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.


    • 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


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


    • 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

Effortless Installation and Configuration

Simplified installation and configuration improves efficiency and reduces administrative overhead by ensuring that you can begin your backup and archive process quickly.


    • Intuitive management console provides clear, consise guidance on installing and configuring a NEO XL-Series library
    • Web-based remote management provides additional levels of detail to easily customize the backup/archive process suited for your particular needs
  • Seamless expansion of additional modules, or redeployment of scaled configurations, occurs quickly and efficiently

Why You Need It…

  • To improve efficiency and maximize your investment

Superior Density

The ability to store the maximum amount of data in the minimal amount of rack space ensure the best value for your IT budget.


    • Packing up to 500TB of data storage capability and data transfer rates as high as 8.6TB/hr. into a compact 6u form factor provides the most efficient use of valuable rack space
  • The ability to scale up to 3.5PB of capacity and 61TB/hr. of data throughput in a single standard 42u rack further takes NEO XL-Series density leadership the next step further

Why You Need It…

  • Reduces cost of ownership and improves efficiency
