Overland-Tandberg’s RDX Technology Seamlessly Integrates as Professional MAC Storage

High capacity RDX Media, ideally suited for data rich applications in the video-broadcast and desktop publishing market (DTP)

SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 27, 2017 –  Overland-Tandberg™, a storage brand that unifies the strengths of Sphere 3D Corp subsidiaries Overland Storage and Tandberg Data, is pleased to announce that the RDX® Utility for MAC software is now available for immediate download and use. Customers and press have long recognized RDX products for their inherent security and reliability in long-term storage, archive, and backup. In the Windows world, RDX is the de facto standard device for local backup storage with small and medium-sized business customers. Now, the latest utility release targeting MAC software and users, allows seamless integration in graphics and data rich production workflows.

Overland-Tandberg is celebrating the 10th anniversary of RDX technology, which continues to deliver lightning-fast backup and restore capabilities for cost-efficient, long-term storage and archive solutions. RDX combines the portability and reliability of tape-based backup with the speed and simplicity of a hard disk drive and/or solid state drives. Ruggedized RDX cartridges are shockproof, can sustain a one-meter drop onto a concrete floor, are protected against electro static discharge events, and support an archival lifetime of more than ten years.

The RDX Utility for MAC software enables creative professionals, in industries such as graphic design, desktop publishing and video-broadcasting, to utilize a reliable and trusted storage and archive solution for their data-rich production workflows. In addition, whereas data exchange and transport is a challenge for customers utilizing Cloud storage providers, RDX delivers an elegant, fast and effective alternative. RDX is a plug and play solution that appears as a standard hard-drive to the MAC and is also integrated with MAC Time-Machine tool for MAC backup and with other data management and protection applications targeting disk devices.
