ioSafe is the world's leading provider of disaster proof hardware. Established in Auburn, California in 2005, the company made its mark on the industry with the release of the world's first external hard drive to have both fire and flood protection. Responding to the demand from businesses, ioSafe soon followed up with the launch of its fire, flood and impact resistant NAS device, the R4. Today, ioSafe is a part of CRU. However, it continues to design and manufacture innovative, disaster-tolerant data storage solutions that are used by Fortune 500 companies, federal and state agencies, small to midsize businesses, and home users.
This spring, ioSafe introduced its latest Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, the ioSafe 1019+. Based on the Synology DS1019+, this 5-bay NAS can protect up to 70TB of data from fire or water damage in the event of a disaster. Using ioSafe's patented technologies, the 1019+ is able to keep your data secure in temperatures up to 1,550° F for up to 30 minutes. In addition, its waterproof capabilities protect data should the device be submerged in up to 10 feet of water for three days.
Under its multiple layers of protections, the ioSafe 1019+ is powered by a quad-core Intel Celeron processor and is equipped with 8GB of DDR3L RAM, a pair of gigabit Ethernet ports and two M.2 NVMe SSD slots for caching. The 1019+ also runs the latest version of Synology's award-winning DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system which offers a wide range of applications for cross-platform file sharing, data backups, cloud synchronization and multimedia streaming.
