RDX Technology Overview

Since its introduction, RDX technology has been adopted by most major OEM server manufacturers, including Fujitsu, HP, Hitachi, IBM, NEC and Toshiba. Tandberg Data owns the development rights to RDX technology, having acquired the RDX business, including intellectual property and key members of the RDX engineering team, from ProStor Systems in May 2011.

RDX technology is an economical and easy-to-use removable disk-based storage system for small- and medium-sized businesses. The technology combines the best of tape storage—reliability, portability, long archive life and low cost—and the best of disk—speed, random access and ease of use.

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-based solutions include single dock systems; 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.

*The 1.5TB RDX cartridge will be available in September 2012.
