See What Happens when you Set a Drive On Fire

Secure data storage is a necessary practice when digital assets are the lifeblood of your business. A failed hard drive or damaged hardware creates an immense headache. The frustration factor that occurs because of an absent-minded failure to provide data protection can be insufferable.

Fireproof and Waterproof Data Storage

ioSafe is a company that provides secure data storage, data recovery, and provides exceptional data protection with their products. Just how secure are their data storage solutions? They make enclosures that are fireproof and waterproof, and not the "near a smoky barbecue and accidentally hit with a squirt gun" variety. Hopefully no one is keeping their RAIDs next to a barbecue pit or the vicinity of active squirt guns, but accidents do happen. ioSafe is aware that catastrophic accidents do occur and they deliver secure data storage to face those accidents. Their enclosures provide data protection like a bank vault, "in the middle of an inferno and hit with a firehose" type of protection. That definitely rates above the "server room AC is on the fritz" data storage problems.

ioSafe N2 Data Protection

The ioSafe N2 is a fireproof and waterproof, network connected, multi-drive NAS/RAID storage device providing exceptional data protection. There is a lot to like about online data storage that's offered through cloud services, your data isn't in one place, it's redundant and spread out across a network of machines. But does cloud data storage truly provide data protection? There's always the threat that someone else can access it or something could happen to the cloud service. The ioSafe N2 is a data storage solution that sits onsite, providing a local network backup, and is able to survive catastrophic events. This type of protection doesn't come cheap, but it works. When your digital assets are your most valuable assets it's important to have secure data storage. Check out this video in which the ioSafe N2 is put to the test, it's long but pretty amazing.
