" The G-Speed Q delivers professional performance. "

Fueling the gigabyte-busting demands of today’s content hungry consumers requires an investment in storage technology on the part of digital media marketers and producers.

While not a typically glamorous item on your budget, the purchase decisions around these devices includes an evaluation of the transience of their supported technologies — for example, do you require the latest USB 3.0 — or will relying on legacy interfaces be sufficient for your current and future needs?

Fortunately, there are many solutions to this problem, including multi-interface units that work with a wide range of computers, cameras and other devices.

Built by electronics and industrial powerhouse Hitachi under its G-Technology brand, the G-Speed Q (www.gtechnology.com/products/gspeed-q.cfm) is a high-performance, quad-interface, four-bay RAID digital asset storage solution that could find a home in any adult content producer’s workshop.

Compatible with Mac OS X and Windows operating systems, the G-Speed Q comes with a three-year factory warranty and features a compact aluminum enclosure boasting an industrial design and quiet cooling fan for reliable operation and data integrity.

The device is equipped with 3Gbit eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interfaces, supporting multistream SD and compressed HD workflows, with a small form-factor that makes it attractive for laptop and mobile applications.

The G-Speed Q delivers professional performance. According to its manufacturer, when connected via a 4x eSATA adapter, the G-Speed Q sustains more than 220MB/sec. of throughput, while its FireWire connection maximizes FireWire 800 bus performance, delivering 75-80MB/sec. of data transfer.

The G-Speed Q obtains this level of performance by using four hot-swappable enterprise-level 7200 RPM, 3.5” 3Gbit SATA hard drives for optimal reliability and availability, with combined storage capacities of up to 12TB.

The G-Speed Q also offers an internal RAID controller supporting RAID 0 for maximum performance or RAID 5 configurations for increased data protection.

The unit includes RAID level selection software and retails for around $1,250.
