Premiership Football Club buys storage solution to store, access and share critical information
London UK, 24 January 2010 - Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage and wireless networking solutions, today announces it has been selected by Arsenal FC to supply a full storage solution at the Hertfordshire based training ground.
Arsenal FC had been faced with an increasing need for a solution that could keep player information and analysis data protected. After thoroughly investigating all storage solutions, Arsenal installed two of Buffalo’s TeraStation ES Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices.
In addition to the two NAS devices, Arsenal purchased eight MiniStation hard drives with hardware encryption to be used by the football analysis team, the medical staff and the coaches. Buffalo’s high-tech encryption ensures that confidential data remains safe and secure if the drives are ever misplaced or stolen.
Sean O’Connor, Facilities Manager at the Arsenal Training Ground says: “My job is not to manage IT so I really needed a solution that just worked; the TeraStation was easy to set up and configure and was up and running immediately.” The MiniStation’s were also easy to use, he says. “The team love that the portable hard drives are plug-and-play as they can literally just plug them into their laptops and instantly access and upload data. The hardware encryption means that confidential information is fully protected by personal passwords. They are compact and lightweight so data can easily be transported and best of all, they come in red. It was like they were made just for Arsenal.”
Paul Hudson, Sales Director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology comments: “We are pleased to be able to supply yet another organisation with a tangible storage solution. This is a prime example of the importance of data security and how we can meet specific customer requirements in any industry.”
