Removable Disk Drive vs. Other Storage

Removable disk drive versus other storage

The benefits of using a high-capacity, removable disk drive and accompanying cartridge like Dell PowerVault RD1000 are evident when compared to alternative backup media. Rugged, removable disk media offers increased portability and durability over standard USB-based hard drive storage. The PowerVault RD1000 cartridges are built to withstand a fall from nearly one meter so they are very durable, and the removable disk cartridges are small and lightweight and can be stored off-site for better disaster recovery protection. PowerVault RD1000 provides easy expandability — when you reach capacity with one removable disk cartridge, just insert in a new one. There's no need to buy additional hardware. PowerVault RD1000 includes backup software that provides data protection for faster data restores and reduced downtime.

PowerVault RD1000 features a protective disk drive cartridge that is available in 320GB*, 500GB*, 750GB*, 1TB*, and 1.5TB* capacities. The RD removable disk cartridges are all interchangeable and preformatted. Archiving a collection of PowerVault RD1000 disk cartridges takes considerably less room than a similar amount of DVDs or CDs — it would take over 200 standard DVDs to hold the volume of a single 1TB removable disk cartridge — all while saving shelf space.

Intuitive Management

The PowerVault RD1000 provides Symantec Backup Exec Quickstart software for a complete backup of all of your system data. This easy-to-use software includes backup protection for Windows user and bare metal disaster recovery on all compatible Dell PowerEdge server and Dell Workstations.

Symantec Backup Exec Quickstart included with the PowerVault RD1000 provides easy-to-use, backup and disaster recovery capabilities to protect files, as well as all user data to help provide faster restores and reduced downtime.
Hard Drive Speed and Reliability

Hard Drive Speed and Reliability

The PowerVault RD1000 removable disk cartridge contains a SATA II hard drive, the same technology that Dell uses across the PowerVault™ disk storage line, the PowerEdge™ server line, and the Dell Precision™ Workstations external drive. SATA II hard drive technology is a reliable, industry-standard for storage, and an ideal long-term and durable media. Files transfer to the PowerVault RD1000 at about the same time it would take to save to your regular PC drive, up to 30MB/sec - much faster than backing up to standard tape, and without the hassle of swapping out media due to capacity constraints.

Tough and Compact Form

The PowerVault RD1000 functions lying flat or on its edge, and its compact profile takes up very little space on a desk, or close to your server, allowing a backup solution that doesn't require rethinking your office arrangement. The removable disk cartridge is designed for durability, and easily fits into a briefcase, backpack, or even a coat pocket. The PowerVault RD1000's simple plug-and-play USB connection allows you to backup more than one system, or move it from home to office as you need. Each removable disk drive cartridge weighs about as much as a mobile phone, and is only slightly larger.
