Designed for photo, video, and audio production, graphic design, backup, and archiving, the 8TB 2big 2-Bay USB 3.1 Type-C RAID Array from LaCie has dual 3.5" SATA drive bays, each of which is equipped with a 4TB enterprise-class hard drive, for a total storage capacity of 8TB. Compatible with both Windows and Mac, it supports hardware-controlled RAID 0, which provides improved performance, and RAID 1, which provides 1:1 data redundancy. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available. This 2big comes preformatted as HFS+ for Mac, configured as RAID 0, and connects to your host system using its 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C interface, which is also known as USB 3.1 or USB 3.2 Gen 2 with transfer speeds up to 440 MB/s. This RAID array may also be used with Thunderbolt 3 hosts and is cooled using its aluminum enclosure with improved heat dissipation, as well as a thermoregulated Noctua cooling fan. Included is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C cable, an external power supply, and a limited 5-year warranty with data recovery services.
