Tandberg Data introduced 1TB RDX
cartridge for use with Tandberg Data RDX QuikStor. The new 1TB
cartridge is the highest capacity RDX cartridge in the market.
Tandberg Data is also offering its customers a variety of RDX
cartridge capacities, including 160GB, 320GB, 500GB and 640GB. The
1TB RDX cartridge will allow the users to backup their entire server
onto a single cartridge, ensuring that their data is fully protected
for instant availability or off-site safekeeping.

RDX QuikStor is a disk-based removable
storage system with portable cartridges that offer rugged, reliable
and convenient backup, which is ideal for the SMB market. It combines
the benefits of tape— reliability, portability, archive life and
low cost with performance, speed, random access and ease of use of
hard disk technology.

“Tandberg Data continues to advance
its RDX removable-disk technology to addresses the burgeoning data
storage needs of small and mid-sized customers who need reliable,
cost-effective storage," said Robert Amatruda, Research
Director, Data Protection and Recovery, IDC. "The growing number
of top-tier OEMs and resellers offering RDX removable-disk technology
is a strong indication of its market dominance” he added.

“The 1TB RDX cartridge, used in
conjunction with Tandberg Data's powerful backup and de-duplication
software, AccuGuard, with a typical 20:1 deduplication ratio, allows
users to keep a backup of 20TB of raw data on a single pocket-size
cartridge,” said Marije Stijnen, VP, Marketing, Tandberg Data. “At
that capacity point, RDX technology beats all other backup methods in
its class as a safe and economical data protection solution for users
who want to secure their important files.”

of RDX removable storage systems having shipped more than 180,000 RDX
