Able to withstand 2000-degrees Fahrenheit for an hour, along with 5000 pounds of dead weight, and water pressure at 30 feet, the enterprise data recorder from Axxana promises synchronous data protection from both earthquakes and terrorists.
Israeli-startup Axxana unveiled its Phoenix system this week, calling it the enterprise equivalent of the airline industry’s “black box.” The 436-pound box is roughly two by three feet, and four feet deep, and contains 73 GB of embedded flash memory. The product overcomes the problem of asynchronous data storage, and touts 100 percent disaster recover, with no data loss, at any distance. After a disaster or attack, data stored inside the box can be accessed through an Ethernet port. If the box can’t be reached, the product can transmit data wirelessly via a 3G or faster wireless network. Promoters say the product solves the problem of recovering 100 percent of data via a disaster recovery system located further than 45 miles away, the current distance limitation of other synchronous data recover products.
