ioSafe unveils SoloPro USB 3.0 external storage device

ioSafe adds USB 3.0 and eSATA to rugged external storage line

| Storage News | Posted: Aug 18, 2010 4:02 pm

ioSafe has been offering a rugged external storage device for a long time that connects to a computer via USB 2.0. The drive is special because not only is it rugged to survive little spills and bumps in the office on a daily basis, but the thing can withstand catastrophic disasters like floods or fire as well. That means that those irreplaceable digital photos or work documents can be saved even if the drive itself is unusable.




The only real issue that I have ever taken with the ioSafe offering that has been around was the fact that the USB 2.0 connectivity was too slow for large data sets. ioSafe has announced a new version of its external storage solution that has new connectivity methods that will make backing up lots of data much faster. The new ioSafe product is the SoloPro USB 3.0 HDD.


As you can gather for the name, the device has a USB 3.0 port. It also has USB 2.0 connectivity and has an eSATA port, all of which will allow the data backups to the drive to be much faster. The drive offers more connectivity and still keeps the rugged design and promise of data retrieval in the event of a disaster. The SoloPro will be offered in 1TB for $249.99, 1.5TB for $319.99, and 2TB for $419.99. All capacities will ship on September 1.
