VANCOUVER, Wash. — The data storage company ioSafe is introducing a device for on-site data protection during disasters. 

ioSafe’s 1520+ five-bay network attached storage (NAS) device can protect up to 70 TB of data and up to 210 TB of data with optional bays, according to the company last month.

The device is intended to provide a route to critical data recovery after a disaster, without data center or cloud storage costs.

ioSafe is accepting pre-orders for shipment in February.

The ioSafe 1520+ is designed to keep digital work secure in temperatures up to 1,550 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 30 minutes as well as for up to three days when submerged in up to 10 feet of water. 

The ioSafe 1520+ can also integrate with cloud applications and features offers 256-bit AES encryption, floor-mount kits, and a related data recovery service for lost data.

The 1520+ was developed to offer “data center-class storage,” said Robin Wessel, EVP, ioSafe. 

Wessel said users can recover “the massive amounts of data they generate” when a water leak, wildfire, or “virtually any major disaster occurs.”

The ioSafe 1520+ includes several other features:

  • Four local area network (LAN) ports for network throughput and redundancy
  • Virtual machine support with 8 GB Double Data Rate 4 (DDR4) memory
  • Video transcoding performance with the Intel Celeron J4125 central processing unit (CPU)
  • Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) solid-state drive (SSD) cache support for fast data access

The device also provides subscription-free productivity tools through the Synology DiskStation Manager 7 suite of applications. 

ioSafe storage devices are available through solution-oriented value-added resellers (VARs) and managed service providers (MSPs), serving clients throughout North America and Europe.
