12big Rack Fibre, 12TB, 2x 4Gb/s Fiber, SAS/SATA II, Black/Orange
It’s a great addition to any Storage Area Network (SAN), and thanks to its user-friendly, browser-based interface, management is easy and downtime is reduced. It features up to four 4Gb/s fibre channel connections, and when combined with active/active dual RAID controllers, it can support six simultaneous 4:2:2 uncompressed video streams in RAID 5.
In addition to the 12 hot-swappable disks and individually tested enclosures, the LaCie 12big Rack Fibre’s dual RAID controller option, two power supplies, and redundant cooling units are hot-swappable, providing the ultimate in redundancy and security. With the 12big Rack Fibre, there is no single point of failure and a backup battery helps to ensure cached data within the RAID controllers can even survive a power failure. Accessing your data from Mac, Windows, or Linux-based workstations can also be done through multiple fiber channel connections and multipathing drivers.
With StorView software, it’s simple to configure and administer the LaCie 12big Rack Fibre. Its web-based interface helps automate control of cache, arrays, and devices. StorView also offers access to the RAID Advanced Power Management Program, which administrators can use to minimize the 12big’s operational costs, and Snapshot software helps assist in data recovery.
To prevent data corruption over time, the 12big Rack Fibre will periodically scan disks to ensure the data will be accessible when requested. The 12big will also recalculate parity and locate it elsewhere on the drive when it detects a bad block on a specific drive. For the ultimate security and peace of mind, LaCie includes the LaCie Advance Care Option, for maximum service and support.
