G-Technology Shuttle XL External HDD Overview

Built to support for video workflows on location and in the studio that require large capacities, high-powered performance, and multiple RAID configurations for multi-stream 4K, 8K, and VR workflows, the G-SPEED Shuttle XL 60TB 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from G-Technology provides up to 60TB of enterprise-class storage that is made up of six 10TB 7200 rpm 3.5" hard drives and is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports. While one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports is used to interface with your host system at speeds of up to 1500 MB/s, the other can be used to daisy chain up to five additional devices to your G-SPEED.

In addition to the six 3.5" drive bays, this array also has two Evolution (ev) Series drive bays that support ev Series drive modules. If there is data that needs to be copied off the array's 3.5" drives, it can be copied to the ev Series modules, which may then be removed from the array and transported or mailed with more ease than a 3.5" drive. ev Series modules can also be used to adapt memory cards, such as the RED MINI-MAG, so that content may be transferred to and from the array.

The six drive bays of the G-SPEED come pre-configured as hardware-controlled RAID 5, which provides a good balance of performance and data redundancy. Also supported is RAID 0, 1, 6, and 10. Please bear in mind that the ev Series drive bays may only be configured as RAID 0, 1, and JBOD.

The G-SPEED Shuttle XL 60TB 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array comes formatted for macOS 10.12+. After a simple reformat, it may also be used with Windows 10 and 7. Also included is a 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 cable, a power cord, and six removable disk modules, and two ev Series bay adapters. Protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

question

I'd like to purchase the TB3 version to connect with my new TB3 PC laptop, but I'd also like to connect to my TB2 PC tower. Is TB3 backwards compatible with TB2 when using a PC via adapter? I've read the apple adapter is with apple products, but no info out there on PC products.
Asked by: Bill K.
Yes, Thunderbolt 3 is backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 2. It will simply operate at the Thunderbolt 2 speeds of the computer.

Has anyone used the TB3 version of this on a PCHP Z840 TB2. Using a TB3 to TB2 cable. I know it won't get TB3 speeds but will it be stable and get TB2 speeds?
Asked by: Evan
B&H # GT0G05849 will work with Apple Thunderbolt 3 Male to Thunderbolt 2 Female Adapter B&H # APMMEL2AMA. This will allow the unit to work with a Thunderbolt 2 computer with Thunderbolt 2 speeds.

How is the speed in RAID 6?

How is the speed in RAID 6?
Asked by: Felix
Unfortunately, we can't test different RAID settings. RAID 0 will be the idea solution for the best performance. RAID 5 will be faster than RAID 6. Depending on the RAID setting, port, HDD and workflow, will determine the overall speed this enclosure can perform.

question

I'm relatively new to all this, so forgive my ignorance... but is there an option to use SSD Drives instead? Is it even possible to RAID SSD Drives? Is there a reason not to (besides price)? Thanks.
Asked by: Jay J.
Yes SSD drives work and they will raid just like any other hard drive. You have to buy ssd sleds so that it fits in the 3.5 trays.

question

Is the TB3 G-Speed Shuttle compatible with a 2013 MacPro TB2? Looking to upgrade and would rather purchase TB3 for future use.
Asked by: rafael
I don't have a Mac. It takes a TB3 so it would need to be compatible with that.

question

Why is the Xcellon DRD-401 Four-Bay System included with this? It does not offer thunderbolt connection making it somewhat obsolete right? What would be an ideal use for the extra enclosure?
Asked by: Richard E.
I can't think of a good answer for you. It's quite useless, unless you happen to have 2 drives sitting around and would like a slower 2disk RAID; or to salvage a broken 2disk RAID system. Anyway, I sold mine at the shop down the street for 20$.
