Auburn-based ioSafe Inc. raised $2.5 million from the Central Valley Fund II.
The money will allow ioSafe to expand its disaster-proof products and allow it to license its patented technology to other companies.
The Central Valley Fund, based in Davis and Fresno, invests into existing companies with proven markets.
Launched in 2005, ioSafe builds robust computer hardware storage devices that can withstand fire, flooding and trauma. It sells them online, at Costco and at Fry’s stores, among others. The company is using the money to expand its product line of “network attached storage” hardware, where critical data can be stored on site and also be connected to the cloud.
