5 out of 5 eggsEliminates the need for Cloud Backup Storage

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.

But with this product, we can do our in house backup directly to the ioSafe hard drive (as opposed to tapes) and these hard drives are protected against disasters (eliminating the need for the external cloud solution.) This device pays for itself over and over again.

We have been able to use the backups to restore files that were accidentally deleted by end users. Furthermore, we've already experienced the disaster recovery features first hand. One of our customers were flooded this spring and lost much of their equipment. The backup drive survived and we were able to get them up and running within a couple days. Don't know what we would have done without ioSafe.

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.
