The TeraStation 5600 and 5800, designed specifically for the data needs of SMB organisations, offer IT professionals an advanced level of data transfer performance, security and network flexibility usually only available with enterprise-class storage devices.
The new TeraStation 5600 and 5800 deliver exceptional performance during file transfer, powered by Intel® Atom™ D2700 dual core processors. The TeraStation 5000 NAS range offers scalable storage capabilities to customers with simultaneous iSCSI and Ethernet connectivity. Built in RAID and hot-swappable disks ensure reliability and data availability for both primary and backup data storage. For backup, the TS 5600 and TS 5800 offer scheduled backup, failover and replication capabilities and the devices also fully support Amazon S3 cloud storage and WebAccess for transferring data to online backup or cloud-based storage.
The new additions to the TeraStation 5000 range include a host of unique business support services designed specifically for the multi-functional IT requirements of SMBs.

The TeraStation 5000 range also includes 2GB of fast DDR3 memory, USB3.0 for high-speed data transfer, five USB points for flexible connectivity and ten licenses of NovaBACKUP Business Essentials.
Paul Hudson, Sales Director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology, says: “The high-end additions to our TeraStation 5000 family give SMBs a level of reliability and performance you would expect in an enterprise environment, but available to the channel at a small business price point. The networking and redundancy feature-set of the TeraStation 5000 more than meets the storage needs of SMBs. We also understand that IT managers need to deliver multiple functions from a single device and the unique USB3.0 and Surveillance Server capabilities we have built into these products offer IT Managers greater device utilisation than many other vendors can provide.”
