Storage specialist LaCie has 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.
LaCie explains, 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.
For users with a large media library, 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, adds LaCie.
Additionally, the Wireless Space is Time Machine compatible, so Mac users can use it as a target for their automatic backups. For PC users, LaCie offers Genie Timeline Software for scheduled backups.
The Wireless Space is designed by one of LaCie's favourite designers Neil Poulton, and offers a sleek, polished black casing, which promises natural heat dissipation and near-silent operation.
"There are a variety of network devices you need to buy to have a full solution to connect your computers, share media and back up your files," said Julien Ott, Product Manager for Network Attached Storage, LaCie.
"LaCie is thrilled to bring Wi-Fi connectivity to the Wireless Space and deliver a truly all-in-one solution for the varying different network needs of any home."
The LaCie Wireless Space is available in 1TB and 2TB capacities through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner and LaCie Reseller+ starting at a SRP of £179.90. Visit www.lacie.com/uk for more details.
