RDX® QuikStation® 8 is an iSCSI network-attached removable disk array with eight integrated RDX drives. It is designed to provide a flexible platform for data protection and off-site disaster recovery for physical or virtual SMB and SME environments. If combined with 5TB RDX media, it provides up to 40TB online storage with unlimited offline storage capacity.

Why Choose RDX QuikStation 8?

Configuration Flexibility

RDX QuikStation 8 provides removable data protection for any system/s 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.

Flexible and Simple

It is designed to be enormously flexible while being simple to setup and manage. The onboard multi-language web-based management console provides for remote configuration, control, security, and management from a standard web browser. RDX QuikStation 8 offers automatic software updates / maintenance via the internet.

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

This edition supports cluster environments such as Windows Server Failover Clustering. Upon installation, clustered volumes are identified and handled correctly. The clustered volumes, quorums, and system volume (mirrored volume) are also properly restored and usable.

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.


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.

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.

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.

Protected mode for logical volume configurations

Ensures high data availability by providing fault tolerance of RDX media.

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.

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.

Network Attached RDX

Simple installation & deployment utilizing existing infrastructure and widespread networking expertise. Perfect solution for consolidating multiple RDX operations.

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.

2 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) port

Ensures fast access to data with up to 2000MB/s.

Optional 2nd power supply

Eliminates single point of failure in case of a power failure.

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.

Three-year Advances Replacement Service

Backed worldwide by Overland-Tandberg’s exceptional service. In addition, warranty service upgrade packages are available.

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.
