    From Studio to Location: The SanDisk® Professional G-RAID® SHUTTLE 8 Story

    Imagine you’re about to embark on a journey across the western United States — from the sunlit beaches of Malibu to the snow-covered peaks of the Rockies. As the scenes shift, so will the demands on your gear, especially storage. This is the story of the SanDisk® Professional G-RAID® SHUTTLE 8, a massive capacity built to endure and empower.

    Transportable storage

    This story begins with gearing up to produce a documentary. There is a lot to consider, first and foremost everything you capture has a place to be safely stored. The centerpiece of this could be the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8. With its Thunderbolt™ 3 and USB-C™ compatibility, its 8-bay hardware RAID helps ensure that wherever your storytelling takes you, your data transfer needs will be covered. Now storing up to 192TB* of footage thanks to 24TB* drive availability across the SanDisk Professional desktop HDD offerings, that’s enough to store what is captured today and tomorrow.

    On location, it is not hard to imagine capturing beautiful videos each filled with vibrant colors and intricate details, but which are made of multitudes of data. The G-RAID SHUTTLE 8 supports demanding workflows, delivering transfer rates of up to 1,690 MB/s read** and 1,490MB/s write** in RAID 5 (performance for 160 TB* and 192 TB* models only). When the shooting day is done, there’s always footage to back up and edit. Because of the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8’s default RAID 5 configuration, you can consolidate your backups quickly and begin editing in real time directly from the device.

    Designed for the demanding creator

    A grueling shooting schedule will push your equipment to the limits. That means the reliability of your gear is paramount. The Ultrastar® enterprise-class hard drives within the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8 help guard your most critical data.

    “My greatest fear is not great white sharks or heights, but the idea of accidentally deleting all my footage,” says Florian Wolf, content creator and SanDisk Professional PRO-TEAM member. “I always make several backups of my data, which means I am constantly needing more storage. The upgraded 24 TB capacity* options for the SanDisk Professional desktop HDDs will help make my workflow even bigger, better and faster than before. Thanks to this peace of mind, I will not hesitate to shoot everything in 6K RAW .”

    And creatives such as Wolf can choose between RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60 configurations. That way you can tailor the device’s performance to your needs and project. Whether you need redundancy, speed or a balance of both, the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8 is ready to adapt.

    On the road and in the studio

    Traveling with that much data can be daunting, but the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8’s design is as mobile as it is powerful. Its compact frame belies the vast capabilities within. Its size makes it easy for you to move from one shoot location to another unencumbered. And with its dual Thunderbolt 3 ports, you can daisy chain additional devices — like 4K displays and other storage modules — streamlining your setup to a single connection point on your workstation.

    Along the way, you’ll take comfort in knowing that the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8 is backed by a 5-year limited warranty. This helps assure quality but also peace of mind, allowing you to focus on your craft rather than concerns over equipment failure.

    The Professional’s choice

    From rugged terrains to studio settings, the G-RAID SHUTTLE 8 stands as a testament to SanDisk®’s commitment to serving the needs of content creators. It bridges the gap between the field and the final cut, helping to ensure that no matter where creators go, their data remains protected, accessible, and ready for the next edit.

    * 1 TB = 1 trillion bytes. Actual user capacity may be less depending on operating environment and RAID configuration. For RAID products, storage capacity is based on RAID 0 mode.

    ** 1 MB/s = 1 million bytes per second. Based on internal testing; performance may vary depending upon host device, usage conditions, drive capacity, RAID configuration, and other factors.
