Today LaCie released an update to NAS OS 2 for its line of network-attached storage (NAS) devices. It features enhanced backup options and easy remote access capabilities for LaCie Network 2 products.
Support for NAS-to-NAS backup lets the LaCie NAS back up another compatible NAS. The LaCie NAS can even be backed up by another NAS, whether it's on the same network or via the Internet. This feature is helpful to create an offsite backup for data protection against theft, fires, floods and other natural disasters. Advanced options let the user encrypt or compress data as well as perform incremental backups to save space.
LACIE MYNAS EASY REMOTE ACCESS
With LaCie MyNAS the user can now access their NAS remotely, a process that takes only 30 seconds to set up. Just create a unique name for the network storage in the NAS dashboard, then access the device on the road with a simple, easy-to-remember web address: mynas.lacie.com/name. This means employees, partners or clients can securely access projects using a web browser or the free LaCie MyNAS iPhone/iPad app.
