The LaCie 2big Network 2 is a 2-bay NAS, recommended for networks with up to 200 users. 2TB, 3TB and 4TB capacities are available as standard configurations, however users can swap out drives to meet changing needs. The manufacturer claims the 2big Network 2 will perform at 68MB/s, taking advantage of the built-in 1000Mbps Ethernet connection. As a RAID 0/1 device, users can hot-swap drives in case of disk failure. Everything is configurable via the device’s built-in web-based interface, eliminating the need for command line configuration. External drives can be connected via USB 2.0 or eSATA, allowing for backup through the 2big Network 2’s built-in copy system. Additional functionality includes an integrated BitTorrent client and an UPnP/DLNA media server.
