LaCie 301354U 5big Network RAID

The 5big Network is the most complete five-bay RAID solution for small and medium workgroups or offices that need large storage and backup capacity, improved performance and advanced security. Offering capacities of up to 7.5TB* (7500GB) and a versatile hot-swap feature, the 5big Network supports seven RAID modes including RAID 5 and RAID 6 for more flexibility and superior data protection. Designed with the modern professional office in mind, the 5big Network is housed in a sleek and durable aluminum tower with five lockable, removable drive trays.

Its stackable design helps to save space and its browser-based access and management system allows administrators to quickly set up the 5big Network and allow multiple users to share, store, and access data without taxing the bandwidth of a central server. This solution additionally features Active Directory Support (ADS) for easy integration into Windows-based networks and a Wake-on-LAN function, indispensable features for IT managers. Compared to traditional four-disk RAID towers**, it uses 25 percent less energy, and its revolutionary, ultra-reliable cooling system is 37 percent quieter, despite the additional disk. The 5big Network's embedded technology, user benefit features and superior design make it an ideal addition to any workgroup.

Comments: *EN 1TB (Terabyte) = 1000GB. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 10–15% less).Capacity also varies depending upon RAID modes. In RAID 5/5+Spare/6, the capacity varies according to the number of disks (more capacity with 5 disks).
**LaCie's previous generation four-disk RAID solution.
