The ioSafe 216 is a fireproof and waterproof, network connected, multi-drive NAS/RAID storage device for terabytes of your precious or business data. Designed to be the center of your private cloud, the ioSafe 216 is powered by a Synology DSM motherboard and operating system. It allows for fast access on your local network and remote access from nearly any device connected to the internet - all secured and protected by you. The ioSafe 216 is designed and assembled by ioSafe in California - a data storage company with a vision to protect the world's photos, videos and business data in the vulnerable private cloud.

216 Features

  • Fire Protection
    Protects data from loss up to 1550F for 1/2 hour per ASTM E119

    DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.

  • Private Cloud
    Access your data from anywhere from any device.
    Fast local access (up to 100 MB/sec)

    All your data is in one spot. Fast when you're local and accessible when you're remote with just about any smartphone, tablet or computers. Enjoy virtually an unlimited amount of data storage and accessibility with none of the vulnerabilities and high fees of the public cloud.

  • Water Protection
    Protects data from loss up to 10ft for 72 hours.

    HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or salt water damage, including full immersion. While keeping your data dry, the HydroSafe technology still allows heat to dissipate during normal operation.

  • Redundant Hard Drives (RAID)
    Automatically mirrors and protects against hard drive failure.

    With RAID 1, your hard drives are automatically redundant to guard against a single hard drive failure. The ioSafe 216 can utilize two hard drives up to 4TB each. The drives are hot-swappable in case of failure and will rebuild the volume back to a redundant state upon replacement.

  • Data Recovery Service

    The ultimate safety net for the ultimate NAS, the ioSafe Data Recovery Service (DRS) provides a multi-use, no questions asked data and hardware recovery service. For any loss, no matter the reason, ioSafe will ship, attempt recovery, spend up to $2500 per terabyte on forensic recovery if required and send data back on replacement product. First use of DRS has no deductible. DRS Pro is intended for our Pro-sumer and Business Users by covering the ioSafe device + the connected server or PC with limits up to $5000 per TB.Learn more about the DRS terms and conditions.

  • Active Airflow Cooling

    For optimum operating temperature, FloSafe active airflow cooling technology provides cooling airflow through the enclosure and across the disk drives during normal operating conditions. If destructive heat levels are sensed, such as in a fire, the FloSafe vent is designed to limit and protect your data from the extreme heat.

  • Theft Protection

    First - be creative. You can make this device a part of your wireless network and hide it anywhere inside your house or workplace. Hide it as you might a small safe. Additionally, a Kensington lock slot is standard. An optional floor mount / padlock kit enables the ioSafe 216 to bolt down to any surface or be secured with a cable &dlock. Securing the drive also prevents the drive from moving during a disaster.

    Encrypting data is essential to a healthy security policy. Equipped with a dedicated hardware encryption engine, the ioSafe 216 NAS is the ideal digital locker for sensitive data; files and folders are encrypted on the fly without any perceived performance loss.

How does it work?
The ioSafe 216 connects to your home or business network, preferable at the main router or switch. A network drive (or "share") can be created that allows everyone on the local area network (LAN) with proper permissions to "see" the common drive and share the data. The data can also be made available to the wide area network (WAN - aka the Internet) by allow applications and data to be "forwarded" to the NAS at your router.
