Your business needs fast and secure professional network storage. It should let you back up multiple workstations and quickly share files, regardless of client operating system. Enter the LaCie 2big NAS: a complete backup solution that's easy to set up and with full security.
From problem to solution in 10 minutes
Don't lose your cool wrestling with a NAS built for geeks. NAS novices get up and running in 10 minutes with the 2big NAS, powered by LaCie NAS OS 2. Its convenient, Web-based interface, the dashboard, is user-friendly and provides easy access to powerful features.
Seamless network integration
The 2big NAS speaks all the necessary network languages. This makes it an excellent solution for an entire office, even if your sales force works on PCs and graphic design team uses Macs. Supports for active directory means you can import existing users and groups with a click of the mouse. No more repetitive tasks.
RAID security and scalability
RAID 1 mode provides disk-failure proof, hardware-level data protection. If a single disk fails, you can replace it without turning off your appliance. Just swap in a one without losing a single byte of data. Whatever the challenge, zero data loss, zero work interruption, you can even opt for the diskless model and simply add more storage capacity as your business grows. This lets you reduce your initial investment while ensuring a long-term solution.
Automated NAS backup
Take the hassle and potential for human error out of backing up your NAS. The dashboard lets you replicate the contents of your 2big NAS onto an attached USB/eSATA hard drive. Or vice-versa, 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 2big NAS. You can also use your NAS to back up another NAS, whether it's on the local network or remote. 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 100 MB/s transfer speeds. The 2big NAS is powered by a 2 GHz processor. This combination optimizes file transfers between employees. Define whether a folder should be private or public within the company. For private folders, closely control access by setting user- or group-level permissions. It's surprisingly easy; whatever your office's internal file sharing needs, the 2big NAS delivers fast and flexible accessibility.
You can set up an iSCSI share of your 2big NAS and mount it as a local share on your computer in the same way that external hard drives are mounted when connecting to your PC/Mac. An iSCSI connection will bring you performance and flexibility for professional applications, such as backup or virtualization.
Dual cooling for long-term reliability
The 2big NAS's advanced dual cooling system 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.
Simplify your office's printing scheme by connecting a compatible printer to one of 5big Network 2's USB ports. Instantly your employees will be able to print from any computer on the network.
Energy-saving innovationsProduct Highlights
The LaCie 2big NAS helps you to reduce power consumption by letting you control its energy usage. In eco mode it uses one-tenth the energy of the previous generation of LaCie NAS. Without reducing employee access to data, you can also schedule shut down/restart depending on the day of the week. 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 NAS.
