The company showed off its new LaCie 5big NAS Pro (pictured), a NAS solution based on Intel's dual-core 2.13GHz processor and LaCie's NAS OS 3, which includes RAID capabilities. It features hybrid cloud technology that provides small business storage users with a single interface for both network and cloud storage and remote access. It lists starting at $549.00.
Also new is the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt Series, a five-disk device providing up to 20 TB of raw capacity and throughput speeds of up to 785 MB per second starting at $1,199.00. The company also unveiled the $299 LaCie Blade Runner limited edition hard drive with a custom-designed enclosure, a 4-TB drive and a USB 3.0 interface.
