Complete Data Protection. Simplified.
Protection Against any Calamity, Including Human Error
Your business data are sensitive, and protecting them is paramount. The LaCie 5big secures your files at every point, taking human error out of the equation. It automates backups of your office's computers, from individual files – even open ones – to the entire system. Simply install Connector – the backup client software – on your office's computers, then the LaCie 5big does the rest. No further configuration required. What's more, support for incremental backups means that only changed or new files are backed up. Combine this with PC backup data deduplication, and you're truly getting the most out of your capacity.
Restore any File or Even an Entire System
With Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials, it's easy to restore a file or even a complete workstation operating system. Thanks to robust versioning management, you can prevent data loss in the case that an employee accidentally deletes an important file. You can even browse through all saved files and select the one you want to restore. What's more, if a workstation's hard drive fails, you can restore the entire system. A simple wizard helps you to create a reinstallation DVD or USB key. This lets you restore the damaged system to the exact state captured in the latest backup. Complete system restoration. Hassle-free.
No Data Loss. No Downtime.
The LaCie 5big supports secured RAID 1 and RAID 5 modes for automatic, hardware-level 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.
Distance Your Data From Threats
For an additional level of data protection, back up your data to an offsite location. Prevent local technical problems or acts of God from causing downtime with NAS-to-DAS backups. Simply set up automatic backups to a connected DAS, which you can then take away to a safe place. Or, eliminate the need for human intervention and automate this task with NAS-to-NAS backups. This lets you schedule frequent backups to another NAS located in another room or building. Going even further, the 5big Office integrates Wuala Business, LaCie's Secure Cloud Storage for SMB. So now you can back up your critical data to the cloud.
