Axxana Phoenix – the bomb proof data protection black box


The Axxana Phoenix is a solid state flash memory disk array which backs up and stores your vital data for you, on site. That’s right no more remote transfer, your data is protected inside your building. How safe is it? Well they’re calling it the toughest data recorder in the world, designed to withstand earthquake style shocks of up to 40 G, and 5000 pounds of pressure (e.g. rubble debris sitting on top).


It will also survive direct flames of 2000 degrees F for one hour (17000 F peak), followed by 450 F for another six hours. Need more? Robust enough to hang tough under 30 feet of water pressure or a piercing with a 500 pound rod dropped from 10 feet. This puppy is TOUGH! Geddit? The thing also comes with a battery pack and antenna so it can beam data from the rubble via either WiFi or 3G, thus ensuring fail safe computing. But does it fight off zombies, we ask? Price = 6 figures expensive.

 The Phoenix System is easy to use and install, connects into the fabric without causing any disruptions and designed to be compatible with all major storage vendors’ replication solutions. It cost effectively transforms any asynchronous replication into a synchronous form, delivering a complete solution that guarantees zero data loss (RPO=0) over any distance at no additional cost or in many cases decreased cost.


  • 6 figures i better keep my data in my head lol

    • Data in your head and wallet in your pocket, Jerm? :)

  • I'd like to see a vid of the hand grenade proofing.

  • …from a distance of course… :)

  • Yeah but can it handle having coffee spilled on it?

  • Actually, it ain't all that hot – just ask the Axxana guys how much data it'll actually protect – answer, "er, not very much"! That's because it's designed to simply preserve the data normally lost during a failover over a Asynchronous link. Confused? you will be. Owing to the latency of Asynch links, if a company fails over from site A to site B, the latncy means that a small amount of data cannot be recovered. The Phoenix is designed to protect this small amount of data to be recovered "at leisure". One thing that should be put to them is the recovery time for getting this data back – it can be hours and according to what I've heard, the battery is not rechargeable so it's anyone's guess if it'll actually work when the "time comes".
