Having a NAS (network attached storage) device in your home is a smart solution for backup, but it’s far from all you need. Obviously, in the event of a disaster like fire or flood, not only can your home computers be wiped out, but in-home backup will be gone along with it. Now ioSafe is looking to solve that problem with a new piece of hardware that is being billed as “disaster-proof”.
The ioSafe N2 is both fire and water-proof storage for the home and small business. The hardware can store up to 8 terabytes of content, contains a 2 GHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, gigabit ethernet, USB 3.0, SD memory card slot, provides local and remote access and can be used as a media server and email server.
The product is being brought to market via a crowd-funding site called Indiegogo. “Interesting point to note: the NAS project is to be funded via crowd-funding site Indiegogo. ioSafe is a small, 20-person company and this will help with the costs of bringing the product to market.”
To find out more, you can head over to ioSafe. I still recommend a second, cloud-based, storage solution for a fail-safe, but you can certainly rest a bit easier with the ioSafe N2 in your home or office.
