External storage solutions are used by companies in all sorts of markets to back up important and critical data. The data may be safe sitting on the external storage device, but in the case of a flood or fire, the data is not safe at all.




IoSafe has a line of rugged external hard drives called the ioSafe Solo line that is water and fire resistant. In the event of a disaster, you send the damaged Solo back the company within the first year of ownership and the company will retrieve the data and send it back to you on a new Solo storage device.


The drive has been available in 500GB, 1TB, and 1.5TB capacities for a while now. IoSafe announced today that the drive is now available in 2TB capacity. The new capacity is available now for $399 online according to the manufacturer. However, it is not on the ioSafe website now and the 1.5TB drive is priced at the same $399 point. Hit up Newegg for the new version if you want one.
