For simple and secure data storage, the ProStorage Anti-Static Protective Case for 24 HDDs from Image Mechanics is designed to hold any 3.5" IDE/ATA/SATA bare HDD, fits into a 2-drawer file cabinet or half banker's box, and is made from closed-cell foam and provides ESD and shock protection. With this very budget-friendly system you can get outstanding storage capacity and lifespan from your drives when stored offline in F.O.A.M. rather than constantly running in a traditional archive system.
When you need something stored in F.O.A.M, just open the file cabinet, pull out the hard drive and drop it into the Dual Dock 2 slot (sold separately) or any SATA drive bay and it is ready to go. One F.O.A.M. insert can safely store up to 24 bare hard drives, and with that concentration of storage capacity and low-cost materials you could end up saving hundreds over the extended-life of your drives.
When using F.O.A.M, it also won't be nearly as easy for someone to walk away with your important data, because it will have been stored in a locked file cabinet or "Banker's box"--becoming very cumbersome or impenetrable for the would-be thief. You are also not forced to purchase a custom-fitted enclosure just to use F.O.A.M. because it has been designed and created for convenient versatility. When using the F.O.A.M system, images and critical data can now be stored safely, reliably and inexpensively without any hassle.
