1U TeraStation III NAS

Buffalo Technology on Tuesday announced its latest storage product, the rackmount TeraStation III, aimed at small- to medium-size businesses. The network device is built on the same platform as the company's standalone TeraStation III, with support for hot swapping, replication, NFS, Active Directory and Time Machine backup. Users can configure the drives in RAID arrays or apply disk encryption for sensitive data.

The TeraStation can be remotely monitored or controlled through a web-based interface accessible from any browser, while an integrated LCD also provides status information. Power consumption is claimed to be reduced by 66 percent compared to similar products, as three separate timers allow automatic shutdown outside of business hours. The drives also automatically spin-down when idle.

The TeraStation III fits into a standard 1U rack space and includes a three-year warranty. Estimated street prices vary by storage capacity, with the 2TB model fetching $1300 and the 4TB variant available for $1800. The 6TB and 8TB configurations carry prices of $2300 and $3000, respectively.
