From CIOs wanting to keep their businesses ahead of the curve to amateur documentarians crafting a work of love, LaCie Storage provides reliable and expeditious places to store your digital information.
For any of you who have experienced life (and the soulless robots with an internal clock), the understanding that it is full of countless dull moments interspersed with the important changes and tribulations comes naturally. From a documentarian’s perspective, this means the cameras need to be rolling throughout the entirety of the day to capture the real essence of a person’s existence. Ryan Lewis, hip-hop artist and partner of Seattle’s Macklemore, ran into this problem while producing his award-winning documentary of the duo’s world tour.

The LaCie 5big is gargantuan, large, huge, tremendous, and big.
When he needed a massive amount of storage in a portable – if not mobile – package, LaCie Storage was the first and only stop for Ryan Lewis while filming the footage for the documentary. For the duration of the documentary, Lewis used ten 20 TB versions of the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 for a total of 200 TB of space, giving them enough space to hold hundreds of hours of raw footage. Transferring all of that stored data is accomplished over a 10 Gb/s interface, and read and write speeds of 785 MB/s and 695 MB/s respectively help minimize thumb-twiddling induced by loading screens.

The 20 TB versions of the 5big used by Lewis aren’t the only options available from LaCie. For the 5big itself, combinations of multiple distinct drives can bring the maximum total storage space up to an impressive 25 TB, or enough for a dozen hours of video at UHD-1 resolution per storage unit.
For a more high-end solution, you can turn up the big notch to 8. The LaCie 8big has all of the reliability of the 5big, but the raw power is amplified to a maximum 48 TB of storage with blistering fast transfer rates of 20 Gb/s.
No matter what version you select, LaCie Storage is a company you can entrust your life’s work to with the peace of mind to know it will be there no matter what else happens.
