LaCie 5big Network 2 RAID Storage Announced


LaCie announced a diskless version of the 5big Network 2, a 5-bay RAID storage server designed by Neil Poulton. This lower cost model allows the flexibility to scale storage by adding extra hard drives as needed. Pre-configured 5TB, 10TB and 15TB models are also available.

Users can migrate from zero to five disks without data loss — reducing initial investment while ensuring a long-term solution. The 5big Network 2 diskless model provides users with flexibility. They can leverage unused drives or purchase new drives based on availability and demand. It will automatically build the RAID mode accordingly. The 5big Network 2 also offers RAID modes 5 and 6, which provide automatic, hardware-level data protection. If a single disk fails, simply replace it without turning off the appliance or losing a single byte of data.
