CES 2013: LaCie 5big NAS Pro Bumps Small Biz Storage Up to USB 3.0

The inevitable march to USB 3.0 in Network Attached Storage has taken some time – more than is necessary, frankly – but it’s coming at last. LaCie’s 5big NAS Pro is (almost) here and is packing SuperSpeed USB.

Starting at $529 for the diskless edition, the model is refreshed with an all-new Intel platform, consisting of a 2.12 dual-core Intel Atom processor, 4 GB RAM, twin Gigabit Ethernet sockets and the aforementioned USB 3.0 bump. Unlike new consumer NAS devices from ASUSTOR and QNAP, there’s no HDMI out – this is strictly business.

That said, you will find integrated cloud storage from Wuala, RAID 5, 5+spare, 1 or 0 support and LaCie’s own NAS OS 3. That goggle-eyed chassis holds 5 drives too, offering plenty of expansion – no matter how large your office.

The LaCie 5big NAS Pro is available this quarter in 0TB, 10TB and 20TB capacities.
