LaCie Introduces 4big Rack Office For SMB Storage
Like fellow storage vendor QNAP, LaCie used Computex as a platform for unveiling a new storage offering specific to SMBs.
The Hillsboro, Oregon-based company took the wraps off its new 4big Rack Office solution, designed to provide data protection and secured data sharing for small businesses. The solution, which runs on an Intel 64-bit Atom processors and has 2 GB of RAM, comes equipped with a pre-configured RAID 5 array on four disks and automatic backup for up to 10 PCs and three Macs. LaCie said both in-office and cloud-based file sharing is supported, and, as an add-on, 4big Rack is offered with up to 100 GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage for three months.
What’s more, the new solution is powered by Windows Home Server 2011, so LaCie said setup should be fairly straightforward for any SMB familiar with the Windows environment.
