    ioSafe today announced the availability of the new ioSafe Solo SSD - a solid state, highly ruggedized model of the award-winning ioSafe Solo desktop external hard drive. Combining ioSafe's new proprietary ArmorPlate, a military grade steel outer casing with SSD technology, the new ioSafe Solo SSD adds unprecedented shock, drop and crush protection to the existing fire and water protection.

    The ioSafe Solo SSD combined with ArmorPlate helps to protect data in a two story building collapse, 5000 lb. crush forces, 20' drop into rubble and up to a 1000g shock. In addition the original HydroSafe, FloSafe and DataCast work to keep the drive cool during normal operation and protect the data from fires up to 1550 °F for 1/2 hour and complete water submersion of 30' for 30 days in fresh or salt water. Like all ioSafe products, the ioSafe Solo SSD comes with ioSafe's Data Recovery Service, a "no questions asked" policy to help customers recover from any data disaster including accidental deletion, virus or physical disaster.

    "The new ioSafe Solo SSD is the world's most rugged and versatile desktop external hard drive. In addition to the USB interface, the new eSATA connection allows for fast data transfers and full compatibility with almost any Microsoft, MS Server, Linux or Mac operating system. The ioSafe Solo SSD can be used alone or in conjunction with any offsite or online backup strategy to add real time, zero data loss, synchronous disaster protection to any data that sits vulnerable," said ioSafe CEO, Robb Moore. "Businesses, especially small businesses, struggle with disaster recovery and regulatory compliance such as HIPAA, PCI or Sarbanes Oxley, can use ioSafe hardware to add simple, inexpensive and secure protection. The ioSafe Solo is one of the easiest, fastest and least expensive ways to protect your data."

    Pricing and availability
    Prices are $499 for 64 GB, $749 for 128 GB and $1250 for 256 GB. The ioSafe Solo SSD will be shipping in February 2010 and available through the ioSafe website, www.hddfiresafe.com, Ingram Micro and international distributors.

    I really wish the cost of SSDs would come down.

    the SSD will likely wear out and die before that enclosure does

    Drill a hole through a safe, route data and power cables through... plug hole with fireproof silicon. Put SSD in and enjoy.

    Not as pretty as this, but much cheaper :)

    OMG! DISASTER! SSD failed! What do I do? Too bad it doesnt provide failsafe for failing harddisks, the most common cause of disaster other than data recovery service which I am sure is a lengthy process.

    I have backups run to a RADI 5 that sends out a alert to me if failure occurs, back that up to a one touch 300Gb that cost a ciouple hundred, and that goes into a a fire/water/EMP proof safe in a special cubby hole for it.



    Much cheaper.
