Iomega Announces the Next Revolution in Storage: The Iomega REV System

Iomega Corporation (NYSE:IOM) , a global leader in data storage, today announced that the first product based on its RRD technology, the new Iomega(R) REV(TM) 35GB/90GB (native/compressed)* system, is on schedule for an expected product launch in March of 2004.
Next week, Iomega will display working prototypes of Iomega REV drives in a variety of applications during Comdex Las Vegas 2003, November 17-19, in its meeting space at the Venetian Hotel.
With price and performance advantages over traditional tape backup systems, the soon-to-be released Iomega REV system is designed for state-of-the-art backup and high capacity portable storage for small and medium-sized businesses and enterprise workgroups. The Iomega REV drive also marks the next great advance in desktop portable storage, giving businesses that use large files — and everyday computer enthusiasts — the performance of an external hard drive and the infinite storage expandability of Iomega’s highest-capacity removable storage system.
“The Iomega REV drive is revolutionary, combining the high speed, reliability and ease of use of hard drive technology with the advantages of removability and low cost of tape,” said Werner Heid, president and CEO, Iomega Corporation. “When our customers see how the price and performance advantages of the Iomega REV system transform their existing network and desktop backup systems, they won’t go back to using high-maintenance tape drives, fragile tape backup media, or other removable storage options.”
