LaCie has started shipping the 8big Rack (originally announced back in April) that features Thunderbolt 2 speeds and capacities of up to 48TB in a 1U rackmount size. That’s twice the density of the typical rack storage and you can daisy chain as many as 36 LaCie 8big Racks to a single Mac Pro. It’s also dramatically easier to set up than Fibre Channel DAS solutions, while featuring hardware RAID 5/6 and fully redundant disks, fans, and PSU.

The 8big Rack is also designed with 4K video workflows in mind. It makes it easier for videographers to work directly from RAW files while seeing edits in real time.

Originally announced at the 2014 National Association of Broadcasters Convention, the LaCie 8big Rack 48 TB ($4,999.99) is available now through LaCie and its resellers. The product is also available in four–disk 12 TB ($1,699.99) or eight–disk 24 TB (2,799.99) configurations. Thunderbolt 2 is compatible with the same cables and connectors as first–generation Thunderbolt.

Video pros, meet the king of storage for 4K workflows:
