Its convenient, web-based interface, the Dashboard, is user-friendly and provides easy access to powerful features. Wizards with presets make advanced tasks such as user management and NAS-to-NAS backups astonishingly easy. No IT degree required.
Mac, PC, Linux? No problem. The d2 Network 2 speaks all the necessary network languages.

Support for Active Directory means you can import existing users and groups with a click of the mouse. No more repetitive tasks.
Boost your business productivity with up to 68MB/s transfer speeds. Everyone in the office can share files quickly and easily, whether they are on a PC, Mac, or Linux system. Define whether a folder should be private or public within the company. For private folders, closely control access by setting user- or group-level permissions. It's surprisingly easy. Whatever your office's internal file sharing needs, the d2 Network 2 delivers fast and flexible accessibility.
In an increasingly mobile world, your employees need anywhere and anytime access to their files. LaCie MyNAS revolutionizes NAS remote access, delivering the simplest setup in the industry. Just name your network storage without leaving the Dashboard, and it's ready to be accessed from the road. All you need is an internet connection. From within a browser, employees can download, manage, and upload files remotely. They can even stream image and audio files. A free iPhone/iPad app gives them convenient, instant access to all your NAS' files and storage capacity right on your phone or tablet.
The d2 Network 2 is a simple solution to back up all your office's computers. It includes Genie Backup Manager Pro for Windows and Intego Backup Manager Pro for Mac. Install the included software on computers to be backed up, or simply use Time Machine or Windows 7 Backup. An employee accidentally deletes an important file or his hard drive fails? Restore it in seconds and get the employee back on track.
Take the hassle and potential for human error out of backing up your NAS. The Dashboard lets you replicate the contents of your d2 Network 2 onto an attached USB/eSATA hard drive. Or vice-versa. Create automatic backup jobs tailored to each of your attached devices. Backups can also be configured to start automatically each time a USB hard drive is connected to the d2 Network 2. You can also use your NAS to back up another NAS, whether it's on the local network or remote. Even configure a nightly backup of your NAS onto a backup server in a completely different building.
The d2 Network 2's advanced cooling system ensures long-term reliability by preventing overheating. Its solid-aluminum casing provides 60% more surface area, which diverts and dissipates heat more efficiently. Cooler components means a long-lasting investment.
Simplify your office's printing scheme by connecting a compatible printer to the d2 Network 2's USB port. Instantly your employees will be able to print from any computer on the network.
The LaCie d2 Network 2 helps you to reduce power consumption by letting you control its energy usage. You can schedule shut down/restart depending on the day of the week. So it's possible to configure your NAS to power on at 6:00am and off at 7:00pm on Monday through Friday, and stay off all weekend. It also supports wake on LAN protocol, so if your NAS is asleep, you can easily wake it up from your computer without needing to be physically next to the NAS. On top of that, its exclusive aluminum fanless heat sink design makes it your ecological partner.
