"Legal obligations to comply with the GDPR, audit-proof archiving and the acute proliferation of malware such as ransomware are pushing the often-neglected topic of data backups to the top of the corporate agenda," says Andreas Arndt, Sales Director for Central & Eastern Europe at Overland-Tandberg. "Our range of solutions specifically addresses these pressing challenges and helps businesses and public bodies with this particular aspect of the digital transformation, which is one of the headline topics at CEBIT 2018." That is why the company is heading to Hannover to showcase its comprehensive portfolio of disk-based RDX removable disk systems and tape-based LTO solutions, such as individual drives, autoloaders, libraries and LTFS appliances.
VMware recently put the RDX systems from Tandberg Data GmbH through their paces in a series of independent tests for ESX/ESXi - and they passed with flying colors. The results from VMware confirm that the USB devices can be fully supported in operation with ESX/ESXi hosts and virtual machines and used for data backup purposes. SMEs in particular benefit from the removable disk systems as a low-cost, long-term storage and archive solution that enables them to rapidly backup and restore data in a robust format. The rugged RDX HDD media are shockproof and designed for archiving periods in excess of ten years. The latest version of the RDX QuikStor individual drive boasts transfer rates of up to 1,188 gigabytes per hour, with each removable disk able to store up to five terabytes - bringing truly top-notch speed and data access rates to SMEs. Companies running larger system environments with virtual and mixed configurations may want to consider the RDX QuikStation appliance. This solution offers an online capacity of up to 40 terabytes and a data throughput of up to 1,000 megabytes per second.
