Buffalo Technology on Tuesday introduced its LinkStation Mini, a new miniature 1 terabyte (TB) Network Attached Storage System. The device is coming in May for $699, and will soon be joined by a 500GB version.
Other features include Remote Power, which can power up the unit remotely, and Web Access, which lets users access storage anywhere using a Web browser. It can also support UPS devices, so the unit can coordinate a shut down during power outages. It’s DLNA-compatible, so it can stream files through DLNA-compatible players, and it also supports Active Directory. Other protocols supported by the device include FTP, SMB and HTTPS. Buffalo includes Memeo backup software, which is Windows-compatible only.
System requirements for the LinkStation Mini call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later.
