iodyne Pro Data 48TB Announced - High Capacity Storage with 5GB/s Thunderbolt Speeds

iodyne has just announced a 48TB version of its speedy Thunderbolt storage solution: the Pro Data. You can store more than 6 hours of 8K REDCODE RAW footage or 20+ hours of 4K ARRI ALEXA 35 ARRIRAW footage inside, all without sacrificing portability or redundancy. However, with a price tag of $17,500, this ultra-fast storage solution is surely not for everyone.

The U.S. company iodyne makes storage solutions for content creators, post-production facilities, and DITs looking for some of the best transfer speeds on the market. Also, with built-in encryption and redundancy capabilities (RAID-0 or RAID-6), they did their homework and know how precious your images are.
