LaCie has announced their two new high capacity storage devices, the d2 network and the Big Disk Network. The d2 network supports up to 1.5TB storage capacity while the Big Disk network combines the power of two drives in a RAID 0 setting to give the user a 4TB storage capacity.
Both the d2 network and the Big Disk Network comes in an aluminum body casing which was designed by Neil Poulton that offers natural heat dissipation by providing 60% more surface area. They also have the capability to support workgroup environments for up to 50 users (15 at one time) while giving the network’s administrator the capability to set the security level for the user’s profiles, groups, public and guest users.
It appeals also to home users as well because of their ability to download files via BitTorrent without being connected to a computer plus it can be connected to gaming consoles such as a PS3, Xbox 360 or directly to your television set and play media without the use of a computer.
Both solutions also supports Apple’s Time Machine backup software and come with the LaCie Network Assistant for easy set up, back up and administration, Genie Backup Manager Pro for Windows and Intego Backup Manager Pro for Mac users. A USB drive can also be connected to increase security through scheduled backups and evem expand the storage capacity.
Both LaCie NAS solutions are now available with the d2 network going for $189.99 and the Big Disk going for $379.99
