Overland Continues to Invest in Tape

New NEO 600s (4 drives/72 slots) and 800s (6/96) LTO-5 libraries

Overland Storage, Inc. announced the availability of NEO 600s and NEO 800s, two new additions to its line of automated tape libraries aimed at offering more choices for tape deployments.

Fueling the expansion of the tape storage market is an increased demand for flexible solutions designed to address business data growth combined with the increasing acknowledgment of tape's cost-effectiveness over de-duplicated disk.

Research from analysts at Enterprise Strategy Group indicates: "Tape is the predominant storage media used for data protection due to its portability and, from an acquisition cost perspective, its price." As tape capacities continue to out-ship disk capacities and "the use of tape now dominates archiving over internal disk, external disk or cloud… tape's lead is expected to grow during the next five years, demonstrating 45 percent annual growth by 2015."

Features of the NEO 600s and NEO 800s
In response to the demand for more long-term data storage and archiving capacity, Overland Storage has added the NEO 600s and NEO 800s to its NEO portfolio. NEO 600s and NEO 800s solve the data storage protection challenges that businesses face when budgets are limited and users demand more storage capacity. NEO 600s packs up to 216TB of backup and archive capacity into a 6U form factor while NEO 800s provides up to 244TB in an 8U form factor, making both solutions for data centers that need large amounts of storage capacity. In addition NEO 600s and NEO 800s feature multi-drive support for increased performance, redundant power for increased data availability and remote management for ease of use and reduced administrative overhead. Utilizing LTO-5 tape drive technology, NEO 600s and NEO 800s allows businesses to leverage the efficiencies of new linear tape file system (LTFS) technology, allowing disk-like 'drag & drop' functionality on a tape.

Overland Customers Discuss Tape Usage
Overland Storage recently conducted a nationwide survey of its customers in the United States to learn more about how they use Overland tape libraries.

Tape storage remains a vital and irreplaceable component of the datacenter:
  • Half of respondents said that their business could not manage without tape storage
  • 56% of respondents said they keep data on disk for a month or less before moving it to tape
  • 74% of respondents are using tape storage for onsite backups and 63% are using tape storage for offsite backups and disaster recovery
  • 80% of respondents do not believe that archiving to the cloud will replace tape storage
Industry analyst research, Overland Storage customer survey data and the overall growth in the tape storage marketplace confirm that tape-based storage remains a critical part of any data protection strategy due to its cost of ownership, portability, lower energy consumption, long shelf life, robust design and compact footprint advantages. In response to the increasing IT demand for Overland Storage's tape-based solutions, Overland added NEO 600s and NEO 800s to their NEO line of automated tape libraries to provide users with additional choices in capacity, performance, features and affordability to address their data storage challenges.
