Overland Storage unveils new family of automated tape libraries

Provides backup, disaster recovery and archive capabilities

By CBR Staff Writer

Overland Storage has launched the new NEOs family of automated tape libraries, which provide backup, disaster recovery and archive capabilities.

The new line of tape libraries includes the NEO 200s, a compact 2u model that provides up to 38.4TB of capacity and the NEO 400s, an expandable library that packs up to 76.8TB of capacity in a 4u form factor to maximise capacity while minimising costly rack space, the company said.

According to the company, the new family features web-based remote management and diagnostics; removable cartridge magazines that expedite access to data while reducing media handling costs; an integrated barcode reader to facilitate fast media tracking; and user-configurable mail slots for easy, secure access to individual tape cartridges; expandability for increased capacity as data storage needs change; and encryption to ensure data confidentiality and compliance.

Overland Storage said that the NEOs libraries utilise HP LTO3 and LTO4 tape drives that can be removed, replaced and upgraded as needed. Connectivity flexibility is provided through SCSI, Fibre Channel and SAS configuration options. Additionally, the NEO 400s provides redundant power and partitioning to provide optimum library utilisation.
