Ecrix Corporation was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1996 by Juan Rodriguez
and Kelly Beavers, former co-founders of two other major tape storage companies.
Their goal was to provide a tape solution to the problem of ever-increasing
demand for cost-effective, reliable data storage that can be used across the
widest range of computing systems, network configurations and application
The VXA tape format is the first real technological breakthrough in
the tape industry in over a decade. VXA's unique approach eliminates the
pitfalls encountered with conventional streaming tape devices, improving data
availability and interchangeability, backup and restore job times, and
price:performance. VXA technology enables a simpler and more inherently reliable
design - eliminating many of the mechanical and electrical components that add
to the complexity and cost of streaming tape drives.
More than just another tape drive, VXA re-invents tape storage.
