Enter the LaCie 2big NAS. ith speed, reliability, and complete usability, it's the go-to solution for small business network storage needs.

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.

LaCie 2big NAS
Easy Setup, Seamless Integration

Simply connect the product and install the Wuala client, and instantly you have 100GB of free trial online 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.

LaCie 2big NAS

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 5big. Make your data as mobile as your employees are (but constantly available)

Fast Professional Collaboration

LaCie 2big NAS
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.

LaCie 2big NAS
Work Smarter, Work Together

It also lets you automatically sync files between the cloud and one or many of your company's computers, ensuring everyone's looking at the most current versions. Sync makes sure that an employee in sales, for example, won't use an outdated price list, or be unable to pull up marketing collateral during a sales pitch.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.

LaCie 2big NAS
Better External File Sharing

What's more, instead of using FTP or email to share files with external clients, simply give them the folder's secret link on Wuala. They can download files directly through any browser without needing to install the Wuala client or 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.

LaCie 2big NAS
Capacity (RAID 0) mode.


LaCie 2big NAS
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.

LaCie 2big NAS
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. While competing cloud storage services could read your files due to employee wrongdoing or court order, files stored on Wuala are solely accessible by your Wuala administrator. Wuala also employs bank-level security to protect files stored on its servers.

Complete Backup Solution

Everything you Need, in the Box

The LaCie 5big 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.

LaCie 2big NAS
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.

LaCie 2big NAS
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

LaCie 2big NAS
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.

LaCie 2big NAS
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.

LaCie 2big NAS
iSCSI Target

You can set up an iSCSI target of your LaCie 2big and mount it as a local disk on your computer in the same way that external hard drives are mounted when connecting to your PC/Mac. An iSCSI connection will bring you performance and flexibility for professional applications, such as backup or virtualization.

Simplify your office's printing scheme by connecting a compatible printer to the LaCie 2big's USB port. Instantly your employees will be able to print from any computer on the network.

We purchased this product to use as a network storage device for pictures/videos. The setup was very easy to do and so was setting up the shares. I am very happy with the product and if we need another storage device of this size, i know that i will be getting another one of these.

This NAS carries a higher price tag than other units I have used but it is by far my favorite. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to things like this! If you are considering this for an office environment dont hesitate as it is rock solid and easy to configure.

I had purchased 2 of these for the office. One to serve as a network file server and the other for off-site backup. When they arrived and I started setting them up I saw how easy they are to setup on a network. Then finding that the file server one will automatically backup to the off-site drive I couldn't help but fall in love with them. I got back online and ordered one for myself for home. That one replaced an older LaCie 2Big USB drive that was in a large gun safe and attached to an Airport Extreme which did not play nice with my Linux machines. I can easily connect to it from Windows, Mac and Linux and they all backup to it.

Take it from someone who has had his home burglarized and all my computers stolen. The only thing that saved my files and thousands of pictures and music files was my backup drives. Backup, backup, backup! This will do it.

I chose this product because of past experience with this brand. I have just started using it and it is preforming as expected. I don't like the vague and sparse directions - black and white drawings with no explanations.

Replaced an Iomega that had failed. I've had several of those. This has a much easier interface to manage and seems to be more robust.

Works just like described. The unit looks very nice and at times can make noise, but it does not bother me. The Blue light will light up a room at night, but it can be turned off in the configuration.

I manage the IT at a small accounting business. We were looking for something to store our weekly backups, and this looked like a good solution. It's got heaps of space and I can run it at Raid 1 for extra security. I run weekly backups onto this and then transfer the backups to tape once a month.
