LaCie’s new 2big Triple is a full-featured, three-interface, two-disk RAID device.
Aimed at small and home office professionals who need performance and security, especially for digital editing and graphic design, the 2big Triple features Firewire 800, Firewire 400 and hi-Speed USB 2.0 interfaces.
Available in one and two terabyte versions, the 2big Triple was created for LaCie by product designer Neil Poulton. It features a natural, cooling heat-sink metal design with a thermoregulated progressive smart fan that ensures long-lasting reliability and quiet operation. The device can be rackmounted, placed horizontally, or stood vertically to conform to different office environments.
With its 800Mbps Firewire 800 interface, the 2big Triple built-in RAID hardware controller preserves a computer’s system resources, says LaCie, adding the device is suited for demanding projects, such as audio/video playback.
The 2big Triple is driver-free and is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or later, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, XP and Vista. It ships with EMC Retrospect Express for backup management and data restoration.
