Buffalo Technology Inc. is a company based in Austin, Texas. It is a global provider of networking, storage, multimedia and memory solutions for the home and small business environments. At CES (News - Alert) 2013, it announced its new BuffaloLink cloud storage solution. It offers consumers a secure and easy way to bridge digital content and have it all available from one outside location.
The BuffaloLink service was built from the ground up to make it easy for Buffalo users to access their data and content through the cloud in a secure manner. BuffaloLink is a service that securely connects users to all of the content on their Buffalo network attached storage (NAS) devices while they are away from home. BuffaloLink consolidates supported Buffalo NAS devices for easy remote access from a single account.
Buffalo Technology Inc. hosts the service. They have servers in the United States, Europe and Asia. The service is also free on supported Buffalo devices. It will be available on the new LinkStation 400 Series, which will be launching early in 2013. BuffaloLink is easy to set up and manage, with no advanced firewall configurations or membership fees. The BuffaloLink cloud relay system was designed to provide the utmost ease of use and performance, promoting an exceptional user experience.
The account registration and login was created to make it a very easy, one stop access point. Hajime Nakai, Buffalo Technology’s chief executive officer in the United States, said "With each new gadget, daily activities revolve more and more around our digital worlds. Being connected to your content is now more than a luxury - it is a necessity. We designed and built BuffaloLink to provide the best cloud access technology in the industry, allowing consumers to access terabytes of their content over the Internet."
The new LinkStation 400 Series will offer ultra-high performance network storage operation. It features an upgraded processor with transfer speeds of 80+ Mbps. It will have a new user interface that offers a wholly redesigned look and feel, with intuitive navigation and easy-to-use setup wizards.
Buffalo will be offering several versions of its new LinkStation. Each model will be available with different storage size options. They will all be backed by a three-year limited warranty including toll-free 24/7 U.S. based technical support. All models will be available in the spring of this year
