Buffalo Technology has launched its TeraStation family of network storage solutions in the UK. Paul Hudson, Sales Director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology, gave BCW a one-to-one overview of the new TeraStation Duo TeraStation family.

Consisting of the TeraStation Duo, 4-bay, 6-bay and 8-bay, the TeraStation family is equipped with the powerful Intel Atom D510 Dual-Core Processor, promising exceptional performance during file transfers and everyday NAS functions. The unveiled TeraStation family combines the power of the Intel Dual-Core Atom with Buffalo’s comprehensive and feature-rich SMB software suite.

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 data.
