HDD-based RDX® Media

Backup, Restore and long term Archiving

The HDD-based media is ideal for backup, restore and long term archiving tasks. It is an affordable solution for SOHOs and smaller SMBs. With capacities from 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 3TB to 4TB, the HDD-based RDX media fits perfect in every individual environment.

Backup and Recovery

If RDX is used as a backup and recovery device, as a rule of thumb, the capacity of RDX media chosen should be at least double the size of the capacity of data to be backed up. This includes the assumption of implementing an incremental backup strategy or using deduplication. RDX is supported by all major backup software vendors.

Long Term Archiving

A 10 years archival life and unlimited compatibility of drive- and media-generations are the best prerequisite for long term archiving of your data, like customer records, financial files or business documents, but also videos, photos or music.

Data Moving

The HDD-based RDX media is also best for storing, sharing and moving all business data. The rugged cartridge design makes it easy to distribute data by regular post or courier services from one office to the other.

A perfect fit

The HDD-based RDX media is a universal storage device, which fits in almost every application.
