If you work in a hazardous area, or live in a place that’s prone to accidents, it’s important you you’re your data backed up – especially if you work with important files. While the cloud is a good alternative for storage, what do you do if you have loads of files that you need to transfer on a daily basis? Uploading a few hundred gigs of data is going to be very time consuming, not to mention bandwidth wasting as well.
And that’s what ioSafe’s SoloPRO is designed to do – keep your data backed up and leave you with a peace of mind. They’ve just announced an upgrade to their SoloPRO external hard drives. In case you didn’t know, ioSafe SoloPRO drives are designed to be tough – really tough. The SoloPRO is fireproof (it can withstand heat up to 1550° F for 30 minutes. It is also waterproof – it can be submerged underwater at 10 feet for 3 days. With 3TB of space, it’s going to take awhile for you to fill it up as well.
The ioSafe SoloPRO has both eSATA and USB3.0 connections for high-speed data transfer. The 3TB variant is now on sale for $499.99, which includes 12 months of data recover service (in the rare event that the drive does get damaged/destroyed/fails) that can be upgraded to 3 years ($49) or 5 years ($99).
