Eliminates the need for Cloud Backup Storage
This review is from: ioSafe SOLO PRO 4TB USB 2.0 / eSATA 3.5" External Hard Drive with Fireproof / Waterproof SH4000GB1YR
Pros: We have been deploying ioSafe Solo G3s and ioSafe Solo Pros at our customers' locations for the last year or two. Prior to this product, we had to implement two backup solutions: 1). On site tape backup solution and 2). cloud backup solution. Tape backups usually cost $1000+ cost of tapes, which need replaced every few years. Cloud backup solutions cost monthly ranging from $10-$1000 depending on how many GB of data you are backing up.
Cons: There is not a rackmount solution at this time. I would really like to see a line of SAN/NAS 2U or 3U rackmount RAID arrays that are fireproof/waterproof. Would be perfect for some of our larger enterprise customers who have 20-40TB of data and no real good way to back it all up.
Other Thoughts: For situations requiring an eSATA port, such as for directly connecting to an ESXi server, this is the correct product. If you're going to be using USB3.0 to connect to a Windows or Apple based server, the G3 is probably the way to go. Both work wonderfully.
