ITBusinessEdge: Preview – SMB-Targeted Network Storage Device From Tandberg

The QuickStation has eight bays for RDX cartridges – 2.5-inch drives in hardened cases that make the disk safely transferrable – or a combination of disks and tape drives.

“Tandberg Data earlier this week unveiled its RDX QuikStation, which the company says is the world’s first network-attached disk library based on the RDX removable disk technology. The 2U QuikStation is positioned by Tandberg Data as an affordable, yet versatile, backup appliance suitable for small- and mid-sized businesses. In terms of capacity, the QuikStation offers virtually unlimited offline capacity via eight RDX bays that can accept RDX cartridges of varying capacity.

According to information sent by Tandberg Data, the eight RDX bays can be addressed as individual iSCSI targets or deployed as an emulated tape drive in two separate configurations. On the emulation front, noted that the QuikStation can be set up as a Tandberg Data StorageLibrary T24 with eight slots and one LTO-3 tape drive, or a Tandberg Data StorageLoader with eight slots and two LTO-3 tape drives.”
