LaCie demonstrates a new network storage server based on Microsoft Windows Home Server platform. This server leverages success of LaCie’s award winning 5big Network, which features five user-replaceable drives, Gigabit Ethernet, and data protection support for data integrity. Technology demo shows that by combining Microsoft and LaCie technologies on a single platform, small business users can enjoy a seamless interface to automatically back up computers to a single server. Server secures their backup both locally and remotely by automatically copying their critical data to cloud, using LaCie’s Wuala technology. “LaCie’s network server offers an exciting design and provides plenty of storage options with terabytes of capacity and the ability to back up data from local computers and to cloud-based services,” said Leslie McGuire of Microsoft. “We’re pleased to have LaCie join us as a Windows Home Server partner.” “Our aim with this technology demonstration is to show that by teaming with Microsoft and through our Wuala cloud storage technology, we can provide an enterprise-grade, data protection solution with both local backup and off-site replication in one low-cost, compact system,” said Erwan Girard.
