Supplier News

Quantum Data Protection  is a major provider of backup, recovery and archive solutions for the global market.  

Quantum introduces the Quantum RDX, a removable disk-based data protection system that leverages data reduction technology to decrease cartridge requirements by up to 20:1.  

Suitable for users in the SMB segment, the non-proprietary Quantum RDX removable disk system offers removable disk cartridges for onsite and offsite storage to cost-effectively meet data backup, disaster recovery and archiving requirements.  

These flexible and easy-to-use disk storage systems serve as a replacement for low-end tape devices such as DDS/DAT.  

The entry-level Quantum RDX removable disk system comprises of a dock (USB tabletop, SATA or USB internal versions), removable cartridges and Quantum GoProtect backup software for Windows.  

Quantum GoProtect data reduction technology eliminates redundant data, thereby decreasing the number of cartridges required for effective backups.  

Rob Clark, senior vice president, Tape Business and OEM Partnerships at Quantum says that the simplicity, speed and interoperability of the Quantum RDX system make it an ideal, cost-effective backup solution for SMB customers who prefer the portability of their current tape devices but also want the performance advantages of disk.  

Open standards-based RDX cartridges are sold separately in 160 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB and 640 GB capacities to enable customers to grow and customise their storage needs. Each cartridge contains a rugged 2.5-inch mobile hard drive in a highly effective shock-resistant mounting that is RW-compatible and interchangeable with any RDX dock.  

Quantum’s GoProtect software offers integrated protection plans that can be quickly set up with just a few mouse clicks, while data restores can be easily done with drag and drop functionality through Windows Explorer.  

The Quantum RDX removable disk system is available from Quantum’s partners and distributors worldwide.
