BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  Tandberg Data, the global supplier of data protection solutions for the SMB, today announced that it has sold more than 180,000 RDX removable disk systems and 500,000 RDX cartridges to OEMs, resellers and distributors worldwide, solidifying its position as the market leader in providing business-class RDX removable disk systems to the SMB market for complete data protection.

As the first company to manufacture and ship RDX technology, Tandberg Data continues to take the lead in launching innovative RDX solutions with its recent introduction of the RDX® QuikStor™ with AccuGuard™, a powerful backup and recovery solution that leverages deduplication technology.
