Rating: 5/5The answer to my Disaster Recovery prayers
This review is from: ioSafe SoloPRO 2TB USB 2.0 / eSATA Fireproof Waterproof External Hard Drive with 3 YR DRS SH2000GB3YR
Pros: This thing is SOLID! It's like picking up a UPS it's so heavy. The mounting holes in back are also a nice touch to help prevent these things from walking-off when they're placed in remote offices. Although I haven't set it in my fireplace to see if the data is recoverable, I have every confidence that it will hold up to anything short of thermite. The videos of ioSafe abusing these things and still being able to access the data are good enough for me.
Functionally, it performs like any other eSATA-connected external hard drive. It's fast, doesn't take forever to transfer GB's of files, and doesn't get those weird $MFT corruption errors that large transfers over USB tends to have.
Other Thoughts: DR always includes some amount of prayer, the amount is usually inversely proportional to the confidence you have in your backups.
As a consultant, this is a dream come true. All my customers are getting one; they practically sell themselves. Just have them hold it and it's a done deal. I've always wanted a disk-based DR solution that didn't require constantly swapping hard drives (which Windows sometimes REALLY doesn't like) or relying solely on tape (which are expensive and constantly break). Although this isn't a complete substitute for off-site data backups in a true DR setup, it's still the best solution I've found that offers the most protection for your data on-site.
