CES 2014 - ioSafe Continues to Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse

ioSafe is one of the leading companies when it comes to private cloud storage. They building some of the largest, easiest to use NAS units you can buy; however, their true claim to fame is their focus on building disaster proof storage solutions. In fact, during Michael's review of an ioSafe hard drive, he baked it in an oven and submerged it in water and it still worked. This year at CES 2014, ioSafe will be showing off their new NAS 1513+ powered by Synology.


The new ioSafe NAS 1513+ comes in 5 to 15 drive bays (for up to 90 TB of storage), powered by a dual-core Intel Atom CPU at 2.13 GHz, comes with 2 GB of RAM (expandable up to 4), and boast performance up to 350.9 MB/s with standard mechanical HDDs. The prices for the diskless unit starts at $1599.99 MSRP, but it also comes with support for everything from visualization to automatic off-site backups through DRS Pro for $2.99 per month per TB.

It seems like every year ioSafe comes to CES, they want to take one of their NAS units and set it on fire or expose it to the power of a lightning bolt. They say it is to demonstrate how durable their products are. We say they just enjoy playing with powerful and awesome toys. Either way we are sure this year will be no different and we can't wait to see what they have in store. You can find out more about the NAS designed to out-live you below.

ioSafe ® Announces the ioSafe NAS 1513+ Powered By Synology

A 5 to 15 Drive Bay Disaster - Proof Network Attached Storage Solution for Private Cloud Data Storage

January  6,  2013 - ioSafe ®  aims  to  expand  its  product  line  to  secure  and  protect  up  to  90  TB  of  data per  system  with  the  new  ioSafe  NAS  1513+,  a  disaster  proof  network  attached  storage  (NAS)  appliance  powered  by Synology ®  DiskStation  Manager  (DSM).  Aimed  at  business  and  pro-­‐sumer  markets,  the  ioSafe  1513+  can  store  and protect  massive  data  volumes  and  serve  the  data  privately  while  bypassing  expensive,  vulnerable  and  slow  public cloud  options  –  like  an aircraft  black  box  for  network  data.

The  ioSafe  1513+  provides  hardened  data  storage  through  a  5-bay  main  chassis  combined  with  two  optional  5-­‐bay expansion  modules  for  up  to  15  drive  bays  per  system.  Designed  to  provide  all  the  benefits  of  the  private  cloud  with fast  local  transfer  speeds,  the  new  NAS  can  be  configured  to  have  none  of  the  security  risks  and  privacy  issues associated  the  public  cloud  yet  still  protect  data  from  natural  disasters  like  fires  and  floods.  Massive  video,  audio  or data  libraries  can  be  secured  locally  and  instantly  be  made  available  to  remote  workforce  or  clients  as  required.  All security  systems  and  access  are  100%  controlled  by  the  end-user  without  any  third-party  cloud  providers.

The  high  performance  ioSafe  1513+  will  be  equipped  with  a  2.13GHz  Dual  Core  Intel  Atom  CPU  and  2GB  of  memory, expandable  up  to  4GB.  The  ioSafe  1513+  utilizes  ioSafe’s  patented  DataCast,  HydroSafe  and  FloSafe  technologies  to protect  data  from  loss  in  fire  up  to  1550°F  and  submersion  in  fresh  or  salt  water  up  to  a  10  foot  depth  for  3  days.

Performance  will  be  202.3  MB/s  Write  and  350.9  MB/s  Read  –  plenty  of  speed  for  hundreds  of  office  users, visualization,  SANs,  backup,  disaster  recovery,  video  surveillance  systems,  heavy  use  graphics  or  audio  installations.

"We're  excited  about  the  continued  partnership  with  ioSafe.  Protected  with  ioSafe's  technology  and  the  award - winning  Synology  DiskStation  Manager  the  ioSafe  1513+  builds  secure  private  clouds  for  businesses  of  all  sizes, allowing  them  to  share  and  synchronize  data  around  the  world"  says  Vic  Hsu,  CEO  of  Synology  Inc.
