Buffalo Announces the TeraStation 5000 Series

High Performance NAS and iSCSI Storage with Available Video Surveillance Asset Management

AUSTIN, Texas - Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking and network and direct attached storage solutions, today announced the TeraStation(TM) 5000 series of high performance network storage solutions. Following last week's announcement of the enterprise-class TeraStation 7000 series, the 5000 series currently consists of the two-drive TeraStation 5200 and the four-drive TeraStation 5400. Equipped with the powerful Intel® Atom(TM) D2550 dual-core processor, the TeraStation 5000 series provides supercharged performance and offers an array of business class features including iSCSI, replication and failover support and SoleraTec(TM) Phoenix RSM(TM), a video surveillance asset management solution.

"By reducing the complexity and cost of traditional IP video surveillance storage and asset management, the TeraStation 5000 series eliminates many of the barriers businesses face when implementing and running IP-based surveillance," said Matt Dargis, senior director of sales at Buffalo Technology. "This launch proves once again our dedication to delivering high performance solutions that serve the needs of our customers and our commitment to the SMB market."

Every day, professionals in the SMB market are challenged to provide high performing, cost effective backup and disaster recovery solutions that can address ever changing file serving and capacity needs. The TeraStation 5000 series is the next step for Buffalo's line of business class storage servers with an updated user interface that provides simplified management, optimized resource utilization for faster response times, and true disaster recovery protection. The TeraStation 5000 series is a business-class scalable NAS and iSCSI storage for businesses requiring a reliable RAID-based network storage solution. It runs many services simultaneously and the dynamic combination of the dual-core 1.86 GHz processor and 2 GB DDR3 RAM enables the acute ability to focus on concurrent tasks with minimal performance degradation: experience maximum network throughput while a replication job runs in the background, surveillance video is recording from multiple IP-based cameras and remote users are accessing content. The TeraStation 5000 series is packed with business class features such as surveillance video management, Active Directory support, disk quota support, share level replication, failover support, dual gigabit Ethernet ports, hot-swap hard drives, iSCSI targeting and USB 3.0 accessory support, ideal for larger networks and business-critical applications.

The TeraStation 5000 series offers a video surveillance asset management platform that allows you to record high quality video and store and manage it for easy access and playback. SoleraTec(TM) Phoenix RSM(TM) provides advanced forensics-based video lifecycle management that helps you manage and protect your video assets with ease. Support for up to 20 RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) IP-based video surveillance cameras allows users to directly capture, manage and store camera feeds, enabling playback of live and stored video. One camera license comes free with additional licenses available for purchase.

The TeraStation 5400 TS5400D features four pre-populated drive bays with capacities up to 12 TB and supports a variety of data protection options including RAID 0/1/5/6/10 and JBOD for a balanced mix of redundancy and performance. TeraStation 5400 will replace the current TeraStation Pro Quad TS-QVL/R6 and will be available in June at an estimated street price of $879.99 for the 4 TB (TS5400D0404), $1,199.99 for the 8 TB (TS5400D0804) and $1,699.99 for the 12 TB (TS5400D1204).

The TeraStation 5200 TS5200D features two pre-populated drive bays with capacities up to 6 TB and support for RAID 0/1/JBOD, making it an ideal solution for small offices that require the performance and reliability of a larger office but without the capacity demand. The TeraStation 5200 will replace the current TeraStation Pro Duo TS-WVL/R1 and will be available in June at an estimated street price of $549.99 for the 2 TB (TS5200D0202), $699.99 for the 4 TB (TS5200D0402) and $849.99 for the 6 TB (TS5200D0602).

Additional TeraStation 5000 series models will be launched following the TeraStation 5200 and TeraStation 5400, including larger bay and capacity and rack mountable configurations. Buffalo's TeraStation 5000 series is backed by a limited three-year warranty and toll-free 24/7 US based technical support.
