Description

The LaCie 5big Network 2 offers professional, reliable, central storage for instantly storing, sharing, and backing up from any PC or Mac on your network. It provides spacious storage capacity in five bays, expandable with its two USB and two eSATA ports. You can also take advantage of its two Ethernet ports to do link aggregation and get twice the performance of single Gigabit Ethernet connection. Recommended for networks of up to 300 users, the 5big Network 2 is the right solution for IT environments looking for high capacity and high transfer speed rates. Thanks to the secure RAID modes, including RAID 5 and RAID 6, the 5big Network 2 enables you to keep data access even if one disk fails. And with room for five disks, the 5big offers more capacity than four-disk solutions in almost every RAID mode. Extra spare disks are available as an option for immediate replacement.

Get extra security and increase data portability by backing up your LaCie 5big Network 2 - on your own schedule - to an external hard drive through its USB and eSATA ports using the built-in copy system. With the 5big Network 2's widget-like dynamic web interface, administration is easy, convenient and secure. Thanks to its DHCP and Apipa support, network configuration is fast and automatic. The product integrates easily with existing Windows domains using Active Directory and it allows user, groups, share and quota management.

We bought this drive for our office just recently. We've set up separate backups and permissions for all users. Everything works well. The data is even accessible over the Internet, which is very convenient when working remotely. This is an excellent file server, just what we needed.

I'm a power user and I need to share a lot of files for my work, so I decided to invest in a serious NAS server. This unit is perfect, it's big, it a good choice of RAID modes and it works quietly, so I can leave it running overnight and not be disturbed by the noise. The design is nice too, and the box is compact and very solid. Very pleased with it.

We've been using this server for a year now and have had no problems so far. It's a solid backup server. It uses little power compared to the previous server we had. There's a good choice of Raid modes that are easily configurable. We've also connected 5big to UPS via USB port. All in all it's a good device with a nice feature set. I'm fully satisfied with it thus far.

I've been using 5big for about a year and it's definitely worth the money. This drive has many excellent qualities - great design, a good choice of RAID modes and a rich feature set. It supports UPnP and DLNA, and direct streaming of media files. I love that it can also be setup for remote access. The transfer speeds are great, and the overall built quality and performance are excellent.

We've got 5big for our office as a central backup server. 5big comes with 5 hot-swappable drives. There are 7 possible RAID modes and a wealth of useful features, such as file compression for backup, professional backup software for a Mac and PC, and much more. It's been 6 months since we've installed 5big and it's been working flawlessly.

5big Network 2 was bought as a media server for our office. The setup was easy thanks to the user-friendly control panel. 5big has an integrated iTunes (DAAP) server for playing videos, which is very convenient. I quite like the design: the unit looks sleek and is very well built. A great reliable server overall!

We needed a reliable solution to ensure secure storage of office files. 5big Network 2 ended up on the top of our shortlist. It's as an easy-to-use and efficient device for backup and network storage. The included software allowed me to setup automatic backup in a matter of minutes. RAID setup was a breeze. The data is encrypted. The administration is very simple and does not require any special skills. This server is a very cool idea. Highly recommended.

I've purchased this server for mirrored backup for our office. It works great. The setup was easy. It only takes a few minutes to change the RAID configuration. The web interface is well done and easy to understand. The unit is very quiet, high quality and has got plenty of useful features. In my opinion 5big has a great price-performance ratio.
