G-SPEED storage solutions now ship with 4TB hard drives


G-Technology says its G-SPEED RAID external storage solutions now come equipped with the industry's highest capacity enterprise-class hard disk drives (HDDs): the 4TB HGST Ultrastar drives.

The company says they offer 7,200 RPM performance, 64MB cache, the highest 2.0 million hour mean-time-between-failure²(MTBF) HDD specification, and enterprise-class features. The 4TB HGST enterprise-class drives are purportedly the only SATA HDDs rated at 2.0 million hours mean time between failure (MTBF).

They also utilize enterprise-specific firmware to minimize the performance impact of rotational vibration interference (RVI) found in rack-mounted servers and multi-drive storage arrays, and feature special error recovery and detection features. All G-SPEED solutions feature an aluminum enclosure with four hot-swappable drives, and a "smart" cooling fan.

The G-SPEED Q RAID storage solution for creative professionals comes equipped with 3Gbit eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 (via cable) and USB 2.0 interfaces. With capacities up to 16TB and speeds reaching in excess of 200MBps using eSATA, the G-SPEED Q solution supports SD and HD Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere compressed workflows. Formatted for Macs, the G-SPEED Q solution can be configured in RAID 0 or 5. Now available, the G-SPEED Q comes in 8TB (US$1,399.95), 12TB ($1,799.95) and 16TB ($2299.95) models.

The G-SPEED eS is a compact four-bay eSATA solution for professional content creators. When used with the G-Technology PCIe x4 RAID controller (sold separately), a single G-SPEED eS supports up to four simultaneous streams of ProRes422 HQ or one stream of uncompressed 1080/60i. As many as four G-SPEED eS enclosures can be attached to a single workstation, providing up to 64TB of RAID protected storage. The G-Technology PCIe x4 RAID controller supports RAID 0, 1, 5 and JBOD, and is configured and monitored using a full-featured web interface. The G-SPEED eS external storage solutions are now available and come in 8TB ($1,399.95), 12TB ($1,899.95) and 16TB ($2399.95) versions.

The G-SPEED eS PRO is a solution for uncompressed HD and 2K workflows with mini Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) connectivity. When used with an ATTO R680 PCIe RAID controller (sold separately), a single G-SPEED eS PRO enclosure supports real-time playback of 10-bit uncompressed 1080/60i with more than 400MBps sustained performance. When two G-SPEED eS PROs are connected to an ATTO R680 card in RAID 5 it delivers speeds close to 1,000MBps, supporting two simultaneous streams of uncompressed 10-bit HD or a single 2K DPX sequence.

The G-SPEED eS PRO with the ATTO eight-lane PCIe RAID controller supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 6, and can scale up to 32TB, making it the most cost-effective desktop RAID storage solution designed specifically for high-end post. The G-SPEED eS PRO solution is now available in 8TB ($1,899.95), 12TB ($2,399.95) and 16TB ($2899.95) flavors.

All G-SPEED products with enterprise-class drives feature a three-year standard factory warranty. For more info go to www.g-technology.com .
