Over the past year we have seen a revolution in the external storage industry! In the past the only way to achieve throughputs of over 3GB per second required expensive host adapters. Now USB3 and Thunderbolt provide blazing fast data rates that video editors love!

Today's computers now come with USB3 ports which provide you with 5GB/sec of throughput - which is more than 6 times faster than Firewire800!! Unlike USB2, the new USB3 is a very reliable and stable connection that is 100% up to the demands of post production work. USB3 is more than 1.5 times faster than eSata, and every bit as solid.

If your computer has Thunderbolt you can get 10GB/sec data rates - more than 12 times as fast as FireWire800 and twice as fast as USB3! In fact Thunderbolt RAIDs can deliver speeds as fast as expensive RAID controllers costing a thousand dollars or more. Even cooler, Thunderbolt gives you TWO channels of 10GB/sec throughput!!

G-Technology G-Drive Pro, G-Dock & G-Drive EV

The folks over at G-Tech have done it again! I can't believe how powerful, affordable and cool their new line is of storage products!

The G-Drive Pro is a 4TB Thunderbolt storage solution that delivers 480+ Megs/sec data transfers. This is simply amazing! No one at the show could figure out how they can deliver the same throughput as SSD drives at a fraction of the cost - just $849. Think about that, at around $400 for a 512GB SSD, you would need 8 drives for 4TB and that would run you well over $3,000!! G-Drive Pro 4TB is expected in May and we are now taking backorders.

As Ian Andes, VP of sales for G-Tech explained on the NAB show floor "Fifteen minutes of 2K footage is just under 200GB of space, which would take over a half hour to transfer via FireWire800. With G-Drive Pro you can get that down to under 6 minutes. Now let's talk 4K. Fifteen minutes 4K footage takes almost 800GB of data, which would take over an hour and 50 minutes to transfer via FireWire800. With G-Drive Pro you can get that down to 36 minutes."

G-Tech was also showing what they call the next evolution of storage. The G-DOCK ev - a Thunderbolt Expandable RAID storage solution with two removable hard drives. G-DOCK ev is a removable cartridge based Thunderbolt solution. G-DOCK connects to your computer via Thunderbolt and accepts two G-DRIVE ev cartridges that can be configured as JBOD, RAID-1 mirror or RAID-0 for maximum throughput. Each ev cartridge has both a SATA port for connecting to the G-DOCK and a USB3 port for use as a stand alone drive. G-Drive ev is a 2 1/2" media cartridge that gives you 136 Megs/sec on its own via USB3, or you can mount it into the G-DOCK, stripe the drives together as RAID-0 for over 250 Megs/sec. The G-Drive evPLUS is a slightly taller cartridge that gives you 250 Megs/sec, or a blistering 500 Megs/sec when striped RAID-0 in the G-DOCK! HOLY SMOKES, that's fast!

The G-DOCK ev, which includes two 1TB G-DRIVE ev modules, will be available in May for an MSRP of $749.95. Designed as a flexible and scalable ecosystem, additional 500GB or 1TB G-DRIVE ev modules can be purchased separately for $149.95 and $199.95 MSRP, respectively. For increased performance the 1TB G-DRIVE ev PLUS modules can also be purchased separately for use with the G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt. The G-DRIVE ev PLUS modules will be available this summer for $349.95 MSRP.
