Rugged RAID Shuttle
8TB Storage in a Tough, Portable, Robust Case!

A Special LaCie Promotion

Got a big job on? Need to move a lot of files around? Collaborating with other creatives? LaCie has the solution for sharing your files safely – the Rugged RAID Shuttle.

As our cameras offer more and more resolution, our stills and video files become increasingly larger. And as we enjoy our photography and video filming more and more, we accumulate increasing amounts of imaging data that needs to be saved, protected and transferred.

LaCie has a full range of storage options, from the Rugged drives we use on location to the 6big and 12big super devices which store huge volumes of data in secure RAID arrays.

The LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle is designed flat so it can be shipped or couriered – anywhere!

Rugged to the Rescue

Since 2005, over 6 million Rugged drives have been purchased, mostly by imaging professionals.

The distinctive, bright orange Rugged range of portable hard drives has become the de-facto standard for imaging professionals – and we all know why.

Shooting on location or working on a set can be intense and while we’re always very careful with our equipment, accidents can happen.

That’s why LaCie’s Rugged range of drives are built tough. Depending on the model, Rugged drives can be IP67-rated for extreme water resistance, and all are drop, rain, dust and crush resistant. It’s durability like this that keeps photographers and filmmakers coming back for Rugged drives.

The LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle is still water resistant and will happily handle a life outdoors.

Rugged RAID Shuttle

The latest Rugged drive is the RAID Shuttle. About twice the size of normal Rugged drives, its job is to provide more storage with the same safety and security.

With 8 TB capacity, it will accommodate larger jobs and more data than the existing Rugged drives, so the RAID Shuttle isn’t a replacement, it’s an additional service.

The flat design means it’s still easy to carry in camera and gear bags, or if you need to ship your data somewhere, it will fit into standard shipping envelopes easily.

And because the LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle is drop, rain, crush and dust resistant, you know the data will arrive at its destination safe and secure.

And while bigger than other Rugged drives, the LaCie Rugged RAID Shuttle is still very portable.

Self-Encryption

Talking of security, the Rugged RAID Shuttle comes with government-grade AES-256 self-encryption, thanks to Seagate Secure™ Technology – ensuring your image files and hard work remain safe from unauthorised access and intellectual property theft.

In operation, there is a choice of RAID 0 and RAID 1.

RAID 0 effectively works as a single drive, providing more speed and more storage space.

RAID 1 halves the drive’s capacity, but provides a backup of the data – or redundancy as the technicians call it.

The Rugged RAID Shuttle comes with a single USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 connection and a power adaptor if required, and it is backwardly compatible to USB 2.0.

Of course, when it comes to unpredictable events such as severe water damage to your studio or a natural disaster, LaCie has got your back. The Rugged RAID Shuttle includes Rescue Data Recovery Services lasting the length of the warranty – which is three years! LaCie will work tirelessly to help you save your data and money with one in-lab recovery service.

The LaCie Rugged RAID Storage is just one of many Rugged portable storage devices, which now include a new range of ultra small and compact SSD devices. Whatever you require, LaCie has a solution for your data storage needs.
