Buffalo Brings Storage to SMBs

AUSTIN, Texas -- Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking, storage and memory solutions today announced the TeraStation iSCSI and TeraStation iSCSI Rackmount, Buffalo's newest additions to its high-performance line of SMB-focused storage devices.

The new TeraStation iSCSI will be available in two styles and three capacity levels:

  • Pedestal: 1 TB (TS-I1.0TGL/R5), 2 TB (TS-I2.0TGL/R5) and 4 TB (TS-I4.0TGL/R5)
  • Rackmount: 1 TB (TS-RI1.0TGL/R5), 2 TB (TS-RI2.0TGL/R5) and 4 TB (TS-RI4.0TGL/R5).

iSCSI storage targets are gaining in popularity even with small to medium sized businesses. The iSCSI protocol transports simple SCSI storage commands over standard TCP/IP networks. As a result, the iSCSI targets give servers the illusion of being locally attached disks that are directly accessible by the OS. iSCSI targets can be located anywhere on the network. In addition, multiple iSCSI targets can be consolidated into one array, providing additional or more redundant storage configurations. This makes iSCSI the ideal solution for server backup or backup strategies involving remote locations.

iSCSI appliances such as Buffalo's new TeraStation iSCSI and TeraStation Rackmount iSCSI offer SMBs the ultimate in flexibility and security for protecting remote data. Buffalo's new iSCSI TeraStation storage devices allow organizations to experience the flexibility of iSCSI SAN technology and superior throughput performance for their storage needs with the added benefit of affordability previously reserved for consumer NAS devices.
