If you’re a video producer, you know the value of reliable storage solutions. A device that can manage heavy workloads, provide fast data transfers and help safeguard your content is a must. That’s why SanDisk® Professional offers the G-DRIVE® PROJECT and G-RAID® MIRROR — two professional-grade, high-performance storage solutions designed for fast, reliable backups and project workflows.
SanDisk Professional G-DRIVE PROJECT
The SanDisk Professional G-DRIVE PROJECT is a high-capacity external hard drive that lets you quickly back up or add extra storage to your computer. Available in up to 22 TB*, it features a Thunderbolt™ 3 (40 Gbps) port that enables high-speed data transfers up to 260 MB/s read and write¹. You can also daisy-chain up to five additional devices using the Thunderbolt 3 port for more flexibility and convenience.
Powered by a 7200 RPM Ultrastar® enterprise-class hard drive, the G-DRIVE PROJECT provides enhanced performance for your demanding workloads. It can also offload, make copies or edit content from a PRO-BLADE™ SSD Mag (sold separately) through the new Mag slot at blazing-fast speeds. The PRO-BLADE SSD Mag is a removable solid-state drive that offers up to 4 TB* of storage that’s part of a modular SSD ecosystem and supports up to 3,000 MB/s read and up to 2,600 MB/s write speeds² depending upon the enclosure used.
The G-DRIVE PROJECT has a premium, anodized aluminum casing that not only complements your high-end computer but also offers reliable durability you can feel. It also has a color-coded cable indicator system that lets you quickly identify each port type by matching the color around the port to the color on the corresponding cable. Plus, you can adjust the brightness of the power-saving LED light at the push of a button.
The G-DRIVE PROJECT works great with compatible iPad tablets with a USB Type-C™ port3, allowing you to use your favorite production apps and streamline your creative workflow. This device comes with a five-year limited warranty and is compatible with ac macOS 10.12 or later as well as Windows® 10 or later.
SanDisk Professional G-RAID MIRROR
The SanDisk Professional G-RAID MIRROR is a dual-bay external hard drive solution that offers peace of mind for your backups and project workflows. Preconfigured in RAID 1 mode, commonly called “mirroring,” this device automatically copies your important data onto a second drive. This built-in data redundancy means that if one drive fails, your data is still accessible on the other.
However, if you want to change the MIRROR’s RAID mode, you can. Simply flip a switch on the device when you set it up to switch from the default RAID 1 to RAID 0 or JBOD, with no need for special software or apps. RAID 0 mode enhances both the device’s performance and storage capacity by merging the two drives into a single large volume. In JBOD mode, each drive functions independently as separate volumes.
The G-RAID MIRROR also features a PRO-BLADE SSD Mag slot (10 Gbps) so it also is compatible with the PRO-BLADE ecosystem. It utilizes the Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) interface for quick transfers, image editing, workload management and the ability to daisy-chain up to five additional devices. And its sleek, anodized aluminum enclosure not only complements your workstation but also provides durability and cooling. Additionally, the G-RAID MIRROR includes a color-coded cable indicator system and an option to customize the brightness of the LED light.
Featuring two removable 7200 RPM Ultrastar enterprise-class hard drives, the G-RAID MIRROR offers a range of capacities, from 12 TB* to 44 TB* of maximum capacity, to meet your specific needs. In default RAID 1 mode, the device delivers up to 22 TB* of usable storage capacity. The G-RAID MIRROR also comes with a five-year limited warranty and is compatible with macOS 10.12 or later and Windows 10 or later.
