300GB RDX cartridge debuts

Imation today announced the addition of a 300GB cartridge to its family of RDX removable disk cartridges. The RDX system is a low-end tape replacement solution designed to provide small and medium-sized businesses with easy and reliable backups while accommodating security needs as well as potential expansion. Each RDX cartridge houses a high-capacity 2.5-inch hard drive in a shock-proof design that allows the cartridge to sustain a fall from up to one meter, according to Imation, all while boasting transfer rates of up to 45MB/sec for 100GB of data backup in less than one hour. Connectivity options include SATA as well as external USB, and RDX disk cartridge capacities range from 40GB to 300GB to suit specific needs.

The Imation RDX system also includes EMC Retrospect software for fast backups and accurate restores as well as full disaster recovery with minimal manual effort or expertise, boasting government-certified 256-bit AES encryption to protect data. RDX removable cartridges are priced from $300 (40GB capacity) to $500 (300GB capacity).

    Low end replacement?

    $300. for a 40GB cartridge? With the low price of hard drives now I thought the tape backup market was dead. Even if that's a typical MNN typo, it still doesn't make sense.
