LaCie Biggest S2S

LaCie today unveiled the ($2000-$3500), a five-bay RAID tower capable of reaching interface speeds of 3Gb/s with next generation serial ATA (SATA) technology. With sustained transfer rates of 187MB/s, this compact tower is intended for real-time storage of uncompressed video files. Biggest S2S is the second new RAID solution from LaCie in less than a year, offering a combination of either 1.25TB or 2.5TB capacity, RAID security and fast throughput at a "fraction of the cost for traditional RAID systems." Biggest S2S can be easily configured to Fast (RAID 0) in which disks are striped together for best performance without redundancy; Safe (RAID 1) in which all data is mirrored on duplicate disks; Safe + Fast, (RAID 0+1); Big in which drives are strung together or oncatenated and treated as one large volume; or JBOD in which each physical disk is mapped to its logical volume.

This all-in-one storage solution comes bundled with the LaCie SATA II 3Gb/s PCI-X Card 4E. Users simply plug the Biggest S2S into this SATA II 3Gb/s host to achieve sustained transfer rates of up to 187MB/s. "Designed with video editors and IT administrators in mind, Biggest S2S satisfies the need for high-volume security and speed at a comparatively cost-effective price."
