MacMall Part #: 782768
Manufacturer Part #: OV-LXN901050
DISTRIBUTED ROBOTIC ARCHITECTURE PROVIDES INDUSTRY'S FIRST SCALABLE DATA STORAGE AUTOMATION WITH HIGH AVAILABILITY
- Hot swap tape drives, power supplies, controllers and robotics for high availability - Native Fibre Channel option and server-less backup reduce server workload - Embedded Web TLC provides web-based library monitoring, control and fail-over management - Touch screen display provides intuitive way to view cartridge map, configuration and current status
Exclusive SmartScale Storage The LibraryXpress Neo Series tape library's Distributed Robotic Architecture (DRA) sets the new standard for high availability in tape automation by which all other libraries will be compared. Incorporating the third generation of Overland's expand-able, modular robotics, the Neo Series may be configured with redundant, hot swap drives, power supplies, and robotics. Similar to the separate drive spindles in a RAID disk array, the DRA architecture provides separate robotics for each library module in a multi-module Neo Series system. Each LXN2000 includes a barcode reader which enables a rapid cartridge inventory. In a multi-module system, cartridge inventory is performed simultaneously across all modules.
Flexible Modular Design Allows Customized Configurations The 5U-high LXN2000 library module supports up to two drives and up to 26 media slots, yielding the industry's highest storage per rack U. Up to eight LXN2000 modules may be configured into one Neo Series library system. Each multi-module library system operates as a single virtual library. Modules may be configured with DLT or Super DLT drives allowing you to optimize compatibility, capacity and performance. The Neo Series Compact PCI based Virtual Interface Architecture (VIA™) bay options permit flexible connection to SAN and SAS environments.
Innovative Master Module Fail-Over A significant benefit of the DRA architecture of the Neo Series is the ability of the robotics to continue to operate during possible fault conditions. In multi-module con-figurations, one LXN2000 module is configured as the master controller of the system. The master controller module has a "fail-over" mode whereby another LXN2000 module in the system can take over as the standby master controller. Fail-over management can be managed locally or through the embedded Web TLC accessible with a remote browser.
Optimum Flexibility With Instant Access To Data The Neo Series provides seamless expansion from a single module to a multi-module configuration with up to 16 drives and up to 208 media slots in an industry-standard rack. What's more, the unique integrated XpressChannel™ moves tapes efficiently from module to module, allowing any tape cartridge to be moved to any available drive or media slot in the system. The optional Neo Series internal Fibre Channel interface uses Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) transceiver modules that make it simple to incorporate future interfaces thereby preserving your investment.
Compatibility To Keep You Connected Supports all major operating systems including HP-UX, IBM AIX, Linux, Mac OS, Novell NetWare, SCO UNIX, Sun Solaris, Tru64 UNIX, Windows NT/2000 and more. Seamless compatibility with all leading tape application software.
