is RDX still relevant? what is it still being used for in production environments?

Absolutely still relevant for those that don't want or can't use a cloud backup and want/need the convenience of a tape-like cartridge function. Which means primarily the smaller side of the SMB realm. Otherwise, for easy and frequent physical movement of data from one location to another. The cartridges are pretty robust, a helluva lot tougher than your generic 2.5" USB drive.

I still have customers using them.

They've proven themselves to be worthwhile over time.
Good performance and the carts rarely go bad.

I like the stand alone USB dock rather than the one for a 5.25" bay.

I may be installing another new RDX backup for a customer soon.

thanks for the heads up, i will try to find this stuff a good home rather than allowing it to land in the dumpster. one kind of odd item is a rack mount 12 RDX drive chassis. looks to connect to a host with either eSata or eSAS, cant tell till i pull the cable at the end of the month.
