NEO Series Tape Libraries & Autoloaders Now Support LTO-7 with Increased Capacity

Sphere 3D Corp and Overland Storage, today announced that its NEO Series of tape libraries and autoloaders, now support the LTO-7 (Linear Tape-Open 7) tape format. Sphere 3D’s support of the recently unveiled LTO-7 tape technology expands the company’s portfolio of offerings that equip large-scale, hybrid environments with lower cost, more energy efficient and increasingly reliable data storage and archiving solutions.

 NEO Series tape libraries provide a compelling, cost-effective and long-term storage solution by delivering best-in-class features for SMB and enterprise backup and archive applications. When configured with LTO-7, NEO tape libraries and autoloaders are designed to deliver up to 140% increases in storage capacity and more than 80% increases in data throughput.

Next-generation LTO-7 technology provides up to 15 terabytes (TB) of compressed data per cartridge, compared to the 6.25TB offered in previous-generation LTO-6 tape drives. Data transfer rates also occur much more rapidly with LTO-7 at rates of up to 750MB per second, or 2.7TB of data per hour per drive. The NEO Series tape libraries with LTO-7 technology provide customers with solutions capable of delivering up to 8 petabytes (PB) of storage capacity at speeds of up to 64TB/hour for just $.02 per GB.

Tape-based storage continues to be an integral part of the data storage hierarchy as many enterprises recognize it as the most economical approach for the backup and archiving of multiple terabytes to petabytes of data. Also, an increasing number of enterprises desire a dual storage approach and leverage tape backup as an ‘insurance policy’ for long-term, off-site retention to protect some or all of their cloud-based storage. Customers clearly recognizes the ongoing role tape plays as an affordable storage solution with a 114% growth over the last 3 years in the amount of data being stored on tape. Also, the LTO technology roadmap anticipates 120TB on a cartridge and data rates of nearly 10TB/hour. The NEO series gives enterprises the price, capacity, performance and scalability options they are seeking today, while ensuring their investment protection for the future.

Shipments of LTO-7 media will begin in December, with shipments of LTO-7 Drives, Autoloaders and Libraries beginning in Q1 2016.  Contact your BackupWorks.com account rep today for more information.
