Tandberg Data Hits Milestone with the Shipment of 1.5 Million RDX® Removable Disk Cartridges Worldwide

Reaching a new high with more than 400,000 terabytes of capacity shipped, RDX technology has emerged as the de facto standard in removable data protection for small and medium-sized businesses.

Westminster, CO, Sept. 13, 2012, Tandberg Data, the owner of RDX disk technology and a global leader in data storage and protection solutions, today announced that more than 1.5 million RDX removable disk cartridges and 450,000 RDX docks have shipped to date through OEMs, resellers and distributors worldwide.

"We are very committed to making significant investments in solutions based on RDX," said Elisabeth Harth, global business unit director for RDX at Tandberg Data. "More than 400 petabytes of data are stored on RDX-based technology worldwide. Tandberg Data continues to roll out innovative RDX-based solutions, such as the recently announced 1.5TB RDX cartridge and our free RCE encryption software, to help customers protect their ever-growing volumes of data affordably and easily."

Licensed to major storage manufacturers and sold by strategic OEMs and storage solution partners worldwide, RDX technology is an economical and easy-to-use data backup and storage system for small and medium-sized businesses. Numerous vertical industries have adopted the technology, including retail, legal, education, health care, video and broadcasting, food, managed services and graphic design.

"The growing number of major OEMs offering RDX removable disk technology is a strong indication of its market acceptance," said Randy Kerns, senior strategist at The Evaluator Group.

"In addition to increased capacity and performance, RDX backups allow us to retrieve and restore data from backup much faster than we ever could before," said Jesus Gonzalez, IT director for St. Baldricks Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to funding childhood cancer research. "It's also comforting to know that as our data continues to grow, we can instantly increase our storage capacity with new RDX cartridges."

About RDX Technology

RDX technology combines the best of tape storage—reliability, portability and long archive life—and the best of disk—speed, random access and ease of use. The Tandberg Data RDX QuikStor™ is compatible with common file systems and backup applications and is available with AccuGuard™ deduplication software that automates backups for users. With transfer rates up to 650GB/hr, RDX allows users to access any file in milliseconds while cutting their backup window from hours to minutes. RDX technology’s forward compatibility enables users to preserve their investment because all future RDX cartridges will work in today’s systems.

RDX cartridges are available in hard drive and solid-state disk drive capacities ranging from 64GB to 1.5TB. All RDX cartridges are removable for off-site storage, disaster recovery and archival applications, and are built to last more than 10 years with normal use.

Today’s RDX removable disk solutions include: single dock systems, such as Tandberg Data’s RDX QuikStor; LAN-attached disk-based appliances; and multi-cartridge removable disk libraries. RDX systems are used by organizations for data storage, backup, archive, disaster recovery and cloud seeding, among other applications.
