TeraStation™ 1000 Series
AUSTIN, TX – September 25, 2014 – Buffalo Americas, a leading provider of external storage, network attached storage and networking solutions, today announced the launch of the TeraStation™ 1000 Series, an entry level network attached storage (NAS) product line for small businesses and home office users. The latest Buffalo NAS series provides professionals with industry-leading performance and business-class features, all at an attractive price point. The TeraStation 1000 series is comprised of the TeraStation 1200 2-drive desktop, the TeraStation 1400 4-drive desktop and the TeraStation 1400r 4-drive rack mountable unit.
Businesses of all sizes are experiencing a growing need for high-performance data management solutions. Larger companies tend to satisfy data storage requirements through third-party cloud providers or expensive in-house servers. In contrast, home office users and small business professionals often lack the resources necessary to invest in costly data management services or infrastructure for their storage needs. Recognizing this gap, Buffalo created the TeraStation 1000 Series of business-class NAS devices to give small business professionals and power users the tools they require at an affordable cost.
"Buffalo prides itself on building high performance storage and networking solutions for budget conscious professionals and businesses," said Brian Verenkoff, director of product management, Buffalo Americas, Inc. "We are pleased to present this user demographic with an entry level NAS option that addresses all of their storage needs and more."
TeraStation 1200 2-Drive Desktop NAS Device
Available today, the TeraStation 1200 2-Drive NAS device ships in capacities of 2, 4, 6 and 8 TB. Built with simplicity in mind, the TeraStation 1200 is easy to set up and configure with customizable RAID data protection for advanced networks and business critical applications. This low cost professional NAS solution features a 1.2 GHz dual-issue ARM processor, offering exceptional performance during file transfers along with best-in-class read/write speeds. Quiet and compact, the TeraStation 1200 runs silently and occupies a small footprint, ideal for offices or work areas that are strapped for space. Additionally, TeraStation 1200 features 10 free licenses of NovaBACKUP Business Essentials, providing a complete, all-in-one data protection solution for Windows® PCs, storage servers, Exchange servers and SQL databases.
