The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS IT Enterprise Super Kit from ICS is controlled via a touchscreen and offers IT professionals the ability to simultaneously capture from two source hard drives to two destination hard drives using SATA III 6 Gb/s technology at speeds up to 7 GB/minute. It can also capture from one source hard drive and transfer the data to up to three destination hard drives. SAS, SATA, eSATA, USB 3.0, and FireWire drives are natively supported, operations are powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, and drive copies are authenticated with SHA or MD5 algorithms. Also supported are IDE and a variety of flash media, while an included Expansion Box adds support for SCSI drives and also includes an ExpressCard 34/54 reader. For those who require Fibre Channel support, the Expansion Box can be modified using a separate Fibre Channel Control Card.
When a source drive is copied to an destination drive, the data can be saved using IQCopy mode, which copies only allocated files, Percent of Disk, which copies all sectors including unused ones and supports any operating system, Multi-MASSter, which allows for the duplication of stored images of hard drives, and VHD Capture which allows the storing multiple images in a single destination drive or shared network folder. All destination drives can also be encrypted on-the-fly during the acquisition phase to help protect sensitive data during transportation or storage. Gigabit Ethernet connectivity is also offered, allowing users to upload drive images to a Storage Area Network (SAN) for processing and archiving. For those who require 3rd party application support, the unit supports installation of these apps.
The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS operates using the Windows operating system. Included with this drive acquisition unit are four SAS data cables and power cables, an IDE to SAS adapter kit, a 2.5" drive adapter, a 150W power supply, a power cord, and a touch pen. Additionally, the Super Kit configuration also includes an expansion box configured with a 1394 / SCSI / PCIe card reader, a mini USB mouse, a mini-USB keyboard, a 4-port mini-USB 2.0 hub, mini speakers with jack headphones, a Wi-Fi USB 2.0 adapter, a DVD drive with an eSATA connection, a LinkMASSter option for seizing data from unopened laptops, and a LinkMASSter MAC option.
