Buffalo Duo overview

  • 1Description

The 6TB DriveStation Duo USB 3.0 Hard Drive RAID Array from Buffalo is a data-safe, high performance storage solution, designed for a variety of applications. This unit comes outfitted with two 3TB hard drives that can operate independently of one another in a "JBOD" configuration or together in a RAID 0 or RAID 1 array. If you want faster throughput for accessing your data, configure the array as a RAID 0, and if you want extra redundancy for more securely storing your data, go with RAID 1. So as to ensure fast data access and transfer speeds at up to 5Gb/s, this unit features a USB 3.0 port for connecting to your server or computer. That USB connection is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 as well. While the drive will work with nearly all PC and Mac computers, it is formatted in FAT32 so that you can immediately start using it with your Windows PC. In addition to the hard drive RAID array, you'll receive the TurboPC Utility software, Buffalo Tools software suite, and the NovaBACKUP Business Essentials software.* All told, the 6TB DriveStation Duo USB 3.0 Hard Drive RAID Array is an exceptional storage solution for small servers, creative professionals, offices, and serious consumers.
