BOULDER, Colo. and OSLO, Norway -- Tandberg Data (OSE:TAD), a global supplier of data protection solutions, today introduced RDX FileKeeper, an easy-to-use software solution for the RDX QuikStor that provides transparent, always-on continuous protection of user data and a complete backup of all system and application data. The new RDX FileKeeper software will be included with all new RDX QuikStor units. Tandberg Data also announced the availability of the new 500GB RDX QuikStor cartridges.
The RDX QuikStor is a disk-based removable storage system with portable cartridges that offer rugged, reliable and convenient backup, ideal for the SMB market. It combines the benefits of tape reliability, portability, archive life, and low cost with the performance, speed, random access, and ease of use of hard disk technology. With the new RDX FileKeeper software, protecting data is as simple as plug it in, leave it in and leave it on. Tandberg Data will ship the RDX FileKeeper software at no extra cost with all RDX QuikStor drive kits.
Research has shown that 40 percent of SMBs dont back up their data at all, and 60 percent of all data is stored on PC desktops and laptops, says Bharat Kumar, vice president of marketing and development at Tandberg Data. Furthermore, most business users who do have a back-up device do not back up their data on a daily or even weekly basis. A third of computer users lose all files due to events beyond their control, and hard drive crashes occur every 15 seconds. A plug-and-play, 'ruggedized' device that offers CDP, automatically, will be able to prevent disastrous data loss.
