G-Technology releases G-SPEED STUDIO XL - 64TB 8-Bay Thunderbolt 2 Storage Solution

G-Technology has a new addition to their recent Studio storage line: the G-Speed Studio XLThe 2 and 4-bay units started shipping last July, whilst the new  G-Speed Studio XL holds up to eight removable enterprise-class 7,200 RPM SATA III hard drives, offering up to 64TB storage.

Compared to the previous Studio models announced at NAB 2014, the transfer rate and performance speed in RAID 0 jumped up to 1350 MB/s compared to the 360 MB/s and 700 MB/s speeds of the G-RAID® Studio and G-SPEED Studio respectively.

Designed with the new MacPro in mind, the new addition to the G-Technology Studio family is configurable in RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60 and like the others can be daisy-chained via dual Thunderbolt 2 ports.

Here’s a quick overview of the key features:


  • Up to 1350MB/sec sustained transfer rates
  • Thunderbolt 2 technology
  • Hardware RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 & 60
  • Enterprise Class SATA III hard drives – up to 64! TB
  • Supports multi-stream HD, 2K and compressed 4K workflows
  • 3-Year limited warranty

In an industry where drive space always seems lacking and formats are growing larger (6K and some day beyond…) it’s good to know that G-Technology is working on substantial and affordable solutions.

The G-Speed Studio XL will be available in November; retail pricing starts at $3,599.95 for 24TB and up to $6,999.95 for 64TB.

Here’s the download link for the white paper with details of the G-Speed Studio XL.

Attendees of the International Broadcasting Convention can preview the G-Speed Studio XL today at the G-Technology Booth #7.G15.
