LaCie Ships World’s Fastest Portable External Storage Solution

LaCie, the premium brand from Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX), announced today the availability of the fastest portable external storage solution ever – the new LaCie Little Big Disk, featuring Thunderbolt 2. It delivers speeds up to 1,375 MB/s* and fits in a laptop bag. With these advances, professionals finally have a truly portable solution for editing 4K video in the field.

STORAGE FOR THE 4K ERA

To achieve the full potential of Thunderbolt 2** speeds, LaCie engineered the Little Big Disk with some of the best-performing solid state drives on the market – a pair of 500 GB PCIe Gen 2 SSDs. It’s possible to push the boundaries of the technology even further by daisy chaining two LaCie Little Big Disks to achieve speeds faster than the maximum Thunderbolt 2 transfer rate. By connecting them in parallel to Apple®’s powerful new Mac Pro®, they can deliver speeds up to 2,600 MB/s.

In addition to its post-production benefits, the LaCie Little Big Disk can transfer dailies ten times faster than any mobile USB 3.0 hard drive. For example, it’s possible to transfer 300 GB of 4K footage in less than three minutes, saving hours a day.

DAISY CHAIN FLEXIBILITY

Thanks to its two Thunderbolt 2 ports, the LaCie Little Big Disk can be daisy chained with other devices. Professionals can daisy chain up to five LaCie Little Big Disks plus a 4K display, and connect them to a computer via a single cable. Now it’s possible to create a plug-and-play 4K video editing environment that delivers scalable capacity, incredible speed and convenience to workflows.

RE-ENGINEERED FOR WHISPER-QUIET DUAL COOLING

Including high-performance SSDs and interface meant LaCie had to optimize the Little Big Disk’s interior design to improve cooling efficiency, while simultaneously reducing noise. LaCie added two heat-dissipating aluminum plates in addition to a larger, thermoregulated fan. This means that the fan only turns on when necessary, and when it does, it produces nearly zero noise. As a result, the LaCie Little Big Disk delivers industry-leading performance without disrupting the creative workflow.
