The Digital Economy – CeBIT 2016

Buffalo recently joined the biggest names in the technology industry for CeBIT 2016. The annual event, as always, showcased the very latest and exciting innovations that are shaping the technology landscape.

The ‘digital economy’ was the theme of the event, and it didn’t disappoint, featuring more than 500 examples of digitalisation and bringing to life the Internet of Things. Some of the most exciting things we saw at the event was the first wheeled service robot and a street lamp which can double as a charging station for electric vehicles.

During the event, Buffalo presented some of its newest devices, including the TeraStation WSH5610 with Windows Storage Server and Hardware RAID, MiniStation Extreme NFC Enterprise as well as the LS510 and LS510DE, marking the completion of the LS500 range.

With big data growing at an unprecedented rate, IDC forecast predicts the big data market will grow at a 26.4% compound annual growth rate through 2018. The need for flexible and expanding devices to store this data has never been more important.

Buffalo’s LS500 range is perfect for anyone looking to back up, enjoy and share those special memories. The new RAID expansion provides flexible storage to consumers without compromising important data such as photos and movies.

In the business area Buffalo showcased two new devices, which highlight Buffalo’s commitment to security and the protection of data without compromising performance. The new TeraStation WS5610 features a Buffalo proprietary Hardware RAID controller enabling faster, more-reliable storage with well-known security, stability, and management advantages. Hardware RAID separates the operating system (OS) from storage, and allows each to run consecutively without affecting the device’s overall performance.

Looking back over our favourites moments

New product launches, events, exhibitions, seminars, services and a new partnership – it was quite a year for the Buffalo Europe team in 2015. With so many fantastic things going on, we struggled to pick just one favourite moment so we have selected some of our main highlights from the year.

The launch of the LinkStation 520

In September we launched our latest consumer NAS (Network Attached Storage) device in the LinkStation range. Its large capacity, new intuitive user interface and super fast transfer rates make the LinkStation 520 ideal for home use and also home offices. Users can store, organise and stream media files from any computer, smartphone or tablet and access them from any location at the click of a button.

MISCO Expo 2015

MISCO is an annual event that gives IT professionals an opportunity to view the very latest innovations that the industry has to offer. We returned to exhibit the latest Buffalo technology.

As always, the event was a fantastic success and it was great to showcase alongside the products and solutions that are shaping today’s technology landscape.

We’re already looking forward to MISCO Expo 2016.

New UPS Drop-Off Service

As part of our ongoing commitment to customer service, we now offer a new UPS drop-off service. This means that if for any reason there is a defect with an item during the warranty period, you can return and exchange products as quick and easily as possible. You can find out more about the service here.

Extended warranty for TeraStations

In September we introduced extended warranty on all new purchases of fully-populated TeraStation devices. Customers now have the opportunity to purchase a warranty extension of one or two years. In addition to our standard warranty period, this means that all TeraStation devices will be secure and protected for up to five years – which is above industry standard. Furthermore, our extended warranty customers are guaranteed a hard drive replacement within 24 hours of if for any reason there is system failure or damage.

Kroll Ontrack partnership

We were excited to announce our new partnership with data recovery experts Kroll Ontrack in November. We are proud that our devices are in-built with robust and varied back-up functionalities; however, there are certain circumstances in which data loss can occur, even with the most capable back-up strategy. Failing technology, human error and natural disasters, such as fire or flooding, can all cause data loss. Access to Kroll Ontrack provides our customers with peace of mind.

Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

First, know your tech trivia (especially Buffalo devices). Also, it’ll be worthwhile knowing some basic Morse Code and the structure of some well-known board games. TV, film and celebrity trivia is always a necessity, with maybe a bit of inside knowledge of Pulp Fiction. Our last hint is to know some sporting facts and figures (including the 2013 Grand National).

Arrive with your pens at the ready and your brains in gear! We hope you are as excited about Thursday as we are and we look forward to seeing you all there.
