RDX® QuikStation™8
Highly flexible and highly performant removable disk appliance

RDX QuikStation 8 is an iSCSI network-attached removable disk appliance designed to provide a flexible platform for data protection and off site disaster recovery for physical or virtual SMB and SME environments. The RDX QuikStation 8 provides 8 integrated RDX drives. Combined with Tandberg Data’s 5TB RDX media, the system provides up to 40TB of online capacity and unlimited offline capacity.

The highly flexible RDX QuikStation allows users to configure the unit as:

Disk Modes:

  • 8 individual RDX QuikStor drives in removable and fixed disk mode (addressable via 1 to 8 hosts)
  • 2 Logical Volumes with up to 4 RDX Drives** (addressable via 2 hosts)
  • 1 Logical Volume with up to 8 RDX Drives** (addressable via 1 host)

Automation Modes:

  • Emulated StorageLoader™ (8 slots and 1 LTO tape drive)*
  • Emulated StorageLibrary™ T24 (8 slots and 2 LTO tape drives)*
  • Emulated disk autoloader (8 slots and 1 drive)

Hybrid Mode:

  • 1 hybrid configuration that offers a combination of a LTO StorageLoader and 4 RDX targets

RDX QuikStation 8 Advantages:

Configuration flexibility
The RDX QuikStation provides removable data protection for any or many systems on the same network. The removable disk appliance emulates different configurable storage types, offering users versatility and expanded compatibility. The RDX-based appliance can look like a tape library or autoloader, virtual RDX drives, logical volumes, or a combination of tape and disk.

High Performing iSCSI Network Storage
QuikStation 8 is offered with two bonded 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports with load balancing and failover. An IPMI-port provides remote management capabilities.

Overcome Capacity Limitations and Data Availability
Spanning data over several RDX media is possible by using either LTO Tape Automation modes or creating a single RDX Media volume that can be expanded but still maintains all RDX benefits of removability and protection of customer’s data.

Data Integrity and Security
RDX WORM media are available for regulatory compliance archiving. RDX WORM has been assessed by KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Frankfurt am Main, to numerous regulations. To avoid threats by cryptolockers, RDX RansomBlock can be used to protect the RDX disk volumes while they are online. Alternatively, customers can use the LTO Tape Automation modes and benefit from the LTO Ransomware protection.

Manageable
Built-in web-based management with multi language support is accessible from any standard web browser and offers user-friendly control, automated firmware updates, management, operation, status and security.


  • *LTO Emulation does not limit the capacity and performance of the RDX media used
  • **Logical Volumes are available in fixed or removable mode, as well as in protected modes

Features and Benefits:

Feature Benefit
Based on RDX Removable Disk RDX is the de facto industry standard for removable disk technology and has been adopted by all major system OEMs. RDX delivers the removability and durability of tape with the random access and performance of disk.
Media Removability & Transportability Easily facilitates safe data transport for offline storage, disaster recovery, archiving, data collection and interchange. Up to 10-year RDX media shelf life for data archiving capability.
8 individual RDX drives Use as 8 individual iSCSI targets with simultaneous read/write capability or as individual media locations within an emulated library.
Logical Volume spanning By utilizing 5TB RDX media, a maximum online capacity of 40TB is available by configuring 2 logical volumes with 4 RDX drives each. In protected mode, a maximum capacity of 30TB can be achieved.

RDX media removability allows for limitless offline storage and media capacities will increase with the RDX roadmap.
High Performance read/write The ability to simultaneously read or write from all 8 drives in conjunction with bonded network connectors in iSCSI mode means that high performance data transfer rates can be achieved to meet shrinking backup windows.
Protected mode for logical volume configurations Ensures high data availability by providing fault tolerance of RDX media.
Optional 2nd power supply Eliminates single point of failure in case of a power failure.
Network Attached RDX Simple installation & deployment utilizing existing infrastructure and widespread networking expertise.

Perfect solution for consolidating multiple RDX operations.
Green features for minimal power, cooling, and space requirements Very low power requirements: under 90 watts, typical.

RDX removability means that RDX media that is not currently in use can be taken offline to minimize data center power and cooling needs.

High density 2U Form Factor packs a lot of functionality in a very small space minimizing impact on data center space requirements.
Configuration flexibility with iSCSI or tape automation emulation modes Tape automation modes facilitate quick integration with existing backup applications. iSCSI facilitates centralization of resources, security, and management among multiple hosts in heterogeneous environments while reducing hardware controller costs by utilizing the ubiquitous Ethernet interface.
2x 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) port Ensures fast access to data with up to 2000MB/s.
Integrated web-based management Using a multi-lingual standard web browser from anywhere in the world: manage, control, automatic firmware update, diagnose, and configure security.
Three-year Advances Replacement Service Backed worldwide by Tandberg Data’s exceptional service. In addition, warranty service upgrade packages are available.
Compatible with major backup software packages Facilitates easy integration into existing data protection infrastructures. Compatible with Windows®, Linux, and Mac OS and major backup packages.
Easy to Setup and Use Start protecting data fast, no special knowledge or training required.
Designed, Manufactured, Sold, and Serviced by Tandberg Data The world’s SMB data protection experts for over 35 years.
