Just 2 days ago we received a couple of new storage devices. One is the Iomega Rev and the other is a 160GB USB/Firewire pocket size hard disk.
Both units are really nice gadgets. Especially because they will extend our capacity (for services) very much. Now we have the possibility to make easy the process of backing up information no matter what!

  1. Scenario 1: A Windows PC can make a full back up and store it in its hard disk, but some times the HDD doesn't have the required space. No problem, then the portable HDD can store the backup file without the need of installing any driver. Just to have 2 USB 2.0 ports available. After that the file can be moved to a Rev cartridge that includes 70GB of capacity.
  2. Scenario 2: A small company needs to back up the important documents of each of their PCs. In that case all of them can run the Windows backup and store the file in a file server. When the process is finished (it can be scheduled) then with the Rev unit will be simple to transfer the files to 1 or more cartridge.
Something that I find very interesting is that the REV cartridges are like hard disks. So, you can run applications, drag and drop files, open files. That is a significant advantage if you think on tape backup systems. The Rev unit is portable and you can have as many cartridges as needed. And they are not expensive.
The only problem we found is that we can't make the Windows Backup to store its file directly to a Rev cartridge. I hope to find a solution soon.
