Seagate's LaCie external storage drives unit has come up with a video editing workstation user's wet dream: 96TB capacity and 2.6GB/sec throughput from a Thunderbolt 3-accessed desktop tower.

The 12big Thunderbolt product features:

12 drives bays and 8TB, 7200rpm drive support
RAID 5 and 6 support from RAID hardware controller
Thunderbolt 3 IO running at 40Gbit/s
2,600MB/sec bandwidth (2,400MB/sec with RAID 5)
256MB cache
Four thermo-regulated fans
Included USB-C to USB-A cable
Front drive status LEDs for drive health and RAID build status

The Seagate drives are built for 24/7 operation; 8,760 hours a year, and the system comes with a five year warranty.

Pricing is unlikely to be cheap.

I don't care! I want one of these! Next beer run I'll buy a lotto ticket. :)

woooooooooo

yea if you thought storing raw 1080 was getting unruly, 4k will make your jaw drop. These pro video doods drop some MAJOR $$$ on data storage...then often after a project is done, its off to the archive vault... TIME TO BUY NEW DRIVES! :-O
