Iomega (NYSE:IOM) has unveiled the third generation of its REV removable backup disk technology designed for small and midsize businesses and remote workgroups. Iomega REV 120GB Backup Drive is expected to be available worldwide in April.

Iomega's patented REV technology divides its components into a drive bay and convenient, low-cost removable disk. Designed for zero maintenance, it is sealed against outside air contamination and features transfer rates of up to 35MB per second, extensive third-party software support, and an estimated 30-year archival life.

"Iomega's removable REV platform is a proven technology that delivers performance and ruggedness that no tape product can match," Tom Kampfer, president and COO of Iomega, said in a statement.
