Followers of the Aleratec blog know that I often reflect on technology and how much it changes day to day and year to year. It’s the “nature” of tech products to evolve quickly and adapt to new environments with smaller, more powerful components than predecessors of the past, and this fact is not lost in the world of hard disk drive duplicators and sanitizers. Building smaller, more robust machines is part of the landscape, and our new 1:5 HDD Copy Dock Advanced stand-alone HDD duplicator is the next step in the evolutionary chain.
Powerful and portable, the 1:5 HDD Copy Dock Advanced supports 2.5” and 3.5″ SATA HDDs and SSDs and can clone five hard disk drive simultaneously without the need of a computer. However, what makes this product truly unique is that it includes full-sized duplicating and sanitization functions once possible only in larger duplicators—no easy task considering the size of this petite little powerhouse.
Towering Features with a Small Footprint
Measuring only 8.8″ x 13″ x 5.3″, the 1:5 HDD Copy Dock Advanced is remarkably versatile for its size. Not only does
it produce perfect sector-by-sector copies of up to five hard disk drives simultaneously, including boot sector and partition information, unlike other duplicators with similarly small form factors, this unit includes 1-Pass, 3-Pass or DoD 7-Pass sanitization overwrite functions that remove all traces of data on the drives. As with many of our higher-end hard drive duplicators, the 7-Pass overwrite is certified “forensically unrecoverable” by a third-party recovery specialist. Additionally, the unit can perform NIST 800-88 recommended Secure Erase on the source drive. Versatility is wired into the DNA of the 1:5 HDD Copy Dock Advanced, and in addition to HDD duplication and sanitization, it also serves as a high speed hard drive docking station for accessing data on up to five hard disk drives at a time using eSATA or USB 3.0 technology (and yes, the eSATA and USB cables are included). You can even copy from larger hard drives to smaller hard drives (up to four partitions), and it’s compatible with CF memory, CFast memory and mSATA solid state drives with the purchase of optional adaptors.
If I sound proud to introduce our newest HDD duplicator and sanitizer, I am. After years in the tech industry, I understand what a product like this means and how it can change the direction of products to come.
