The Rapid Image™ Hard Drive Duplicators are Industrial Hard Disk Duplicators designed to copy 1 "Master" hard drive to up to 19 "Target" hard drives at Fast SATA-III Speeds. It can also be configured to copy multiple Master drives simultaneously. It supports the duplication of up to 10 Master drives simultaneously. The Unit can perform several operations simultaneously including, copying and sanitizing drives at the same time with minimal speed degradation.
High Speed: High-end Processing Power: The Rapid Image™ X2 units come standard with a powerful i7 CPU and are designed to support today's High Performance drives as well as future hard drive speed improvements, using 6Gb/s SAS Controller technology. The units support advanced Duplication Technology that can perform multiple operations simultaneously, copy and wipe drives exceeding 7GB/min with a potential of exceeding 18GB/min.
Hard Drive Support: Offers native support for SAS, SATA and USB 2.0 as well as 3.0 drives. Optional adapters are available to support IDE Drives*, Micro SATA*, e-SATA Drives*, 2.5", 1.8" IDE Notebook Drives*, ZIF drives*, and Flash media*. The unit offers an internal PCIe expansion bus which can be used to expand the unit's capability to support additional drive interfaces such as SCSI and FireWire. *Available for purchase/Optional Adapters Required
Quick Drive Detection: Can detect 20 drives in less than one minute.Versatile "Source" Drive Ports: Flexible design allows any port to be configured as the "Source" port.Cable Free Drive Caddies: The unit is available with either 2.5" or 3.5" Cable-Free Drive Caddies. Both versions support Cable-Free insertion of eight (8) 2.5"/1.8" or 3.5" Form Factor SATA/SAS drives, accordingly.
Multiple Modes of Operation:
IQ Copy: Used to copy only allocated data of Source Drives configured with Windows Based O/S and File Systems, greatly reducing the time required to copy data. IQ Copy supports partition scaling allowing duplication of smaller capacity drives to larger capacity drives.
Percent of Copy: Used to copy a Source drive's allocated data and unallocated data, creating a "mirror" image of the Source drive. O/S and File System independent.
MultiMASSter: Supports storing one or multiple Source drive images on a single 'Target" drive using the Segmented File Format. The format copies both allocated and unallocated data.
VHD Capture: Supports storing one or multiple Source drive images on a single "Target" drive using the VHD File Format. The format copies only allocated data.
WipeOut: Sanitize drives utilizing the DoD Standard, Secure Erase or User Defined Methods. The unit has the ability to copy and wipe Hidden HPA or DCO areas which may exist on hard drives.
Optional* Linux IQCopy: Provides IQCopy Support for the Linux Extended 2 (EXT2), Extended 3 (EXT3) and Extended 4 (EXT4) File Systems.
*Available as an add-on purchase. Multiple Hash Verifications: The Rapid Image™ X2 supports SHA-1 and SHA-2 Hardware Accelerated Hashing and Software based MD-5 Hashing.
Multi-Session Capability: Copy multiple Source drives simultaneously or run multiple operations simultaneously. Multi-Session supports the high-speed duplication of up to 4 Source drives simultaneously. Copy and Sanitize drives at the same time. Units equipped with the 8 Port Add-on Module can support the duplication of up to 8 source drives simultaneously.
External Storage: Images can be stored externally to a Shared Network folder, e-SATA drive or USB drive. Upload and Download Images to Network Storage.
Area: Images files can be uploaded and downloaded to a Network Storage Area allowing the user to take advantage of large storage platforms for the purpose of processing and archiving images. With the use of the Optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection, units can copy and upload at speeds exceeding 4GB/min.
Cable Free Drive Caddies: The unit offers a Cable-Free, Drive Caddy solution for quick and easy drive insertion, minimizing maintenance costs and wear and tear issues associated with use of cables. The unit is available with either 2.5" or 3.5" Cable-Free Drive Caddies. Both versions support Cable-Free insertion of eight (8) 2.5"/1.8" or 3.5" Form Factor SATA/SAS drives, accordingly.
Optional IDE Drive Caddies: IDE Drive Caddies are available for 2.5"/1.8" and 3.5" IDE drives. The IDE Drive Caddies require the use of IDE Data and Power Cables.
Multiple Interface Ports: The unit offers up to 16 native Target SATA/SAS Drive ports, 4 dedicated SATA/SAS Master drive ports, 4 USB 3.0 ports, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. Additionally, the unit is designed with an available internal PCIe expansion bus which can be used to expand the unit's capability to support additional drive interfaces.
Optional PCIe Expansion Cards: The unit is equipped with an internal PCI-e Bus for upgradeability and additional device support. Examples of available PCIe
Controller cards include the following: PCIe SCSI 320Mbit/sec Controller. PCIe FireWire Controller with two (2) 1394B ports and one (1) 1394A port. PCIe Express Card Reader Controller which can be used to connect a broad range of Express Card compliant cards such as Express Card Memory devices (not USB based). PCIe WiFi Controller. PCIe 10 Gigabit Ethernet Card and more.
"On the fly" Drive Image Encryption* and Decryption: Utilizing the built- in AES 256 Encryption Technology the Rapid Image™ IT encrypts with minimal speed degradation all digital data during the Cloning Process for the purpose of safe guarding sensitive information. The Rapid Image™ X2 IT creates a secure key with a user-chosen pass phrase. An AES 256 encryption key is then generated by the unit and can be saved to any USB thumb drive. The encrypted drive can be decrypted on the fly utilizing the Rapid Image™ X2 IT or any regular PC loaded with the ICS free decryption utility and the USB thumb drive containing the saved key. User can then safely image the decrypted data to an additional target drive.
*This process is NOT compatible with the DiskCypher product line.
Convenient and Easy Upgrades: Easily updates Software through the USB port. Free Software Updates are provided periodically. Remote Monitoring and Control Network Application: software that remotely controls and monitors each duplicator that is connected to the network.Logs and Auditing: Store and print detail operational Event Log and Audit Trail information. The Audit Trail is saved in a PDF format using 128-bit password encryption protection.
Barcode Reader Support: Option for Barcode Readers available for production flow integration.
Easy Maintenance: The cable-less insertion mechanism incorporates a small, low cost and easy to replace connector board (SAS/SATA board and IDE board) for every slot.
HPA/DCO Support: The unit has the ability to copy and wipe Hidden HPA or DCO areas which may exist on hard drives
