ZXI-10G 10GbE Hard Drive Duplicator

The ZXi-10G is the first hard drive duplicator on the market to include two 10GbE network connections, allowing you to streamline your workflow and clone directly to or from a network repository or a NAS device. The ZXI-10G efficiently performs hard drive duplicating tasks including PC deployments, O/S upgrades, content/application distribution and data back-up tasks.

  • 2 10GbE network ports for fast cloning to/from a network repository or NAS
  • Clone up to a total of 6 SATA/SAS-ready targets, add 4 targets with an optional expansion kit
  • Clone up to 8 USB 3.0 targets
  • Thunderbolt/USB-C port available to clone to/from Thunderbolt storage enclosures
  • Blazing fast hard drive duplicating at up to 29GB/min*
  • Clone PCIe (including NVMe type) drives using the optional PCIe Expansion Module
  • Supports SATA, USB3 in the base unit, optional support for SAS drives is available
  • Support for IDE, ZIF, mSATA, microSATA, eSATA drives and compact flash media is available with optional adapters
  • Supports both mirror copy (100% bit for bit) and a “CleverCopy” mode that intelligently copies only data areas of the hard drive
  • Safely sanitize drives with a wipe feature. Supports DoD 7 pass, Secure Erase and meets NIST 800-88 guidelines

Hard Drive Duplication supports cloning 3.5″/2.5″ SATA hard drives,3.5″/2.5″ SAS (optional), USB enclosures and thumb drives. PCIe drives are supported with an optional PCIe Module. Optional adapters are available for 1.8/2.5/3.5″ IDE and IDE ZIF drives, eSATA, microSATA, mSATA and flash media. 

Network Cloning allows network access (upload/download) to drive images and log files. Utilize the high-speed 10GbE connection to clone to/from a network repository or NAS solution and achieve transfer speeds of up to 30GB/min. Two 10GbE ports allow you to connect to a 10GbE NAS to use as a source and connect to your network using the 2nd 10GbE port to minimize bottlenecks

PCIe Support PCIe M.2 (NVMe, AHCI, SATA types), PCIe and mini-PCIe cards are supported with the optional PCIe Module. Supports cloning up to 7 PCIe targets using optional PCIe adapters.

USB Cloning supports cloning to and from USB enclosures and thumb drives. 7 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports are available

Thunderbolt The ZXi-10G features a Thunderbolt/USB-C port. Users can connect Thunderbolt external storage enclosures to the ZXi-10G and clone to/from these solutions

Multi-target CloningClone from 1 master to 5 SATA or 5 SAS (if SAS option is purchased) target drives, or clone from a ZXi-10G created image stored on an external USB enclosure or on a network repository to a total of 6 SATA/SAS target hard drives

Data Transfer RateThe ZXi-10G duplicates hard drives at speeds up to 29GB/min*

Multiple Master/Source and Target Drives Users can assign any drive stations as a master or target drive

Error Handling A error granularity user-selectable setting provides more control over error handling of the master drive. Four cluster size settings are provided to determine the number of sectors to be skipped when a bad sector is found on the master drive. The ZXi-10G can also abort or skip bad sectors found on the master drive

Clone from an image or a master hard drive supports cloning from a ZXi-10G-created image stored on a USB enclosure connected via one of the ZXi-10G’s USB 3.0 ports, from a ZXi-10G-created image stored on a shared network drive location, or clone from a master/source hard drive

Multi-Session Capability Allows users to perform multiple tasks including cloning wiping or hashing concurrently

Write-Protected Source ZXi-10G drive stations or USB ports that are designated as a master by the user are automatically write-blocked to prevent any alteration to sensitive data on the source drive

Remote Operation ZXi-10G allows you to control all operations from a remote computer using a web browser or CLI interface.

Flat-Bed Design The ZXi-10G features a flat-bed design with removable, field-replaceable drive stations. The drive stations provide drive power port protection

*Speed based on 1 to 1 mirror cloning using solid-state drives. Speeds will vary depending on the type of drives and number of targets

4 Drive Expansion Kit The optional expansion kit provides an additional 2 SAS/SATA and 2 SATA only targets for a total of 9 SATA (7 SAS) targets when cloning from a master hard drive or 10 SATA (8 SAS) targets from a ZXi-10G created image stored on a network repository or from a repository stored on an external USB enclosure connected to the ZXi-10G

Wipe Feature The ZXi-10G provides a comprehensive wipe mode. DoD wipe, Secure Erase and custom pass settings. Supports NIST 800-88 guidelines

Hash Verification Option This optional feature allows the user to clone and verify the exact replication of the master drive. Features user-selectable SHA-1, SHA256 or MD5 algorithms

Multiple Cloning Modes Supports Mirror (bit for bit copy) and CleverCopy (copies only data areas, skips blank sectors)

Large Capacity Drives The ZXi-10G provides support for today’s large capacity drives (>2TB)

Task Macro Allows users to set specific tasks to be performed sequentially. For example, set task 1 to wipe, task 2 to clone, task 3 to hash

File Systems Supports all O/S and file systems including Linux and MAC in Mirror mode. Supports FAT16/FAT32/NTFS and Linux (ext, ext2, ext3, ext4) in CleverCopy mode

Flat Bed Design & Removable Drive Stations Provides fast, easy connection to a variety of hard drive types. Removable drive stations are field replaceable

Blank Disk Blank disk feature checks if the drive is blank

Drive “Time-Out” A user-selectable feature will set a specific “time-out” for drives connected to ZXi-10G. After a specified idle time the drive will automatically be put into standby mode, powering down the drives

Advanced Administrative Functions Administrators can create/manage image repositories, manage network settings, create user profiles, save configurations, manage drive station assignments

Audit Trail/Log Report Detailed information about the cloning session is provided, and reports can be printed from a browser or via CLI. The report includes a digital signature for authentication purposes.

Mouse/Keyboard The unit features PS2/mouse port for connecting a keyboard and mouse to the ZXi-10G.

HPA/DCO Clone or wipe HPA/DCO areas of the drive

Colour Touch Screen Display A vibrant display provides an intuitive and easy to use interface

Compact Footprint The ZXi-10G takes up minimal real estate on the work bench at a size of 3.7″ X 19″ X 17.2″ (9.39cm X 48.26cm X 43.68cm) and weighs only 14lbs (6.4kg)
