2 and 4 bay storage solution combines NAS + iSCSI with IP surveillance capability
Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage and wireless networking solutions, is today announcing the latest addition to the TeraStation™ 5000 family. The devices are equipped with powerful Intel® Atom™ Dual-Core Processor D2550/4 threads, providing faster transfer of large files from multiple computers. Packed with business class features and advanced functionality, the TeraStation 5200 and 5400 can be used as NAS and iSCSI storage servers simultaneously making it suitable for SMBs (small to medium businesses) that require a multi-functional storage server.
The TeraStation 2-Bay (TS 5200) and 4-bay (TS 5400) offers a complete solution to meet the increasing data demands placed on SMBs. It offers a level of performance, flexibility, security and capacity usually only available in enterprise-class storage devices.
“Secure data storage is critical to any SMB” says Paul Hudson, Sales Director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology. “Our latest range to the TeraStation 5000 series has been designed to handle the demanding storage needs of SMBs, now with significantly higher performance levels coupled with a much more versatile operating system that scales with business needs and reduces the overall storage and back-up costs.”
For SMBs that require a reliable solution for demanding networks and business critical applications, both models have a RAID based NAS and iSCSI storage solution feature making it ideal for large networks and business critical applications. The flexibility and capability offered by this functionality makes it proficient at handling traditional NAS and iSCSI targets simultaneously with minimal performance degradation.
In addition to the powerful and versatile hardware, the Buffalo Software suite is specifically tailored to meet the demands of SMBs providing functions that support critical business applications such as the Buffalo surveillance server IP camera recording, built-in directly to the unit. With the Buffalo surveillance solution SMBs can record from their office using the IP camera and stream it directly to the TeraStation. Each TeraStation is capable of supporting and managing up to 10 IP cameras.
The total back-up design feature provides data protection and duplication of data from one TeraStation to another, with the capability to support cloud storage service for flexible operations. It has a faster and easy-to-use web user interface and 2GB of fast DDR3 memory installed. SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports enable the highest performance NAS to External device back up for those who demand the highest levels of data redundancy. Each solution also feature four USB ports (2 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0) for greater flexibility.
