Easy

RDX QuikStor combines the portability and reliability of tape-based backup with the speed and simplicity of a hard disk drive. Compact internal or external RDX drives accept pocket-sized RDX media. Your computer will recognize each cartridge and provide instant access and easy drag-and-drop control.

Fast

Write and read access is near-instant allowing users to work directly with the data on the media like one would with any other hard disk drive. With RDX capacities ranging from 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB to 5TB, users have enough capacity to support a wide range of storage requirements, ensuring their data is fully protected.

Rugged

RDX drives are tough, and media is shockproof and rugged enough to last more than 10 years. Knocks and drops don't mean lost data. Plus valuable data can be further protected through Tandberg Data's RCE encryption software, ensuring complete peace of mind.

Portable

The RDX media is small and durable, so slip easily into a pocket for easy transport. They can be carried to another site for use by another computer or moved off-site for archiving.

Mobile

The external RDX USB3+ drive only needs a USB3.0 connection to work. It is as easy to use as an external USB disk drive but much more robust and reliable. This enables RDX for outdoor usage like scientific data collection, in the media and entertainment environment, mobile workforce or just for easy data distribution across locations.

Capacity Expansion and Media Rotation

Media Spanning to multiple RDX media allows backups to grow and to expand capacity beyond a single RDX media. All that is needed: Multiple RDX media and supporting backup software. For best practice, multiple media should be used for backup and stored off-site for disaster recovery purposes. A minimum rotation of 3 media is recommended: 1st in drive for next backup, 2nd in transit and 3rd off-site for disaster recovery.

Rack Integration with RDX QuadPAK™

The RDX QuadPAK allows up to 4 RDX external drives to be securely installed in a 19" rack to simplify backup and restore operations. This enables RDX to coexist with other IT equipment like servers, disk systems and network components in one rack.

PowerEncrypt

PowerEncrypt hardware encryption is now included with the SATA III version of the Overland Tandberg RDX QuikStor drives***. RDX PowerEncrypt data encryption can be added to all RDX media encrypting data written to RDX media with AES-256 XTS standards. Data access is restricted to only those having a password key deployed with the RDX Manager software.

In addition, software encryption is supported for all RDX drives, including external RDX QuikStor drives and RDX QuikStation removable disk appliances.

Additional Protection

RDX WORM enhances RDX for compliant archiving (optional software solution). RDX RansomBlock protects against virus and ransomware attacks. RDX Cartridge Encryptor (RCE) is free software to encrypt data stored on RDX media.

Fixed Disk Mode for Windows Backup

RDX QuikStor provides a fixed disk mode and allows a seamless integration into windows-backup.** Windows-Backup of current operating systems does not support removable media any more. Users are constrained either to refrain from an operating system upgrade, or to use a third party backup software.

 

* Media dependent
** This functionality is only available with our USB3.0 RDX drive.
*** For SATA III drives with f/w update.
