Quantum, a storage company, has launched a new removable disk-based data protection system – RDX, which leverages data reduction technology to decrease cartridge requirements by up to 20:1.
The company said that the new RDX system offers removable disk cartridges for onsite and offsite storage, and can serve as a replacement for low-end tape devices, such as DDS/DAT.
It also features a dock (USB tabletop, SATA or USB internal versions), removable cartridges and GoProtect backup software for Windows.
Quantum said that RDX cartridges are sold separately in 160 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB and 640 GB capacities, with each cartridge containing a 2.5 inch mobile hard drive in a shock-resistant mounting.
