Tandberg Data ships 100,000 RDX® QuikStor™ drives

<p>Sydney, December 10: Tandberg Data, the global supplier of data protection solutions, today announced it shipped the 100,000th unit of its RDX QuikStor removable disk system, in November 2008, less than two years after the introduction of the technology.</p>
<p>The RDX QuikStor is a disk-based removable storage system with portable cartridges that offer rugged, reliable and convenient backup, ideal for the SMB market. It combines the benefits of tape - reliability, portability, archive life, and low cost - with the performance, speed, random access, and ease of use of hard disk technology.</p>
<p>“Since its introduction, the RDX QuikStor has conquered the removable disk market,” says McClain Buggle, product manager for disk and software at Tandberg Data. “With global OEMs and Tandberg Data’s worldwide channel embracing the product, we have achieved strong quarter-on-quarter growth, and we are proud to have reached this milestone. We expect this growth to continue.”</p>
<p>Global analyst firm IDC expects the removable hard disk market to grow significantly; from just above 100,000 units per year in 2008, to more than 500,000 units per year in 2012 (1). Removable hard disk drives (R-HDD) are a cost-effective and convenient backup solution for SMBs,” said Robert Amatruda, research director at IDC “Tandberg Data’s shipment of its 100.000th RDX QuikStor drive unit represents a significant milestone for the company, and illustrates the increasing adoption of its RDX technology in the marketplace."</p>
<p>About the RDX QuikStor
The RDX QuikStor is designed to replace current low-end tape technologies such as Travan, DAT, and AIT, where ease of use and cost are prioritised. Like tape, the RDX QuikStor cartridges are removable and portable for off-site storage, disaster recovery and archival applications. Unlike other low-end tape media that may need to be replaced after 50-100 uses, RDX QuikStor media has been built to endure over 10 years of average use.</p>
<p>As well as offering professional-class reliability, the native 45MB/sec transfer rate reduces the traditional backup window from hours to minutes. For example, it takes the Tandberg RDX QuikStor system less than an hour to backup 160GB of native data and milliseconds to access files. RDX QuikStor cartridges range in capacity from 80GB, 160GB, 320GB and 500GB. They are fully forward and backward compatible without limitation, meaning that future cartridges with ever-increasing capacities and faster data rates will work in legacy systems.</p>
<p>RDX FileKeeper
RDX FileKeeper is an easy-to-use software solution for the RDX QuikStor that provides transparent, “always-on” continuous protection of user data and a complete backup of all system and application data. The RDX FileKeeper’s installation provides of 2 easy steps and setup is simple enough that anyone can start protecting their data immediately. The cartridge can be configured for only System Backup, only continuous backup of user files or both. If both are selected, a full system backup is scheduled by default for 11:00pm and the RDX FileKeeper product will immediately start a background copy of all files that are to be protected. Any additional configuration changes can be made through the main interface. RDX FileKeeper is included in any RDX QuikStor Drive kits.</p>
<p>Availability
The RDX QuikStor is available through Tandberg Data’s established channel of distribution and reseller partners: ACA Pacific, Datastor, T Data, Multimedia Technology, and Ingram Micro NZ in New Zealand.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
