The Buffalo TS3010 series is designed for small businesses that want to take the next step in protecting their valuable business data. Many small businesses lack a comprehensive approach to data backup and protection. No more backing up to thumb drives or disks that get misplaced - it's time to get serious about data. Designed for organizations around 25 users, the TS3010 series delivers the same features and functionality as more advanced NAS solutions from Buffalo. With the TS3010, small to medium size businesses can take advantage of the reliability and security once only reserved for enterprise level organizations. Instead of backing up to thumb drives and managing multiple tape or external hard drives TeraStation 3010 can automate the backup plan including local and cloud based strategies. Automation saves you time, money and ensures better results should you need to recover data. Data security is a concern in today's world.

Designed for reliable operations in an always-on NAS devices, NAS drives are much more stable and reliable that standard desktop hard drives.
