Overview:DriveStation Duo is a high performance, 2-drive desktop storage and backup solution. Equipped with two optimized hard drives, DriveStation Duo features the redundancy and performance required for demanding professional and server applications.
EASY SCHEDULED BACKUPDriveStation Duo is perfect for backing up your important files. Disaster and hard drive failures can occur unexpectedly; don't leave your important files and treasured memories in the hands of chance. DriveStation Duo features eleven licenses of NovaBACKUP Buffalo Edition for Windows® PCs and servers (one server and ten workstations) and Time Machine support for backing up Mac computers.
FLEXIBLE STORAGE AND REDUNDANCYDriveStation Duo provides users the flexibility to easily maximize capacity or protect their data using RAID redundancy.
- RAID 0 combines all drives into a single array offering maximum storage capacity with no redundancy.
- RAID 1 offers maximum redundancy by mirroring both drives. Data is automatically duplicated, so that if one drive fails, the data is kept safe on the other. Buffalo recommends RAID 1 for all devices using two hard drives.
HOT SWAPPABLE HARD DRIVESDriveStation Duo's hot swap feature allows a user to replace a hard drive in the event of failure without powering down the device. Simply remove the defective drive, insert the new drive and the data rebuilds while still being available to clients on the network with zero downtime.
