  • 1Description

Equipped with two 1TB enterprise-level NAS hard drives, the ioSafe 218 2TB 2-Bay NAS Array is designed to deliver strong reliability while protecting up to 2TB of data from natural and man-made disasters. It is fireproof up to 1550°F for up to 30 minutes and also protects data from while fully submerged in up to 10' of fresh or salt water for up to 72 hours. Cloud-enabled and powered by Synology's DiskStation Manager operating system, the 218 NAS includes apps for remote access, collaboration, file syncing and sharing, video surveillance, photo management and more.

ioSafe's 218 has two drive bays, each of which natively supports 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz Realtek RTD1296 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously, while 2GB of DDR4 RAM will allow quick access to frequently used files and programs. Also featured are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 2.0 Type-A port which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system.

A variety of RAID modes are supported, which help provide users with data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both. Supported RAID modes include RAID 0, 1, Basic, and Synology Hybrid RAID. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.

ioSafe has engineered this NAS to be energy efficient. Not only does it use a 92 x 92mm fans to help keep the system running cool, the server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operational expenses. The 218 operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 60W AC power adapter, an AC power cord, and an RJ45 LAN cable. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year hardware warranty, along with one year of ioSafe's Pro Data Recovery Service (DRS).
