IBC 2014: LaCie to showcase Thunderbolt 2 d2

Do you want up to 6TB of the fastest SSD storage on the planet? Of course you do. LaCie’s Thunderbolt d2 offers an SSD expansion that takes it to a ridiculous 1150 Mbps. 

Let’s review: first, the soundtrack on that video would have been huge in 2002. Second, the obvious killer feature here is that SSD upgrade, which quintuples your speeds and adds 128GB of PCIe SSD storage to your d2. This will be available in October, with the US price rag predicted to be $299 (we’ll report on UK prices as soon as we have them.)

In the meantime, you’ve got a Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 unit with a 7200 RPM hard disk of up to 6TB, all wrapped in an aluminium body that’s designed to be near-silent and offer fan-free cooling – the body draws heat away from the hard disk and allows it to dissipate through the base. The base itself is cushioned to minimise vibration, and there are  also vibration-absorbing disk mounts built in.

As well as being compatible with Time Machine for easy backup, the Thunderbolt 2 d2 ships bundled with LaCie’s own backup software, so you really have no excuse not to double down on key files. It also includes LaCie’s Public-Private software, which allows you to protect storage volumes using AES 256-bit encryption.
