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 Interface Ports: In addition to the native SATA/SAS ports, the unit is also designed with five USB 2.0 ports, and one Gigabit Ethernet connection that allows duplication of USB devices and storing image files to Network Storage media.
Expandability: Expansion Ready units support the use of the Optional IM4000PRO Expansion Box. The IM4000PRO Expansion Box (purchased separately) adds SCSI, Firewire and ExpressCard Interface support. Allows connection of up to 2 Firewire Drives and up to 3 SCSI drives and supports connecting a broad range of ExpressCard compliant cards, such as ExpressCard USB 3.0 cards used to connect USB 3.0 mass storage devices. The IT User can customize the Expansion Box by adding 3rd Party PCIe Cards such 10Gbit NIC Cards to add high speed 10Gbit Network interface support.
Multiple Modes of Operation: IQ Copy -Used to copy only the allocated data of Source drives configured with Windows Based O/S and File Systems, greatly reducing the time required to copy data. IQCopy supports partition scaling allowing duplication of smaller capacity drives to larger capacity drives. Percent Copy - Used to copy a Source drives 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 using the DoD Standard, Secure Erase or User Defined.
Network Storage Support: Upload and Download images to and from a shared Network Storage location using the native 1 Gigabit Ethernet interface. The optional IM4000PRO Expansion Box can be customized by the End User to add High Speed 10Gbit Network* interface support using 3rd Party 10Gbit NIC Cards*. (* Third Party 10Gbit NIC Cards are not supplied by ICS).
USB Duplication: The unit supports duplicating up to 4 USB Target devices.
Linux IQCopy: Provides IQCopy support for the Linux Extended 2 (EXT2), EXT3 and EXT4 File Systems.
On-the-Fly Data Encryption: Built-in DiskCypher technology allows the ability to Encrypt a Source hard drive during copy operations. The IM4000PRO supports the common AES-256 ECB Encryption method.
Multi-Session: Copy multiple Source drives simultaneously or run multiple operations simultaneously. Mult-Session supports duplicating up to 4 Source drives simultaneously. Copy and Sanitize drives at the same time.
