HP StorageWorks RDX Removable Disk Backup System
Product Highlights
Product Highlights
Combines the best of
tape and disk
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 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 StorageWorks RDX Removable Disk Backup System DL Server
Module provides integrated data protection for HP ProLiant DL380 G6 servers,
optimizing rack utilization by integrating into any HP ProLiant DL380 G6 rack-optimized server.
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 108
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 StorageWorks 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 onsite 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 (designed
and proven to withstand a 3 feet (one meter drop) onto concrete). 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
load 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.
