Press Release 1:16 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed

Aleratec Adds 16-Target Hard Disk Duplicator with Certified Sanitization to its Industrial High-Speed Line

Chatsworth, CA – July 24, 2013 – Aleratec Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of professional-grade duplicators for hard disk drives, USB flash drives and optical discs, introduced a new, 16-target model to its next generation line of SATA HDD duplicators and sanitizers today. The 1:16 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed hard disk drive duplicator and sanitizer features amazing hard disk copy rates of up to 120 MB per second, as well as a third-party verified 7-pass sanitization function. This model can duplicate up to 16 hard drives at a time or sanitize up to 17 hard drives at a time.

A leader in forensic data recovery services has independently verified that the data on hard drives sanitized by the 7-pass Overwrite function in this new duplicator have been “permanently destroyed” and meet the criteria of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) 800-88. Other options in hard disk drive sanitization that remove your data from the drive include a one-pass wipe and a three-pass wipe with verify. Finally, the 1:16 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed duplicator and sanitizer offers the fast and efficient Secure Erase, a NIST 800-88 accepted technique for purging hard drives.

Of course, this new high-speed model can sanitize multiple hard drives simultaneously, saving the valuable time of organizations and companies, especially on large jobs. "Having improved speed significantly in this new line, we are now focusing on increasing capacity as another way to give customers greater efficiency and performance," says Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. "Instead of buying multiple duplicators, our customers that process larger volumes of drives can meet their goals with a single, high-powered unit."

Other key features of the 1:16 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed include:

  • Hard disk drive bays that allow users to load and unload drives in seconds;
  • Specially designed non-scratch SATA connectors rated to last more than 50,000 swap cycles;
  • LED indicators on each HDD bay that visually confirm successful completion for the hard drive; and
  • Total processing control with Copy All Partitions, HDD Data Copy Only, Skip Errors and Compare.

  • In addition, the 1:16 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed operates as a stand-alone device that does not require a computer for disk duplicating or sanitization. Ideally suited for manufacturers, IT departments, businesses, and government agencies, models in the HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed family are compatible with 3.5 inch SATA hard disk drives and solid state drives (SSDs), and can also accept 2.5 inch SATA drives when combined with Aleratec’s 2.5 inch SATA hard drive adapters (Aleratec part number 350106) that are available separately for purchase.

    There are three models in the industrial, High-Speed line:
    1:5 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed - 5 HDD duplicator and 6 HDD sanitizer
    1:11 HDD Copy Cruiser High-Speed - 11 HDD duplicator and 12 HDD sanitizer
