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. It now features SATA III SSDs, which deliver 35% more speed than the previous generation. Achieve up to 635MB/s (SATA III SSD) and 190MB/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 800MB/s (up to 782MB/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.

RAID for Speed or Security

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.

Next Generation Interface

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 10Gb/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.

Featherweight Powerhouse

The LaCie Little Big Disk 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 2TB of storage capacity per unit (up to 1TB 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 LaCie 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 is enclosed in LaCie's classic d2 casing, designed by Neil Poulton. The resilient aluminum armor protects the data inside whether the Little Big Disk is in the field or in transit. Not only is it constructed of sturdy aluminum, but its unique heat sink design provides 60% more surface area, which draws heat away from the internal components, keeping it cool and safe at all times. What's more, its front power button allows you to turn off the Little Big Disk without breaking a daisy chain, always with energy conservation in mind.
