Product Details

LaCie 2big Network 2 4TB External Hard Drive, Model 301509U

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%). The hot-swappable disk trays even allow maintenance without affecting your workflow; a defective disk can be replaced easily without having to turn off the 2big Network 2. Extra spare disks are available as an option for immediate replacement.
