Imation has announced that it has added a 300 GB capacity cartridge to its line of RDX removable disk cartridges. The RDX system, a low-end tape replacement solution, is designed to provide small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with easy and reliable backup, data security and expandable storage. The new 300 gigabyte cartridge is the largest available capacity for any removable hard disk solution in use today.
"Small and medium-sized businesses need a high-performance, cost-effective storage solution that is easy to use, reliable, and scalable as their data storage requirements continue to grow," said Keith Schwartz, North America sales and marketing, Imation. "The RDX system, now available with 300 gigabyte cartridges from Imation, is a perfect fit for businesses faced with ever-expanding storage needs."
"We are committed to advancing the RDX roadmap to keep pace with customers’ data storage needs," said Bob Williamsen, vice president of marketing for ProStor Systems. "As more SMB users seek a replacement for their low-end tape systems, the RDX solution provides these businesses with unmatched reliability, the highest storage capacity and the fastest speed of any removable hard disk solution in the market. We are pleased to partner with Imation to extend our RDX offerings."
Each RDX disk cartridge houses a high-capacity mobile 2.5-inch hard disk drive in a shock-proof design to allow the cartridge to sustain a fall from up to one meter. The cartridge is inserted into a dock, which can be connected internally through SATA or externally with a USB. The fast transfer rate of up to 45 MB/second reduces the typical data backup window from hours to seconds, allowing a user to back up 100 GB of data in less than an hour. Unlike tape, which winds sequentially to read data, RDX technology accesses files in milliseconds, allowing for instant data retrieval. Users protect their technology investment simply by choosing the RDX disk cartridge capacities, ranging from 40 GB to 300 GB, which suit their specific applications.
Making it even easier for SMBs to protect their data, the Imation RDX system also includes EMC(R) Retrospect software. The award-winning software installs in minutes and delivers fast backups, accurate restores and full disaster recovery with minimal manual effort or expertise. Further, EMC Retrospect offers government-certified 256-bit AES encryption, the highest level of protection available.
Imation’s RDX Removable Hard Disk Cartridge will be available for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $499.99 (about Rs 18,000).300gb, cartridge, hard disk, Imation RDX
