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 Sync makes sure that an employee in sales, for example, won't use an outdated price list, or be unable to pull up marketing collateral during a sales pitch.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.

LaCie 2big NAS
Centralize Printing

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.

First let me start with the positives. The unit is solid. It's like the tank of NAS devices. Feels like it will stand up to anything. Second, the design is very sleek and looks fantastic. The blue button on the front glows brightly and looks very cool. The problem is that the pleasing aesthetics don't make up for the terrible performance of this device.

I can't even begin to go into all of the issues I have had with this device, but here is a short list:
- It does not work well with Apple routers. Wish I knew this before I upgraded my home from NETGEAR routers to the Apple Airport and Airport Express. The silly thing is that the unit was connected wired - not wirelessly. Still, it would not show up on many devices because as I found out later it is not supported on Apple routers.
- After only six months of use the unit stopped working. After much back and forth with the company they sent me a replacement but wanted me to send back my unit to them first - with my hard drives in it?!? After finally getting them to understand that I would need to the unit AND my old drives to get my data recovered they shipped me a refurbished unit. That's when the real trouble started. Note I purchased mine straight from LaCie and was dealing with them directly.
- When Lacie finally shipped the unit they sent it by turtle mail or something because it took almost two weeks to arrive. Not exactly comforting when all of your files are inaccessible. Once it did arrive, it didn't work. Then, they started hounding me saying that the unit was delivered two weeks ago but they had not received the old one back and that if I didn't get it out ASAP they were going to bill my credit card.

This product is great if you want a home network solution, but if you want this to work with remote access, be prepared to have constant issues, and that was our primary reason for buying it.

The good: I use this as 1) a media server to play movies on my PS3/Xbox, 2) an online filing cabinet. Works great for both these purposes and my wife and I have no issues sharing documents and streaming movies from the product. Access is fast and haven't had issues with this. A tip: if you add movies to your Lacie and you want them to show up on your PS3, make sure you re-index. Which brings me to the annoying...

The annoying: The documentation for this device is horrible. No tips. Support sucks. No good forums on this device to google. So learning to index above took several hours when movies weren't showing up on my media server but were on the Lacie. Also, when software is updated so the menus change in the dashboard, instructions are not. So you'll refer back to instructions that are no longer relevant.

The bad: The iPhone app is horrible and remote web access is inconsistent. I've had a number of issues where our IP address has changed and remote access stopped working as a result. Easy fix, but could never get a straight answer from support on why this would happen. This product is advertised as for the non technie. I think I'm more technical than your average person (knowing how to get into routers, port forward, get into computers remotely, etc...), but certainly not a networking expert, so figuring this stuff out when things go wrong takes considerable time. I've spent countless hours port forwarding and troubleshooting to get the app to work. What is very frustrating is it worked great when it started up and for a few months after.

Good storage for the money, built like a brick, but wish it was less noisy - especially when idle. Makes me wonder how much electricity it is burning while on 24/7. Using the raid as a time machine backup for two macbook pros, and as a shared network drive for extra storage. Decent dashboard interface through the browser.

So far, I have only set this up on my network via Wifi, but it has done great! I still want to look into the remote access part, but I think that requires another seperate program, but not 100% on that since I haven't done it yet. As far as the NAS goes, it was easy to set up for the most part. The 'picture' instructions suck, but basically all you need to do is plug it in and put the disk in your primary computer. I also had to re-format one of the drives as it came up 'bad' at first. After the format, it was fine. I have mine set up in RAID 1, so I'm using it as a 3TB drive with a mirror. I was able to not only back up my entire Macbook, but I was then able to move several larger files/programs over and free up almost 80Gb's on my harddrive. This is all done via Wifi from anywhere in my house I want to be. The NAS sits in the back room and also works as a nice night-light when walking to the laundry room in the dark. I will try to update this review if anything goes wrong and also when I get around to the remote hookup. The primary reason for the 4 stars is the picture instructions really, truly suck. This is designed for multiple languages (it comes with power cords for just about any country in the world), but still, pictures???? And it's not even correct at that. But, I still like it and it has done exactly what I need.
