Tandberg Data and Altaro Partnership Provides Hyper-V Backup to RDX Users

Tandberg Data’s RDX® QuikStor users get 20% discount on certified Altaro Hyper-V Backup software

Westminster (Oct. 18, 2011): Tandberg Data, the global manufacturer of data protection solutions, announced today that its RDX QuikStor removable disk system has been certified with Altaro’s Hyper-V Backup software. The combined solution has been developed to make Hyper-V virtual machine (VM) backup simple, affordable and effective, allowing organizations to protect their VMs on their RDX QuikStor with a few easy steps.

Tandberg Data and Altaro have teamed up to offer Tandberg Data’s RDX customers a free version of Altaro Hyper-V Backup that allows users to back up two VMs to an RDX QuikStor. If customers need to protect more than two VMs, additional editions of the software are available: the standard edition protects up to five VMs and the unlimited edition protects an unlimited number of VMs and supporting clusters. Tandberg Data RDX customers are eligible for a 20% discount on the standard price. For more information and to download a copy of the Hyper-V Backup software, please visit www.tandbergdata.com/hyper-v.

“With the rapid adoption of Hyper-V in the SMB space, these businesses need to back up their virtual machines with user-friendly software, at an attractive price,” said Marije Gould, vice president of marketing at Tandberg Data. “RDX is the ideal backup technology for small and medium businesses. RDX cartridges are removable, reliable and rugged. Combined with Altaro’s easy-to-use, full-featured, yet affordable Hyper-V software, customers can be confident that their data is backed up securely.”

"SMBs needing to protect their Hyper-V infrastructure will find an ideal solution in Altaro Hyper-V Backup coupled with Tandberg Data RDX technology,” said David Vella, CEO of Altaro Software, “This combined solution will instantly ease the load on SMB administrators without breaking the bank."

About Hyper-V Backup

Altaro Software, a fast-growing developer of backup solutions for SOHOs and SMBs and a Microsoft BizSpark Partner, has developed Hyper-V Backup from the ground up with two main objectives in mind: to allow SMBs to suitably protect their VMs without investing in costly solutions and/or expensive specialized IT staff; and to enable them to minimize VMs backup time. The software is fully Hyper-V aware, takes just five minutes to install and configure and does not require knowledge of the inner workings of Hyper-V. This is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses that often do not have large IT support staff.

In addition, by taking advantage of Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy (VSS) technology, Altaro’s offering allows hot backups, ensuring that the virtual machines can keep running smoothly even during the actual backup process. In addition to this, Hyper-V Backup also supports CSV clusters, often deployed by SMBs to create high-availability environments.

About RDX

Tandberg Data’s industry leading removable disk technology, RDX, is a disk-based removable storage system with portable cartridges that combines the benefits of tape — reliability, portability, archive life and low cost — with the speed, random access and ease of use of hard disk technology.

Customers can choose from a range of RDX cartridge capacities, including 160GB, 320GB, 500GB, 640GB and 1TB, and a range of SSD (solid-state disk) cartridges up to 512GB. All RDX cartridges are removable for off-site storage, disaster recovery and archival applications. With transfer rates up to 650GB/hr, the RDX QuikStor allows users to access any file in milliseconds while cutting their backup window from hours to minutes. In addition, the RDX technology’s forward compatibility enables users to preserve their investment because all future RDX cartridges will work in today’s systems.
