Today, LaCie introduced its first network-attached storage solution to feature Wi-Fi. The LaCie Wireless Space can operate as a file or media server for multiple Mac and PC users from anywhere in the home.
Leveraging Wi-Fi technology, the Wireless Space can connect to your existing Wi-Fi network, allowing you to access files wirelessly throughout the home, and can serve as a central storage solution for all your backups. If you wish to increase your Wi-Fi performance, the Wireless Space can also act as a B/G/N access point, and even serve as a full-featured router.
The Wireless Space can also act as a media server. It?s compatible with UPnP/DLNA and iTunes, and you can stream music, movies and photos from a central location and play them on any device.
Additionally, the Wireless Space is Time Machine compatible, so Mac users can use it as a target for their automatic backups. LaCie also delivers Genie Timeline software for scheduled backups on the PC.
The LaCie Wireless Space is currently available in Europe in 1TB and 2TB capacities. Both models will be available in the US this October through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie Reseller+ starting at $229.99.
