The TeraStation 24TB WSH5610DN 6-Bay NAS Server from Buffalo combines a high-performance NAS with 24TB of storage in a 6 x 4TB configuration, a hardware RAID controller, and the Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 (Standard Edition) operating system. Supported RAID modes include RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, each of which delivers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also supported. The operating system, which integrates with computers and servers on existing networks to facilitate a user-friendly deployment, runs from a dedicated internal SSD, helping the system to operate with speed and efficiency, even when the hard drive array is engaged in taxing operations, such as RAID rebuilds.
The system is powered by a 2.41 GHz Intel Celeron J1800 Quad-Core processor with 4GB of DDR3 ECC RAM and operates using TeraStation's NAS System OS. Other integrated features include dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, one USB 3.0 Type-A port, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, and compatibility with Windows & Mac OS. Power is provided by a universal internal power supply that runs using 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz. Included is a Cat5e network cable, a cable clump, a Windows Restore SD memory card, an AC cable, and front panel keys. Also included is a software utility CD with TeraNavigator, NASNavigator2, NovaBACKUP, and Adobe Reader.
Speed and Stability with Hardware RAID
With the TeraStation WSH5610DN's operating system completely located on an SSD drive of its own, each HDD is able to utilize space for user data. Without having to reinstall the OS for each RAID change, the dedicated SSD allows for faster boot times and more efficient operations.
