NOTCOT: ioSafe Solo ~ HD's on FIRE!!! (part 1/2) from Jean Aw on Vimeo.

Follow this link to see what happens after IoSafe remove the burnt steel casing of the ioSafe Solo and unwrap the SATA hard drive from its protective shell... did it survive the plunge in the pool, and 30 minutes in a 1550° F degree fire bath?

In all seriousness, it's about time a company introduced a product like this for the average consumer. As all information moves into the digital domain, mitigating loss during a home flood or fire is something a bare hard drive just really cannot do. Data recovery can help in some cases, but PCSTATS has gone down that route and the cost is typically $800-1300 per drive. The IOSafe Solo runs a very affordable $149 for the 500GB model, $199 for 1TB.

Our only lament is that IoSafe do not offer this consumer grade version in RAID 1, or with eSATA and LAN connectivity. The model burned in the video above connects via USB2.0 (which is fast enough) but not as convenient as SATA, and a single drive lacks the data redundancy RAID 1 would bring to the table in addition to its limited fire & flood resistance. For the record it can withstand being submerged in 10' of water for 72hrs, and 1550° F for 30 minutes.

More details and models here. The commercial grade unit is equally worth checking out for those that run their servers from the office, that unit runs about $7,000 though.
