RDX Media
Rugged, Reliable, Removable

The Overland-Tandberg RDX® technology is a disk-based removable media storage system which offers random access performance and high transfer rate like disk along with the archive life, removability, portability and cost benefits of tape. RDX is the best of disk and tape combined and consists of a drive and removable disk media.

High reliability and easy handling

The Overland-Tandberg RDX media offers a rugged design for maximum data protection and secure handling. The media is well suited for data protection and archiving. It has an electrostatic proof design and is drop protected. New media types have to pass RDX quality tests before they are introduced to the market. This ensures high quality, reliability and durability. The media is keyed, so it is not possible to insert it into the drive in a wrong direction. A write protection switch prevents from deleting or overwriting data.

HDD and SSD versions

The RDX Media is offered in different versions to satisfy various business needs. The HDD-based media is suitable for most backup, archiving and storage tasks. It is available with capacities from 500GB up to 5TB. The SSD-based version fulfills high performance requests and is ideal for data storage and data exchange of big datasets. Its high transfer rate of 330MB/s ensures fast write and read operations. SSD media is ideal for very rough environments, humidity and vibration.

WORM for compliance archiving

RDX WORM media meets an expanded set of regulatory compliance requirements and is ideal for use with a large number of archiving applications, like enterprise content management and document management systems, where data must not be deleted or overwritten. WORM is a software based solution and is available for HDD media up to 4TB.

Protection against Malware Attacks

The RDX RansomBlock feature secures backups on RDX media against virus and ransomware attacks and ensures full recovery in case of infected data and blocked computer systems. The RansomBlock functionality sets all data on the RDX WORM media into a read-only mode. In addition, it allows write operations to RDX media for granted applications and processes.


RDX TENCASE is the ideal solution for transportation and longterm safe-keeping of up to 10 RDX media. RDX TENCASE is a rugged case, which withstands drops, dust and harsh environments. It is water-resistant and can be secured with two padlocks for theftprotection of critical data.

SSD-based RDX Media
Fast Storage Device for Big Data Transfer

The SSD-based media is ideal for data storage and data exchange of large files especially in the media and entertainment environment. Its high transfer rate of up to 330MB/s ensures fast write and read operations.

Rough Environments

The SSD-based RDX media can be perfectly utilized in a rough outdoor environment. It is even more resistant against drops, dust, heat and humidity as the HDD-based media. So it can be used as an outdoor storage device like in film-sets to store movie sequences and send them from the set to the editing studio or to store scientific data.

Premium Device for high Performance Demands

But not only the media and entertainment industry benefits from the fast RDX media, also all applications which need high data transfer and fast file access can deploy the SSD-based device. Short backup windows and the demand on fast recovery times require fast storage devices as well as transferring large files.
