About this item

The LaCie 2big Network Attached Storage Server is the ultimate approach to a flexible network storage RAID (Redundant Array of Independent/Inexpensive Disks) solution. Since needs differ among all users, the LaCie 2big NAS allows you to choose between faster transfer rates or file mirroring with a simple flip of a switch. For high-speed demanding programs, such as video editing or graphics, you may choose RAID 0 (fast). If data backup is important, RAID 1 (safe) will keep a copy of each file on the 2big's two disks (3.5" internal hard drives sold separately). Providing greater integrity and validation than standard hard disk storage, RAID technology is one of the best means to protect your data. With both an eSATA and a USB 2.0 interface, you will experience enhanced transfer rates to complement whatever RAID level you choose.

The LaCie 2big NAS has a blazing fast read speed of up to 100 Mb/s and a write speed of up to 55 Mb/s as well as 6 TB of hard drive storage space. Authorized users can take full advantage of these speeds and storage space through the local network or by remote access using LaCie MyNAS, a web-based interface. A free iOS app with the same name is also available for iPhones and iPads. The LaCie NAS is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux systems along with their respective client backup software (i.e., Time Machine, Windows Backup, etc.) so users can connect to the LaCie 2big NAS without having to use the same operating system.

Key Features

  • Automated NAS Backup: The Dashboard lets you replicate the contents of your LaCie 2big NAS onto an attached USB/eSATA hard drive and vice-versa. You'll be able to create automatic backup jobs tailored to each of your attached devices
  • Backups can also be configured to start automatically each time a USB hard drive is connected to the LaCie 2big NAS. You can also use your NAS to back up another NAS, whether it's on the local network or through remote access
  • You can even configure a nightly backup of your NAS onto a backup server in a completely different building
  • Faster Internal File Sharing: Boost your business productivity with up to a 100 MB/s read speed and a 55 MB/s write speed. The LaCie 2big NAS is powered by a 2 GHz ARM processor and the highly efficient ext4 file system
  • This combination optimizes file transfers between users. Everyone on the network can share files quickly and easily, whether they are on a PC, Mac or Linux platform. You'll be able to define whether a folder should be private or public within the network
  • For private folders, you'll be able to closely control access by setting user- or group-level permissions
  • Mobile Productivity: LaCie MyNAS revolutionizes NAS remote access, delivering the simplest setup in the industry. Just name your network storage without leaving the Dashboard and it's ready to be accessed from the road. All you need is an Internet connection

  • Setup wizards with presets make advanced tasks such as RAID management, user authorization and NAS-to-NAS backups much more manageable
  • Energy Efficient: The LaCie 2big NAS helps you reduce power consumption by letting you control its energy usage. In eco mode, it uses one-tenth of the energy of its NAS predecessors without reducing user access to the stored data
  • Will also be able to schedule shut down and restart times for your LaCie 2big NAS. It also supports wake on LAN protocol, so if your NAS is asleep and using zero electricity, you can easily wake it up from your computer without needing to be physically next to the LaCie 2big NAS
  • Dual-Cooling for Long-Term Reliability: The LaCie 2big NAS has an advanced dual cooling system that ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. Its solid aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently
  • In addition, its thermo-regulated fan turns on and off according to internal temperature. It cools the components while reducing electricity usage
