LaCie, Tigard, Ore., used CES to unveil its new Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2, one of the first storage solutions to feature high-speed Thunderbolt 2 technology. The new device, with its black aluminum enclosure, features speeds up to 1,375 MBps thanks to two internal 500-GB PCIe SSDs configured for RAID 0.
LaCie, which in 2012 was acquired by Seagate, expects its Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 to be used for such high-performance applications as streaming and editing of 4K or 3-D video while in the field. The company claims the device can capture 250 GB of 4K footage in the field and then transfer the content to the post-production team in under 10 minutes.
The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 is slated to be available in the first quarter of 2014.
