    High Performance Shared Storage & Media Server

    LinkStation Pro Duo is a high performance 2-drive RAID network storage device that comes equipped with a whole host of features, perfect for storing, sharing, serving and protecting your most important data. Backup multiple PCs and Mac® computers simultaneously and enjoy uninterrupted access to terabytes of storage on your network and even over the Internet while away from home.

    Secure Central Storage

    With terabytes of storage, LinkStation Pro Duo provides a reliable, central location to store and protect all data from every PC and Mac® computer, tablet device and smartphone in your home or small office.
    Store, access and share files from anywhere over your wireless network at speeds up to twice as fast as a standard USB hard drive!

    Automatic Data Protection

    LinkStation Pro Duo features two hard drives and support for RAID 0/1 for maximum capacity or redundant data protection.

    • RAID 0 combines all drives into a single array offering maximum capacity with no redundancy
    • RAID 1 mirrors the two drives, creating an exact copy of data for fault tolerance

    LinkStation Pro Duo Diskless Enclosure features two internal drive bays with RAID 0/1 support when two hard drives are installed. Easily install up to two hard drives and automatically duplicate your data when configured in RAID 1 (hard drives not included). With LinkStation Pro Duo, a second hard drive can be added at any time and the unit can be configured in RAID 1 with no data loss. Easily mirror and protect your data with no time lost.

    Stream Your Favorite Media

    LinkStation Pro Duo is DLNA Certified™, supports Squeezebox® and can be used as an iTunes® server to stream all of your favorite music, movies and shows to multiple devices simultaneously.
    Now you can relax and watch movies on your big screen TV while music is pumped outdoors by the pool. Centralize your media files for simple sharing and streaming.

    Easy Scheduled Backup

    LinkStation Pro Duo features NovaBACKUP® Professional for Windows® and Time Machine® support for Mac for whole home data backup.
    Disaster and hard drive failures happen unexpectedly; don't leave your important files and treasured memories in the hands of chance. Schedule backups for every computer in your house and easily protect all of your data, down to the very last byte.

    Exceptional Performance

    Equipped with a high performance 1.6 GHz processor and DDR3 RAM, LinkStation Pro Duo offers much more than simple home shared storage. This dual drive network storage device boasts transfer speeds up to 72 MB/s, nearly twice as fast as a standard USB drive.

    Free Personal Cloud Service

    While on the go, Buffalo's free WebAccess service allows you to create a personal cloud for easy remote access and file sharing with anyone, anywhere over the Internet. Your data remains securely stored in one place on your home network, but you can access it quickly from any computer, tablet or smartphone device over the Web. Sharing is as easy as sending a link to your friends and family; they can securely access only the files you've selected for them to see.
    For enhanced access on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android devices, download Buffalo's free WebAccess mobile apps.
