IBM Power Systems I/O Improves Performance, Virtualization, and Physical Footprint Efficiency

The Power 755 model E8C high performance computing (HPC) is adding support for the previously announced RDX 160 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB, and 1 TB removable disk drives used in the EU04 external RDX docking stations. RDX offers an excellent entry tape alternative to tapes such as the DAT80/160. In addition to price and performance advantages, it is an extremely durable media and can typically be used far longer than entry tape alternatives.


The PowerLinux 7R1 model L1C supports the RDX USB External Docking Station for Removable Disk Cartridge


Several I/O enhancements to the Power Systems product line improve performance, virtualization, price/performance ratio, and physical footprint efficiency:

  • RDX USB  External Docking Station #EU04
  • USB 500 GB Removable Disk Drive #1107
  • 1 TB  Removable Disk Drive Cartridge #EU01
  • RDX 320 GB Removable Disk Drive #EU08
