2-Drive RAID Storage

LinkStation Pro Duo features two hard drives configured in RAID 1 Mirroring. It provides automatic and continuous data protection as data is mirrored onto both drives, protecting data in the event of a drive failure. If a drive fails, simply replace the failed hard drive and the RAID 1 mirror will automatically rebuild. LinkStation Pro Duo can also be configured in RAID 0 Striping mode, combining both hard drives into a single, large capacity and high performance data volume offering maximum capacity. In RAID 0, if a single hard drive failure occurs, all data is lost.




High Speed

Optimized for maximum transfer speed, LinkStation Pro Duo utilizes an upgraded processor and RAM, offering greater than 2X the data transfer speed of competing devices.

  • 1.6 GHz processor speed
  • DDR3 RAM
  • Transfer speeds up to 72 MB/s

BuffaloNAS.com makes sharing and accessing remote files easy. It even resizes your photos for optimized streaming over the Internet. WebAccess also accommodates mobile devices including Apple mobile devices and some Android phones by using a specially formatted version of WebAccess.
