Iomega Doubles Capacity Of REV Drive

Iomega Corporation announced its latest breakthrough in high-capacity removable storage for the backup and archive needs of small and medium-sized businesses: the new Iomega REV 70GB Backup Drive.

Now available worldwide in external USB 2.0 and internal ATAPI models, the new Iomega REV 70GB Backup Drive utilizes ruggedized, removable, 2.5 inch 70GB REV disks that double the capacity of first-generation REV 35GB products. In support of its existing REV customers, Iomega REV 70GB Backup Drives offer backward read and write compatibility with first-generation REV 35GB disks.

Iomega's REV 70GB disks can store as much as 140GB of data with compression using standard backup software. EMC Retrospect Express software ships with all desktop REV drives for automatic backup and disaster recovery; REV server solutions come with CA's BrightStor ArcServe Backup software.

Iomega's new REV 70GB Backup Drives feature improved transfer rates of 30 MB/sec. (max), versus 25 MB/sec for first-generation REV 35GB products. Both generations of REV products boast extensive third-party software support, estimated 30 year archival life, and an estimated one million rewrite durability - the kind of performance tape products such as DAT 72 can never match. And while tape products require frequent head cleaning and an expensive tape replacement regime, REV drives and disks are designed for continuous reliable use with zero maintenance.

REV 70GB Backup Drives come with a worldwide three-year warranty. REV 35GB Backup Drives are warranted for 1 year in the Americas and Asia-Pacific, 2 years in Europe.

Later this year, an extensive line of computer interface REV 70GB Backup Drives will be launching worldwide, including FireWire 400 and SATA, REV 70GB automation products, and REV 70GB Server Backup and Disaster Recovery kits.

The Iomega REV 70GB USB 2.0 Backup Drive retails for $599.95, including one REV 70GB disk. The Iomega REV 70GB ATAPI Backup Drive retails for $579.95, including one REV 70GB disk. Iomega REV 70GB disks are available for $69.00 each or in four-packs for $249.99. European pricing for REV 70GB Backup Drives, external USB 2.0 and internal ATAPI models, is 499 Euros, excluding VAT. REV 70GB disks in Europe will retail for 64.9 Euros, excluding VAT for a single disk; or in five-packs for 295 Euros, excluding VAT. All prices are suggested retail.
