Buffalo CloudStor Pro NAS server

Storage
-If you have a network-attached storage server, or NAS server, at home, it would be great to be able to access remotely over the Internet when you're out and about, wouldn't it? Well, I have one here that is all about that. Hello, my name is Dong Ngo and this is the CloudStor Pro NAS server from Buffalo. The name itself, CloudStor, suggests that this server is attached more to the Internet, or the cloud, than the local network. The CloudStor Pro comes with two bays with one of them occupied by a 2-terabyte hard drive. You then can add another and put the two in RAID 1, or mirror, configuration. This is a good setup that safeguards the data against one hard drive failure. Unfortunately, if you want to merge the two hard drives into one large 4-terabyte storage space in a regular set-up, it's not possible with this server. On the back, the server has 1-gigabit Ethernet port and 1 USB port to host more storage. This is rather limited as most other servers have a more than one USB port and some even offer other types of ports such as eSATA. The Buffalo proved itself to be a great Pogoplug server. As long as you have a live Internet connection, it's super easy to get it up and running. You can also quickly share content with others over the Internet. The server also works with the Pogoplug mobile apps and allows for streaming media right on your mobile devices. There's one big problem, however, and that is the server requires the Internet for most of its function to work and require fast connection at both the server's and the client's end to work well. For the local network that it's plugged into, it doesn't offer much. For this reason, despite the fast throughput performance and the affordable price of just $240 with 2 terabytes included, the CloudStor Pro will make a great device for every home server. Pogoplug fans, on the other hand, will no doubt love it. To know more if this NAS server is for you, check out the full review at CNET.com. My name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the CloudStor Pro NAS server from Buffalo.
