Storage device maker LaCie will exhibit two of its latest products: the 5big NAS Pro and 2big NAS. The five-bay network-attached storage (NAS) unit sports a dual-core 2.13-GHz Intel 64-bit Atom processor and 4 GB of RAM. It also boasts dual LAN and link aggregation for optimized network speeds. The 5big NAS Pro enables users to collaborate easily, thanks to a single interface for network/cloud storage and remote access. Data remains secure, owing to client-side cloud encryption and SimplyRAID. (LaCie, in fact, owns its cloud storage, Wuala.)
The company's more affordable two-bay device ships with an ARM 2-GHz CPU and 256 MB of RAM. Like its sibling, the 2big NAS comes with a comprehensive (and automated) backup system for all your computers. Both devices are available now, and pricing starts at $529 and $179, respectively.
