Overland Storage Leaps Forward in the Tape Revolution With LTO6 Offerings
New LTO6 Technology Increases Speed by 50% and
Provides 100% More Capacity to Award-Winning NEO Series Tape Libraries
Overland Storage today announced availability of
groundbreaking LTO-6 technology in the company's line of NEO Series tape
libraries. NEO Series libraries with LTO6 combine the latest in tape technology
advancements. Providing up to 6.25TB of storage capacity on a single data
cartridge, the new LTO6 technology now increases user storage capacities by more
than twice that of previous generation technology. Incredibly fast data transfer
rates of up to 1.4TB/hr per tape drive enable users to back up and retrieve data
at lightning-fast speeds. When LTO6 tape drives are incorporated into a
NEO-Series tape library, users can take advantage of storage capacities ranging
from 56TB to 6.3PB and move data at speeds ranging from 576GB/hr up to 35TB/hr.
These capacity and performance increases, as well as embedded LTFS technology
which provides "drag & drop" tape functionality, continue to put tape at the
forefront of long-term data storage.
With this next generation of LTO technology, we see tape
moving from just being included in the data center game plan into a starring
role. LTO6 tape will have a significant density advantage, more capacity on a
per form factor basis, ease of use with LTFS, and a significant throughput
advantage on a per device basis.
NEO Series tape libraries are designed to meet a variety of
data storage requirements across the enterprise. Whether it's small office or
remote location data storage needs that are easily and affordably addressed by
the NEO S-Series, or enterprise high-performance, high data availability
operations addressed by the NEO E-Series, the NEO Series libraries provide the
features, reliability and affordability needed by companies of all shapes and
Customers who choose a NEO Series tape library with LTO6 will
see an immediate cost of ownership advantage. Combining the incredible storage
capacity and speed of LTO6 with NEO's feature-rich capabilities, compact form
factors, superior reliability and unmatched affordability mean there's no better
option for long-term data storage. The amount of early demand we've seen from
customers for LTO6, and the fact that the tape market is expected to grow 45
percent through 2015, is a clear indicator that tape is now, and will be for the
foreseeable future, a critical component of any data center storage hierarchy.
