connection.

“LaCie is proud to offer the widest range of storage solutions featuring Thunderbolt technology,” said Erwan Girard, Professional Business Unit Manager, LaCie. “These products are some of the fastest and most flexible storage solutions on the market. They will dramatically accelerate the workflow of even the most demanding digital users.”

No word on the pricing just yet, but knowing LaCie (and the current prices of hard drives) it will not be at all cheap.
