The 6TB G-RAID Studio Storage System with Thunderbolt 2 from G-Technology is designed for more advanced applications, like storing or saving 2K and 4K compressed video, as well as more basic storage. The G-RAID Studio has two removable enterprise drives that can be configured with multiple RAID options that also supports Thunderbolt 2.

The G-RAID Studio comes with two enterprise drives running at 7200RPM preconfigured in RAID 0 for transfer rates up to 330 MB/s which makes this suitable for many purposes such as backing up family photos and video, professional digital content use and more. Also included are all necessary accessories to get the G-RAID Studio running, such as power cable and Thunderbolt 2 cable.

Dual Thunderbolt 2 Ports
Thunderbolt 2 offers a single 20Gb/s bi-directional channel that allows you to stream and write 4K video at the same time. Also daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt devices at the same time
Hardware RAID Options
Preconfigured in RAID 0 but also supports RAID 1 or JBOD. RAID 0 shares data between two drives giving you the best performance. RAID 1 stores identical data onto both drives to preserve data if one drive fails but reduces the total storage capacity and speed by half. Lastly JBOD creates one logical drive so instead of seeing two drive letters you will see one.

    Comments about G-Technology 6TB G-RAID Studio External Storage System with Thunderbolt 2:

    I purchased and use this device in my 4K Video Production Workflow. This product does a great job during the video editing but the claim of not dropping any frames is not exactly accurate. So yes, frames are dropped during playback in FinalCut X during the editing process. You can avoid dropping frames by stoping the background render option if you are using this same drive to host your project. If nothing is being rendered then no frames are dropped. One other note, the up to 360MB/s spec - I have not been able to reach those speeds with my new Mac Pro 6 Core purchased in Feb 2014. The unit is louder than what I like, so rather than sitting it on my desk, I moved it to the floor. This required a longer Thunderbolt cable. All in all, I am happy with the performance of the unit now that I have a better understanding as to how to use it and how it fits into my video editing workflow. Also the fact that it is not an expensive solution makes it that much more attractive.
