For its new Rugged Portable line, ioSafe offers both spinning platters and solid state drives in your choice of "Full Metal Jacket" casing carved from a solid billet of aluminum or titanium. The drives are crush-proof, shock-proof, water- and chemical-proof, and designed to withstand extreme environmental conditions."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1295308466.usr1.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>If you have data you need to protect, and that data is in physical jeopardy on a regular basis, you may want to look at what ioSafe has to offer. This article is quite amusing because the author from Ars Technica gets to shoot at the drives with a shotgun...then an M-16. No joke! That would have been loads of fun. The drives, amazingly, survive - making things like being driven over or dunked in water seem positively mundane.</p>
