Many small business customers have limited time, knowledge, experience or desire to dedicate to backup and therefore currently have no or very rudimentary backup processes in place. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System offers these customers a complete backup solution that is simple to implement and easy to use.
- Fast backup and restore
Staff productivity and thus customer service can be negatively impacted by the lengthening backup window and restore/recovery times associated with optical backup solutions. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a backup solution that backs up and retrieves data quickly and reliably thus optimizing application availability and staff productivity.
- Affordable cost of ownership
Many small business customers have limited IT budget available for data protection with business owners wanting to reduce IT capital and operational expenditure and protect IT investments to optimize business profitability. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a complete backup solution that has low initial acquisition costs and low on-going media and upgrade costs.
- Removability and portability

The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a backup solution that enables onsite backup data to be removed, stored and rotated off-site in an easy, safe and secure way.
The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System provides a docking station specified for more than 10,000 load and unloads and an HP RDX cartridge specified for over 5,000 load and unloads and long life expectancy.

Adding capacity is a simple matter of adding cartridges to an existing HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System USB docking station. The HP RDX Removable Disk Backup System docking Station will work with all current as well future higher capacity cartridges as they are introduced.
