LaCie is looking to keep your business connected, and more importantly, locked and loaded when it comes to storage. Today, the company announced its professional 5-bay RAID server is now available in a diskless model. Now, users can get all the benefits of the 5big Network 2, designed by Neil Poulton, but with the flexibility to scale their storage and security as they desire – making it an efficient investment for resourceful professionals and small businesses alike. The 5big Network 2 also offers RAID modes 5 and 6, which provide automatic, hardware-level data protection.
