The Sophisticated Storage Media Pros Trust

Performance, security, and speed - the G-Technology G-RAID with Thunderbolt hard drive storage system gives you all of this and more, making it an excellent choice for any serious artist, engineer, or producer. Loaded with two removable 6TB enterprise-class HGST 7,200rpm SATA III hard disks built to handle heavy workloads with ease, this G-RAID system provides you with easy RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD configuration options. And with its combination of Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 connectivity, this hard drive system is ready for high track counts and professional audio resolutions.

G-Technology G-RAID with Thunderbolt Hard Drive Storage System at a Glance:
  • Ultra-flexible multi-disk configuration
  • Enterprise-class disks for serious stability
  • Built for extreme speed and performance
Ultra-flexible multi-disk configuration

This 2-disk G-RAID system offers you a selection of configuration options, so you can choose a format that best suits your needs. Configuration options include RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD. RAID 0 writes across both disks evenly, distributing the workload to minimize read/write times. The result is extremely fast performance that's perfect for high-track-count sessions with high-resolution audio and massive sample databases. If you're more concerned about data safety than speed, then RAID 1 is what you want. RAID 1 writes the same data to both drives, so if one drive fails, then all your data is still there on the other. Finally, there's JBOD, which is a spanning protocol. This lets you use two hard disks as one continuous volume. It doesn't provide the performance boost of RAID 0, but it does let you use two hard disks of different sizes.

Enterprise-class disks for serious stability

Unlike standard consumer hard drives, the removable enterprise-class disks that ship with this G-RAID system are built to withstand extremely high workloads with a vastly lower rate of failure. Just to be clear, even G-Technology's most modest offerings feature the highest quality HGST hard disks, which undergo extreme scrutiny and an extensive burn-in process to ensure their reliability. But, enterprise class takes hark disk construction to a whole new level, allowing your G-RAID drive to run day in and day out at maximum activity, without putting your precious data at risk.

Built for extreme speed and performance

Don't let connectivity be your bottleneck! From our professional studios to each individual Sales Engineer, the crew here at Sweetwater loves Thunderbolt 2 technology for the extreme transfer rates it offers. We're talking about up to 440MB per second - the kind of data rates media professionals look for when working with 4K video files. Huge sample libraries and epic track counts are simply no problem for your G-RAID system, and thanks to USB 3.0 connectivity, taking your G-RAID rig over to a non-Thunderbolt computer is a piece of cake.

G-Technology G-RAID with Thunderbolt Hard Drive Storage System Features:
  • A 2-hard-drive, 12TB system designed to provide the speed, security, and performance you need
  • Removable 6TB enterprise-class HGST 7,200rpm SATA III hard disks easily handle heavy workloads
  • Easily configurable as a RAID 0, RAID 1, or JBOD volume for maximum flexibility

Questionable design

I've been purchasing G-tech drives for more than 10-years and never had a problem until I purchased this granddaddy of them all. The drive arrived and was clearly an open box item. I notified Sweetwater immediately and I was told that it wasn't uncommon for the sales folks to open a box to answer a customers' question. That in itself was not something I expected to hear.Upon inspection I noticed the door was open so clearly somebody had been messing with it. Then again the door design is not consistent with the quality of other G-tech drives. When you close the door you have to push it in extremely hard and once it's closed you can't push in to reopen it by hand. I had to use a plastic pry device typically used for auto detailing/dash radio removal. It's in extremely poor design and not well thought out. As much as I wanted a quality RAID TB/USB3 drive, this simply wasn't it so back it went.
