It's a good thing storage keeps getting less expensive because we keep needing more of it. And if you're looking for a desktop Network Attached Storage device, the current crop of NAS appliances should make you happy. Every box we tested worked well, provided boatloads of storage, and many cost less today per terabyte than they did just a few years ago.
I am sure it no surprise to you that I have a huge image archive. I am constantly making back-up copies of the master hard drive array and storing them in various off-site locations to ensure that my images are safe from accidental deletion, virus infection, hardware failure, fire, flood, robbery and anything else that may wipe out my valuable files; they are my life's work and I would be a fool to think they could survive without extreme attention and care.
Many of us keep backups of our data on hard drives, using Apple's Time Machine, but how many of us keep multiple copies? And copies that are protected from not only disk failures, but also natural disaster?
Recently I had every photographers worst nightmare come true — my storage solution stopped being visible to my computer so I feared I had lost 12 TB of images!
Overall, the ioSafe 214 proved to be a superb backup solution. Whether you are a photo enthusiast or a working professional, you should take a serious look at this device. Considering what it can do to save your data alone, its cost is negligible. Once you factor in the Synology DSM architecture with its frequent performance and security updates, superb performance and reliability, the ioSafe 214 becomes a "no-brainer".
When it comes to photography, there are tons of places you can cut corners and save money. Lenses, tripods, cameras, there's always a low cost alternative, but when it comes to photography backups, this is one area you really shouldn't scrimp on.
Using a network attached storage (NAS) appliance to share data is akin to putting all your eggs in one basket - it's great for collaboration, but a single point of failure vulnerable to all manner of risks. Fortunately, most of these risks can be mitigated against.
Financial Times How to Spend it: ioSafe 214
For the sensibly paranoid then, this hefty new external drive from ioSafe, whose outrageously tough and resilient backup products are used by the US Navy, McDonald's, Oracle and Sheraton, among others, and which I have featured in the past both in this column and on Technopolis TV, is almost nirvana.
Perhaps the world won't end in ice, but you can still keep your business data safe.
The ioSafe 214 wraps a speedy, feature-rich Synology storage server in a fireproof, waterproof, and shock-resistant shell.
You're in good company with ioSafe
