LaCie (http://www.lacie.com) has announced a dual-disk Gigabit network storage and media server — the LaCie Network Space MAX, design by Neil Poulton. It allows users to store and share their most important files throughout the home with complete data security, according to Patrick Salin, Digital Home Business Unit Manager, LaCie.
The Network Space MAX includes two large-capacity hard drives that can be configured for maximum security (RAID 1) or maximum capacity (RAID 0). If protecting your data is a priority, the RAID 1 mode will ensure automatic disk mirroring– meaning all files will be copied onto each of the disks. If one drive fails, data won’t be lost.
LaCie Network Assistant software helps you set up the product, and a dashboard allows you to easily manage files, backups, private accounts, and download torrents. Additionally, with the Network Space MAX, the files stored on the hard drive are fully accessible outside your home from any connected computer using the remote access service.
The Network Space MAX features a media server, so you can stream files to any connected computer or any UPnP/DLNA compliant device (such as a PlayStation 3 or Xbox). Computers with iTunes installed can also stream the music stored on the Network Space MAX.
The LaCie Network Space MAX starts in 2TB capacity through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner and LaCie Reseller+ starting at US$279.99.
