The TeraStation 5400RN WSS is equipped with four 2TB 3.5" hard drives that can be set in various RAID configurations to provide you with data versatility. While a two-drive NAS system is limited to a RAID 0 or 1 setup, the 5400RN WSS lets you utilize a RAID 5 array that stripes the drives with parity for an efficient blend of fault tolerance and storage capacity. These drives are housed in four drive bays with hot-swapping capabilities, letting you replace a drive without powering down the TeraStation. When compared to standard drives, these NAS drives use less power, have a longer lifespan, and run cooler. For interfaces, the 5400RN WSS provides two Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0, and two USB 2.0 ports. Aside from these features, iSCSI and off-site replication technology are supported on the TeraStation 5400RN WSS.

This delivers real-time synchronous replication of data, providing easy and continuous data protection in the event of data loss. If your system configuration includes data replication from one TeraStation 5400RN WSS unit to another, you can set up fail-over to automatically switch main operation over to the redundant TeraStation if the main unit ever becomes inaccessible. Within a minute, the backup TeraStation automatically assumes the role of the main TeraStation 5400RN WSS with no disruption and no IT intervention. Data can be continuously accessed without any notice of the fail-over.
Reliable and Secure
The TeraStation 5400RN WSS offers high capacity, highly available storage accessibility among multiple platforms for seamless centralized storage and backup. Create user and group profiles as well as a control folder with file access to protect business critical content and privacy. It comes with multiple levels of RAID that provide continuous data protection and increased fault tolerance and data availability.
  • RAID 0 - combines all drives into a single array offering maximum capacity with no redundancy
  • RAID 1 - mirrors two arrays, creating an exact copy of data for fault tolerance
  • RAID 5 - stripes the data across all four drives, interspersing parity data to provide an efficient blend of fault tolerance and storage capacity
Remote File Access
The TeraStation 5400RN WSS offers multiple ways to remotely access and share your important data for enhanced collaboration and productivity. With WebAccess and FTP/SFTP servers, you can securely access and share files with anyone outside the local network. Trusted recipients can access selected files from anywhere over the Internet.
