Terastation III questions
« on: March 11, 2009, 02:08:01 am »
   

* Aside from the disk drive sizes, are there any other differences between the Terastation III with 2TB (4 x 500GB drives), and the Terastation with 6TB (4 x 1.5TB drives)?? (In particular ram, processor speed, etc).

 

* How much ram/memory do the Terastation III models come with, and is it upgradable? (and if so to how much, and is the upgrade supported or no?).

 

* How does the 'replicaiton' feature of the Terastation III work? Is it file-level for each CIFS/NFS filesystem? Snapshot based or raw data based?  If file-based, what happens if files are currently being written during a scheduled 'replication'?  Finally, assuming 2 Terastations connected via 1Gbps, is there any advised way to calculate time to replicate?  Trying to define RPO + RTO.

 

* Finally, does Buffalo provide a list of 'supported drive' models for this NAS device? Or is it just a trial+error? (For example, some drives have special firmware for encryption, power savings, etc.  Is there a recommended brand/models based on Buffalo's testing?).

 

 

Thanks!

 Sorry for the delay.

 

1. No

 

2.  Not certain I don't have any concrete docs in front of me atm. But i believe it's somewhere in the range of 512 to 1 gb ddr2. And no, it's not upgradeable.

 

3. And you can use any drive you want, the stock firmware on most normal drives should work fine.
