For resellers seeking a disaster-proof NAS solution that's as versatile as it is easy to use, the CRN Test Center recommends the ioSafe 1513+ NAS RAID.

ioSafe's 1513+ is the roughest, toughest NAS appliance on the planet. A fine choice for on-site data protection, it's a top performer and with Synology behind the scenes, it isn't short on features either.
Being a professional photographer, I constantly deal with a large flow of photographs that need to be imported, processed and backed up as part of the workflow process. Although I do everything I can to keep several copies of my photo library on different computers and storage devices, it is still a lot of data to keep track of continuously. Every time I revisit my backup strategy and make changes to it, whether by altering the process or introducing new software or hardware, the thought of potentially losing all of my images scares me to death.

ioSafe specialises in rugged NAS and the 1513 is the biggest and toughest of them all. It also continues ioSafe's relationship with Synology and - much like the ioSafe 214 was based on the Synology DS214 - this new flagship has a Synology DS1513 at its core.
Many companies are in the business of keeping data safe from digital threats like hackers and viruses, but few focus on the physical dangers of storing it on-site. ioSafe built its brand on so-called "disaster-proof" servers and the latest two-bay 214 model strikes the perfect balance of protection and price.
We all know that the best way to protect data from disaster is to back it up and take the backups off site. And the reason of course is that if your office burns down or floods, the very fragile hard drives holding that data will be destroyed along with everything else.
I've looked at a few NAS units before, but generally low end devices. This unit is far from low end, having both advanced management capabilities and superb physical protection.
If you're like me (and basically every photographer I know), you're a little bit paranoid. Your heart skips a beat when you hit "Format" on your memory cards. You don't trust a source unless it's backed up. ioSafe was not originally built for photographers, but it certainly caters to them with a fireproof, water proof and basically life proof design. With the addition of specialized apps, ioSafe looks to be a the way to store and monitor your precious images and video.
You're in good company with ioSafe
