Add Terabytes to Your Network
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 features up to 15TB** of 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 50 users, the 5big Network 2 is the right solution for IT environments looking for high capacity and high transfer speed rates.

RAID Protection
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. The hot-swappable disk trays*** even allow maintenance without affecting your workflow. "Spare" modes allow a second level of protection; a sort of "automatic maintenance" that will immediately start rebuilding the RAID protection in case of a disk failure. 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.

A Complete Backup Solution
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. The 5big Network 2 also comes with three client licenses for Genie® Backup Manager Pro™ for Windows® and three licenses for Intego® Backup Manager Pro™ for Mac. This software can be installed on each PC or Mac for client backups to the NAS, and lets you reliably and efficiently back up your documents, emails, settings, or other digital assets. It supports compressed, encrypted, or image backups and implements a computer recovery function in case of a system failure. The LaCie 5big Network 2 is also compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6, including Time Machine®, making it an ideal partner for your Mac.

iSCSI Target
You can set up an iSCSI share of your 5big Network 2 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. You can use the 5big Network 2 as final backup destination of any server integrating an iSCSI initiator.

Simple, User-Friendly Administration
With the 5big Network 2's new widget-like dynamic web interface, administration is easy, convenient, and secure. Thanks to 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, group, share and quota management. Access to administration page and shares is easy using LaCie Network Assistant; and, on top of that, it can provide its administrator notifications via email of events like backup, disk failure, high temperature, etc.

Eco Management
The LaCie 5big Network 2 helps you to reduce power consumption by switching to idle mode (where the disk spins off) after a determined inactivity time. Also, you can schedule a deep sleep on/off mode according to your needs. Thanks to the Wake-on-LAN feature, it can be switched back to operating mode from the client side. The 5big Network 2 also integrates UPS support••• through its USB ports to ensure proper shutdown in case of power failure. On top of that, its exclusive sturdy and elegant aluminum design makes it your ecological partner; it's recyclable and ROHS compliant.

Great Value, 2011-11-13
By KS 
I use 5big Network 2 as a central file server with remote access. The setup was very simple, you don't need to have any specialized knowledge to install and administer the unit. 5big is rather self-contained and pretty much self-sufficient. I've been using it for almost a year now and it's been running flawlessly. I'm very impressed.

Excellent disk array, 2011-11-24
By dgRureydv 
I work for a video studio. 5big at the office is used to store our media archive. The array supports UPnP A/V and DLNA (location, support and streaming of video and audio files). Plus there're a number of RAID modes and you can choose the necessary mode for each of the tasks. Excellent device that works like a champ!

Great server, 2011-10-01
By Little Mo 
I'm very impressed with this server. It works exactly as advertised. Has loads of nice features and is easy to setup and manage. Once it was connected to the network it was immediately recognized by all computers, both Macs and PCs. RAID is easily configurable. I have only positive impressions to share so far.
