Buffalo Americas, a leading provider of external storage, network attached storage and networking solutions, today announced the availability of the TeraStation 7120r Enterprise 72 TB 2U Rackmount NAS (TS-2RZH72T12D), the industry's first enterprise-class network attached storage (NAS) model with 6 TB HGST Ultrastar He6 helium-filled drives. This quad-core, enterprise-class NAS enables IT managers to expand their system storage capacity without adding rack storage space, power circuits or additional storage units, resulting in maximized space utilization and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
Large-scale datacenters and enterprise IT service providers are continually required to increase storage space efficiency while lowering costs. Buffalo's latest high-performance NAS offering delivers improved efficiency by utilizing the world's first hermetically sealed helium hard drive intended for massive scale-out environments. Enabled by the Ultrastar He6 drive, this 2U rack mountable NAS system with 72 TB currently offers the largest capacity in the industry. Buffalo plans to launch a variety of NAS models in various additional capacities with Ultrastar He6 drives later this year.
Thecus is pleased to announce the expansion on the company's SMB and Enterprise NAS line with the 10GbE Ready N7710 and N8810U. These new models offer identical hardware and performance to the recently released N7710-G and N8810U-G, differing only in stock support for 10GbE connectivity.
These models offer excellent value for companies who do not currently have the need or infrastructure for 10GbE speeds, and are looking for powerful performance and an attractive architecture. Both units are fully upgradable if a company decides to make the jump to 10GbE down the line.
