Product Description

The LaCie 2TB Ethernet Disk will add more storage space to your office's network for sharing important files, backing up critical data, and archiving your folders. Featuring advanced file-sharing technology, it frees file servers by providing independent, standalone storage accessible to any computer on the network. The LaCie Ethernet Disk is available with Gigabit Ethernet interface connection. To meet your needs for simplified data management and easy integration of hardware into your existing system, you can effortlessly set-up the LaCie Ethernet Disk without any technical expertise. With simple installation, it can be administered and controlled without difficulty via any web browser, and can even be accessed remotely via the web (HTTP or FTP). Use the web-based management tool, which comes in multiple languages, for easy configuration. If your department, independent agency, franchise, or office team is experiencing growing storage needs, the LaCie Ethernet Disk offers a perfect shared hard drive solution. When the maximum native capacity of the Ethernet Disk is reached, use the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports to extend capacity, back up on external USB drives, or daisy-chain with other drives.

The LaCie Ethernet Disk will help you store, back up and share files among as many as 25 users simultaneously. The LaCie Ethernet  Disk's sturdy aluminum design allows it to be used as a stand-alone device that, when positioned on the desktop, can support a monitor weighing as much as 40 lbs. It can also be stacked or integrated into 19-inch racks. Box Contents: LaCie Ethernet Disk, CD including Ethernet Agent & User Manual, LaCie feet for stand-alone use, Ethernet cable, Power cords and power plugs.

Added Security from Data Backup
The Ethernet Disk is compatible with Apple Time Machine and comes with Intego Backup Manager Pro (Mac) and Genie Backup Manager Pro (Windows). Both programs provide complete computer recovery for your workstation. In addition, the Ethernet Disk features a built-in motor that ensures your local data is backed up either over the network--to another NAS device--or locally--to a Direct Attached Storage device that's connectable through any of the device's four high-speed USB expansion ports.

Increased Storage for Growing Businesses
If your office or work group is experiencing growing storage needs, the Ethernet Disk offers a perfect shared-hard-drive solution, allowing you to add storage capacity as your business grows. This Ethernet Disk has a native capacity of 2 TB.

Size: 2 TB
I had this NAS dropped on my lap by my employers and told to use it for data backup, simple enough. Configuration was actually very simple though being limited in what you have access to is extremely annoying (You can't turn the network card off of auto-negotiate for example). My main problem with it is how painfully slow it is. Backing up 1.13 Tb off of my SAN took a whooping 4 days to complete even though everything is hooked up over a Gigabyte backbone in the same rack. After Googling the problem it seems that this is par for the course for this unit. In my opinion, seek other options. A 2TB external hard drive hooked up to a workstation would smoke the speed of this unit and for half the cost. STAY AWAY!

Very easy to set up, but no Rsync capabilities pretty much makes this a "dumb" network drive and useless. But if you only want a dumb ethernet disk, it's very nice and clean. Simple to set up with a nice GUI interface.

We bought this to have a place for our workstations to archive media, then we would copy it from the LaCie to external HDD for long term storage. The unit set up and integrated into our system quickly. When started sending data to it, we found the problem. Although the unit has USB ports for connecting external devices, and has a reduced XP OS, it CANNOT simply copy data to the drives. You must use the software included to create a data file usuable ONLY by the software. So if you want to restore data directly to your workstation, or if the unit goes down (which is why you archive it to begin with) you will not be able to recover your data. Even the LaCie tech support was surprised by this.

Although the unit was easy to setup and may work in your environment, I'm not sure it offers anything over a simple NAS to justify the cost.

Amazon accepted the return without a problem.
