Rugged. Removable. Ready.
The PowerVault RD1000 removable hard disk cartridge is the sensible solution that lets you quickly protect all of your important information and take it with you. Removable disk media are built with a tough exterior design and internal shock absorbers so they are rugged enough to withstand a fall from nearly one meter. Built-in bumpers on the PowerVault RD1000 are designed to:
- Prevent vibration
- Increase durability when transporting
- Enable the PowerVault RD1000 to be oriented in either horizontal or vertical positions
Range of Capacity Options
Removable disk cartridges are available in capacities of 320GB, 500GB and 1TB — storing up to the equivalent of 36 DVDs worth (320 GB) of information in a portable format. For added protection and enhanced disaster recovery, multiple removable disk cartridges can be rotated daily or weekly, on-site and off-site.
Each removable disk cartridge is read/write compatible with any PowerVault RD1000 dock, which can be placed in multiple locations, so that your information can be taken with you wherever and whenever you need to work.
Cost-Effective and Future-Proof
The initial setup cost is minimal compared to other entry level, tape-based solutions. Drive and cartridges are more durable, resulting in lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Test results show a life expectancy of 30 years or more for removable disk cartridges. Plus the PowerVault RD1000 doesn't require any cleaning cartridges. It is a truly cost-effective solution suitable for single offices or departmental users.
Faster Backup and Access
The Dell PowerVault RD1000 has high-performance disk-based speed and access — backing up to 108 GB/hr and giving near-instant file retrieval.
