  • A new Windows Storage Server appliance

    Buffalo also launched a Windows Storage Server based on the TeraStation design. It comes pre-installed with Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 and supports Raid 0, 1, 5 and standard. It is available with 2TB or 4TB of capacity.

    The company is taking a similar approach to HP, which is targeting small businesses with low-cost servers and associated hardware. Buffalo hopes the fact it pre-installs and integrates the drives will tempt businesses to use its kit, Hudson said.

  • The company has also released two routers, one of which can be expanded into a lightweight NAS

    Buffalo also released two modems targeted at small businesses. The AirStation N Technology High Power Broadband ADSL2+ Modern Router is £30, while the AirStation Nfiniti Wireless-N 300Mbps High Power Gigabit Router is £59.

    The Nfiniti (pictured, right) can be turned into a lightweight NAS, as it comes with a USB port that can be attached to a USB HDD. It manages two 300Mbps networks at the same time, and the workload can be shared between the two.

    The AirStation N (pictured, left) provides up to 150Mbps of routing performance. It has a 5db high-gain antenna, which Buffalo said can help to reduce wireless dead spots.
