IBM RDX 750GB Removable Disk Cartridge - Part #46C2334 (REPLACED by Tandberg 8586-RDX)

The IBM RDX solution provides all the benefits of disk, with fast random access to data and drag and drop functionality, and all the historic portability and durability benefits of tape. Designed for portability and longevity, the rugged RDX cartridges are engineered to be durable so you can safely transport off-site while also providing the shelf life required for archival requirements


Whether you are in a System x tower, rack optimized, or BladeCenter S environment, IBM provides simple and flexible RDX docking alternatives. RDX docks are offered as external standalone units as well as internal 5.25” half height docks, which can easily mount in any standard half height bay or when combined with an IBM 1U Enclosure can quickly be converted into an external rack mountable solution, containing up to 2 RDX internal docks. The internal docks can also be installed internally in select IBM System x rack optimized servers by leveraging an optional enablement kit (43V5959).

High Performance Plug and Play USB Connectivity

IBM RDX docks come with an USB 2.0 interface allowing for plug and play internal or external connectivity for simplified out of the box setup. The native USB interface not only delivers a fast and easy installation, but ensures that ports are widely available. This provides for a lower cost implementation by eliminating the need for an additional host-bus-adapter. This interface also allows for the performance you desire, with USB sustained native transfer rates of up to 25 MB/s.

High Capacity and Easy Scalability

Whether protecting a static data set or trying to plan and manage for growth, IBM offers 160GB, 320GB, 500GB, 750GB and 1TB RDX cartridge capacity points to meet your requirements. RDX docks are compatible with all IBM cartridge capacities.

Intuitive Management

The standard Yosemite Backup Basic with DR for IBM RDX application provides a powerful and intuitive wizard-based management approach to backup and recovery. Simplified process management should also come with a full-feature set and Yosemite Backup Basic with DR for IBM RDX delivers, providing such advanced functionality as bare metal disaster recovery and cartridge encryption features.
