4 BIG QUADRA 12TB 4 BAY 4 I/F 7 RAID MODES The LaCie 4big Quadra is the most complete 4-bay RAID solution for professionals who demand exceptional performance from a storage device. Offering amazing bandwidth speeds through eSATA 3Gbits and FireWire 800, it also features FireWire 400 and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports for maximum compatibility with any Mac or PC. Featuring seven RAID modes to customize performance and data protection levels, the 4big Quadra fits most speed-demanding applications and backup needs for today's workstations and small servers. Taking advantage of a native RAID controller that preserves computer resources, the 4big Quadra offers superior support for the most demanding applications. Alternative RAID modes - such as RAID 5 - can be configured in seconds on startup to manage speed, security, and available capacity. With the capacity to store hours of A/V streams, the 4big Quadra has been developed to suit the demands of digital content creators, such as editors who work with Apple Final Cut Pro. When used in RAID 0 or RAID 5, the 4big Quadra supports multiple audio, DV, SD, and HD streams, and up to one stream of uncompressed 10-bit NTSC video in playback. Greater performance can even be achieved when connecting several units together to a multilane eSATA four-port host adapter, in order to support multi-stream uncompressed 10-bit 1080i HD post-production. Configured in secured RAID mode, the 4big Quadra can archive and protect hundreds of thousand of raw photos with comfortable speed for imaging experts, such as Apple Aperture and Adobe Creative Suite specialists. This makes it a fantastic tool to produce and manage professional projects and artwork. The LaCie Shortcut Button on the front of the 4big makes it even easier to open or back up your favorite libraries with a push of a button.
