Peripheral and storage vendor LaCie has announced its 2Big USB 3.0 dual-drive RAID system, which the company claims is the first of its kind on the market. The 2Big USB 3.0 offers a dual disk configuration supporting up to 4 TB of storage and RAID 0 and RAID 1 support—and, thanks to a USB 3.0 bridge controller from Symwave—can push up to 275 MB/s, which is the kind of number that makes high-definition video editors get a gleam in their eye.
“Our customers have long awaited a robust, super fast interface to enable a better workflow. Symwave’s industry-leading dual SATA bridge controller enabled us to address this demand, and to achieve the highest speed ever obtained with a dual-disk solution,” said LaCie marketing director Minh Lê, in a statement. “LaCie intends to lead the market transition to USB 3.0 technology and will launch a full range of products in the coming months.”
LaCie plans to ship the 2Big USB 3.0 in early 2010, and will have the drive on show at CES in January. No specific ship date, capacity options, or pricing information has been announced.
