The industry-standard operating system
Go with a professional backup system for your small business. Go with what you know. The LaCie 5big Office is powered by the industry-standard Windows Home Server 2011. Get up and running in a flash with a straightforward setup process and a familiar Windows environment.
A cost-effective, professional solution for small business
It's no small feat to find a professional backup solution for a small office on a budget. Capable of backing up 10 PCs, the 5big Office is the ideal choice for your business. It comes with a single drive inside so you can add additional ones as you need more capacity. Reduce your investment and ensure a long-term solution.
Make the most of your capacity
Go for a NAS that grows with your needs and lets you do more with fewer gigabytes. No need to back up the same files, such as email attachments or system files, for several employees. These redundant data are a waste of space. Thanks to its PC backup data deduplication feature, the 5big Office will only back up a single instance of redundant data. This lets you not only optimize your storage space, but also increase backup speed. Smaller backups equal faster backups and more available storage space.
Efficient cooling for a long-lasting product
The cooling system can have a dramatic impact on the long-term reliability of your server. The 5big Office's dual cooling is the best protection against overheating throughout its lifespan. First, its solid aluminum casing diverts and dissipates heat effectively. Second, its whisper-quiet, thermo-regulated Noctua fan automatically adapts its spinning speed to the internal temperature. As a result, the fan cools the components, which is vital for a better long-term investment.
Protection against any calamity, including human error
Your business data are sensitive, and protecting them is paramount. The 5big Office secures your files at every point, taking human error out of the equation. It automates backups of your office's computers, from individual files - even open ones - to the entire system. Simply install connector - the backup client software - on your office's computers, then the 5big Office does the rest. No further configuration required. Combine this with PC backup data deduplication, and you're truly getting the most out of your capacity.
Restore any file or even an entire system
With Windows Home Server 2011, it's easy to restore a file or even a complete workstation operating system. Thanks to robust versioning management, you can prevent data loss in the case that an employee accidentally deletes an important file. You can even browse through all saved files and select the one you want to restore. What's more, if a workstation's hard drive fails, you can restore the entire system. A simple wizard helps you to create a reinstallation DVD or USB key. This lets you restore the damaged system to the exact state captured in the latest backup.
No data loss, no downtime
The 5big Office supports secured RAID 1 and RAID 5 modes for automatic, hardware-level 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.
Distance your data from threats
For an additional level of data protection, back up your data to an offsite location. Prevent local technical problems or acts of God from causing downtime with NAS-to-DAS backups. Simply set up automatic backups to a connected DAS, which you can then take away to a safe place. Or, eliminate the need for human intervention and automate this task with NAS-to-NAS backups. This lets you schedule frequent backups to another NAS located in another room or building.
Integration into your infrastructure is as simple as ABC. No network knowledge is required to start. Simply connect the 5big Office to your network, run the utilities DVD, and configure automatic backups. It takes just a few clicks. The dashboard gives you quick access to key tasks. Control RAID management, user management, or backup status in the blink of an eye.
Low maintenanceProduct Highlights
Hard drives need to be replaced when they are full. With the 5big Office, you can slide in a one without needing to hit the power button first. You can install higher capacity drives to add storage, or replace a failed drive, all with no downtime.
