Tandberg Data Ships New USB 3.0 RDX Dock and Family of RDX Solid-State Disk Cartridges

Backup performance improves by up to eight times with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and new SSD cartridges provide the ultimate in speed and reliability for demanding environments

Dortmund, Germany., (May 3, 2011): Tandberg Data, the global supplier of data protection solutions, today announced a new family of affordable RDX removable disk solutions with the introduction of USB 3.0 connectivity for its RDX QuikStor data protection solution. Also announced today was a new line of RDX cartridges based on solid-state disk technology for demanding environments that require super fast, extremely durable and portable storage.

The RDX QuikStor is a disk-based removable storage system with portable cartridges that offer rugged, reliable and convenient backup, ideal for the SMB and remote offices. It combines the benefits of tape—reliability, portability and long archive life—with the performance, random access and ease of use of hard disk technology. RDX AccuGuard software delivers powerful 20:1 deduplication and data protection when activated with the RDX QuikStor solution

The new RDX QuikStor SuperSpeed USB 3.0 docks are fully compatible with all RDX cartridges, maintaining full interchangeability of all RDX docks and cartridges. The new RDX QuikStor USB 3.0 achieves speeds up to eight times that of the USB 2.0 and SATA versions. In addition, the RDX QuikStor USB 3.0 has been optimized for power efficiency, making the device more environmentally friendly.

New RDX Solid-State Disk Cartridges

Customers now have the choice between standard high-capacity RDX cartridges or the new RDX solid-state disk cartridges, which provide blazing fast transfer rates of up to 180MB/s, when used with the RDX QuikStor USB 3.0. Designed for mission-critical, data-intensive applications such as medical, military, video editing and surveillance, the new RDX solid-state disk cartridge capacities include 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. Standard 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.

“Tandberg Data has shipped more than 70 percent of the world’s RDX solutions in the past four years and the company continues to roll out new and innovative RDX-based solutions to help customers find affordable and creative ways to protect their ever-growing volumes of data,” said Marije Gould, Vice President of Marketing for Tandberg Data. “This announcement further validates the company’s commitment to be the world’s leading provider of innovative RDX data protection solutions for small businesses and remote offices.”

Pricing and Availability

The RDX QuikStor with USB 3.0 (internal dock) will be available in May, and the RDX QuikStor (external dock) will be available in June through Tandberg Data’s established channel of OEM, distributor and reseller partners. The manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of the RDX QuikStor with USB 3.0 starts at $179 (US).
