Buffalo has announced to release TeraStation iSCSI and TeraStation iSCSI Rackmount storage devices in the Indian market. Both the devices will be available in 1 TB, 2 TB and 4TB of storage capacities.
The iSCSI storage devices are especially designed for small to medium sized businesses to store their data securely.
The iSCSI protocol transports simple SCSI storage commands over standard TCP/IP networks. Further, iSCSI targets give servers the illusion of being locally attached disks that are directly accessible by the OS.
“As companies grow and move increasing amounts of data to the datacenter for consolidation or to an off-site storage location, they experience the need for flexible and intuitive storage devices that make data storage handling simple, manageable and reliable,” said Atsuo Shibata, Country Manager, Buffalo India. “The new TeraStation iSCSI is a powerful SMB solution that delivers this extended functionality while still fitting into the budget of cost conscious SMB purchasers.”
Both the units feature four quick swap hard drive trays that are located behind the screwless front bezel. The design protects high speed 7,200 RPM SATA drives and at the same time it offers easy access and drive replacement.
The TeraStation iSCSI features an advanced RAID system with four RAID modes: RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10. Moreover, it is equipped with a silent cooling fan that helps the device to be cool by efficiently releasing heat while a front panel LCD display indicates the status of the device.
In addition, a 10/100/1000 Ethernet interface ensures existing network infrastructure can also be used effeciently.
TeraStation iSCSI and TeraStation iSCSI Rackmount will carry the price tags of Rs. 67,000 (1 TB), Rs. 84,000 (2 TB) and Rs. 1,30,000 (4 TB).
