The LaCie 12big is the largest solution in their range offering unparalleled performance for the cost. It’s really tall (well they needed to fit 12 drives in it!) but has a relatively small footprint. Built with 4/5 and even 6K media in mind it really packs a punch.
The great thing about the 12big is that it has both Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C connections (back compatible with USB 3.0) so it can be hooked up to a wide variety of machines which makes it a hugely popular choice amongst our clients.
Spreading the workload across 12 drives, the LaCie 12big gives you transfer speeds of up to 2600 MB/s read and 1700 MB/s write when set to RAID 0 but you also have the option to build in some redundancy by choosing RAID 5 or 6 too which still leaves you with some impressive rates.

12 drives just a little too much? Check out the smaller sibling the LaCie 6big here.
Need to expand? No Problem!
Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain up to six devices to a computer via a single cable. So you could connect up to six LaCie 12big devices together, bringing a jaw-dropping 720TB to your computer.
Macs with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 ports can experience high-end transfer rates with LaCie Thunderbolt 3 professional solutions. Apple’s Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter (sold separately) provides easy connection between LaCie Thunderbolt 3 solutions and Macs with earlier generations of Thunderbolt.*
