Internal Odyssey Docking Station Now Available

Designed to be used with next-generation cartridges, ensuring a smart investment for years to come, the Odyssey docking station is at the heart of the Odyssey system, designed to work with the higher-capacity hard disk cartridges of the future. And now the system includes the choice of either an internal or external USB docking station. Rather than compete with the CD-ROM slot, the new internal USB Odyssey docking station is compatible with all standard – and increasingly available – 3.5-inch floppy drive bays, freeing other bays for optical devices or additional hard drives. The internal docking station is compatible with all current and future Odyssey cartridges and offers full interchange with other Odyssey devices, including existing external docking stations.

All Odyssey docking stations include a full version of the award-winning EMC® Retrospect software for backup and restore that features password protection and government-certified 256-bit AES encryption.
