In past years, many of the Windows Storage Server platforms we have seen here at TweakTown have come from Buffalo. Expanding their WSS solutions, Buffalo is adding to their 5400 and 5600 product lines adding a two-bay variant dubbed the 5200 WSS. This solution is available in both 4TB and 8TB models, both running on the Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 platform. Operating on the Windows platform, a solution such as the 5200 WSS should appeal to small and medium business that want the seamless integration and reliability that Windows provides.
Underneath, the software layer Buffalo is outfitting the 5200 WSS with similar components found in the 5400. We have an Intel platform featuring the Atom D2550 CPU operating at 1.86GHz coupled with 4GB of DDR3 memory.
Digging into the specifications of the 5200, we find the TeraStation compatible with 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB drives with the SATA II or III interface. RAID modes supported include 0, 1 and JBOD with a dual Gigabit LAN interface. Further down, we see the 5200 houses two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports along with a front mounted VGA output.
The weight of this unit is 9.9 lbs with power consumption rated at 65 watts maximum. Client OS support ranges from Windows Vista to Windows 8 along with Windows Server 2008 to Server 2012.
