RDX Removable Disk Overview

RDX® is a removable disk-based technology providing lightning fast backup and restore. The RDX product family is designed to deliver cost efficiency to small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) with growing data storage needs. There's no technical mountain to climb here, and it's just as easy to store data offsite—simply remove the pocket-sized disk media and carry to another location.

Grow your data storage needs affordably with RDX Removable Disk Cartridges
The RDX system is designed so that your data storage needs can grow using removable disk cartridges that range in capacity from 500GB to 4TB. Tandberg Data's RDX disk media are fully interchangeable and compatible with all our RDX systems. If you need a bigger backup run, then just use a higher capacity disk media. If you migrate from RDX QuikStor to RDX QuikStation, your RDX disk media come with you. And larger capacity RDX disk media will be fully compatible with any RDX product you've got.

RDX Family Overview

RDX®  is the removable disk standard which combines the portability and reliability of tape-based technology with the speed and simplicity of a hard disk drive. The RDX product family is designed to provide an affordable and flexible platform for data storage, data protection and off-site disaster recovery for physical or virtual environments as well as in Hybrid-Cloud applications.

Overland Tandberg About Us

rdxLOCK RansomBlock Feature

Ransomware has emerged as the most dangerous cyber threat for organisations. Almost every day, we read about new incidents in the news. Ransomware is a type of malicious software that blocks access to the victim‘s data until a ransom is paid. After a ransomware attack, system might be locked, or files are encrypted, deleted or inaccessible.

RansomBlock - Giving a peace of mind

The RansomBlock functionality sets all data on the RDX WORM media into a read-only mode. In addition, it allows write operations to RDX media for granted applications and processes similar to a personal FireWall. Therefore, backup applications are able to use RDX WORM media like a regular RDX backup target.

RansomBlock performs a validation check each time a write operation tries to access the RDX media. In case of a virus or ransomware attack or unauthorised access, RansomBlock will deny this operation and protect the data stored on RDX media from being infected.
