LaCie Windows Home Server 5big Network Server

LaCie in collaboration with Microsoft has announced a new network storage server that is based on the Microsoft Windows Home Server Platform. The LaCie Windows Home Server 5big Network Server is geared towards the needs of small business owners and provides an interface for automatically backing-up computers to a single server. Features include the ability to backup and secure data both locally and remotely, and to automatically copy data to the cloud-based storage server by using LaCie's Wuala technology.

The new server is designed for optimum use with LaCie's 5big Network, which offers data protection support and five user-replaceable drives. Users can see the new product at CES 2010, with additional information said to be announced in the first quarter of this year.

    Bwahahaha!

    Ooh, LaCie's famously reliable hardware, coupled with Microsoft's famously reliable software? I am already in line not to buy this product!

    Your critical files are are about as safe as if they were stored on floppies in a steel filing cabinet covered with cutesy refrigerator magnets.
