LaCie, the premium brand of Seagate Technology, announced the availability of the fastest dual-disk RAID solution on the market — the LaCie 2big. Now with Thunderbolt 2 technology, the LaCie 2big delivers speeds of up to 420MB/s, which means zero lag for photographers and action–camera gurus who use Lightroom or Final Cut Pro. Combined with up to 12TB of capacity, hardware RAID and a cutting–edge industrial design, this makes the LaCie 2big a powerhouse for productivity.
A common annoyance for creative professionals is lag caused by full or slow storage. The LaCie 2big delivers enough bandwidth and capacity to ensure professionals can store large photo and video libraries while editing or instantly applying filters to photos. They can then export entire photo libraries in half the time of single hard–disk solutions. Furthermore, GoPro® users working with HD video files will experience a drastic reduction in render times, allowing them to optimize workflow and publish videos faster.
Today LaCie, the premium brand from Seagate Technology, announced its latest Rugged hard drive that features faster speeds, a tougher design, and an integrated interface cable.

Plus, the integrated Thunderbolt cable stows neatly when not in use, to ensure that it will never get lost or left behind.
"My assignments take me to the top surf spots all over the world," said Surfer Magazine staff photographer Zak Noyle. "So it's imperative that my equipment is ready for any challenge. The LaCie Rugged's speed allows me to deliver projects quickly, and its resilience to water, sand and drops make me confident that my photos are protected. From the beaches of Oahu to Tahiti, the LaCie Rugged has never let me down."

"A seemingly small breach like a single unsecured drive that's lost or stolen from a medical office can translate to tens of thousands of private confidential records becoming anything but private and confidential."
WD, a Western Digital company, and world leader in storage solutions, will be demonstrating the first PCI Express hard drives at Computex Taipei, June 3-4, 2014. Enabled with key technology partners, WD's prototype introduces the new SATA Express interface, a form of PCI Express technology, which is offered on recently launched Intel series-9 chipset motherboard platforms. The SATA Express interface provides a roadmap for faster speeds, lower power consumption and increased flexibility for future OEM designs.
The road to the world's first demonstration of SATA Express has been in development for almost 3 years. In 2011, SATA-IO, the group responsible for charting the future of SATA, announced that it was developing a new specification that would fundamentally change the core technology behind SATA by melding it with the more advanced PCI Express computer interface. In 2013, the SATA Express specification was announced; and just one year later, WD and selected partners have realized a prototype of what is expected to be the next generation of storage technology.
By moving to PCI Express, the industry marries the world's most popular storage bus with the world's most popular computer bus. This union provides a solid growth path to innovate new capability, while preserving the ability to plug legacy SATA drives into new SATA Express based computers. In another innovation, SATA Express allows cable connections with lower costs, by removing the PCI Express Sync line via SRIS (Separate RefClock with Independent SSC), which lowers the overall cable cost.
