5TB 5-disk RAID unit ships

LaCie today unveiled its 5TB S2S 5-disk RAID storage system designed for digital content creation applications. The solution utilizes an eSata 3Gbps interface as well as direct eSATA-to-eSATA connectivity, and is capable of reaching burst transfer rates of more than 200MB/sec. Advanced users can connect up to four S2S units together on an included eSATA PCI-X/Express Card to achieve 20TB of RAID storage with burst speeds of more than 600MB/sec. Disks are hot-swappable for instant expandability, according to LaCie, and the solution is hot-pluggable to negate the need for powering down the computer. FUsers can customize email alerts in the event of a disk failure, and can create unique RAID sets to suit different applications. The storage system comes pre-configured in Fast mode (hardware RAID 0), striping disks together for maximum throughput. Other supported RAID modes include RAID 1, RAID 0+1, hardware concatenation, and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks). The 5TB system ships with a 4-port PCI-Express ($4,800) or PCI-X ($3,700) card.
