LaCie gain a control of the NAB limelight this year with a massive 12-bay RAID . The 12big Thunderbolt 3 features enterprise-class drives and a RAID 5/6 controller capable of serving up to 96 terabytes of data at speeds reaching 2,600 megabytes per second. All this power is squeezed into a tower style setup footprint the company claims takes up less space than a typical laptop.

Offering a sense of scale, LaCie says the 12big can store 100 hours of 4K ProRes 444 XQ footage in a RAID 5 arrangement. And thanks to the unparalleled bandwidth offered by Thunderbolt 3, users are able to edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 444 XQ and uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video.

the 12big also features two Thunderbolt 3 ports and one USB 3.1 port with support for daisy chaining multiple 4K displays and powering external hardware.

“LaCie is committed to helping video professionals master ever-increasing data demands by ensuring their irreplaceable data is secure, available on demand and always driving value,” said Tim Bucher, Senior Vice President of Seagate and LaCie Branded Solutions, “We purpose-built the LaCie 12big to have the speed, capacity and reliability to efficiently download and edit even the most demanding content—so our customers can focus on making their creative vision a reality.”

On the software side, LaCie includes its redesigned RAID Manager to help users set up disks, manage RAID settings and monitor storage assets. The application includes setup wizards for creating and managing custom volumes, while manual controls let users customize CPU settings, auto rebuild options and access diagnostics tools.

The LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3 is expected to ship this summer in 48TB, 72TB and 96TB configurations. Pricing has not yet been announced.
