Five operating modes for maximum flexibility

Robust RAID 5 capability

Buffalo TeraStation™ III 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.

Hop Swap protection against data loss

The TeraStation™ III comes with Hot Swap functionality which means if a hard drive fails, it will automatically power down the faulty drive so you can safely remove and replace it without losing any data or experiencing any down time.

Data backup with replication

The replication function allows a second TeraStation™ to be connected via a LAN port and for data to be replicated, enabling it to become a spare drive. Having a spare or mirrored unit improves reliability, fault tolerance and accessibility, and promotes quick recovery from any hard drive failure.

High-speed data transfer

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

Quick and easy setup

Installing and managing the TeraStation™ III is quick and easy due to the clear LCD status display and intuitive Web interface.

Dual Ethernet ports

Dual Ethernet ports enable port trunking and load balancing.

RAID Support

Five operating modes: RAID 0, 1, 5,10 and Standard - for maximum flexibility.

Hot Spare and Mirroring
