CES 2012 - We ran into the CEO of ioSafe Robb Moore here at CES 2012 in Las Vegas at the Storage Visions show where he gave us a hands-on introduction of their newest baby, the Solo G3.

This is a fairly similar model to the previous Solo models you've seen from ioSafe in the past, but this time a whole load of holes have been added to the navy green colored unit that allows the unit to get by without the need for a cooling fan. Robb noted that this makes the product ideal for noise sensitive installations such as in music studios and such. The Solo G3 also added USB 3.0 for faster backups.

The folks over at ioSafe have been known for some pretty wild CES demonstrations to showcase the toughness of their units and this year apparently will be no different. Without giving away too much, Chris and I are going to be treated to some sort of thunderbolt demo on Day 2 of CES (this coming Wednesday) to help introduce their new product with Thunderbolt interface. Think actual bolts of electricity - we'll do our best to capture it all on video.
