Atola TaskForce 2 is a top-performance forensic imager capable of running 25+ imaging sessions in parallel, automatically retrieve data from damaged media, detect and reassemble unknown RAID arrays.
TaskForce 2 has 26 ports: 8 SATA, 8 SAS/SATA, 4 NVMe(M.2 and U.2), 4 USB, IDE and extensions for Thunderbolt and Apple PCIe SSDs. Two 10Gb Ethernet ports are available for fast data transfer. Device racks for convenient and secure drive organization.
TaskForce 2 can be connected to a network and operated by multiple users in Google Chrome browser on their own devices. An offline Kiosk mode use is available, too.
Imaging 25+ drives simultaneously at 25 TB/hour Atola TaskForce 2 lets you multi-task using the fastest imaging engine thanks to its server-grade motherboard, 16-thread Xeon CPU 3.7 GHz and ECC RAM
25+ imaging sessions in parallel plus other tasks
25 TB/hour cumulative speed of imaging
imaging at 500+ MB/sec on SSDs, 4 GB/sec on NVMe
Source/target switch on all ports for maximum flexibility
Hardware write protection in Source mode on all ports
Integration with workflow automation tools via Web API
Pause and resume any imaging session
Imaging to up to 5 targets including E01, RAW, AFF4 files in the networks, on other drives, VeraCrypt-protected drives
Express mode (configure, activate and connect drives to have them imaged without further clicks into the selected destination)
Powerful logical imaging module with smart filters for files and folders, time and size ranges to save time and target space
RAID autodetection, reassembly and imaging Autodetection for RAID arrays with an unknown configuration:
identifies RAID type by reading data on selected members
processes thousands of potential configuration variants
one-click application of a suggested configuration
partition preview for visual assessment of a reassembled RAID
rebuild of RAID even with a missing or damaged device (for redundancy-based RAID)
physical or logical imaging of a complete RAID or its elements
Currently supported: RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, JBOD
Damaged drive support Atola’s data recovery engine is fully automated and is designed to retrieve maximum data fast and avoid further damage.
In-depth drive diagnostics
Automated data recovery with a multi-pass algorithm
Selective head imaging
Automatic reset of freezing drives
Current sensors on all SATA, SAS/SATA, IDE ports
Overcurrent and short-circuit protection on all ports
Segmented hashing for damaged drive image verification
10Gb Ethernet network
Open TaskForce interface on any device within the same local network by entering the IP address displayed on the front panel in Google Chrome. The system has two 10Gb ports.
For offline use, plug in a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse to the system. The interface will be immediately available.
TaskForce has an optional Wi-Fi adapter, by plugging which you can operate the unit in a secure network via a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Multi-user access & user interface The interface is designed for examiners with all levels of technical proficiency:
Operated via Chrome browser
Simultaneous use by multiple operators
User management system limiting access to others’ cases
Launch of any operation within 2 – 5 clicks
Highly intuitive task-oriented user interface
Drive content triage via Browse file feature and in the Logical imaging module
