Overland Tape Products Interoperable with Emulex HBAs

Overland Data has certified Emulex Corp.’s LightPulse 2Gb/s LP90002L host bus adapters (HBAs) for use in 2Gb/s Storage Area Network (SAN) environments featuring Overland tape libraries.

According to Overland Data, during certification testing, the 2 Gb/s SANs were powered by Emulex LP90002L HBAs, Overland’s Fibre Channel Option (FCO) card and a 2 Gb/s switch, all run on Computer Associates BrightStor Enterprise Backup for Windows NT/2000 software. All configurations utilized Overland’s 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel Option card, and backed up data to Overland’s Neo LXN2000 and Neo LXN4000 modular nonstop tape libraries.

Overland has previously certified Emulex Fibre Channel HBAs, including the LP8000, LP850 and the 2Gb/s LP952L, to diversify its 1-2 Gb/s SAN offerings in Windows NT/2000 and Solaris environments.

Overland’s Neo series tape library and Fibre Channel Option card and the Emulex LP9002L HBA have also been certified “ca smart” by Computer Associates with BrightStor Enterprise Backup on Windows NT/2000 using their SAN option.
