TeraStation™ WSH5610DNS6

Reliable Data Storage with Hardware RAID – 6-Bay business NAS

TeraStation WSH5610DNS6 is a robust and reliable Network Attached Storage solution integrated with Windows Storage Server 2016 (pre-tested NAS-grade hard drives included). This specialized operating system helps with simple deployment and management of your growing storage demands to integrate seamlessly with your existing Windows-based environments. This device is the ideal solution for consolidating multiple file servers into a single solution that enables cost reduction while lowering the overhead on your existing servers for other workloads. Buffalo’s specially-designed solution runs the OS from a SSD of its own – thereby freeing the HDD array, in its entirety, for user data. Hardware RAID enables the WSH series to deliver outstanding performance unaffected by ‘heavy load’ operations, even during RAID re-building. WSH5610 comes with an independent RAID CPU, making it possible to protect your data with the more secure RAID 6 mode while keeping your data transactions fast and stable. The WSH5610DN comes with Windows Storage Server 2016 Standard Edition (unlimited users), providing every Windows advantage.

Hot-swap function increases data security

With the hot swap function, the TeraStation™ automatically switches off the defective hard disk even if one hard disk fails, so that it can be replaced safely without interrupting work or losing data.
