ioSafe has released the “3.5 series”, a range of hard drives for home and business PCs to data centre servers at a price that not only seems pretty reasonable for the protection – but also because it includes up to $2500 in additional data recovery per drive, if needed.
Designed to be used like any other hard drive, they’re being marketed as an extra insurance policy in an uncertain world, and given they’re the first of its kind, it’s pretty impressive.
ioSafe says its new drive is “engineered to protect data from fire (up to 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit or 760 degrees Celsius) and flood (full immersion in fresh or salt water).”
ioSafe have managed to do this by putting a 2.5-inch hard drive into a 3.5-inch disk enclosure, making the size compatible with 3.5-inch drive bays. The space between the 3.5-inch enclosure and the 2.5-inch drive is where the ioSafe protection against fire and water technology lies, while also “resolving heat dissipation issues found in all computer systems.” (link)
