Overland Beefs Up NAS, Tape Library Families
Overland Storage has announced a new SnapServer NAS system and a NEO tape library with LTO-5 tape support. According to this report from sister site InfoStor, two of the key enhancements in the Overland (NASDAQ: OVRL) NEO 8000E tape library are Automation Drive Interface (ADI) technology and embedded partitioning.
Overland Storage's new SnapServer NAS N2000 may be positioned at the high end of the SnapServer line, but it carries a low-end price tag: a 4TB configuration is priced at $4,999 (MSRP) and an 8TB version at $5,999. And until the end of September, users who buy a 4TB N2000 for $4,999 get a free upgrade to an 8TB configuration.
The SnapServer NAS N2000 is designed primarily for file-serving (NAS) applications, but it also supports iSCSI and up to six Gigabit Ethernet ports. Users can scale the N2000 from 1.2TB to 144TB via E2000 expansion units.
Also introduced today, Overland's NEO 8000E is an enhanced version of the company's NEO 8000 series of tape libraries. The LTO-5 tape library scales up to 3PB of capacity and has a data transfer rate of 24TB per hour. Base price is $47,999.
