The Diskless 2big NAS Server from LaCie 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 100MB/s and a write speed of up to 55MB/s. Authorized users can take full advantage of these speeds 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.

RAID Security and Scalability
RAID 1 mode provides hardware-level data protection and secures important files from disk failure. If a single disk fails, you can replace it without having to turn off the LaCie 2big NAS, thanks to its hot-swappable design
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 100MB/s read speed and a 55MB/s write speed. The LaCie 2big NAS is powered by a 2GHz 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. From within a browser, authorized users can download, manage and upload files remotely. They can even stream image and audio files. A free iOS app gives them instant access to all the files and storage capacity right on your iPhone or iPad
Seamless Network Integration
The LaCie 2big NAS is compatible with Mac, Linux and Windows. This makes it a viable solution for an entire office, even if your sales department uses PCs and your marketing department uses Macs. And with support for Active Directory, you'll be able to import existing users and groups with a simple click of a mouse
Easy Setup
Even if you're a NAS novice, you'll be able to have the LaCie 2big NAS up and running in 10 minutes. Powered by LaCie NAS OS 2, the Dashboard is a convenient, web-based interface that is user-friendly and provides easy access to powerful features. 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. You 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
Centralized Printing
Simplify printing by connecting a compatible printer to the USB 2.0 port on the LaCie 2big NAS. Now any authorized user will be able to print from any computer on the network
