Home or Business ? Once, home networks were primarily the realm of enthusiasts - most families either didn’t need or couldn’t afford more than one computer. But now, in addition to using computers for email, people use them for schoolwork, shopping, instant messaging, downloading music or videos and playing games. For many home environments multiple computers are very much the norm and therefore a home network is now a necessity. A home network is simply a method for allowing multiple devices such as computers, game consoles and multimedia solutions to communicate and share information eg, an Internet connection, multimedia files, documents and a printer. The different network types use different hardware, but they all have the same essential components: • More than one computer H • ardware (such as a router and software either built in to the system or as a separate application) to coordinate the exchange of information • A wireless link for the information to follow from one computer to another If you’re thinking of networking the computers in your home, you have several options to explore. Buffalo provide a range of products you can use for your home computer networks, whether for use with the family for file sharing, storing and streaming of music and videos, or going Wireless to give you the flexibility of roaming around your home with access. If a business has more than one computer it could benefit from networking them together. A local area network (LAN) connects computers, allowing them to share and exchange a variety of information. Here are some of the ways a computer network can help your business: File sharing: Ever needed to access a file stored on another computer? A network makes it easy to access the same file and prevents people from accidentally creating different versions. Printer sharing: With a network, several computers can share the same printer. Although you might need a more expensive printer to handle the added workload, it’s still cheaper to use a network printer than to connect a separate printer to every computer in an office. Communication and collaboration: It’s hard for people to work together if no one knows what anyone else is doing. A network allows employees to share files, view other people’s work and exchange ideas more efficiently. In a larger office, e-mail and instant messaging tools can be used to communicate quickly and to store messages for future reference. Remote access: Having a network allows greater mobility while maintaining the same level of productivity. With remote access users are able to access the same files, data and messages even when they’re not in the office. This access can even be given to mobile handheld devices. Data protection: It is important to understand that data integrity and availability are essential in a business environment. It’s vital to back-up computer data regularly and to store online information in a fail-proof system, a networked or RAID device makes it easier to do so. If you’re considering networking computers or to increase the data storage capacity you have several options to explore. Buffalo provide a range of products for business Wireless networks and Storage solutions you can rely on. Education 7 Education - Buffalo Storage Technology Direct Attached or Network Attached? Storage systems are defined by technology, connectivity and capacity. These are the key elements you need to consider before choosing the right storage solution. Direct Attached Storage or External Storage is connected directly to your computer. There are three main connectivity technologies available on the market - USB, FireWire and eSATA. The latest USB version available is USB 2.0 (480Mbps) and it uses the standard USB connection which is the most widely available port on computers. FireWire is more common in the Apple MAC world and in high-end laptops, initially developed to transfer data with your favourite video camera but it is now widely used for external storage connections. It is available in two variants FireWire 400 (400Mbps) and FireWire 800 (800Mbps). eSATA is a new technology (up to 3Gbps) this is becoming more widely available in newer computers. eSATA is the first external connection designed specifically for Storage. Networked Storage is the better choice if you want to share data with several computers, whether you’re at home or you need additional storage for your business. You can simply connect a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device to your network and access it from anywhere, even from the Internet. Direct Attached or Network Attached - make your choice . . . • Direct Attached - Simple and fast. You can choose devices with mulitple connectivity, so for example you can use USB today and upgrade to eSATA tomorrow. • Network Attached - This is a more flexible option if you want to centrally store, share and manage your data amongst users in your home or business and you need larger storage capacities. You will need a network and ensure that all devices you wish to connect are compatible with it, other than that, set-up is as simple as Direct Attached products. 8 Education - Buffalo Storage Technology What is RAID? RAID is an acronym of “Redundant Array of Independent Disks”. The idea is to combine standard drives into an array which performs better than a single disk and at the same time your computer sees it as a standalone drive. This technology can be used in different ways to achieve different results called RAID Modes. Speed - RAID 0 or striping mode is used to achieve higher storage capacities with maximum speed. The data is split among several disks that are written at the same time. So for example 2 drives of 250GB capacity in RAID 0 are faster than a single 500GB drive. RAID 1 or mirroring mode is used to make an exact copy of data on each disk in the array, in this mode the capacity is the same as the single drive. RAID 5 or parity mode distributes data across multiple disks making the system failproof. In this configuration the total capacity of the system is (N-1)*GB where “N” is the number of disks you have in the array, so for example four disks of 250GB capacity provides 750GB of total usable storage. In some more advanced systems is it possible to combine different RAID modes together. Speed & Redundancy - RAID 10 is a combination of Mode 0 and 1 which gives the read/write speed of RAID 0 and the redundancy of RAID 1. Why would you need RAID? 1. For “Speed and Capacity” - RAID 0 is the best choice 2. If you need “Maximum Redundancy” - RAID 1 would be the preferred option 3. If you require an “Increase in Capacity” and have “Simple Redundancy” - RAID 5 is the better solution 4. For a perfect combination of speed and security, choose RAID 10. 9 Education - Buffalo Storage Technology What is Buffalo Web Access? Buffalo’s unique Web Access feature allows users to instantly share and access their pictures, music or other files with friends and family via web access any Web browser. Buffalo NAS is the portal site that is responsible for establishing a peer-to-peer connection between Buffalo NAS (Network Attached Storage) servers, such as the LinkStation Live and external users. As a result there is no need for you or the people you share your files with, to install any software. Web access is also available on all mobile devices with a web browser including the iPhone. What is TurboUSB? Buffalo’s TurboUSB uses accelerated Input/Output technology to achieve a much faster data throughput on our USB 2.0 external Hard Drive range of products. This technology is fully Plug-n-Play and compatible with Windows and Mac environments. What is Secure Lock Ware™? In today’s world of digital storage, ensuring data confidentiality is a necessity. Buffalo Secure Lock Ware™ is a free software security tool which offers a range of security options to encrypt your confidential data. Be it lost, stolen or illegally accessed data, Buffalo SLW™ has you covered!

