LaCie Unveils Little Big Disk with Thunderbolt Tech

Yesterday marked the launch of the new MacBook Pro notebooks that pack in Thunderbolt technology. LaCie is a big name in the Mac and PC accessory market and the company is particularly well known for its line of external storage solutions. LaCie has a new version of the Little Big Disc that packs in Thunderbolt technology.

Inside the shiny little aluminum chassis of the external device hides a SSD for the most speed that can be squeezed out of the data storage system. The speed of the Intel SSDs coupled with the blazing fast 10Gbps interface of the Thunderbolt interface means that data backups with large data sets can be completed very quickly.

LaCie says that this is the first drive in a full range of storage solutions and peripherals that will use Thunderbolt that will be coming. The Little Big Disk will land in the summer of 2011. "Thunderbolt technology is a breakthrough in I/O technology and represents the future of mobile computing. Soon you will be able to carry workstation-class power and functionality in compact devices," said Philippe Spruch, Chairman and General Manager, LaCie. "LaCie is excited to be one of the first to deliver Thunderbolt technology with the LaCie Little Big Disk."
