Tandberg RDX - QuickSation 8TB Library

The RDX QuikStation delivers data protection and offsite disaster recovery for SMB and SME environments in a multi-cartridge 2U configuration. It provides users with the benefits of tape storage, including removability and archivability, and the benefits of disk, namely speed, random access, reliability and high capacity.

Designed and built by Tandberg Data, the RDX QuikStation consists of eight integrated RDX docks that provide up to 8TB of online capacity when populated with 1TB RDX disk cartridges, as well as unlimited offline capacity. Users can choose to configure the unit as either eight individually-addressable iSCSI disk targets or as an emulated tape autoloader or library. Just as tape libraries revolutionized the utility of tape storage, the RDX QuikStation will increase the ways in which removable disk technology will store, protect, archive, transport and restore data.

"The ability to simultaneously read or write from all eight docks in iSCSI mode means that the RDX QuikStation can achieve very high performance rates for faster backup and restore," said Randy Kerns, analyst with the Evaluator Group. "I would encourage users to look at the opportunities presented with the Tandberg Data RDX library. It also can be deployed for less traditional applications, such as providing system snapshot copies, data interchange between remote offices and life support for systems awaiting data from the cloud."

The RDX QuikStation includes features that streamline system deployment and management. With built-in web-based management, the RDX-based library makes remote system configuration, management, operation, status checks and security easy and convenient. Because the RDX QuikStation is compatible with popular backup applications it is able to integrate into a broad range of environments. The RDX QuikStation is already supported by Computer Associates' ARCserve, Symantec Backup Exec, and Tandberg Data's AccuGuard Server backup and deduplication software. Additional ISV support will be announced in the near future.

"The RDX QuikStation is the Swiss Army knife of data protection," said Marije Gould, vice president of marketing for Tandberg Data. "It is a remarkably flexible platform that facilitates consolidation of RDX data protection while providing multiple paths to adding removable disk to existing storage infrastructures. With its ruggedized and standardized RDX format, it also creates the ideal foundation for cloud seeding, bulk load, and bulk restore."

RDX Technology
RDX technology provides a safe, rugged and portable storage choice for SMBs and SMEs. Designed to backup and archive data from servers and workstations, RDX removable disk technology offers users higher capacity, faster speed and lower cost than low-end tape products. Its transfer rate of up to 45MB/second allows users to backup 100GB of data in less than an hour, streamlining the backup process. RDX media is available in capacities ranging from 160GB to 1TB.
