The LaCie 4big Quadra is the most complete 4-bay RAID solution for small servers, creative pro workstations, or offices that need large storage/backup capacity, superior speed, and advanced security. Offering capacities up to 16TB (6000GB!), the 4big features seven RAID modes, including RAID 0 and RAID 5—which is highlighted by a versatile hot-swappable feature—to customize its performance and data protection level.

With burst transfer rates reaching up to 200-230MB/s* through eSATA 3Gbits, the 4big fits perfectly with most applications that demand high speed, such as photo, pre-press, AV projects, and even HD post-production. Compatible with Time Machine™, it also comes with Genie Backup Manager Pro™ and Intego Backup Manager Pro™, for customizable backup and computer recovery.

Comments :  *Maximum interface transfer rate = theoretical bus bandwidth, whereas burst transfer rate = maximum drive speed. Performance depends on the RAID mode selected and burst transfer rates vary from one computer to another and may vary slightly from one drive to another. Average speed is usually lower depending on host configuration.
**1TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less). Capacity varies depending upon RAID mode.
***Hot-swapping is not supported by RAID 0 and concatenation modes.
****The LaCie Shortcut Button feature is available via FireWire and USB but not eSATA.
