LaCie Announces 5big Office Series – Essential Backup Solutions for Small Offices
31 January 2012
Today LaCie announced the 5big Office Series, its latest five-bay network attached storage solutions. With easy setup, collaboration and total data protection, the 5big Office Series is a solid long-term investment for any small businesses. They feature the industry-trusted Windows® Server operating systems and a powerful Intel® Atom™ processor.
POWERED BY WINDOWSThe 5big Office Series, powered by Windows Home Server 2011, is perfect for backing up as many as 10 PCs. The 5big Office+, powered by Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, backs up as many as 25. Get up and running in a flash on either system with a straightforward setup process and a familiar Windows environment. The 5big Office Series helps business groups collaborate like no comparable NAS.
NO-COMPROMISE HARDWAREWith the 5big Office Series, LaCie made no compromise on hardware. The 1.6GHz Intel® 64-bit Atom™ processor and 2GB of RAM enables maximum simultaneous data access and backups for all employees. Additionally, the 5big Office Series' efficient cooling system protects internal components, ensuring long-term reliability.
OPTIMIZED DATA USAGEThe single-drive version allows users to add additional drives, as needed, for up to 10TB of total capacity. It reduces the initial investment and assures a long-term solution. What's more, its PC backup data deduplication only backs up a single instance of redundant data. This optimizes storage space as well as increases backup speed.
5BIG OFFICE+: INTEGRATE MULTIPLE OFFICESThe 5big Office+ offers all the features of the 5big Office, but brings powerful tools – including DFS-R/N – for integration with offsite servers. IT managers can centralize and consolidate data, even when it's spread across multiple geographic locations. The 5big Office+ also features Windows domain/Active Directory support, a faster dual-core processor, dual Ethernet links, and can back up more PCs.
