Tandberg Data Supplies Fujitsu with Latest 1TB RDX® Cartridge for Data Protection of PRIMERGY Server Platform

New RDX cartridge expands capacity options for SMB/SME backup, restore and archiving on Fujitsu servers

Dortmund, (Nov. 25 , 2010) Tandberg Data, the global supplier of data protection solutions, today announced that Fujitsu, a long-time OEM partner of Tandberg Data, will add the 1TB RDX® removable disk cartridge to its portfolio of RDX cartridge offerings to be used with the Fujitsu PRIMERGY server platform.  Since 2007, Fujitsu has provided its customers with the RDX technology, a backup system that offers safe, secure and offsite disk-based backup and archiving for small and medium sized businesses.  Fujitsu also supplies its customers with RDX cartridges from Tandberg Data ranging in capacity from 160GB to 1TB.

“Tandberg Data is the industry leader in supplying major OEMs such as Fujitsu with new and innovative RDX solutions that provide all the benefits of disk, such as near-instant file retrieval and reliability with all the benefits of tape, such as removability and offsite archivability – at an affordable price,” said Marije Gould, vice president of marketing for Tandberg Data. “This announcement is further evidence of Fujitsu’s commitment to continually refresh its product offerings with the latest backup and recovery technology on the market.”

“Our PRIMERGY Server platform combined with RDX removable disk technology provides customers with the ability to centralize and protect their IT infrastructures easily and economically,” said Uwe Romppel, Senior Director Product Management for Fujitsu.   “The new high capacity 1TB RDX cartridge allows customers to pack even more data on a single piece of media that can be used for daily backup or for offsite disaster recovery,” he added.

Tandberg Data is the leading worldwide provider of RDX removable storage system, having shipped more than 200,000 RDX QuikStor drives and more than 600,000 RDX cartridges to most major OEMs, resellers and distributors around the globe.  Reinforcing its RDX leadership position, the company recently introduced AccuVault RDX 1TB, a next-generation RDX appliance, which includes fixed disk, RDX removable disk and preconfigured deduplication software to provide an affordable, turnkey data protection solution for the SMB/SME.

RDX Technology

RDX technology provides a safe, easy-to-use and portable storage choice for SMBs and SMEs. Designed to back up 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 such as DAT and 8mm.  Its fast transfer rate of up to 45MB/second allows users to back up 100GB of data in less than an hour, streamlining the backup process.   RDX media is available in capacities ranging from 160GB to 1TB, with an ever-increasing capacity roadmap that tracks with the 2.5-inch mobile hard disk drive industry.
