AUSTIN, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Buffalo Americas, a leading provider of USB storage, network attached storage (NAS) and networking solutions, announces the availability of new, high speed 10GbE solutions; the Buffalo TeraStation™ 5010 series NAS and the BS-XP series of switches. With these products, Buffalo is delivering a more affordable 10GbE platform to the SMB market.
“We believe this product combination will allow small to mid-sized businesses to begin the transition to 10GbE, which has not been economically possible to this point.”
Buffalo recognizes that businesses are faced with an increase in the size and number of files that need to be transferred to their NAS devices and that network speed is a huge bottleneck. For example, users are finding that working with large databases or processing and storing surveillance recordings has become impractical on legacy 1Gigabit networks. The new TS5010 combined with the new BS-XP provides 10GbE capability. Users with legacy Cat5e cable are also able to clear the bottleneck as the TeraStation 5010 supports both 2.5 and 5Gb/s.
The TS5010 with its new faster processor, 4 GB ECC memory, NAS-grade hard drives and 10GbE speeds will be a welcome addition to any network environment where always-on operation is needed. Buffalo TeraStations are populated with drives that have been pre-configured and tested to ensure their functionality.
“TeraStation 5010 value-add is immediately available,” said Ben DeLaurier, Director of Support at Buffalo Americas. “Customers do not have to worry about drive quality or where to call for support. Buffalo’s support team is ready to help any customer 24/7 from our North America-based support center.”
Buffalo’s new BS-XP series of 10GbE switches are the perfect complement to the TeraStation 5010. Customers can simply plug in their network-ready devices, and the BS-XP switch will configure the correct connection. Featuring a full-metal chassis and lifetime warranty, Buffalo customers will enjoy yet another high quality product family.
The BS-XP series is an entry-level Layer 2 unmanaged switch featuring 8 or 12 10GbE ports for fast network speeds. Other features include full duplex operation for high performance, and Intelligent Power Control and IEEE 802.3az Green Ethernet technology to conserve energy. Automatic port configuration enables plug and play operation with any Ethernet cable.
Customers Can Easily and Affordably Transition to 10GbE
“The new products announced today, TeraStation 5010 and BS-XP families, are the perfect combination for customers looking to upgrade their networks to enterprise-level speeds at affordable prices,” said Bill Rhodes, Director of Channel Sales at Buffalo Americas. “We believe this product combination will allow small to mid-sized businesses to begin the transition to 10GbE, which has not been economically possible to this point.”
