Product Highlights
  • 20TB Drive Capacity
  • 2 x Thunderbolt Ports for Daisy Chaining
  • 5 x Hot Swappable Hard Disks

  • 64MB Cache
  • 7200rpm Rotational Speed
  • Daisy Chain Up to 6 Thunderbolt Devices

The 20TB 5big Thunderbolt 5-Bay Hard Drive RAID from LaCie is a versatile hard drive array capable of daisy chaining up to six Thunderbolt-compatible devices in low power mode. With 10Gb/s max uplink and downlink speeds you can transfer your data quickly and efficiently. Everything within this enclosure is kept cool with a heatsinked aluminum casing as well as a high-performance fan.

Take advantage of a variety of RAID modes including the preconfigured RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD configuration. The preconfigured RAID 0 mode provides zero redundancy with improved performance. In this configuration a single failure destroys the entire array. RAID 1 provides mirroring without parity or striping. Data is written identically to two drives, thereby producing a "mirrored set" ensuring data backup and security. With a JBOD, or just a bunch of disks, configuration you benefit from being able to utilize a variety of disks.

Enhanced Speed
Get 785MB/s thanks to five 7200 rpm/64MB cache hard disks preconfigured in RAID 0. With these speeds, you have all you need for any post-production work. Handle multiple 2K uncompressed 10-bit streams.
RAID Flexibility for Speed and Security
With five disks, the LaCie 5big offers various RAID configurations to meet your precise needs. With a variety of RAID configurations you can create a fast volume with three disks in RAID 0, and a safe volume with two disks in RAID 1. Hot-swappable disks allow you to slide a new disk into the safe volume without switching off the device. Use the fast volume or use with Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere, or Aperture, and the safe volume to back up your projects with no downtime or data loss. The LaCie 5big can also be used as a JBOD array.

LaCie also offers the RAID Monitor software for this product. It alerts you when a disk needs maintenance, identifies which disk has failed, and helps you to resolve the issue.
Daisy Chain to Multiply Options
With dual Thunderbolt ports on the LaCie 5big, you can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt peripherals together. Increase the total amount of storage you can make available to your Mac. Thunderbolt technology is also mini-DisplayPort compatible.
Dual Cooling System
The cooling system consists of three key components: an innovative heat-dissipating aluminum casing, a Noctua cooling fan, and jumbo exhausts. For the enclosure, its solid-aluminum heat sink design diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently than plastic casings. The quiet Noctua NF-P12 fan pulls heat away from the internal components while producing exceptionally little noise. It also controls its speed according to temperature, which means that it works more efficiently while prolonging its lifespan. The LaCie 5big also has oversized air holes to facilitate airflow from the fan and reduce noise.
Increased Convenience
The LaCie 5big is designed to integrate seamlessly into professional environments. With its small footprint and space-saving design, you can stand it alone or stack multiple LaCie 5bigs.

        Comments about LaCie 20TB 5big Thunderbolt Series 5-Bay RAID:

        I have been doing amateur video for theater groups. With 2 hour+ run time, they can gobble up quit a lot of HD space.

        This unit is working beautifully. At first I was not sure of "5" drives, but one is backing up my iMAC HD and the other four operate as RAID pairs. When recording anything live, keeping backups is critical. Its speed is excellent!

        I am hoping I am just as happy six months from now.

          I was looking to find a back up solution with room to grow. This does the trick. Ready to go pretty much right out of the box....and fast enough to handle all my audio/video needs.....quiet too!

            Comments about LaCie 20TB 5big Thunderbolt Series 5-Bay RAID:

            I would have given this 5 stars but I was really disappointed when trying to set it up. When setting this up I found that with the 5 drives using RAID10 you could only mirror 3-5 and 2-4. Disk 1 was not mirrored and that could possibly be a problem later. Could have set this up as Striped Raid but not sure if that would work for redundancy. Also was told by Lacie that we could hook two Thunderbolt cables at same time from two machines, you cannot do that. We found that the 2 thunderbolt ports were for daisy chaining. We cannot put on the network, so that is not an option for us.

            Over all it is a really nice storage box.
