iodyne has launched its flagship product: the all-new Pro Data. It’s the fastest Thunderbolt storage for M1 Macs, and works with every computer that includes a Thunderbolt port. Built by an expert team of hardware and software veterans, Pro Data delivers revolutionary fast, durable storage that’s flexible and simple to use. About Pro Data Pro users such as video, photo and audio creators and software developers need a combination of cloud services and ultra-fast, reliable local storage for their most complex projects. And for the past decade, Pros have been forced to choose between small but fast internal or external SSDs, or big, slow and bulky hard-disk RAID arrays. The most complex projects often require both types of storage combined in a single configuration, along with cloud services and backups. Pro Data is the first all-NVMe all-SSD Thunderbolt RAID device that combines 12 NVMe SSDs and eight Thunderbolt ports in a single elegant form factor. Pro Data allows Pros to get their work done faster, rethink workflows and setups, and simplify how they protect their most important assets. Pro Data is incredibly powerful, with breakthrough Thunderbolt storage performance up to 5 GB/s. It’s the fastest Thunderbolt storage for M1 Macs, and the fastest Thunderbolt storage available for any computer. For the first time, multiple Thunderbolt connections can be combined transparently to boost performance using iodyne’s breakthrough Thunderbolt NVMe Multipathing design. And creative assets are seamlessly protected at all times, using transactional RAID-6, checksums, and encryption worthy of the most powerful enterprise storage devices. Pro Data has incredible capacity, with storage capacities of 12TB and 24TB. It’s up to 3x the storage capacity of the largest built-in SSDs available in computers today. With the flexibility of Thunderbolt daisy-chaining and iodyne’s four independent Thunderbolt port pairs, many Pro Data devices can be connected to a single computer, for almost infinite expansion. Media professionals working with huge image files, 4K and 6K video resolutions, multi-hour music scores, vast photographic collections, and vast software projects, can store all the assets for the most complex projects on Pro Data. And Pro Data is compatible with existing filesystems and applications. Pro Data supports connecting up to four computers simultaneously, and dividing its unique NVMe SSD storage pool into distinct and dynamic containers with configurable passwords, encryption keys, RAID levels, and filesystem formats. Using iodyne’s breakthrough Storage Handoff technology, containers can be handed off in real time between collaborating computers in a workgroup with one click. Data in containers is encrypted using a hardware Secure Enclave for key storage, and optionally password-protected to prevent unauthorized access. Pro Data combines incredible flexibility and breakthrough features with a simple, native and elegant macOS user interface for managing all of its powerful features. Designed for Repair iodyne Pro Data is uniquely Designed for Repair through a combination of industrial design considerations, product technologies, the iodyne Cloud, a free Extended Warranty, and open repair documentation. iodyne knows that investment in data storage lasts far beyond the lifetime of an individual computer. Pro Data’s service panel unlocks with two standard screws and allows easy access and replacement of all the individual SSDs. iodyne’s software provides remote telemetry on storage health back to the iodyne Cloud, which then dispatches spare parts automatically when needed. Users are empowered to repair their own devices, with all data protected by transactional RAID-6, and automatically refreshed and protected before, during, and after repairs. About iodyne iodyne is dedicated to providing Pro users with the absolute best technology and tools to manage their most important creative assets. After more than 20 years designing some of the industry’s leading enterprise storage systems, including the revolutionary ZFS filesystem, industry-first Hybrid Disk/SSD ZFS Storage System, NVMe Fabrics protocol, industry-first NVMe pooled storage and industry-first 100GB/s DSSD Storage System, iodyne’s founders Mike Shapiro and Jeff Bonwick have created a company to bring breakthrough storage technologies to Pro desktops and workgroups.
