Iomega Announces Backup Drive

SAN DIEGO -- Iomega Corporation (NYSE:IOM), a global leader in data storage and protection, today announced the new Iomega(R) REV(R) 120GB Backup Drive, the third generation of its award-winning REV technology and a benchmark in smart, sensible backup for small and medium-sized businesses, remote work groups and others.

Iomega will unveil the new Iomega REV 120GB Backup Drive and REV 120GB disks at CeBIT 2008, the international technology tradeshow beginning today in Hanover, Germany, and running through March 9. Iomega is located at CeBIT in Hall 2, booth D56.

The Iomega REV 120GB Backup Drive is expected to be available worldwide in April as external USB 2.0 and internal SATA interface models; a REV 120GB ATAPI interface model is planned for mid-year.

"With a REV install base of 350,000 drives and 2,000,000 disks, tape backup for small business has worn out its welcome," said Tom Kampfer, president and COO, Iomega Corporation. "Iomega's removable REV platform is a proven technology that delivers performance and ruggedness that no tape product can match. Compared to entry-level tape products like LTO-1 and DAT160 format tape drives, the new REV 120GB Backup Drive offers more native capacity, near instantaneous random access to files, faster backups and restores, and ruggedized cartridges -- all at a much better drive price. In addition, REV drives offer today's multimedia enthusiast a limitless storage solution for libraries of content with each 120GB REV disk holding approximately 48,000 photos, 2,000 hours of music or 12 hours of high-definition video."
