Overland Storage overhauls tape library and SnapServers

Bigger tape library and SnapServer

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Overland Storage has announced a larger and LTO-5-supporting NEO tape library as well as a higher-capacity SnapServer.

These are two evolutionary product moves by Overland and it's good to see the company improving its products as it climbs out of a period of poor company revenue performance.

The NEO 8000e supports the latest LTO-5 tape format with transfer rates of up to 24TB/hour, and can expand to a 3PB compressed data capacity, with up to 1000 cartridges and 24 tape drives. It can connect to host systems using SAS or Fibre Channel interfaces. Overland says its ability to store up to 1.5PB of data in less than 7ft2 of data centre floor space makes it space-efficient.

The SnapServer N2000 is a 2U, 12-drive system that can expanded up to 144TB with E2000 expansion units. Like other SnapServers it provides both iSCSI block and network-attached storage (NAS) file-based access to data. Fast SAS and high-capacity SATA disk drives can be mixed in the system. Its feature set includes replication, snapshot capability for both file and iSCSI volumes, instant capacity expansion, and the ability to manage multiple SnapServer devices from a single console. SnapServers are intended for use by small and medium businesses.

The NEO 8000e is available immediately with a manufacturer's recommended price (MSRP) of $47,999. The SnapServer N2000 is available with configurations starting from $4,999 MSRP.

Until September 24, customers buying a NEO 8000e and 8000 will have a free upgrade to a capability to store up to 1.2PB at no additional cost. Additionally, customers who buy a SnapServer NAS N2000 can double their capacity from 4TB to 8TB for free until September 24.

Why the two month special promo deal? Is something happening after that? ®
