aleratec_hdd_copy_cruiser.pngAleratec today introduced the 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA hard drive duplicator. This tower disk duplicator and sanitizer is compatible with both IDE and SATA hard disk drives and has more than double the capacity of Aleratec’s popular 1:5 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA, giving users the ability to finish their large duplication or sanitization jobs even faster.

The 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA is a powerful, standalone hard disk drive duplicator. It can create up to 11 perfect hard drives clones simultaneously by performing a sector-by-sector copy from a single source hard disk to up to 11 target drives. This copy includes partition and boot sector information for a perfect clone. When a sector-level copy is not required, the 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA can also do file-level copies for supported file formats, which can save a significant amount of time.

It can also reliably wipe all traces of data from up to 12 hard disk drives at a time using Secure Erase, a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-88 approved method for clearing hard disks. This feature uses fast, secure algorithms created by the drive manufacturer and is built into most modern SATA hard drives as well as some IDE hard drives. If Secure Erase is not supported, the 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA can still sanitize drives with a choice of three comprehensive overwrite algorithms: a one-pass wipe, a three-pass wipe with verify, or a powerful seven-pass wipe which follows the Department of Defense 5220.22-M sanitization recommendation.

The 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser is compatible with 2.5" and 3.5" internal SATA hard disk drives, as well as 3.5" internal IDE hard drives. It will even work with 2.5" internal IDE hard drives when used with optional adapters (Product Number 350116), sold separately. It is also compatible with mSATA SSDs, Compact Flash (CF) Cards, CFast Cards and 1.8" MicroSATA SSDs with Aleratec adapters (part numbers 350118, 350119, 350120, 350122), not included.

For the ultimate in flexibility, you can copy from either a SATA or an IDE source drive to any combination of SATA and IDE targets. You can also sanitize any combination of SATA and IDE drives at the same time.

"The Aleratec 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA was designed for our customers who want a high-volume duplicator and sanitizer that works with both IDE and SATA hard drives,” says Perry Solomon, Aleratec’s President and CEO. “The increased capacity of this model combined with many advanced features delivers both the high productivity and high quality results that our Prosumer customers demand.”

Its combined duplication and sanitization capacities make the 1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser IDE/SATA an essential tool for building, upgrading and decommissioning computer systems. It also requires no computer or extra software to run. With all of these advanced features, this duplicator and sanitizer is the perfect tool for IT departments, businesses and government agencies in need of a reliable and complete solution for hard disk drive management.
