Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage and wireless networking solutions, today announced the launch of the TeraStation family of network storage solutions in the UK. Consisting of TeraStation Duo, 4 bay, 6 bay and 8 bay, the TeraStation family is equipped with the powerful Intel® Atom™ D510 Dual-Core Processor, providing exceptional performance during file transfers and everyday NAS functions. The unveiled TeraStation family combines the incredible power of the Intel Dual-Core Atom with Buffalo’s comprehensive and feature-rich SMB software suite.
"Buffalo has once again proven to be the market leader, offering the most complete SMB storage line-up.," said Paul Hudson, Sales Director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology. "We are pleased to offer yet another game changer, not only for small businesses but now also the medium enterprise. At Buffalo we continue to pride ourselves on IT solutions that are easy to deploy, run and manage."
The refreshed product line incorporates new features such as High Speed Data Transfer with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for adopters who require faster data transfer speeds. The drives also feature four USB ports (2 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0) for greater flexibility.
SMB IT professionals today are presented with the challenge of implementing backup and disaster recovery solutions that meet, if not exceed their companies’ ever increasing demand for reliable storage.
The TeraStation also incorporates Active Directory Support which simplifies the management of data. The Schedule Power Management System for flexible power management allows users to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 66%.
For users on the move, the WebAccess function enables users to remotely access content stored on the TeraStation from anywhere in the world, in real time, via PC, Mac, iPhone or Android phone. The Buffalo TeraStation includes NovaBACKUP® Business Essentials with 10 licenses which protects data on servers locally or online. Regardless of theft, user error or hardware failure, NovaBACKUP® protects and restores your data.
The TeraStation 8 bay features eight populated bays of storage shipping in RAID 6 with support for RAID 0/1/5/10 modes as well. The TeraStation 8 bay will be available in April 2011.
The TeraStation 6 bay, network attached storage solution supports USB 3.0 accessories, ships in RAID 6 and will be available in April 2011.
