What makes the Buffalo TeraStation 5210 AND 5410 NAS suited for Business?

Choosing the right Buffalo NAS for 2017 - The TeraStation Series 5210DN, 3210DN and WSH5610DN 1 All businesses are impacted by growing data requirements.  10GbE effectively positions businesses to meet the challenge by eliminating traditional 1GbE data transfer bottlenecks.  Other 10GbE networking advantages to consider:

  • Consolidate network hardware devices reducing physical space required by legacy equipment
  • Increase energy efficiency and lower utility costs
  • Provide more scalability thanks to increased headroom for larger applications in the future and more bandwidth per user
  • Support larger applications while delivering more bandwidth per user

The TeraStation 5010 makes it simple with integrated support for leading cloud providers such as Amazon S3, Dropbox or Dropbox Business. This provides a way to backup your mission-critical data to an offsite backup tool.  Offsite backup adds an extra layer of protection against data loss due to environmental disasters or equipment problems at your primary location.

Many businesses/industries such as hospitals and legal firms have legal requirements preventing them from backing up data to public cloud services. Additionally businesses may want to create a private cloud for greater security or simply because the solution provides finite cost instead of recurring monthly public cloud backup fees. TeraStation 5010 includes data replication capabilities allowing users to create a private cloud backup scenario when connected to another TeraStation. Businesses can enable bi-directional replication so data from each TeraStation is stored offsite. More advanced scenarios could include replicating data in a round-robin type fashion or having a single TeraStation replicate key data to multiple branch office TeraStations simultaneously. Alternatively each branch office TeraStation could replicate back to a single TeraStation at the businesses primary facility.

TeraStation 5010 is an excellent iSCSI target for businesses needing additional network storage.  Used as an iSCSI target for virtualized systems TeraStation 5010 allows businesses to achieve affordable cost per terabyte network storage with excellent throughput speeds via native 10GbE connectivity.  Businesses will achieve increased return-on-investment on existing server infrastructure by migrating older less-frequently accessed data to the TeraStation creating valuable space on the server for more important tasks.
