Dual Core processor boosts drives' multi-tasking capacity

The Dual Core processor enables the TeraStation™ Pro 6 Bay to perform multiple tasks simultaneously with minimal performance degradation. Experience maximum network throughout while a replication task runs in the background, and fast search indexing and anti-virus scanning are occurring at the same time.

Business class features

The Buffalo TeraStation™ Pro 6 Bay is packed with business class features such as Active Directory support, Hot Swap drives, disk quota support, share level replication, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and USB 3.0 accessory support.

Data backup with replication

The backup replication allows a second TeraStation™ Pro 6 Bay unit to be a mirrored unit or spare drive. By replicating data on the second NAS, connected to the network via a LAN port, it improves reliability, fault tolerance, and accessibility.

Superior high-speed data transfer with SuperSpeed USB 3.0

The TeraStation™ Pro 6 Bay's improved CPU speed boosts data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps on a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection.

Remote Web Access

Remotely access digital content stored in the TeraStation™ Pro 6 Bay on your PC or Mac via a Web browser, or on your iPhone®, iPad®, Android smartphone or tablets via the WebAccess I app.

Built-in DNLA

The TeraStation™ Pro 6 Bay has a built-in media server to stream digital files to any DLNA™ compatible digital entertainment device.

Built-in BitTorrent

Download large files independently without having to power up your PC or laptop with the built-in BitTorrent™ client feature found in all Buffalo’s LinkStation™ and TeraStation™ NAS devices. The BitTorrent™ client frees your PC or laptop for other activities. A BitTorrent™ client is a programme that uses the BitTorrent™ protocol to manage large file downloads and uploads over the Internet.

Large cooling system

A large, controlled fan with a thermal sensor and high cooling capacity promotes better air flow over the hard dives. Advanced ventilation design reduces internal heat.

Eco-friendly, energy-saving

Features the PC Interlocking Power Management System which makes power saving effortless and the Schedule Power Management System which helps to reduce CO2 omissions and save up to 66% power. Scheduled shut down eliminates unnecessary access and reduces energy costs.

Active Directory

Active Directory provides simplified management for each TeraStation™ Pro Bay 6.

Front-loading Hot Swap hard drives

Six hot swap hard drive trays behind the lockable front panel for easy drive access and replacement.

Dual Ethernet ports

Dual Ethernet ports enabled for port trunking and load balancing.

Advanced RAID support

Supported RAID levels: 0, 1, 5, 6,10, 50, 51 and Standard (JBOD).

Reading USB data on Windows PC

The attached EXT3 Reader allows external USB data – connected to the PC via the USB ports – to be read on a Windows-based PC.

Hot Spare and mirroring for uninterrupted operations

Features Mirroring - a failover mechanism that provides reliability for uninterrupted operations.

Hot Spare function - enables automatic switch over to a spare drive during hard drive failure to ensure business continuity and uninterrupted operations.

Disk quota allocation

Disk quota (soft quota) prevents users or groups from consuming too much disk space by allocating them with the right amount of space.

Managing multiple TeraStations

NAS configuration tool allows settings to be exported to a file for easy, one-click deployment of multiple TeraStations™.

Network File System for wide user access

The Network File System (NFS) – mapped from UNIX – allows a wide range of users to access the drives.

Gigabit Ethernet ports with Jumbo Frame

10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports and Jumbo Frame enabled for higher speed transfer and optimal network performance.
