ntroducing the LaCie 8big Rack. It features Thunderbolt 2 speeds and capacities of up to 48TB in a 1U rackmount size — that’s twice the density of the typical rack storage density. Daisy chain as many as 36 LaCie 8big Racks to a single Mac Pro® to deliver 1728TB and up to 3000MB/s — in a mere 36U. It’s also dramatically easier to set up than Fibre Channel DAS solutions, while featuring hardware RAID 5/6 and fully redundant disks, fans, and PSU.
Thunderbolt technology redefined external storage with its speed and versatility for bandwidth-intensive applications. Thunderbolt 2 builds on those advances by doubling the speed potential to 20Gb/s and enabling simultaneous RAW 4K video editing and display. And thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2, it’s now possible to daisy chain higher-resolution displays such as 4K monitors.

LaCie was once two separate companies. The names of the companies are Electronique d2 and LaCie. Electronique d2 was originally in Paris, France while LaCie was originally in Portland, Oregon, USA. LaCie was purchased by Plus Development in 1990. This Plus Development was a subsidiary of Quantum.
