LaCie 8big Rack Thunderbolt 2 Review

LaCie has brought their design, performance, and Mac compatibility to another niche; rackmount direct attached storage. Their debut rack DAS solution, the 8big Rack, is also the fastest and highest-capacity Thunderbolt 2-compatible device on the market. As with almost all of their products, 8big Rack's Thunderbolt 2 interface provides easy plug and play connectivity for Mac users. They have seen that design and media professionals tend to use Apple products, so they made it as easy as possible for this customer-base to enhance their storage capabilities, while squeezing the fastest possible transfer speeds out of their HDDs. Like most of their products, LaCie designed this thing to look great next to any modern all-Mac setup. Thanks to Neil Poulton, their product designer, the 8big Rack has a sleek aluminum face and minimalistic design while providing up to 48TB of storage (with up to eight Seagate 6TB 7200RPM HDDs), 1330MB/s transfers (in a 4K video editing environment), and a slew of user-friendly features, all in a 1U form factor.

While EMC is providing swing gear and services at no cost to customers who need it while migrating to XtremIO 3.0, Pure is also getting in on the swing gear game.
