LaCie Rugged Drives
The LaCie Rugged family is an all-terrain portable hard disk storage for creative professionals on the go due to its durability, performance and data security features.
It is also the only product in its class to feature hardware RAID 0 and 1, which lets professionals optimize the product for speed or data security according to their workflow.
RAID 0 is a technology that writes data and reads data to/from two disks instantly to make it faster to write or read. This makes the disk faster.
RAID 1 writes the data simultaneously to 2 disk. The 2 disk contains the same copy. This feature halves the capacity of the storage but gives you additional security safeguard that if one of the disk fails you still have another copy. Furthermore, it makes reading faster as well because it retrieves from 2 disks at the same time!
LaCie Rugged RAID features both Thunderbolt™ and USB 3.0 along with two internal hard drives that are pre-configured in hardware RAID 0 for fast performance of up to 240 MB/s. With this speed, users can transfer 64 GB of content in less than five minutes, and even start to edit photos in the field with Adobe® Lightroom®. This is great time savings is key for field-based professionals such as photographers, video graphers or editors who collect and move tons of data onto external storage.
With large 4TB capacity equivalent to sixty 64 GB memory cards allows professionals to carry fewer drives and cards even on long day coverage that requires a lot of photos and video footage.
