Tandberg Data Introduces Industry’s Highest Capacity RDX Data Cartridge
with 1.5TB of Native Storage
New RDX Data Cartridge Increases the Maximum Native Storage Capacity by 50
Percent, Extending Capacity Choices for Scalable Backup, Restore and Archiving
Tandberg Data, the owner of RDX technology and a global leader in data
storage and protection solutions, today announced the addition of the 1.5
terabyte (TB) RDX data cartridge to its portfolio of RDX data protection
solutions for small and medium businesses. RDX technology allows users to
quickly store or back up their data onto rugged, removable RDX data cartridges,
ensuring that their information is fully protected for instant availability,
off-site safekeeping and easy transport.
"With this latest announcement, Tandberg Data once again advances RDX
technology to meet the ever-growing storage requirements of customers who need
reliable, affordable and simple data protection for their organizations," said
Elisabeth Harth, global business unit director for Tandberg Data. "The 1.5TB RDX
data cartridge, used in conjunction with AccuGuard, Tandberg Data’s powerful
backup and deduplication software, permits users to store up to 30TB of
compressed data on a single pocket-size cartridge."
"Customers in data-intensive industries, such as medical imaging, legal,
graphic design, video surveillance, data mining and cloud storage, will find the
extra storage capacity particularly appealing," said Graham Paterson, senior
vice president, EMEA, Tandberg Data. "What’s more, the RDX technology’s forward
and backward compatibility enables users to preserve their technology investment
because the new RDX cartridge and all previous and future data cartridges will
work in all RDX docks."
Tandberg Data’s RDX QuikStation customers will also benefit from the new
cartridge capacity when they fully populate their disk libraries with 1.5TB RDX
data cartridges, increasing the appliance’s native storage capacity from 8TB to
12TB. The RDX QuikStation delivers robust data protection and off-site disaster
recovery in a feature-rich, multi-cartridge 2U configuration that integrates
easily into a broad range of environments.
