External drive supplier LaCie has upgraded its NAS products with RAID-protected capacities up to 10TB and multimedia streaming, increasing viability for both home users and small businesses. The Ethernet-connected 2big Network model has two disk bays supporting up to 4TB of RAID-0 and -1 protected capacity. It has Active …
What's so new about this? QNAP for example has had this for almost a year, and at this moment already offers a 6-bay and 8-bay model supporting 12 and 16 TB respectively.
I thought the article would have read that LACIE *finally* introduces 10TB model....
And I don't think that you'll get any RAID protection if you want 10TB, since that is just 5x2TB in JBOD configuration (linear volume).
First of it's class?
"Its bigger relation is the 5-bay 5big Network, a desktop or floor box, offering up to 10TB of file storage with hot-swap drives. LaCie says this is a first for products of this class"
Unless they are referring to 5Bay NASs, which would be churlish, then I think Netgear would like to have a word with them - the readyNAS Pro is a six drive device that supports RAID0/1/5/10 and I think 6, and also has their own Raid system that allows hot swapping and hot expansion, iSCSI and SMB/NFS etc...
Works pretty well, inciedentally.
Well they would say that..
offering up to 10TB of file storage with hot-swap drives. LaCie says this is a first for products of this class.
So that means that the QNAP 509 is in a different class?? I wouldn't have thought so...
