Robust RAID 5 capability

Buffalo TeraStation™ III Rackmount is a larger capacity NAS device with robust RAID 5 capability. Redundancy of four separate hard drives in RAID 5 or RAID 1 modes ensures data security even during hard drive failure.

Hot Swap protection against data loss

The TeraStation™ III is equipped with Hot Swap functionality. Should a hard drive fail, the NAS device will automatically power down the faulty drive and allow it to be safely removed and replaced without causing any downtime or data loss.

Data backup with replication 

The replication function improves reliability, fault tolerance and accessibility as it allows a second TeraStation™ to be connected via a LAN port and for data to be replicated. The mirrored or replicated unit would be used as spare.


High-speed data transfer

TeraStation™ III Rackmount boasts a vastly improved CPU speed and supports faster data transfer rates of up to 69MB per second.
