Olixir Adds Highest Capacity Ruggedized Drive

Olixir Technologies Adds Industry’s Highest-Capacity Ruggedized Removable/External Hard Drive to Mobile DataVault Family of Transportable Hard Drives

High-Performance Ruggedized 750GB Mobile DataVault 3DX Ideal for Protecting, Archiving, Transporting Critical Data – Replaces Tape with Removable-Disk Architecture.

MILPITAS, Calif. – Nov. 29, 2006– Olixir Technologies, a provider of technologically advanced ruggedized, transportable data storage solutions, today announced the launch of the industry’s highest capacity ruggedized removable/external hard drive – the 750GB Mobile DataVault 3DX. The high-capacity transportable hard drive incorporates Olixir’s patented shock protection technology which provides up to 1,200 Gs of non-operational shock protection making it an ideal storage solution for applications such as data storage, data archival, and disaster recovery which require the frequent handling and physical transportation of large amounts of data.

The versatile Mobile DataVault 3DX Transportable External Hard Drive can be used as a standalone storage device with a Centronics interface that supports USB 2.0, Firewire, Serial ATA, and PCMCIA cables. For more complex storage requirements, the Mobile DataVault 3DX can be used as a removable data cartridge with Olixir’s 5.25” docking bay, desktop Plug-and-Play USB 2.0/Firewire chassis, and chassis-based/rackmount tape replacement solutions: FastRestore SE Backup and Disaster Recovery System, and the RAID 5 FastRestore Enterprise system

“As businesses and government agencies transition quickly to a paperless world, technologies such as digital signatures are driving the capability for organizations to execute even the most complex legal documents digitally without the need to physically put pen to paper,” explained Darshan Shah, President of Olixir Technologies. “While this has the effect of streamlining business processes and reducing time to complete transactions, it creates a critical need to employ a reliable, durable storage solution that ensures the permanency of the data, while still maintaining the capability to immediately access the documents on demand. Our Mobile DataVault product family delivers, and exceeds, the reliability and durability of legacy tape backup systems, but provides the random access capability and speeds of disk drives. In addition, our transportable Mobile DataVault products are the most durable external drives on the market, making them the ideal solution for any storage environment that requires the physical handling or transportation of the media. This is the premier disk-based tape replacement solution in the industry.”

Mobile DataVault 3DX Product Specifications

The 7,200 RPM Mobile DataVault 3DX includes 8MB of cache memory, allowing it to transfer a GB of data in less than 50 seconds. An easy-to-install data storage solution for any computing platform, the Mobile DataVault 3DX utilizes an innovative, versatile interface that can be used interchangeably with Olixir’s USB 2.0, Firewire, and PCMCIA cables interfaces. In addition, the hot-swappable Mobile DataVault 3DX has the ability to use Olixir’s 5.25-inch DataBay, so that the external drive functions as a removable drive, for desktop PC’s or other chassis making it an ideal tape-replacement solution for media rotation and offsite archival. The Mobile DataVault 3DX supports plug-and-play and hot-swap operation with Macintosh OS 8.6 and higher, Windows 2000/ME/XP and Linux operating systems.

At a height of 1.40 inches, width of 4.45 inches and length of 7.5 inches, Mobile DataVault 3DX is about the size of a VHS tape and compact enough to fit into the palm of a hand – making it transportable in any briefcase, safe, cabinet or other external storage container. Weighing in at a little over a pound, the Mobile DataVault 3DX can easily be moved. The 3DX package integrates a rugged cooling system for improved reliability.

Available in 160GB, 250GB, 400GB, 500GB, and 750GB capacities, Olixir’s Mobile DataVault 3DX drives are available now through PC Mall, Envoy Data, Westwood Computer, and other resellers worldwide at list prices of $289, $379, $569, $719, and $819 respectively, with USB 2.0 cable.
