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.

I've been using my 5big server for several months now and have been mostly happy with it. The transfer rate is good. The setup was easy. The server has been working admirably so far. I strongly recommend this model to anybody who needs stable performance and large storage capacity.

I am a pro photographer and data storage safety has always been important to me. I've got this 5TB LaCie network server about a year ago, and it has been working very well so far. It's also easy to manage. Highly recommend this product.

I've got my LaCie 5big Network 2 six months ago. And I'm so used to it now. It works flawlessly, after six months of use I still have 1TB effective capacity available. This 5big server is amazing. Everything about it has been great from the design (great looks, solid aluminum) to the ease of installation and the speed.

We've bought this unit as a centralized backup server and auxiliary storage for our office. We needed something easy to install and manage and affordable in terms of price, but at the same time high quality and with a good choice of features. Indeed the installation and RAID configuration was very easy. We have the unit running for several months with no problems. The speed is quite fast and it actually doubles if the unit is connected by both LAN ports to the router. The unit appears to be solidly designed and runs fairly cool and quiet. I'd recommend this product.
