Fireproof Data Storage Design
The Achilles heel for electronic devices is cooling. As electronics get faster and hard drive disks spin faster, the heat generated increases. To protect electronics from a disaster such as fire, however, you need insulation. Once insulation is placed around an electronic component, even with a very small amount of energy, the inside temperature can get incredibly hot. To solve this problem, ioSafe developed and patented several technologies.
All ioSafe products are fireproof and can keep your data safe through the use of ioSafe's patented FloSafe vent technology, proprietary DataCast insulation or patent-pending MirrorGuard technology. Key to these technologies is the ability to protect your data automatically and with out electrical power. Some or all of these technologies are included in ioSafe products.
- FloSafe - The patented FloSafe cooling vent technology provides cooling air flow 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 vents automatically close and protect the data from the extreme heat.
- DataCast - The proprietary DataCast endothermic insulation technology protects data from extreme heat. . The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperature above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit. This enables the ioSafe data storage product to protect your data from heat damage while the unit is engulfed in fire.
- MirrorGuard - The patent-pending MirrorGuard technology used in our ioSafe 3.5 internal hard drive line provides a reflective heat shield to deflect over 98 percent of the radiant heat from a fire, thus preventing destruction of the data stored within the device.
ioSafe products can be used in many configurations to increase your data's chances of survival. Let us help you configure a system that is right for your disaster recovery strategy. Protect your digital assets today. Strengthen your business resiliency for the future.
