Paul Hudson, Northern European Sales Director, Buffalo Technology, said: “For any small business it is vital that digital information is managed, stored and backed up efficiently and safely, whilst still providing the appropriate levels of access to its users.

The perfect solution for the home office or small business, the TeraStation ES features Hot Swap and Hot Spare functionality – meaning that if a hard drive were to fail then the user would be able to safely remove and replace it without losing any data or suffering any downtime. The replication function also improves reliability, fault tolerance and accessibility through enabling the connection of a second TeraStation via the LAN port.
