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.
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 320 GB, 500 GB, 1 TB, 1.5 TB to 2 TB and RDX SSD media capacities ranging from 128 GB, 256 GB to 512 GB, users have enough capacity to support a wide range of storage requirements, ensuring their data is fully protected.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Complete backup with optional AccuGuard
Tandberg Data's AccuGuard is a powerful data protection software that delivers reliable, automated backup and recovery utilizing a data deduplication engine designed to increase effective storage capacity. AccuGuard increases effective data storage by providing 20:1 deduplication, intelligently optimizing the data at the source which results in drastically improved backup windows and network bandwidth. Data retrieval is simple and painless with AccuGuard's flexible file searching, drag-and-drop recovery and point-in-time restore.
* This functionality is only available with our USB3.0 RDX drive.
