Several weeks ago, we posted a blog with a few tips on backing-up and archiving your work, a sure-fire way of preventing the dreaded nightmare of a computer crash and losing all your beloved photographs. Trust me on this one; it’s not something you want to experience. In our previous blog we gave a simple step-by-step guide on archiving your work, and ensuring you have several back-ups in the case of a crash, natural disaster or human-error, while including a great device to use to safely store your valuable images; the LaCie external hard-drive.
LaCie offers a wide variety of external hard-drives for whatever your needs may be. If you’re the type of photographer that can never stay in one place, and that includes all your equipment, that probably means you need your devices to handle that kind of lifestyle, and the LaCie Rugged series would be perfect for you!
Offered with both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interfaces, the Rugged series is allows for universal connectivity for both Mac and PC. Move data more than five times faster than with FireWire 800 than any USB 2.0 device, and ensure that you can upload your data quickly while on the go! The Rugged is MIL-compliant for superior data protection, which means an accidental drop up to 4 feet won't do any damage! Top it off with military-grade 256-bit encryption, password protect your information without worry of prying eyes.
And if you’re the type of videographer that needs a stable hard-drive for your awesome workspace, the d2 Desktop series is exactly what you’re looking for. With dual Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0 and boost speeds up to 1150 MB/s, sitting around and waiting for your data to transfer will never be an issue! It's even possible to push speeds up to five times faster by installing the LaCie d2 SSD upgrade! Built with an innovative, all-aluminum unibody design, you'll notice incredibly low vibration and operating noise. Packed with all the value for pros, the d2 includes everything a professional will need for secure backup: a backup software suite, and compatibility with Time Machine and Windows Backup. Much like the Rugged design, the d2 also allows you to password-protect with AES 256-bit encryption.
There is even an option for a USB key that fits right on your keychain if you’re on the go, and need quick access. Like I said, there is a guarantee LaCie has something you’re looking for.
With options ranging from 8GB of storage all the way to 48TB (Yes, I just said 48 Terabits), there is always enough room for your workload – and then some.
