G-Technology Announces New “Shuttle” Storage Solutions
Today G-Technology, a Western Digital Corporation (WDC) company, announced two new products in its G-SPEED Shuttle family. These new 4-bay storage solutions are built for users that need high capacity, portability, and high performance. The solutions run up to 48TB and up to 1GB/s transfer speeds.
With the increase in quality of video (from 1080p to 4K and now even 8K), creative professionals are finding their files to be massive. They need to offload these files in order to keep working. With the new Shuttle solutions, users will have more than enough capacity with a range between 16TB to 48TB. The solutions leverage Thunderbolt 3 technology. G-Technology claims that a professional can transfer one hour of 4K footage at 30 frames per second (fps) in just minutes at up to 1,000MB/s.
G-SPEED features include:
- G-SPEED Shuttle with Thunderbolt 3: Able to handle demanding multi-stream workflows of 4K and beyond, both on location and in the studio, the G-SPEED Shuttle solution with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports offers content creators up to 48TB and hardware RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 in a 4-bay transportable design. Equipped with transfer rates up to 1000MB/s and removable 7200RPM.
- G-SPEED Shuttle with ev Series Bay Adapters: While similar in features with the G-SPEED Shuttle with Thunderbolt 3, this model’s integrated ev Series bay adapters improve workflow options and productivity by enabling cross-functionality with all ev Series drives and readers. Users can experience enhanced reliability coupled with fast transfer rates up to 500MB/s and up to 24TB.
