Secure, High Performance Central Storage
Buffalo’s LinkStation Duo is a high performance, dependable shared storage solution with easily accessible hard drives and simple to use data management features. Paired with two 3.5" hard drives, LinkStation Duo provides users the option to easily protect their data using RAID redundancy. RAID 1 automatically mirrors the drives, providing an exact copy for maximum data protection while RAID 0 combines both drives offering maximum capacity.
The two hard drive bays are easily accessed via the user removable front panel without the use of tools, providing simple drive servicing and replacement. Additionally, LinkStation Duo features gigabit connectivity, delivering fast connection speeds for exceptional performance.
Also available is the LinkStation Duo LS-WXL/1D which houses a single hard drive in its dual bay, giving users the option to upgrade the unit by adding a hard drive at any time. This flexibility provides a scalable storage solution that allows users to enable data mirroring or increase the overall capacity as needed.
