RDX® QuikStation™ Removable Disk Array

The RDX® QuikStation is a network-attached removable disk array designed to provide a platform for data protection and off-site disaster recovery for physical or virtual SMB and SME environments.

 

RDX QuickStation Advantages

Configuration flexibility
The RDX QuikStation provides removable data protection for any or many systems on the same network. The removable disk array emulates different configurable storage types, offering users versatility and expanded compatibility. The RDX-based appliance can look like a tape library or autoloader, virtual RDX drives, logical volumes, generic disk drives, or a combination of tape and disk.

Compatible
RDX QuikStation is compatible with popular backup applications to quickly and easily integrate automated removable disk into existing protection plans. ISCSI connectivity provides for easy integration into existing Ethernet infrastructure.

Manageable
Built-in web-based management with multi language support is accessible from any standard web browser and offers user-friendly control through it front panel LCD with multi language support of configuration, management, operation, status and security.

Removable Disk-Based Array
Finally, a removable disk array solution that delivers the cost, durability, and removability of tape with the random access and performance of disk.

RDX® QuikStation™ 8

The RDX QuikStation 8 provides 8 integrated RDX drives. Combined with Tandberg Data’s 4TB RDX media, the system provides up to 32TB of online capacity and unlimited offline capacity.

It is offered in two network configuration models. For high performance and resiliency, a model with four bonded Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports with load balancing and failover capabilities is available. The second model is equipped with an additional 10GbE port for maximum performance requirements. It offers protected modes for spanned disk volumes witha fault tolerance of either 1 or 2 RDX media to ensure full data availability.

this is the highly flexible and highly performant removable disk appliance that allows users to configure the unit as:

Features and Benefits QuikStor 8

FEATURE BENEFIT
Based on RDX Removable Disk RDX is the de facto industry standard for removable disk technology and has been adopted by all major system OEMs. RDX delivers the removability and durability of tape with the random access and performance of disk.
Media Removability & Transportability Easily facilitates safe data transport for offline storage, disaster recovery, archiving, data collection and interchange. Up to 10-year RDX media shelf life for data archiving capability.
8 individual RDX drives Use as 8 individual iSCSI targets with simultaneous read/write capability or as individual media locations within an emulated library.
Optional 2nd power supply Eliminates single point of failure in case of a power failure.
Logical Volume Spanning By utilizing 4TB RDX media, a maximum online capacity of 32TB is available by configuring 2 logical volumes with 4 RDX drives each. In protected mode, a maximum capacity of 24TB can be achieved. RDX media removability allows for limitless offline storage and media capacities will increase with the RDX roadmap.
High performance read/write The ability to simultaneously read or write from all 8 drives in conjunction with bonded network connectors in iSCSI mode means that high performance data transfer rates can be achieved to meet shrinking backup windows.
Protected mode for logical volume configuration Ensures high data availability by providing fault tolerance of RDX media.
Network Attached RDX Simple installation & deployment utilizing existing infrastructure and widespread networking expertisePerfect solution for consolidating multiple RDX operations
Green features for minimal power, cooling, and space requirements Very low power requirements: under 90 watts, typicalRDX removability means that RDX media that is not currently in use can be taken offline to minimize data center power and cooling needs. High density 2U Form Factor packs a lot of functionality in a very small space minimizing impact on data center space requirements
Configuration flexibility with iSCSI or tape automation emulation modes Tape automation modes facilitate quick integration with existing backup applications. iSCSI facilitates centralization of resources, security, and management among multiple hosts in heterogeneous environments while reducing hardware controller costs by utilizing the ubiquitous Ethernet interface.
4 x Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) ports, failover bonded Provides high availability network connectivity.
Integrated web-based management Using a multi-lingual standard web browser from anywhere in the world: manage, control, diagnose, and configure security.
Three -year Advances Replacement Service Backed worldwide by Tandberg Data’s exceptional service. In addition, warranty service upgrade packages are available.
Compatible with major backup software packages Facilitates easy integration into existing data protection infrastructures. Compatible with Windows®, Linux, and Mac OS and major backup packages
Easy to Setup and Use Start protecting data fast, no special knowledge or training required.
1 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) port Ensures fast access to data with up to 1000MB/s***
