Buffalo Americas, Inc. announces its TeraStation solution to hybrid cloud storage.

TeraStation 5010

The TeraStation 3010 and 5010 NAS series are both integratable to 3rd party cloud services such as Amazon S3 and Dropbox. The WSS NAS storage solution integrates with any windows based cloud service such as OneDrive. All company's NAS devices can create a private cloud by replicating data between two or more devices.

Create hybrid solution that takes advantage of private and public cloud
Securing information is a priority for many businesses. But as data volumes grow, technology evolves, and new options (i.e., public cloud) for backup emerge, it's difficult to determine the right approach for your business. This is why many are forgoing having to choose one or the other, turning instead to a hybrid-public and private-cloud strategy. And they're looking to the company's technology and expertise to help make that happen.

Multiple approaches to storage backup

  • Private cloud: The more secure backup method is data replication, where you're essentially creating a private cloud backup between multiple NAS devices in different locations. NAS backup that is attached to your private network virtually functions like a private cloud solution. The TeraStations work together and with other third-party NAS solutions to enable data replication and backup in the private cloud.

  • Hybrid cloud: The second approach involves third-party public cloud services, where your information is backed up or replicated between a TeraStation unit and an offsite public cloud solution provider, like Dropbox or Amazon. The TeraStation WSS Series, which is powered by Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 and provides integration with Windows systems, is another solution that helps users backup, secure, and conveniently access information. This device integrates with any Windows supported cloud service.

With different pros and cons per option, how do you choose the right solution for you? The good news is that you don't have to choose between one approach or the other. The company's storage and backup TeraStation solutions support both private and public cloud options. Use firm's NAS devices to create a private cloud backup strategy-or easily modify them to integrate with select third-party cloud solution, thus creating a secure hybrid cloud.

Implement hybrid cloud backup strategy for added protection and cost savings
Many businesses are implementing hybrid cloud solutions that draw from the best of both worlds-public and private cloud. The hybrid cloud approach integrates third-party public cloud services with your existing NAS environment. Finding the right balance between the two can help you optimize costs, security, and control.

You determine what that right mix looks like, depending on business requirements. For example, with a hybrid cloud solution you could routinely backup your data all day on your NAS at no cost, and then at the end of the day, make one large data update to your cloud account. Or, if you start running out of space on your cloud account and don't want to purchase more, you can always prioritize what data stays on your NAS (sensitive data) versus what you put into the cloud (less sensitive data). This is flexibility that you currently don't get with one or the other.

What's important is to work with a provider who understands your business and can help you plan for and implement the right hybrid strategy. Our different TeraStation solutions are positioned to take advantage of both public and private cloud benefits.
