Tandberg Racks it Up
Tandberg Data was on hand to show off the RDX QuikStation, its latest RDX device for SMB and SME environments. This rack-mounted NAS or SAN device can hold as many as eight RDX removable hard drive cartridge drives and is configurable in just about every way imaginable, including as eight discrete iSCSI targets accessible from single or separate hosts. What's more, drive bays in this versatile unit can appear as a tape library or autoloader, stand-alone tape drives or hard disk drives, or any combination. Bays use the same cartridges as Tandberg's QuikStor drives, and are available in capacities ranging from 160 GB to 1.5 TB. With cartridge spanning, maximum backup dataset capacity is 12 TB. It works with major backup applications.
