The 1513+ can withstand 1550°F temperatures and up to 10 feet depth for 30 minutes, guaranteed to keep data safe for long enough to get a fire put out and get what’s left of the unit — your data — out safely.

The 1513+ is certified for 4 TB drives, yielding 20 TB of raw storage per unit. It supports connection of up to two expansion bays of similar size and protection, for a total of 15 bays. The $1600 unit will likely be certified for 6 TB capacity drives before its release at the end of the first quarter, yielding up to 90 TB of raw storage when combined with expansion units.
