Iomega ships disk-based small business backup

Iomega (http://www.iomega.com/na/landing.jsp) Wednesday announced the availability of a removable disk backup (http://www.networkworld.com/newsletters/sbt/2005/1003networker3.html) product that makes it easier for small businesses (http://www.networkworld.com/topics/smb.html) to protect data easier and faster.

The REV Loader 560 consists of an external autoloader that contains as many as eight 70GB REV disk drives for a total capacity of 560GB. It connects to the server it is backing up via a USB 2.0 interface.

The REV Loader 560 is meant to replace tape libraries and autoloaders, which are dogged by slow performance and media problems. It offers a 30M bytes/sec data transfer rate -- ten times the speed of many tape alternatives.

The loader can read and write older 35GB disk cartridges. Bundled with the loader is CA's (http://www.networkworld.com/news/financial/ca.html) BrightStor ARCserve Backup for Windows software. Password protection and encryption provide additional data security.

Iomega's REV Loader differs from Tandberg's RDX (http://www.networkworld.com/news/2006/100906-tandberg.html) or Quantum's GoVault (http://www.networkworld.com/newsletters/sbt/2006/0313networker3.html) disk-based backup technologies in the cost of the disk cartridges and drive technology.

The Iomega REV Loader 560 desktop autoloader is US$1,600. Iomega REV 70GB disks are available for $69 each or in four-packs for $250.
