Superior RAID Security
Hot-Swappable Recovery
A highly secure and fast RAID storage solution, the LaCie

harnessing the power of four disks in one tower. The RAID
system offers a perfect combination of total available
capacity and the ability to rescue data in the event of a disk
failure. The LaCie Biggest FW800 supports RAID levels 0,
0+1 and 5, as well as RAID 5+hot spare.
The LaCie Biggest FW800 allows for online hot swapping
should a drive fail, with automatic data rebuilding to a
new drive without downtime. With the added option of
designating one of the drives a hot spare, the Biggest
FW800 will automatically replace a faulty one. For
additional protection, it will automatically react to a
drive, fan or power failure and even shut down above a
temperature of 55° C to preserve itself and your data.

TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon
operating environment (typically 5–10% less). Available storage capacity also depends on the RAID level:
RAID 0 = 100%, RAID 0+1 = 50%, RAID 5 = 75%, and RAID 5+spare = 50%.
