Buffalo Enterprises Adapter
Buffalo’s NASNavigator 2 makes light work of initial deployment and share mapping
Installation is swift as you use the NASNavigator 2 utility to auto-discover the appliance. Along with direct access to the web management console, it provides a handy network share browsing and drive mapping service.
The web interface is the same as that presented by Buffalo’s desktop appliances and is easy enough to use. For file sharing, the appliance supports SMB, NFS and AFP and each protocol can be enabled or disabled with a single mouse click.
Access security to shares is good as the appliance supports a local user database or authentication via an NT domain or Active Directory. Share creation is simplified as all features are accessed from a single screen where you can decide on global read or read/write access, select which protocols are supported, assign a Recycle Bin and apply access permissions.
The 7120r supports all key network protocols which can be enabled and disabled with a single mouse click
The 7120r supports share replication using Rsync but only to other TeraStations. It can manage scheduled backups of local data and when creating shares, you can enable the Backup option which allows them to be used as destinations.
The appliance has six USB2 ports for external storage devices but does not have any integral USB3 ports. If you want these you’ll need to add Buffalo’s optional USB3 PCI-e card which costs around an extra £35.
The bundled NovaBackup Business Essentials software makes light work of scheduled workstation backups and the price includes a 10-user license. Cloud backup features aren’t as plentiful as those offered by Synology and Qnap as the 7120r only supports Amazon S3.
IP camera surveillance is another new feature although you’ll need to use a Windows PC as a host for the Surveillance Server software. The appliance simply acts as a vault for camera recording as all schedules and camera configurations are managed at the host PC.
You must enable LVM for combined NAS and IP SAN operations but this action will delete any existing shares
IP SANs and LVM
Before using the appliance, think carefully about how you plan to deploy it. If you want to provide both NAS and IP SAN services you will need to reconfigure the 7120r first.
