NEO 8000 Overview:

NEO 8000e provides the long-term data storage and archiving solution for organizations with massive amounts of data. Embedded robustness, flexibility and intelligence are the cornerstone of the NEO 8000e, making it the ideal solution for the most demanding data centers.

Besides its people, a company's data is one of its most valuable assets. Keeping that data securely protected has become complex and expensive as companies are faced with massive data growth, increasingly stringent regulatory requirements and distributed environments that can range from across-the-hall to across-the-globe. The Overland Storage NEO 8000e provides the reliability, data availability and manageability features needed to address the backup and archive needs of the most demanding enterprise data centers.

With This Product You Can...

  • Address enterprise-level backup and archive requirements with up to 3PB of data storage
  • Meet backup windows and improve efficiency with high-performance data transfer rates … up to 24 TB/hr
  • Maximize data availability with redundant robotics, redundant components, and remote failover
  • Connect through multiple interfaces simultaneously with the embedded interface architecture
  • Easily customize your capacity, performance, and connectivity to meet your needs

Superior Cost of Ownership

Embedded connectivity capability ensures that your NEO 8000e not only fits seamlessly into virtually any environment but also adapts to any changes in that environment, protecting your initial library investment for the long-haul. Features such as integrated partitioning let you multi-task with your NEO 8000e library, allocating each partition to a separate backup task or environment without requiring additional costly hardware. Consuming less power than other enterprise-class tape libraries, NEO 8000e improves energy efficiency by reducing cooling and power requirements. Designed for enterprise environments but delivering midrange simplicity, NEO 8000e's simplified configuration and installation approach results in lower installation, maintenance and service costs, making NEO 8000e a wise storage investment.

Intelligent Management

The NEO 8000e conveniently and intelligently manages the backup/archive process from anywhere in the world through a web-based remote management interface, reducing administrative costs and improving data availability. Features such as email alerts proactively identify potential issues with your backup/archive operation and provide diagnostic information used to isolate potential failures, reducing service costs and downtime associated with problem resolution.

High Data Availability

Whether it’s robotic failover, redundant hot-swap power, high-performance tape drive management or advanced diagnostics capabilities, NEO 8000e eliminates single points of failure that can result in costly downtime. Unlike other midrange and enterprise libraries, NEO 8000e provides redundant robotics in scaled environments, ensuring that you have access to your data in the event of a robotic failure. Designed to meet the reliability, availability and serviceability needs of backup and archive operations in high-performance, high duty cycle data center environments, NEO 8000e provides a robust, reliable platform that ensures your data is automatically safe and always available.

Flexibility

NEO 8000e’s innovative multi-module design lets you effortlessly customize your backup and archive solution as your data storage needs change. Starting with 100 cartridge slots and adding capacity in 80-slot increments lets you seamlessly add storage as you need it but does not require additional hardware or disruptive reconfiguration. Tape drive modules can also be added for increased performance capability. Once you’ve filled up your base NEO 8000e, simply add an additional NEO 8000e module for increased storage capacity and performance.

Expandability/Scalability

Expandability/Scalability

NEO Series expandability/scalability features allow you to dynamically adjust your storage capacity and performance as your data storage needs change, adapting to ever-changing environments with a minimal amount of disruption while protecting your original library investment.

Highlights
  • NEO 8000e can be scaled up to 1,000 cartridge slots and 24 tape drives by adding a 2nd module to the base unit, providing enterprise class functionality.
  • NEO 2000e and NEO 4000e can be scaled with either additional NEO 2000e modules or NEO 4000e modules, for an almost limitless combination of capacity and performance designed to specifically fit your storage needs
  • Flexible expandability and scalability allow you to reconfigure multi-module units and redeploy them as needed
Why You Need It...
  • Provides the flexibility to meet changing data storage requirements
Upgradable Tape Drives

Upgradable Tape Drives

Avoid those dreaded forklift upgrades when new tape technologies become available. With NEO Series libraries, you can upgrade your drives and media on the fly. Installing and removing tape drives in is quick and easy. LTO drives maintain backward compatibility to previous generation tapes, so you won’t orphan any data during the upgrade process. This approach not only protects your investment, but also minimizes administrative overhead, and reduces service/maintenance costs.

Highlights
  • Users can easily remove/replace tape drives to provide effortless upgrades to next-generation tape drive technologies
  • Downtime costs are eliminated by enabling end user replacement of tape drives (no waiting for a service tech to show up)
  • Tape drives can easily be added to existing tape libraries for increased performance and efficiency
  • Tape drives can be interchanged between NEO libraries for increased investment protection
Why You Need It...
  • Protects your original library investment and reduces administrative overhead
Partitioning

Partitioning

NEO Series partitioning capability allows you to configure a single physical library into multiple virtual libraries.

Highlights
  • Improves efficiency of the backup/archive process by enabling multi-tasking within the same library
  • Enables you to configure a single NEO library to interface with different backup servers, regardless of their connectivity type (SCSI, SAS, FC, etc.)
  • Protects your investment by allowing you to simultaneously use a single NEO library with a variety of backup software applications
Why You Need It...
  • To maximize efficiency and improve cost of ownership
