Need a simple, inexpensive and reliable way to protect the data and systems critical to your small business? Backups are simple and pain-free with drag and drop file access. Fast disk based performance provides the ability to store up to 1 TB of data on a single removable disk cartridge at speeds of up to 108 GB/hr. Long lasting removable disk cartridges and forward and backward compatible RDX docking stations reduce ownership costs. When used with an HPE RDX Backup System the solution seamlessly integrates with HP Continuous Data Protection Software providing complete data protection and enabling simple and secure offsite storage. The HPE RDX removable disk cartridge gives you the best of both worlds. It handles and operates like traditional tape media, with all the performance advantages of disk backup. Backups can be quickly and easily accomplished with standard ISV or CDP backup applications. HPE RDX comes with handsfree  continuous data protection software and Windows backup mode. If no backup software is available, data can be dragged and dropped directly to the rugged removable cartridge.

  • Reduce on-going media and upgrade costs with disk cartridges designed for long usage life. Rugged, portable and durable removable disk cartridges enable business critical backup data to be simply and securely taken off-site for disaster recovery, archive or data transfer.
  • Cartridges are specified for over 5,000 load and unload cycles and designed for long life expectancy.
  • RDX 1TB cartridges are tested to withstand a drop of 1 m, 39.4 in (3 feet).
  • The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System is compatible with all current and future higher capacity HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridges making the system fully multi-generational.
