Buffalo launches new 12-bay TeraStation 71210RH NAS

Check out this new 12-bay monster of a 2U NAS.

Buffalo announced the launch of TerraStation 71210RH, a new 12-bay NAS that can be configured as partially or fully populated with hard drives. Designed with server-grade deployments in mind, Buffalo is offering a more affordable yet secure storage solution for businesses. Let’s take a look at the TerraStation 71210RH.

The rackmount is available in a 2U form factor with capacities ranging between 32TB and 240TB and Buffalo includes enterprise-grade CMR hard drives as standard. Powering all this storage is the mighty Intel Xeon D-1713NT processor, which is capable of firing all four cores up to 2.2GHz. It’s more than enough to handle the four 10GbE ports and then some.

The above specifications will allow for simultaneous connections between the TerraStation and hundreds of clients. As well as the beefy CPU, there’s at least 16GB of DDR4 RAM and two available PCIe 4.0 x8 slots for expansion cards to be installed. Whether this be the addition of SFP or storage cards, just like the best NAS out there, the TS71210RH will happily scale.

Data is kept secure thanks to Buffalo’s robust security measures, including 2FA, closed system, 256-bit AES encryption, and backup features. The Buffalo TerraStation TS71210RH is available now from just shy of $6,000 for the server with four 8TB drives. Prices quickly increase alongside the preinstalled capacity.
