LaCie Reveals New Windows Home Server with Up To 10 TB Storage


LaCie has announced the debut of its new WHS-powered server, the LaCie 5big Backup Server. Originally revealed at this year’s CES, the new server is designed for small businesses (or serious storage enthusiasts) to backup a network of PCs or Macs without needing I.T.’s  help. The server can support configurations that allow it to backup up to 10 PC and 25 Mac workstations simultaneously.

It also includes 5 hot-swappable hard disk drives with capacities up to 10 TB (you can order it with either five 1 TB drives or five 2 TB drives). And it’s scalable with USB and eSATA connections. The server runs Windows Home Server as its OS and uses Intel’s D410 single-core processor running at 1.6 GHz. Prices start at $1,199.99 (€1,239 in Europe) for the 5 TB option.

Engadget says the new server offers “vaguely HAL 9000esque styling” like all the other LaCie 5big devices…which really just makes it that much cooler.
