With room enough to store up to 96TB of data in an accessible, expandable, reliable 12-disk storage solution, the LaCie 12big Rack Network provides a way to get both block and network-attached storage in just one box. It supports six RAID modes (RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 50), offers full redundancy on almost all hardware elements, and features dual 1 Gb/s Ethernet connections. With many customizable features, including support for 500+ users, this high-powered, full-featured storage solution is the ideal addition to any corporate network or branch office. With many customizable features, including support for 500+ users, this high-powered, full-featured storage solution is the ideal addition to any corporate network or branch office. With its hardware RAID controller, its Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor, server-class motherboard, and enterprise class drives, it successfully stores and protects your business-critical data. In addition, we test every single enclosure for 24 hours prior to being shipped, so you can be assured that you're receiving the highest quality storage, helping your data stay safe and secure. The LaCie 12big Rack Network can serve as a file or block sharing appliance. It supports both SMB and NFS file protocols, it can be used as an iSCSI target. With its two Ethernet ports and highest-grade components, it can successfully share critical files while also successfully functioning as a dedicated, direct-attached storage device that can be part of an IP SAN or an iSCSI target for applications that demand high bandwidth. Powered by a hardware RAID controller that pulls away resource-demanding RAID parity calculations from the processor, it can easily scale up without affecting performance and still guarantee the same level of data protection. If you run short on storage, just connect up to three 12big Rack Serials through the Mini SAS expansion port to instantly quadruple the number of drives. The XOR engine can manage the extra RAID calculations, and the Xeon processor can successfully handle the increasing number of file serving requests, guaranteeing a successful scaleup in storage and users without a drop in performance.
