Tandberg acquires ProStor RDX Business

Tandberg Data announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the RDX business from ProStor Systems and with this it will acquire the RDX business, including intellectual property rights. RDX technology is a disk-based removable storage system with portable cartridges that combines the benefits of tape—reliability, portability, archive life and low cost—with the performance, speed, random access and ease of use of hard disk technology.

“The acquisition of the RDX business further solidifies Tandberg Data’s position in the data protection market. In the past year, we have expanded our product portfolio with new data protection products and appliances, and acquired our manufacturing facility in China. With the ownership of the RDX technology, we will be able to strengthen relationships with our customers, partners and RDX licensees, and grow the RDX business.” said Patrick Clarke, CEO, Tandberg Data.

Tandberg Data will work closely together with current RDX license partners, to further grow the removable disk market through continued investment in R&D, sales and marketing of the RDX technology.

“We look forward to working with our license partners on developing the RDX technology and growing the RDX customer base,” says Pat Clarke. “We will support partners like Imation in developing their RDX business. We have a long standing history of cooperation with Imation and we look forward to further strengthening this relationship.”
