Hybrid Cloud Solution

Hybrid cloud - A different approach to storage backup.

The hybrid cloud approach involves third-party public cloud services, where your information is backed up or replicated between a Buffalo TeraStation unit and an offsite public cloud solution provider, like Dropbox or Amazon. Our TeraStation™ WSS Series, which is powered by Windows® Storage Server 2012 R2 and provides seamless integration with Windows® systems, is another solution that helps users backup, secure, and conveniently access information. This device integrates with any Windows supported cloud service.

Implement a hybrid cloud backup strategy for added protection and cost savings

Many businesses are implementing hybrid cloud solutions that draw from the best of both worlds—public and private cloud. The hybrid cloud approach integrates third-party public cloud services with your existing NAS environment. Finding the right balance between the two can help you optimize costs, security, and control.

You determine what that right mix looks like, depending on business requirements. For example, with a hybrid cloud solution you could routinely back up your data all day on your NAS device at no cost, and then at the end of the day, make one large data update to your cloud account. Or, if you start running out of space on your cloud account and don’t want to purchase more, you can always prioritize what data stays on your NAS (sensitive data) versus what you put into the cloud (less sensitive data). This is flexibility that you currently don’t get with one or the other.

What’s important is that you work with a provider who understands your business and can help you plan for and implement the right hybrid strategy. Our different TeraStation solutions are ideally positioned to help you take advantage of both public and private cloud benefits.
