Keep Data Safe . . . From Anything
ioSafe will be demonstrating ioSafe Solo, an external hard drive that can withstand fire, temperatures up to 1,550 degrees, three days submersed 10 feet in fresh or salt water and pretty much anything else you or Mother Nature can throw its way. The drive connects via standard USB and is available in capacities of up to 1.5 TB, but starts at 500 GB for about $150.
ioSafe even offers a $1,000 data disaster recovery service with "no questions asked."
"Was your ioSafe Solo accidentally dropped in a vat of maple syrup? No problem. While welding your car, you accidentally blow torched your data? These things happen -- we understand," ioSafe says.
At CES, ioSafe has rented a facility a few blocks off the Las Vegas strip and plans to demonstrate the ioSafe solo's resilience with a 1,500-degree fireball and a 10,000-gallon water tank. Let's hope the data doesn't fry.
