Fast-Growing Robotics Engineering Center Armed With Versatile, Expandable Disk- and Tape-Based Storage Solutions
Source: Overland Storage
The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University conducts basic and applied research in robotics technologies to boost the productivity and competitiveness of businesses throughout the United States. The company's rapid data growth drove need for scalable storage capacity and inability to react quickly to overnight surges in storage requirements. Their existing outdated tape library with DLT tape technology required upgrade and decentralized backups were inconsistent and posed security concerns. In evaluating tape- and disk-based solutions, NREC rated products based on ease of use, centralized management, form factor, scalability, availability, interoperability and price. The Overland NEO 4100 offered the most compelling value proposition.
