terastation nas systemTERASTATION NAS SYSTEM

TeraStation 7000R runs on Buffalo's TeraStation NAS System, providing a host of business-class features from network file sharing and security to RAID management, remote access and more. Managing data, backups and data sharing in a production environment or larger business is made easy with this NAS operating system. Included on all Buffalo TeraStation devices, TeraStation NAS System simplifies your everyday data needs.

high performanceHIGH PERFORMANCE

TeraStation 7000R features the Intel Xeon quad core processor, providing exceptional performance during file transfers and everyday NAS functions. TeraStation 7000R runs many services simultaneously and the quad core processor enables the ability to focus on concurrent tasks with minimal performance degradation: experience maximum network throughput while multiple replication and backup jobs run in the background and remote users are accessing content.


Exclusive to the 96TB models HGST Ultrastar He6 helium-filled hard drives help to improve efficiency and enable system storage capacity expansion while maximizing storage space utilization for reduced total cost of ownership. Additionally, the Ultrastar He6 helium-filled drives run 30% quieter than typical enterprise HDDs.

data protection and backupDATA PROTECTION AND BACKUP

TeraStation 7000R is bundled with eleven licenses of NovaBACKUP Buffalo Edition (one server and ten workstations), providing a complete, all-in-one data protection solution for PCs and Windows® servers.

terastation 7000r client server backupAdditionally, TeraStation 7000R features Buffalo's replication technology providing easy and high performance data replication from one Buffalo NAS device to another Buffalo NAS device over the network or the Internet. This offers real-time synchronous replication of data, providing easy, continuous data protection in the event of data loss. If your system configuration includes data replication from one TeraStation 7000R unit to another, you can set up fail-over to automatically switch main operation over to the redundant TeraStation if the main unit ever becomes inaccessible. Within one minute, the backup TeraStation automatically assumes the role of the main TeraStation 7000R with no disruption and no IT intervention. Data can be continuously accessed without any notice of the fail-over.

remote file accessREMOTE FILE ACCESS

TeraStation 7000R offers multiple ways to remotely access and share your important data for enhanced collaboration and productivity. With WebAccess and FTP/SFTP servers, you can securely access and share files with anyone outside the local network. Trusted recipients can access selected files from anywhere over the Internet and with WebAccess files can also be accessed remotely from tablet and smartphone devices.

hot spare hard driveHOT SPARE HARD DRIVE

TeraStation 7000R allows for one of the hard drives in the array to be designated as a hot spare.  In the event of a hard drive failure, the hot spare hard drive will automatically be rebuilt with the information contained on the failed drive with seamless data accessibility to clients on the network.

storage virtualizationSTORAGE VIRTUALIZATION

Configure TeraStation 7000R as an iSCSI target to add affordable virtualized storage to your business network. Storage virtualization serves to decrease IT spending by maximizing the resources offered by modern servers while providing affordable server scalability and reliability. A virtualized environment removes a significant amount of server dependence, shifting the burden to the storage devices.
