Middle
East, 24 February 2008 – Buffalo Technology has today unveiled the
TeraStation Pro II Rackmount™. The Network Attached Storage (NAS) unit
is aimed at businesses that need to increase storage capacity without
the expense of buying and installing additional servers. The rackmount
model complements the existing range of desktop NAS devices. 

Available in 1.0TB, 2.0TB and 4.0TB options, Buffalo’s TeraStation Pro
II Rackmount™ is 2U high and will meet the needs of businesses with
existing 19” rack-mountable servers; enabling them to securely store
large volumes of data in a locked cabinet.

Gerardine Lynch, EMEA Product Marketing Manager at Buffalo, says, “With
the growing need to store more and more data, the TeraStation Pro II
Rackmount™ provides the market with a secure solution that can be
integrated into an existing server room allowing business users to add
additional storage without breaking the bank.”

The TeraStation Rackmount range delivers transfer speeds of up to
35MB/s, and is equipped with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and Standard to give
businesses varying levels of redundancy and/or speed, depending on
their individual requirements. It supports Active Directory
integration, to allow the TeraStation Pro II Rackmount™ to utilise
domain users and groups by working as a client member in an Active
Directory domain.

“The SMB market segment is one of the fastest growing in the Middle
East and the TeraStation Pro II Rackmount™ is a perfect solution for
the storage needs of this segment,” said Kevin Vine, EMEA General
Manager, Buffalo. “This new solution is particularly useful for smaller
branches of large enterprises, departments, etc that need to have
secure storage on site.”

Other key features include front-loading quick swap hard drive tray and
LCD display, 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet port and Jumbo Frame
capability, built-in FTP server functionality and two USB ports
allowing external hard drives to be attached for back-up.

authorised partners across the Middle East, estimated street prices for
the TeraStation Pro II Rackmount are:

TS-RH1.0TGL/R5 (1.0TB) $955
