Hardware maker LaCie has released a five disk RAID with a capacity of 5 TB.

Dubbed the "S2S", the machine uses a three Gb/s SATA interface.  It claims that it can manage burst data transfer rates of more than 200 MB/s.

In a press release, LaCie said that up to four S2S boxes can be connected via an included eSATA PCI-X/Express Card.  This would scale the maximum capacity of the system to 20 TB and burst rates to 600 MB/s.

The press release says that the  eSATA interface provides enough speed to edit hours of 10-bit HD uncompressed or play back up to six 8-bit SD video streams.

Prices are $3699 for a machine with a PCI-X card or $3799 with a PCI-E card.
