In the professional data security and storage industry, there are few institutions where the stakes are higher than with the federal government. When a branch was recently in need of a removable data solution for a new mobile workstation platform, they consulted with DIGISTOR.
The application was specified as follows: they required a device that was extremely powerful, yet mobile and flexible enough to allow for a multi-threaded application to perform optimally across multiple networks with varying security levels.
An industry standard for many data professionals, the Dell Precision 7520 is a powerful mobile workstation—but even the 7520 has its limits. While these workstations perform at a very high level, accessing the onboard SSD was time consuming. Removing and transporting the drives was causing mechanical failures in the field.
In addition, the client needed these devices to easily swap in and out of multiple operating systems, security levels, and networks. As administrators transferred between secure and unsecured networks, training networks, operating networks and other environments, a fast, secure and flexible need became clear.
The optimal solution would have to be an easily accessible, powerful, and secure SSD that was removable and interchangeable in seconds, and could plug in and adapt to a range different devices and networks.
DIGISTOR partnered exclusively with Dell to create a new solution, the type of which the market has very rarely seen. Our VaultDisk® Removable SSD could be installed into Dell’s existing mobile line of Precision Workstation Laptops. VaultDisk® Secure Removable SSD easily and safely ejects from the DIGISTOR patented entry system.
One of the virtues of this client using the VaultDisk Removable SSD is that it allows for multiple users, operating systems, and security levels to utilize a single platform. A product with this level of power, security and flexibility didn’t previously exist.
Another benefit is that the system is incredibly easy to use, saving the the user space, money and time. This solution enables the entire hard drive to be removed with the same ease and conveneience as an older generation might have interchanged floppy disks. Thet ValutDisk system also creates efficiency between multiple users logging into workstations.
Just how fast is the ValutDisk® Removable boot drive SSD solution? Watch below for a comparison.
The DIGISTOR team seamlessly integrated VaultDisk® across the Dell Precision Mobile Workstation line, giving the client a mobile, secure and conveniently removable solution.
DIGISTOR has released VaultDisk drives in a variety of network ID color schemes to allow for easy detection and use across multiple networks.
Succeeding in their mission to find a new and innovative solution, the Director of Application Deployment at this branch of the federal government later confessed, “Deploying VaultDisk Removable SSD into our workflow saved thousands of man hours and allowed us to achieve compliance with NSA HDD sanitation requirements. The Network ID function specifically gives us the freedom to deploy valuable training required for our applications.”
Dell is now marketing this new breed of solution on an OEM basis and is winning designs across the Fed Sector.