What is Single Level Cell (SLC) Technology? Single Level Cell (SLC) technology is found on high-end flash drives and delivers much faster data transfer speeds than the older Multi Level Cell (MLC) technology found in many USB flash products. SLC also has a longer endurance than the previous technology with up to 100,000 read/ write sessions, compared to only 10,000 with MLC thus ensuring your high-end Buffalo USB flash lasts longer*! *Only Type-R, Type-S and SHD-UHR What is AppleTM BonjourTM? AppleTM BonjourTM was originally developed by Apple and introduced in 2002 as “Rendevous”. Also known as zero-configuration networking, AppleTM BonjourTM enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. It uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. Currently it is used by Mac OS X and on other operating systems to find printers and file sharing servers. It is also used by iTunes to find shared music. 11 Education-IndustryTechnology What is BitTorrentTM? BitTorrentTM is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data and is the global standard for delivering high-quality files over the Internet. A BitTorrentTM client is a program that manages torrent downloads and uploads using the BitTorrentTM protocol. The BitTorrentTM file sharing protocol is used to distribute large amounts of data in a peer-to-peer network. The providers of a complete file act as “seeders”. Each one who downloads the data also uploads them to other peers called “leechers”. The advantage of a BitTorrentTM client is that it also provides redundancy against system problems and reduces dependence on the original distributor. With thousands of newly-released movies, TV shows, music tracks, and popular PC games available for download, you can easily find what you want, when you want it. What is Blu-ray? Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of a next-generation optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world’s leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson). The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codes will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience. Recent development by Pioneer has pushed the storage capacity to 500GB on a single disc by using 20 layers. While current optical disc technologies such as DVD, DVD±R, DVD±RW, and DVD-RAM rely on a red laser to read and write data, the new format uses a blue-violet laser instead, hence the name Blu-ray. Despite the different type of lasers used, Blu-ray products can easily be made backwards compatible with CDs and DVDs through the use of a BD/DVD/CD compatible optical pick-up unit. The benefit of using a blue-violet laser (405nm) is that it has a shorter wavelength than a red laser (650nm), which makes it possible to focus the laser spot with even greater precision. This allows data to be packed more tightly and stored in less space, so it’s possible to fit more data on the disc even though it’s the same size as a CD/DVD. This together with the change of numerical aperture to 0.85 is what enables Blu-ray Discs to hold 25GB/50GB. 12 Education-MultimediaTechnology Why do you need DLNA? Examples of DLNA certified devices available from Buffalo DLNA is for anyone who wishes it were easier to share multimedia files around the home. For people to access a photo stored on the PC in the study and with a press of the remote, view it on the TV in the living room. It will allow you to take the music on a mobile phone and listen to it on the stereo in the kitchen. This simple, powerful connectivity is what DLNA is all about. How does DLNA work? The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA), is a diverse group of companies who have agreed on a universal standard for connectivity. This standard allows many different devices, regardless of brand, to “talk” to one another so everyone in your home can share a common pool of files. No more plugging, copying, searching and importing just to print a photo from your mobile LinkStation Mini LinkStation Quad LinkStation Live phone. 13 Education - Buffalo Wireless Technology What is AOSS? Setting up a secure Wireless network has always been difficult and complicated.
