LONDON, UK (Wednesday 19th May, 2010) - LaCie today announced a dual-disk Gigabit network storage and media server - the LaCie Network Space MAX, design by Neil Poulton. Now, users can easily store and share their most important files throughout the home with complete data security.
The Network Space MAX includes two large-capacity hard drives that can be configured for maximum security (RAID 1) or maximum capacity (RAID 0). If protecting your data is a priority, the RAID 1 mode will ensure automatic disk mirroring - meaning all files will be copied onto each of the disks. If one drive fails, data will not be lost.
The Network Space MAX is designed for ultimate usability. LaCie Network Assistant software helps you set up the product within a few minutes. It provides the best user experience for quick detection and access to the Network Space MAX. LaCie's user-friendly dashboard allows you to easily manage files, backups, private accounts, and download torrents.
Additionally, with the Network Space MAX, the files stored on the hard drive are fully accessible outside your home from any connected computer using the remote access service.
"Even for networking beginners, LaCie Network hard drives offer a simple way to share one's media between multiple computers in the home," said Patrick Salin, LaCie Digital Home Business Unit Manager. "The RAID 1 capability of LaCie's Network Space MAX means users can be assured their valuable data is always safe and accessible."
The Network Space MAX features a media server, making it easy to stream files to any connected computer or any UPnPTM/DLNA® compliant device (such as a PlayStation®3 or Xbox®). Computers with iTunes® installed can also stream the music stored on the Network Space MAX.
The entry level LaCie Network Space MAX features a 2TB capacity and is available through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie Reseller+ starting at £249 (incl VAT). For more product information, visit www.lacie.com/uk.
