The LaCie 2Big Thunderbolt 2 16TB is a 2-Bay RAID storage solution. Ideal for working with 2k and 4k video footage or storing all of your digital media files.

LaCie 2Big Interface

The LaCie 2Big 16TB has Dual Thunderbolt 2 and a single USB 3.0 connection.

Transfer Speed

Thunderbolt 2 coupled with dual 7200 RPM disks and a hardware RAID controller provides an impressive sustained speed of up to 440MB/s.

With this kind of speed, videographers can edit multiple 2K uncompressed 10-bit streams or play back compressed 4K video.

Digital photographers can browse a massive RAW photo library with zero lag. And, thanks to support for DisplayPort 1.2, it’s now possible to daisy chain higher-resolution displays such as 4K monitors.

Perfomance Benchmarks

16TB RAID 0 440 | 320 (Read/Write MB/s)
16TB RAID 1 220 | 200 (Read/Write MB/s)

Daisy Chain with Thunderbolt

With Thunderbolt 2 you can daisy chain up to six devices. You could daisy chain up to 5 hard drives and put a 4K display at the end of the chain.

Supported RAID Levels

The LaCie 2Big 16TB supports RAID 0, RAID 1 and JBOD. With the buttons on the rear it’s easy to configure the RAID but impossible to change it accidentally.

RAID 0 – Choose RAID 0 (FAST) to get the full 16TB capacity and also the fastest read/write speed. This is idea for video editing.

RAID 1 – Select RAID 1 (SAFE) to have two mirrored copies of 8TB. Ideal for secure backup.

JBOD – Both 8TB drives will mount separately on the desktop so you can use the drives independently.

Enterprise Class Drives Inside

The 16TB version of the LaCie 2Big features Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 hard disks that provide superb accessibility, reliability, and robust performance. Designed to operate 24×7 on 16-bay racks, these HDDs feature 2 million hours MTBF (mean time between failure) for extraordinary availability.

This enterprise-class drive features 256MB cache, 7200RPM, and rack environment optimization, offering the ideal solution for handling aggressive workloads.

LaCie Software Suite

  • Intego Backup Manager Pro for Mac
  • Genie Backup Manager Pro for PC
  • LaCie Private-Public (protect data with AES 256-bit encryption)
  • LaCie Desktop Manager (provides system monitoring and email alerts for temperature or RAID events)
