Buffalo TeraStation
Learn how to backup your Buffalo TeraStation NAS device to Filebase.

What is Buffalo TeraStation?

Buffalo TeraStation is a suite of Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices used for storing and keeping local or onsite backups of data. NAS devices come in many sizes and configurations, both for home users and enterprise level data storage. While they are important pieces of disaster and data recovery plans, if something were to destroy or corrupt the NAS device, the data stored on it would be lost. Therefore, backing up your NAS device to a form of offsite, cloud storage is just as important to your disaster or data recovery plan.
Buffalo TeraStation is certified for use with Filebase. Read below for steps to configure your Buffalo TeraStation device for backups to Filebase.

Prerequisites:

  • Download and install the Buffalo TeraStation software on your Buffalo TeraStation device.
  • Sign up for a free Filebase account.
  • Have your Filebase Access and Secret Keys. Learn how to view your access keys here.
  • Create a Filebase Bucket. Learn how to create a bucket here.
