August 30th, 2012

To simplify reliable and cost-effective network backup in SMB environments NovaStor certifies Imation’s hard disk library RDX A8 for NovaBACKUP DataCenter

Agoura Hills / (CA) USA, Hamburg / Germany, Zug / Switzerland, August 30, 2012 – Data protection specialist NovaStor announced today the certification of Imation’s hard disk storage library RDX A8 for use with its enterprise backup software. With NovaBACKUP DataCenter and RDX A8, small and medium-sized companies benefit from a cost-effective, yet high performance and easily scalable alternative to tape library backup.

Cost-effective Network Backup with NovaStor and Imation
With the eight RDX removable disk cartridges configured for 1 TB drives, SMBs can access up to 8 TB of data simultaneously. The multi-bay RDX A8 networked storage array may be accessed as either a backup target or as online storage.

NovaBACKUP DataCenter views the RDX A8 as tape library allowing SMBs to benefit from the removable media and management options usually reserved for tape libraries. If distributed locations such as satellite offices are equipped with the Imation RDX A8 all backups at these locations can be managed in one location using NovaBACKUP DataCenter’s central management.

As enterprise-level backup software NovaBACKUP DataCenter supports the operation of the Imation RDX A8 in disk and tape library mode – allowing for full flexibility. NovaStor’s solution is optimized for easy scalability and allows for extreme data loads. With NovaBACKUP DataCenter companies take advantage of the flexible capacity of the Imation RDX A8, its fast access times, high data transfer rates, and ruggedized media for reliable performance.
