Tandberg Data Releases RDX® QuikStation™ 8, delivering increased speed, higher storage capacity and ease of use with unmatched flexibility
To address the data center market, it is packed with features that include:
- data transfer rates of up to 3.6TB/hour;
- web-based management;
- one 10GbE and/or four 1GbE iSCSI network ports with bonding for failover and performance load balancing; and
- optional redundant power supplies.
QuikStation 8 delivers the highest RDX media capacity currently available in the market – up to eight x 3TB RDX slots for a maximum capacity of 24TB online and unlimited offline. Even with its industry leading capacity and performance, the new RDX® QuikStation™ 8 appliance consumes very little power – typically 40-80W in operation. Appliances are easy to use and highly flexible to allow for multiple configuration options to meet today’s ever-changing backup storage requirements.
RDX QuikStation 8 is available together with Tandberg Data’s easy-to-use AccuGuard™ backup software solution which provides source-based data de-duplication. This enables customers to achieve full system protection with bare metal recovery, single file restore and off-site storage for their windows servers (incl. Exchange and SQL) and workstation systems, thereby utilizing RDX media 20 times more efficiently than without data de-duplication.
“Offline storage is central for effective data protection. QuikStation 8, with its built-in RDX technology, combines the advantages of secure and protected online and offline RDX storage with iSCSI connectivity for easy virtualization or hybrid-Cloud integration in a single removable disk appliance,” said
Peter Jong CEO and cofounder at JOBRI IT Systems said, “We are excited about our new RDX QuikStation 8 products as they offer the same solid reliability we have grown to love from the Tandberg RDX product line, yet now with faster gigabit Ethernet speeds. RDX QuikStation 8 is particularly well suited to our business as we need safe, reliable backup of client projects and archiving of project data. QuikStation 8 provides these attributes in an easy-to-use and proven platform.”
RDX® QuikStation™ 8 is available now at a starting MSRP price of EUR €3.599 or U.S.
