The 5big Backup Server comes in 5TB (5 x 1TB Drives) and 10TB editions (5 x 2TB Drives) and both come with 5 internal hard drive bays and have 4 USB and an eSATA connection for further expansion, although all 5 bays are filled from the off.

  • Media Streaming – Twonky Media Server provides its UPNC/UPnP/DNLA server

Its eco-friendly too, with the aluminum casing being recyclable, and energy efficient because of its power supply and low power hard drives.laciehomeserver
