We’ve talked about the ioSafe range of semi-indestructible hard drives before, and as well as increasing the storage capacity to 2TB they’ve now changed gears and are offering solid state external hard drives. The ioSafe Solo SSD gives you the same 30 minute 1550°F fire protection and 30 day water immersion protection in up to 30 ft of water (non-operating). The hard drive comes in a range of sizes up to 256GB and there’s the addition of eSATA connectivity on top of the USB 2.0. They have also made improvements especially for earthquake zones. The casing of the Solo is 1/4″ armour plate that can survive a 1000 g shock, a 6 metre drop onto rubble, or 2.7 tonnes of crushing force on any axis. There are four versions of the Solo SSD US$499 for 64GB, US$749 for 128GB and US$1250 for 256GB.
The ioSafe Solo SSD solid state external hard drive brings unparalleled protection, reliability, innovation and value to the disaster proof hardware world.
