Spectre and Meltdown Security Update:
As always, X-IO is trying to improve our protections against Cyber threats that seem to be only increasing. The most recent revelation of the Spectre and Meltdown threats on the Intel platform (but not limited to them) made us perform a careful engineering and security review and analysis using all currently available information.
Making and marketing enterprise storage technology with a five- to seven-year duty cycle, in-built storage media remanufacturing and recovery, and a zero-service-events design puts durability, reliability and availability first, in the minds of our employees and our customers, who expect us to put smart people and parts on the ground anywhere in the world that ISEs are operating. In data centers. On oil rigs. In concrete bunkers in the middle of nowhere.
And that’s what X-IO Worldwide Service does: provide coordinated support, services, and training for the hardware, software, device drivers, operating systems, and applications that are qualified to work with X-IO’s products and solutions.
Our service is consistently cited by our customers as part of the reason they’re growing their investment in ISEs.

X-IO Hardware Warranty and Maintenance
X-IO supports hardware, either through our standard time-of-purchase warranty, or — for our customers who want to leverage their ISE investment across a six- or seven-year duty cycle — as a maintenance extension after the warranty period expires.
Each ISE comes with a five-year hardware warranty, at no additional charge. For customers in the United States, the warranty period starts the day the unit is shipped, and for customers outside the United States, it starts sixty (60) days after the day the unit is shipped.
Hardware maintenance includes the following items:
- ActiveWatch (advanced real-time telemetry capture and “phone home” alerts and notification)
- Replacement of failed hardware components
- Failed component-related phone support
