The LaCie 2big Network 2 offers professional, reliable, central storage for instantly storing, sharing, and backing up from any PC or Mac® on your network. Manage your small office network easily with this full-featured file server, recommended for networks with up to 200 users. You can also use your 2big Network 2 as a print server and expand its capacity by connecting external hard drives into the external ports (USB and eSATA). It’s easy to change your RAID mode using the 2big Network 2’s web interface. For maximum capacity, choose a RAID 0 array of the two hard drives. For maximum protection, choose RAID 1 for automatic mirroring of one disk to the other (available capacity = 50%).

Extra spare disks are available as an option for immediate replacement.

You can connect your 2big Network 2 directly to your computer through a USB cable to access to a dedicated folder USBShare of up to 500GB like a normal external hard drive. This unique feature allows you to gain extra flexibility and mobility for customized usage , so you’ll be able to format this USBShare in your preferred file system using your computer.
