HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System
Product Highlights
Product Highlights
Combines the best of tape The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System is based on removable disk technology that handles and
operates like a traditional tape drive and media, yet has all of the advantages of disk-to-disk backup. The
and disk
HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System allows backups to be accomplished with "hands free" HP RDX
Continuous Data Protection Software, standard ISV backup applications or data can be dragged and
dropped directly to the rugged removable storage media. To the host computer, the HP RDX Removable
Disk Cartridge appears as a Windows drive letter with the high performance benefits of a disk based
backup system.
Easy to implement and
use
Many small business customers have limited time, knowledge, experience or desire to dedicate to backup
and therefore currently have no or very rudimentary backup processes in place. The HP RDX Removable
Disk Backup System offers these customers a complete backup solution that is simple to implement and
easy to use.
Installation is an easy and quick process of connecting the industry standard form factor HP RDX
Removable Disk Backup System USB docking station either internally to a server or rack-mount kit or
externally as a tabletop. The new HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System DL Server Module provides
integrated data protection for HP ProLiant DL380/385 G6/G7 servers. The new HP RDX 1TB USB 3.0 Gen8
DL Server Module provides integrated data protection for the HP ProLiant DL380p/DL385p Gen8 rackoptimized servers. The RDX 1TB USB 3.0 Gen8 DL Server Module is the only RDX DL server module that
integrates with the HP ProLiant DL380p/DL385p Gen8 rack optimized servers.
Backing up is a simple matter of inserting a removable disk cartridge into the docking station. The
cartridge will automatically show up as a letter drive in Windows explorer with no extra formatting or extra
steps required. Simply select the files that need to be protected and drag them into the removable drive
folder. To restore files, just reverse the process.
For a hands free backup experience use the HP RDX Continuous Data Protection Software designed for
ease of use and complete workstation and server backup protection. Key features of the HP RDX
Continuous Data Protection Software include continuous data protection, file deduplication, bare metal
restore, seamless cartridge rotation and archiving support, simple file recovery, complete backup
coverage (unlimited file versions, open files, application data user settings and the complete operating
system are all automatically backed up), and comprehensive backup status updates. Scheduled backups
can be performed through support for standard ISV backup applications.
Fast backup and restore
Staff productivity and thus customer service can be negatively impacted by the lengthening backup
window and restore/recovery times associated with optical backup solutions. The HP RDX Removable Disk
Backup System provides a backup solution that backs up and retrieves data quickly and reliably thus
optimizing application availability and staff productivity.
Data can be backed up to HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridges at hard drive speeds (up to 360 GB/hour). HP
RDX Removable Disk Cartridges are randomly accessed and read so critical single files and selected file
stores can be restored in seconds instead of hours.

HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System
Product Highlights
Affordable cost of
ownership
Many small business customers have limited IT budget available for data protection with business owners
wanting to reduce IT capital and operational expenditure and protect IT investments to optimize business
profitability. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a complete backup solution that has
low initial acquisition costs and low on-going media and upgrade costs.
Total cost of ownership is lowered by the fact that HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridges are specified for
5,000 insertion/removal cycles, so HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridges will not wear out (and therefore
need to be replaced) over the typical life cycle of the solution. Upgrade and obsolescence costs are also
reduced and investment protection guaranteed by the fact that HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System
docking stations are compatible with all current and future higher capacity HP RDX Removable Disk
Cartridges. Customers will not need to purchase a new docking station when next generation higher
capacity HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridges are released. Similarly, today's HP RDX Removable Disk
Cartridges are compatible with all current and future HP RDX docking stations. Customer's existing HP RDX
Removable Disk Cartridges will work with next generation HP RDX docking stations when they are
released.
Removability and
portability
To ensure complete data protection against all types of data loss - including on-site system/site
destruction or natural disaster - small businesses need the ability to remove their backup and archive data
off-site. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a backup solution that enables on-site
backup data to be removed, stored and rotated off-site in an easy, safe and secure way.
HP RDX Removable Disk Cartridges are portable (palm size), durable (2.5 inch disk drive features include
ramp loading heads, fluid dynamic bearings, inactive state spin down) and rugged. The robust HP RDX
Removable Disk Cartridge is also designed to protect data from potentially damaging Electrostatic
Discharge (ESD) and as well as prolonged exposure to heat, dust and other environmental contaminants.
Reliability
The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a docking station specified for more than 10,000
loads and unloads and an HP RDX cartridge specified for over 5,000 load and unloads and long life
expectancy.
Easy scalability and
expandability
Many growing small businesses are experiencing storage capacity growth that is outstripping the
capacity/performance of current optical backup solutions. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System
provides a backup solution that scales easily as capacity needs grow. Adding capacity is a simple matter of
adding cartridges to an existing HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System USB docking station. The HP RDX
Removable Disk Backup System docking Station will work with all current as well future higher capacity
cartridges as they are introduced. The product's roadmap leverages the industry standard mobile 2.5" hard
disk drive roadmaps with new higher capacity cartridges expected to be introduced regularly.

HP Care Pack Information For increased uptime, productivity and ROI -HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage
These days, you need to get the most out of your storage investment-you can't afford not to. When you
buy HP storage products and solutions, it's also a good time to think about what levels of service and
support you may need. To help take the worry out of deploying, designing, maintaining, and managing
your environment, we've designed a portfolio of service options that are as flexible, reliable and scalable
as your storage. Unlike storage-only vendors, we take a holistic approach to your entire environment,
bridging storage, servers, blades, software and network infrastructures with our HP Care Pack packaged
services for Storage.
Protect your business beyond the warranty
When it comes to robustness and reliability, standard warranties on today's computing equipment have
matured just as the technologies have matured. Good news on some fronts-but also a source of potential
problems and subsequent consequences that come from depending on standard warranties alone.
Standard warranty protects against product defects and some causes of downtime- but not the business.
By using a standard approach to warranty uplifts, such as HP Care Pack Services, you can reduce downtime
risks and be more certain of operational consistency for both mission-critical and standard business
computing. Simply put, HP Care Pack Services normalize the warranty of combined products - helping you
proactively guard against unplanned downtime.
Extending warranties with HP Care Pack Services
For cost-effective upgrading or extending your standard warranty, HP Care Pack Services offer a suite of
standard reactive hardware and software support services that are sold separately, or combined as with
our Support Plus and Support Plus 24 services. The portfolio also provides a combination of proactive and
reactive services, such as Proactive 24 Service and Critical Service. In addition, with HP Proactive Select we
offer an innovative approach to service delivery that gives you the flexibility to acquire the specific
proactive services you need today, then add services as your needs evolve. HP Proactive Select offers a
broad set of technical or per-event type service options - including server, storage, and network, SAN
device, and software, environment, installation and education services. Services that you can mix and
match depending on your specific requirements, from preliminary planning and equipment delivery to
installation, configuration, integration, and testing, through every level of ongoing support. Our HP Care
Pack packaged services for Storage assures help when you need it most. And for many products, postwarranty HP Care Pack Services are available when your original warranty has expired.

migrations to complete completely managed services. HP Factory Express provides customization,
