For those who need disaster recovery protocols put into place, the new ioSafe 2TB hard drive is your best friend. The USB hard drive is both water proof and fire proof making it the most durable drive on the market, and essential for disaster recovery mandates.
I can tell you one thing, seeing is believing. Check out this 2 minute video where the ioSafe is getting wet and wild and then dried off at over 1,500 degrees.
The USB hard drive ioSafe can be submersed in water for 3 days without damage to the digital content.
The ioSafe USB hard drive can withstand fire excess of 1,500 degrees for over 15 minutes without damage to the digital content. So how do they do it? Judging from the video above, it appears ioSafe puts the internal hard drive into some sort of patented sleeve that can withstand both water and heat.
In the event you do have a disaster you will return the box to ioSafe and they will uninstall the hard drive and recovery your precious content.
The ioSafe weighs 15 pounds and will sell for around $300. You can currently get the 1.5TB on sale now through online retailers like Amazon.
For business, the ioSafe Solo hard drive is a great way to protect customer databases or to secure regulated information including patient records (HIPAA, Sox, etc) or credit card information (PCI regulated). Businesses use the Solo hard drive as a backup and storage device, no longer worrying about data loss from moving computer tapes and files offsite.
