HP RDX Video - Could HP RDX Disk based backup be right for your business

These are the Major RDX applications - Storage - Backup - Archive

If you use RDX as a storage device, you can use it as an extension of your internal hard disk. But as its removable, you can also share you data with others. A RDX drive is affordable, so colleagues may also install a RDX drive to access your data. You can move your data from one location to the other. The RDX media survives drops, shocks and other tough outside influences because of its rugged design. If there are no are slow network connections, you can also distribute data to other servers and applications or to the cloud.

RDX offers an easy way to backup you data, as you should do this regularly. To be on the safe side, use media rotation, then keep at least one or two copies of your backup in another location in case of disaster. If you are a Windows Backup user, then you can also integrate RDX. Windows backup in newer Windows versions does not support tape, you have to use disk. As RDX offers a fixed disk mode, Windows backup recognizes it as a disk, but you can still remove it like a tape. If you have small backup-windows or would like to save backup-storage, we recommend software like AccuGuard Software, which provides deduplication. This saves you up to 20 times of disk space.

Archiving is also a favorite task of RDX. As about 2/3 of data isn’t accessed after 3 months. Disk space can be freed up with data vaulting. So RDX can help you to save hardware costs. The rugged design and the use of our free encryption software makes RDX ideal for a secure long term archiving. If you use RDX WORM functionality, you even fulfill regulatory and compliance requirements. If you just need data infrequently, you can use RDX as an Nearline Storage device. So you might have project data which must be available but not always online.
