Any Place. Any User. Single Interface.

Introducing the True Hybrid Cloud
With the LaCie 2big NAS running NAS OS 3, you get a true hybrid cloud: integrated network-attached and secure cloud storage. LaCie is alone in the market having its own cloud storage product, Wuala. As a result, LaCie is uniquely positioned to deliver a seamless hybrid cloud solution.
Easy Setup,
Seamless Integration

Simply connect the product and install the Wuala client, and instantly you have 100GB of free trial Wuala Business cloud storage*. Wuala file system integration means both network and cloud storage mounts on your computer just like an external hard drive. So you can easily drag and drop files onto the LaCie 2big or the cloud. It also lets you access and work on files wherever you go – and even edit files with productivity software – without needing to download them.

Complete Compatibility
Not only does Wuala work on Windows®, Mac®, and Linux, but also on mobile devices (iOS™ and Android™). Just install the Wuala app on your smart phone or tablet to gain access to any file stored on your LaCie 2big. Make your data as mobile as your employees are (but constantly available).

Fast Professional Collaboration

Faster Internal File Sharing
Boost your business productivity with up to 100MB/s** transfer speeds. The LaCie 2big is powered by a 2GHz processor and a highly efficient file system. This combination optimizes file transfers between employees while ensuring full performance even with simultaneous transfers.
Work Smarter, Work Together
Using Wuala, you can set up automatic files syncs between computers and the NAS or computers and the cloud, ensuring everyone’s looking at the most current version of files. Sync makes sure that an employee in sales, for example, won't use an outdated price list, or be unable to pull up marketing collateral during a sales pitch. Since your Wuala Business users have access to a shared pool of storage, it's easy to keep everyone on the same page.

Better External File Sharing
What's more, instead of using FTP or email to share files with external clients, simply provide them access to LaCie 2big’s browser-based file explorer. They can download files directly without needing to be granted access to your company's network. No file size restrictions means you can share large files easier than ever.

Formidable Data Security. Simplified.

(RAID 0)

(RAID 1)

RAID for Bulletproof
Hardware Security

The LaCie 2big features RAID 1, which provides disk-failure proof, hardware-level data protection. If a single disk fails, you can replace it without turning off your appliance. Just swap in a new one without losing a single byte of data. Whatever the challenge, zero data loss, zero work interruption.
Minimal Investment,
Maximum Scalability

You can even opt for the diskless model*** and simply add more storage capacity as your business grows. Automatic RAID expansion means that it's easy to add higher capacity disks without losing your data. These features let you reduce your initial investment while ensuring a long-term solution.

Industry-Best Cloud Security
Files stored on the cloud are encrypted even before they leave your computer. So no one, not even a LaCie employee, could ever access them. On the other hand, competing cloud storage services could read your files due to employee wrongdoing or court order. Wuala also employs bank-level security to protect files stored on its servers.

Complete Backup Solution

Everything you Need, in the Box
The LaCie 2big comes with everything you need to back up your office's computers. It includes three client licenses for Genie® Backup Manager Pro™ for Windows and three licenses for Intego® Backup Manager Pro™ for Mac (additional licenses can be purchased online). Install the included software on computers to be backed up, or simply use Time Machine® or Windows Backup.
Offsite Backup for Ultra Security
You can even add offsite backup to your data protection strategy. Wuala lets you create backup jobs that back up a computer's folder onto the cloud. An employee accidentally deletes an important file or his hard drive fails? Regardless of your backup method – 3rd party software or Wuala – restore lost files in seconds and get employees back on track.

Automated NAS Backup
The LaCie 2big NAS also takes the hassle and potential for human error out of backing itself up. You can replicate your LaCie 2big's storage onto an attached USB/eSATA hard drive, or vice-versa. Create automatic backup jobs tailored to each of your attached devices. You can also use your NAS to back up another NAS, whether it's on the local network or remote▴. Even configure a nightly backup of your NAS onto a backup server in a completely different building.

Advanced Features for Small Business

Dual Cooling for Long-Term Reliability
The LaCie 2big's advanced dual cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. Its solid-aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently. In addition, its thermo-regulated fan turns on and off according to internal temperature. It cools the components while reducing electricity usage.
Energy-Saving Innovations
The LaCie 2big helps you to reduce power consumption by letting you control its energy usage. In eco mode it uses one-tenth the energy of the previous generation of LaCie NAS. Without reducing employee access to data. You can also schedule shut down/restart depending on the day of the week.

Get Ready for Virtualization
Support for multiple iSCSI initiators and targets brings dramatic flexibility to your virtualization scheme, including those that integrate Citrix®, VMware® or Hyper-V® servers. Combine your storage into data center arrays, while letting host computers mount network storage as if it were direct-attached disks. Even host multiple virtual machines using several iSCSI targets.
Easy Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Prevent downtime by keeping a close eye on your hardware. The LaCie 2big now features hardware monitoring that alerts you in real-time of potential issues with the fan, CPU, and RAM. It also features SMART hard disk diagnostics. Stay on top of your data security with hardware status email alerts.
