Aleratec 1:5 HDD Cruiser Hard Drive Duplicator

Aleratec Inc., leading developer and manufacturer of “Prosumers’ Choice” solutions for the USB, Flash, HDD, Blu-ray, DVD/CD, duplicating, and publishing markets, is featuring its new 1:5 HDD Cruiser™, a hard disk drive duplicator and sanitizer all in one unit, for Earth Day 2009. There is a continuing need for all businesses and organizations to keep their computer systems up to date and computer recycling is one of the most economical and environmentally friendly methods. The benefits are obvious. Hard drives do not end up in a landfill and organizations save money which has a special significance in this economy.

Gartner reported recently that in one year there were 160 million PCs disposed of worldwide which amounts to 460,000 a day. Of these 41% were stored, 32% were put in landfills, and 27% recycled. The Aleratec HDD Cruiser is aimed at increasing the recycled percentage. Hard drives can be wiped clean and reused with no worry about confidential information being compromised.

“The 1:5 HDD Cruiser is a powerful and effective tool to upgrade hard drives for multiple systems and is ideal for IT departments to upgrade and recycle computers. The sanitizing capability of the 1:5 HDD Cruiser overwrites all readable data and disc images on hard drives, so that confidential information cannot fall into the wrong hands. Then, to complete an upgrade, just add site licensed operating systems and new applications so a system upgrade is completed with just a drive swap. Producing an exact disk copy on up to 5 disk drives at once is easy with the 1:5 HDD Cruiser,” said Perry Solomon, President and CEO of Aleratec. ” Only Aleratec offers affordable, easy to load and unload, hard drive duplicators with these powerful features.”

The 1:5 HDD Cruiser will duplicate up to 5 HDDs simultaneously and it can sanitize up to 6 HDDs to assure that confidential data is unreadable. Once the drives have been sanitized they can be reformatted with new operating systems and applications. It is equipped with quick load drive bays so there are no cumbersome external cables needed. The 1:5 HDD Cruiser is a stand alone unit and no computer is required for operation so there is no need to tie up a computer for hours running complex software to duplicate or sanitize hard disk drives.

The innovative Aleratec 1:5 HDD Cruiser is proudly assembled in the USA from components sourced globally. With an estimated retail price of $1049, it is a must have for IT departments or anyone that is updating systems and recycling hard disk drives.
