Replace DAT with RDX

Are you still using DAT Tapes?  Compare DAT to RDX, the perfect Windows Backup Device!

Most IT professionals would prefer to perform full backups within their environments. But, to save time and money, they end up doing incremental tape backups using the common grandfather-father-son (GFS) backup rotation scheme. The downside of incremental backups is that the restore operation requires more tapes and more time than restoring the data from the last full backup.

Choose RDX as the DAT Alternative

Performing a full backup of 60GB of data using DAT72 requires two tapes per week day and a cleaning operation at least once a week. To achieve data retention with GFS in use, you’ll need additional tapes for the weekly and monthly full backups.

Smart Backup

So, wouldn’t it be great to have just one media format that does it all for you? Tandberg Data RDX technology with AccuGuard backup software provides you with the ability to establish a solid GFS rotation plan and allows you to archive your data off-site for even greater data protection. This type of backup rotation strategy requires three pieces of RDX media, with one piece being sent to another location for safekeeping.

RDX with AccuGuard Software

With AccuGuard software, a daily full backup that incorporates deduplication technology results in the following:

> Reduction in the amount of data that needs to be backed up
> Reduction in the amount of time you need to complete the daily backup
> Reduction in media needed for a GFS data retention time
> Reduction in the number of pieces of media necessary for a full restore so you don’t have to hassle with multiple pieces of media
> Increase in backup and efficiency

A complete data protection strategy including disaster recovery could be two RDX pieces of media for on-site media rotation and a third piece of media for off-site media storage. With RDX and AccuGuard, full backups are simple, automatic and lightning fast so users experience fewer backup problems and much better data protection
