LaCie announces new digital storage solutions
LaCie (www.lacie.com) is rolling out three new digital storage solutions at this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The 5big Thunderbolt Series (pictured) -- which pricing starting at US$1,199 -- is designed to complement to a Thunderbolt-compatible computer for professional creative workflows. It boasts speeds up to 785MB/s and five-disk capacity up to 20TB.
The LaCie 5big NAS Pro -- powered by Intel’s dual-core 2.13GHz processor and LaCie’s NAS OS 3 -- is a solution for small business storage needs. Thanks to hybrid cloud technology, it lets users collaborate using a single interface for both network/cloud storage as well as remote access. It also lets admins control folder access on the cloud and on the NAS. All with complete data security. Pricing starts at $549.
The $299 LaCie Blade Runner -- imagined by designer Philippe Starck, combines a sharp, cage-like enclosure surrounded by an almost anthropomorphic, liquid metal interior. It sports a 4TB drive and USB 3.0 interface.
