Maxell, a manufacturer of data storage media and energy products, has launched its RDX Storage technology products in Japan.
With this launch, the company has joined the list of other OEM partners of the RDX Storage Alliance which includes industry leaders Dell, Fujitsu, Hitachi (News - Alert), HP, IBM, Imation, NEC, ProStor Systems and Tandberg Data.
The RDX Storage Alliance is a non-profit professional community 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.
"Less than 50 percent 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," Mitsuyuki Nagano, department manager in the Business Planning Department at Maxell said.
"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," Nagano added.
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. RDX removable disks are designed for portability and longevity.
"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," Chen added.
