LaCie B Disk d2 Network

LaCie early today rolled out network-attached storage (NAS) versions of two of its most familiar external hard drives. The single-disk d2 Network and dual-disk Big Disk Network both get gigabit Ethernet connections that let them share their storage on a local network. They're officially compatible with Mac OS X Leopard's Time Machine backups and have built-in servers to work independently of computers, including their own BitTorrent managers, media streaming through DLNA- and UPnP-compatible devices, and iTunes hosting.

Either is rack-mountable. The d2 Network comes in 500GB, 1TB and 1.5TB versions with prices ranging from $190 to $300; despite its limited storage, it comes with an eSATA input to attach another external hard drive if space runs low. The Big Disk Network lacks the eSATA jack but has either 2TB ($380) or 3TB ($500) of storage in a RAID 0 stripe. Both NAS drives should be available today.
