LaCie 2big Network 4TB Storage
The LaCie 2big Network offers professional, reliable, central storage for instantly storing, sharing, and backing up from any computer on your network. Manage your home or small office network easily with this full-featured file server. With the 2big Network, you can share files among Windows, Mac, and Linux users, thanks to its SMB and AFP support; or connect remotely through FTP, HTTP and HTTPS file systems. Easily and quickly select your RAID modes with the manual switch on the back of the drive. The hot-swappable disk trays even allow maintenance without affecting your workflow; in RAID 1 mode, a defective disk can be replaced easily without having to turn off the 2big Network. With Windows ADS domain support, there's no need to recreate existing user and group accounts in your Windows domain, making the 2big Network easy to manage for IT Administrators. Thanks to the Wake-on-LAN feature, the 2big Network can easily be switched back to operating mode from the client side. With the 2big Network, it's easy to download big files using its integrated torrent server, without even needing your computer to be turned on. You can also play your media files stored in your 2big Network directly on any UPnP AV-compatible device or via a Digital Media Adapter (DMA), such as a PS3 or Xbox. In fact, the 2big Network has been developed to be compatible with any DLNA multimedia device, and also works with iTunes.
