LaCie have announced two new storage servers intended for small workgroups. The LaCie Big Disk Network and d2 Network can each support up to 50 users (15 simultaneously), with the Big Disk having dual RAID 0 drives for up to 4TBs capacity, while the d2 Network has 1.5TB of its own storage plus an eSATA port for adding external high-speed drives.
If any of you can actually use 32TB of RAID storage, I'll be amazed. Users can combine either two or four LaCie 4big Quadras, which feature four hot-swappable disks, seven RAID modes including RAID0 and RAID5, and storage up to 32TB at 700Mb/s transfer speeds.
LaCie is rolling out a new external hard drive called the LaCinema Classic, offering media lovers a simple way to consume their movies, music and photos - through their TV. All the user has to do is hook the device up to their computer via USB, copy files onto the Classic and then hook it up to their TV via composite or HDMI.
LaCie have announced a new version of their 1U 19-inch rack-mounted Ethernet Disk, which the company claims is compatible with Apple's Time Machine backup system. The new LaCie Ethernet Disk has 6TB of storage and supports Active Directories, for a total of 100 users with customizable access rights to different shares and up to 25 concurrent users.
Everyone is always talking about the "cloud" and syncing up your data across multiple platforms so that it is accessible from anywhere. LaCie has obviously listened to this cloud talk and have come out with the Internet Space, which looks nice and provides a valuable function at the same time.
LaCie announced their LaCinema Rugged hard drive today that's meant for mostly multimedia. It makes it easy to keep your media collection with you at all times whether at home or while out and about.
