ZClone Xi

The ZClone®Xi (also known as ZXi), is the next generation of the popular ZClone duplicator from Logicube. The ZXi delivers blazing fast hard drive duplication at 24GB/min* with an easy to use, intuitive interface that makes it simple to operate for all skill levels. The base unit supports up to 5 targets (6 targets if cloning from a network repository). An expansion option increases the number of targets up to 10. The ZXi supports both mirror copy (100% bit for bit) and also features a “CleverCopy” mode that intelligently copies only data areas of the hard drive.

The ZXi provides built-in support for SATA and optional support for SAS drives. Three USB 3.0 ports supports cloning of USB thumb drives and enclosures. Optional adapters are available to support other drive interfaces including IDE, ZIF, mSATA, microSATA, eSATA and compact flash media.

Network upload/download is easily accomplished via two gigabit ethernet ports. The optional Verification/Hash feature gives users the ability to verify the exact replication of the source drive. Advanced administrative features include a Task Macro, remote control via a web browser and the ability to set user profiles. Two USB 2.0 host ports are available to connect a keyboard and mouse to the ZXi.

The unit can also safely sanitize drives with a wipe feature. Users can choose from a Secure Erase, a custom pass setting or a DoD wipe of 7 passes.

This industrial-strength hard drive cloner provides IT professionals and system integrators with a solution that efficiently performs hard drive duplicating tasks including PC deployments, O/S upgrades, content/application distribution and data back-up tasks.

Features

Hard Drive Duplication

Supports 3.5″/2.5″ SATA hard drives,3.5″/2.5″ SAS (optional), USB enclosures and thumb drives with three dedicated USB 3.0 ports. Optional adapters are available for 1.8/2.5/3.5″ IDE and IDE ZIF drives, eSATA, microSATA, mSATA and flash media. For information on which adapters suit your needs refer to our ZXi adapter guide.

Multi-target Cloning

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

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 network repository or from a repository stored on an external USB enclosure connected to the ZXi.

Data Transfer Rate

The ZXi duplicates hard drives at speeds up to 24GB/min*.

Flat Bed Design & Removable Drive Stations

Provides fast, easy connection to a variety of hard drive types. Removable drive stations are field replaceable.

Multiple Master/Source and Target Drives

Users can assign any drive stations as a master/source or target drive.

Network Sharing

Allows network access (upload/download) to drive images and log files. Two Gigabit Ethernet ports are available.

Clone from an image or a master/source hard drive

Supports cloning from a ZXi-created image stored on a USB enclosure connected via one of the ZXi’s USB 3.0 ports, from a ZXi-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.

Clone USB Enclosures and Thumb Drives

3 USB 3.0 ports are available.

Large Capacity Drives

The ZXi provides support for today’s large capacity drives (>2TB).

Write-Protected Source

ZXi drive stations or USB ports that are designated as a source/master by the user are automatically write-blocked to prevent any alteration to sensitive data on the source drive.

Wipe Feature

The ZXi provides a comprehensive wipe mode. DoD wipe, Secure Erase and custom pass settings.

Bad Sector Handling

Scan for bad sectors on a the source hard drive, abort or skip and log for review.

Color Touch Screen Display

A vibrant display provides an intuitive and easy to use interface.

Hash verification Option

This optional feature allows the user to clone and verify the exact replication of the source 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).

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.

Remote Operation

ZXi allows you to control all operations from a remote computer using a web browser or CLI interface.

Advanced Administrative Functions

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

Compact Footprint

The ZXi 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).

Audit Trail/Log Report

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

USB 2.0 Host Ports

The unit features two USB 2.0 ports for connecting a keyboard and mouse to the ZXi.

HPA/DCO

Clone or wipe HPA/DCO areas of the drive

Lightstack/beeper (Optional)

The tri-color lightstack alerts the user when tasks complete or when attention is required.

One-year Standard Warranty

The system comes complete with a one year parts and labor warranty. Both an optional 1 year extended warranty (total of 2 years) and a 2 year extended warranty (total of 3 years) are available.

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