July 25, 2012 - PRLog -- [Singapore, July 2012] Multi – award winning* IT brand Buffalo™ is introducing its latest addition to the storage family in the form of a superior file and backup server. The TeraStation™ 5000 series (TS 5000) is specially tailored to cater to the needs of Small, Medium Businesses (SMB).

With a global market share of 18.6%, Buffalo™ is the leading Consumer Network Attached Storage (NAS) vendor in the world; units shipped - 500,000 units sold in 2010 (vs. 383,000 in 2009)^. Buffalo™ has held the lead for Consumer NAS products for six consecutive years since 2005^ with leading sales of NAS devices in Japan, Buffalo is a brand well reputed for ultra-fast speeds, high security, connectivity and reliability.

There is no lack of proof that the TS 5000 were created with SMBs in mind. Incorporating features that are unique to Buffalo™, the TS 5000 helps Business owners of SMBs easily manage and control data, achieve greater productivity, superior levels of security and increased span of information access and control for all users. The 5 models in the TS 5000 were created with business class attributes, and high quality parts that enable the TeraStation™ to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without compromising performance. The following are the key features of the TS 5000 series that sets it apart from its competitors:

Quick, easy setup and simplicity for SMB owners to manage and control data
Setup of the TeraStation™ 5000 series through an intuitive web interface is quick and simple, with minimal downtime to operation. Sensitive, important office data is automatically encrypted in the TS 5000 using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), a high standard of encryption initially used by the U.S. government, now used as a benchmark for global standards.

The new web interface for the TS5000 has been improved to feature 2 modes of management; Simple and Advanced. Business owners with little technical training can easily manage settings for the TS 5000 and configure the NAS to function effectively for the different users within the SMB. Managing permissions to access different file servers or commanding the TS 5000 series to execute different tasks are uncomplicated with the new TeraStation™ Web Interface’s clear layout. Shutting down the TS 5000 remotely takes 1 simple command as opposed to the 4 level process before which further empowers business owners with full control over their NAS set up in office environments.  

Raw power that minimises downtime and increase productivity levels
The TS 5000 incorporates the Intel Atom dual-core processor & DDR3 2GB that allows for the seamless, concurrent multi-tasking. With this updated technology, users can be performing different tasks securely, with fast performance while the TS 5000 perform indexing, replication, and back up tasks in the background.

Unique to Buffalo™, the TS 5000 is the only product in its class that can simultaneously act as both a NAS and IP SAN (Internet Protocol Storage Area Network Storage). Featuring the iSCSI (Internet Small Computer Systems Interface) Target Support Internet Protocol (IP), the TS 5000 empowers Business owners to easily allocate space within their NAS to effectively function as independent virtual servers for the SMBs different users; e.g.: Finance, Human Resource, Marketing departments etc... With the targeted support that the TS 5000 renders, managing space, data and control of permissions allows users within the SMB to seamlessly access information, yet function independently thus greatly increasing productivity levels.
Superior levels of data protection, security and accountability
No NAS device is perfect, but Buffalo™’s TeraStation™ 5000 series comes very close. The Failover feature, unique to Buffalo™ (in this product class), allows business owners to configure the TS 5000 such that your data is automatically backed-up to a second TeraStation™, and in the event the main TeraStation™ fails, it automatically commands the second TeraStation™ to take over as the main NAS device. SMBs can now experience “close-to-zero” downtime and have the full confidence that no data is lost in the event their TeraStation™ fails by activating Buffalo’s unique Failover feature for the TS 5000.

With the TS 5000’s SMB Log, business owners can easily track activities by all users assessing data within the company on the NAS. This increases accountability within SMB environments and empowers business owners with the knowledge of basically, “who has done what” in regards to accessing, modification or removal/addition of data to the NAS.

Access important data anywhere in the world (with internet access)
With Buffalo™ WebAccess™ private cloud feature, business owners can easily create a private cloud environment so that users can easily access information offsite. Available via two accessibility modes, SMB users can use their portable microcomputers (Windows® laptop, MacBook® etc...) and connect to “www.buffalonas.com/mydomainname” or with their Mobile smart devices via the WebAccess i™ application created by Buffalo™ (compatible with iOS®, Android® and Windows OS®). This configuration by business owners empowers users within SMBs with an increased span of access and full connectivity to important data, whenever and wherever they need it.

The TeraStation™ 5000 series was designed by Buffalo to empower SMBs with business class attributes and provide unparalleled levels of control for SMB owners. Features unique to Buffalo™‘s TS 5000 help SMB owners manage and coordinate access to important data to take control of your business and achieve greater productivity, superior levels of security and increased span of information access and control for all users.
