From CSI to Elvis, Vegas has a habit of doing particulars in a bold and above the top way, and so it was this at ioSafe’s demonstrate for its fresh solid-state drive-based Solo SSD NAS box outer hard disk.
The first ioSafe Solo NAS outer hard disk was founded above a hard disk, and extended security opposite to fire, flood and crushing damage – the SSD edition assumes this indestructibility at level further.The SSD-founded ioSafe is jjust shock-proof and can manage 20ft (6 metre) drops, thanks to the nature of the solid-state memory machine.
The Solo SSD is also extended for up to 30 days’ submersion in silty, salty or otherwise dirty water up to a depth of 30ft when the hard disk-founded Solo was just covered for submersion in new water up to a depth of 10ft and for just 3 days. The other fresh addition is an eSATA port, which includes additional velocity, if not additional protection.
To show off the fresh security that the Solo SSD extends, ioSafe staged a DemoLition where it would roast, soak, drop and crush a Solo SSD early salvaging the rest and pulling off few information from the disk inner. Few pictures were assuming of the attendees to show there was no pre-managed shenanigans, and these were transferred to the ioSafe SSD. It was then positioned in an a flame-proof chamber, along with a standard hard disk, and roasted.
The Solo SSD was roasted for a excellent 5 minutes, and the pyrometer says 1,511 – we are not confirm if it is 1,511°F, 1,511°C or 1,511 candles' worth of heat, but whatever it was, it was hot. We could not stand much closer than this less our arm-hair and eyebrows beginning to individual!
Observe how the standard hard disk has really caught fire toward the end of out picture story. Later the roasting, the soaking...We asked Robb Moore, the people leading the demonstrate and too CEO of ioSafe, whether the possibility of heat traveling up the Universal Serial Bus; or eSATA cable from the slot was a trouble.
Later all, we thought, that is a metal link from the outside of the Solo housing right into the precious memory machine held inner. Nope - not much heat travels up the wires as they are relatively long.Appeared similar to we had require to search another weak point.
Fire would not do it either; the machine is secured through a stuff ioSafe calls 'DataCast', which is packed among the outer casing and the inner armour-plated unit that keeps the memory machine.
Data Cast is ‘an inert, water-fiounded insulation,’ said Moore, including: ‘The water’s chemically bound inner the insulation, and it just begins to dissipate when the temperature exceeds 160-80 degrees. When that occur, the water disengages, and at above the boiling point of water, it begins to steam.'
