Buffalo Technology is an American manufacturer of storage devices, including network-attached storage, or NAS. A Buffalo NAS sits on the user's network as a node in its own right; it services requests for reading and writing data as it streams in from computers in the network. You can make your Ubuntu Linux computer detect and use a Buffalo NAS for storage.
