LaCie Delivers 2TB Network Storage For Home and Small Office Use
* Massive 2TB capacity in a single solution
* Centrally store and share files over a network
* Stream photos, music and videos
* Full support for Windows, Mac OS and Linux
PORTLAND, OR (May 2007) – Today LaCie announced it has boosted capacity of
its Ethernet Big Disk to a massive 2TB in a compact 2x7x11″ solution. It’s
perfect for centrally storing and sharing files over a network between
Windows, Mac OS and Linux machines. Or keep an easily searchable digital
library of up to 2,000 movies, music or photos and stream to a TV or other
media device. A quick and simple web user interface will have even novice
users up and running in minutes on any wired or wireless network.
“The LaCie Ethernet Big Disk with new 2TB capacity is the largest network
storage solution available for small office/home office customers,” said
Marie Renouard, LaCie Product Manager. “No other solution on the market
offers such large capacity in a single, compact device for easily storing
your personal digital library.”
With its high-speed processor and optional jumbo frame support, the LaCie
Ethernet Big Disk offers fast data transfer rates on the network. It can be
used as a shared central repository over Ethernet or as a personal hard
drive off-network over USB. The second USB port can be used to expand
capacity over the network by connecting an additional hard drive.
When connected to a home network, the LaCie Ethernet Big Disk can stream
multimedia content to UPnP-compatible AV adapters. Families can then
simultaneously listen to stored music and play movies on a networked
theater system in the living room.* Simply turn on the MediaServer option
during installation to automatically organize music, photos and video files
for use with Apple iTunes or other media players.
The LaCie Ethernet Big Disk 2TB is available end of May at the suggested
retail price of $1,099. The 1TB model is currently available via our
specialized online and retail dealer network, or through LaCie direct.
Disks ship with LaCie’s IP Configurator and 1-Click Backup Software for
Mac/Windows, as well as all cables needed for immediate use. Product
