Aleratec’s USB HDD Copy Cruiser and USB HDD Copy Towers take versatility to a whole new level.
by Perry Solomon
Most of us at one time or another have made that fateful purchase of a product that, as it turned out, was compatible with every type of device with exception of the one you own. Adding useful, new compatibility was a focal point for Aleratec engineers when we designed our new USB HDD Copy Cruiser SA and USB HDD Copy Tower SA family, which is why you’ll see all three units work with USB-connected 2.5” external hard drives and SSD drives.
Before design and engineering phases began, we surveyed end users for input and asked what features they would like to see on future Aleratec USB flash drive duplicators. Time after time, the ability to work with external hard drives was the number one requested feature. In other words, make a USB duplicator that not only clones USB flash drives but also works with 2.5-inch USB-connected external hard drives and USB-connected external solid state drives as well. And while you’re at it, include sanitization functions. A tall order. Fortunately, Aleratec engineers are adaptable.
USB Flash Drives and More
Three models in the new series include the 1:7 USB HDD Copy Cruiser SA, the 1:23 USB HDD Copy Tower SA and the 1:31 USB HDD Copy Tower SA for fast duplication of 7, 23 or 31 flash drives at a time. Not only do these powerful stand-alone duplicators copy or compare multiple USB flash drives, they are compatible with USB-connected 2.5-inch external hard drives and solid state drives, making these units a turnkey solution for IT professionals. But we didn’t stop there.
Sanitization of 2.5-inch External Hard Drives
In addition to making perfect clones, the USB HDD Copy Cruiser and USB Copy Tower SA family includes sanitization functions that remove all traces of information from traditional 2.5-inch external hard drives, and users can choose 1-Pass, 3-Pass, or DoD 7-Pass Overwrite functions. Hard drives sanitized by Aleratec’s 7-pass wipe have been verified by a leader in forensic data recovery as being forensically unrecoverable and as meeting NIST 800-88 standards for sanitization.
Popular Brands Supported
Aleratec’s USB HDD Copy Cruiser and USB Copy Tower SA family supports most popular brands of USB 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 flash drives and USB-connected 2.5-inch external hard disk drives and solid state drives, so you won’t find yourself on the frustrating end of the compatibility factor, and all three units are stand-alone and operate without the need of a computer.
