ioSafe N2:m The Fire and Waterproof NAS/RAID Storage Solution

The ioSafe N2 is a fireproof and waterproof, network connected, multi-drive NAS/RAID storage device for terabytes of your precious or business data. Designed to be the center of your private cloud, the ioSafe N2 is powered by a Synology DSM motherboard and operating system. It allows for fast access on your local network and remote access from nearly any device connected to the internet - all secured and protected by you. The ioSafe N2 is designed and assembled by ioSafe in California - a data storage company with a vision to protect the world's photos, videos and business data in the vulnerable private cloud.

It's all about you. Your data. Your stuff. All of it.

The ioSafe N2 is the first disaster-proof private cloud device of it's kind. Like an aircraft black box for your data, the N2 is designed to protect and secure terabytes of the most precious data on the planet - your data.

The Cloud Problem: Slow, Pricey and Insecure

If you have 20-30 GB to protect, the public cloud is an option. If you have terabytes to store, the traditional public cloud breaks down quickly.

Speed

Moving a terabyte online can take months. Three or four terabytes? Fuggedaboutit! Months to upload and months to download. It's faster to ship a hard drive across the country than to try to stream the data across the internet. The situation is only getting worse as data growth will continue to exceed bandwidth over the foreseeable future. It's the equivalent of pushing the Pacific Ocean through a garden hose.

Cost

To store a couple of terabytes on Amazon's S3 Storage over three years will cost over $8000. Granted Mozy, Carbonite or Backblaze combined with Dropbox can be a fantastic setup if (1) you don't have terabytes of data and (2) you don't have them on a NAS and (3) you don't care about disaster recovery for all your programs or OS in addition to your data.

Security

No one in the public cloud cares as much about your data as you do. Information gets hacked, deleted and compromised in the public cloud as the biggest databases represent the juiciest targets for hackers. Staying in control of how your local data is stored, accessed and managed is an excellent way to avoid risks of the public cloud.

Private Cloud

The private cloud (aka NAS with cloud-like applications: picture sharing, music streaming and file syncing) can help solve the speed and security issues associated with the public cloud. It's fast when you're local and accessible when you're remote. The security is set by you and only you: simply pull the plug out of the wall if you want to completely lock out all external access to your data. Once your data is out in the public cloud, you lose control over how or where your data is stored. It will invariably get replicated across the internet and can never be made completely secure again.

Disaster Recovery (DR) for the private cloud?

Streaming your data offsite for disaster protection is slow and is fraught with unknown risks regarding your service provider's policies and employees. Trying to replicate onsite and then physically move the data offsite for DR is a daily hassle and expense. You risk losing the data through human error, an unlocked car, disgruntled employee, etc. - bad things happen. Streaming or syncing terabytes online leads straight back to the public cloud's cost and bandwidth issues.

The ioSafe Solution...

ioSafe protects from natural disaster by wrapping its patented protection technology around vulnerable private cloud data - onsite. You get fast local access, redundant hard drives, security, nearly unlimited storage, cloud convenience, access to the data with virtually any device and onsite protection against natural disasters. It's a beautiful thing - digital Nirvana.

You can use our solution alone or in conjunction with your existing backup and DR practices if you have any already in place. Every situation is special and this technology is meant as a tool for you to use to reduce your vulnerability. There is simply no other single solution available with all the advantages of the ioSafe N2 for speed, flexibility, cost and disaster recovery.

Features

Fire Protection: Protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour per ASTM E119.

DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.

Private Cloud: Access your data from anywhere from any device.

Fast local access (up to 100 MB/sec). All your data is in one spot. Fast when you're local and accessible when you're remote with just about any smartphone, tablet or computers. Enjoy virtually an unlimited amount of data storage and accessibility with none of the vulnerabilities and high fees of the public cloud.

Water Protection: Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours.

HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.

Redundant Hard Drives (RAID): Automatically mirrors and protects against hard drive failure.

With RAID 1, your hard drives are automatically redundant to guard against a single hard drive failure. The N2 can utilize two hard drives up to 4TB each. The drives are hot-swappable in case of failure and will rebuild the volume back to a redundant state upon replacement.

Data Recovery Service

The ultimate safety net for the ultimate NAS, the ioSafe Data Recovery Service (DRS) provides a multi-use, no questions asked data and hardware recovery service. For any loss, no matter the reason, ioSafe will ship, attempt recovery, spend up to $2500 per terabyte on forensic recovery if required and send data back on replacement product. First use of DRS has no deductible. DRS Pro is intended for our Pro-sumer and Business Users by covering the ioSafe device + the connected server or PC with limits up to $5000 per TB. Learn more about the DRS terms and conditions.

Active Airflow Cooling

For optimum operating temperature, FloSafe active airflow cooling technology provides cooling airflow through the enclosure and across the disk drives during normal operating conditions. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vent is designed to limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.

Theft Protection

First - be creative. You can make this device a part of your wireless network and hide it anywhere inside your house or workplace. Hide it as you might a small safe. Additionally, a Kensington lock slot is standard. An Optional Floor Mount / Padlock Kit (shipping in January 2013) will enable the N2 to bolt down to any surface or be secured with a cable & padlock. Securing the drive also prevents the drive from moving during a disaster.

World Class Apps

Apps make all the difference. We teamed with Synology to bring you world class DSM apps and operating system. Apps for backup, management, multimedia, productivity and surveillance.

  • File Station makes sharing and managing files easier and safer than ever. You can create folders, copy and delete files in between your PC and ioSafe N2; when you accidentally delete a file it can be easily restored in the recycle bin. For businesses, File Station can boost productivity with support for Google Docs, Windows ACL, speed limit for individual users, and many more.
  • Media Server can easily connect those devices such as TV sets and stereo systems to your home network, and stream multimedia files stored on DiskStation to the devices to enjoy music, photos, and videos.
  • Photo Station is an online photo album integrated with a blog for you to easily share photos with friends and family.
  • Cloud Station is a file sharing service that specializes in file syncing between the ioSafe N2, PCs and Macs. Works like Dropbox but with none of the monthly fees or limitations.

How does it work?

The ioSafe N2 connects to your home or business network, preferable at the main router or switch. A network drive (or "share") can be created that allows everyone on the local area network (LAN) with proper permissions to "see" the common drive and share the data. The data can also be made available to the wide area network (WAN - aka the Internet) by allow applications and data to be "forwarded" to the NAS at your router.
