The RDX® Storage Alliance today announced that Maxell, a technology and marketing leader in premium data storage media products, has become a partner in the RDX Storage Alliance. The RDX Storage Alliance is a non-profit professional community comprised of customers, storage professionals, industry experts, RDX vendors and partners who are committed to sharing informative and engaging RDX solutions, best practices, and practical use-cases for companies to optimize and simplify data back-up, archive, compliance and disaster recovery while reducing associated costs. Maxell, Tokyo, Japan, is introducing RDX Storage technology products to the Japan market. Maxell is a full-line manufacturer for the data storage, broadcast and consumer markets and provides exemplary support to deliver leading performance and value for its customers.
"Less than 50% of small businesses have any or adequate backup, archive, compliance and disaster recovery procedures for their company's data; they need reliable backup products and they want products that go beyond minimal backup, retention, restore capabilities," said Mitsuyuki Nagano, department manager in the Business Planning Department at Maxell. "RDX technology fills the gap by offering greater functionality: quick data replication, cartridge portability and durability, flexible restore and longevity. Small businesses, such as law firms and medical offices, all need these features. They will get these with RDX products."
"We are clearly glad to have Maxell become a partner of the RDX Storage Alliance and contribute their knowledge to this professional community," said Karl Chen, Executive Director of the RDX Storage Alliance. "RDX removable disk technology is a cost-effective, scalable storage solution for backup and recovery of data and images. RDX technology combines the best features of tape and disk backup, but adds portability, easy duplication, rapid random data access, compatible capacity growth, high data reliability and affordability."
OEM partners of the RDX storage technology include industry leaders Dell, Fujitsu, Hitachi, HP, IBM, Imation, Maxell, NEC, ProStor Systems, and Tandberg Data. RDX removable disks are 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.
RDX is a flexible and easy solution for small, medium and enterprise companies and provides the data protection features they need in the easy-to-use process they need. RDX removable disk technology products provide plug and play installation and appear to computers as a standard disk drive removable media device providing easy drag and drop control and instant data retrieval.
