Overland puts price pressure on DLT library market
Starting at $4,995, Overland Data`s LoaderXpress DLT library may introduce overdue price competitiveness in the low-end DLT market. The desktop library, or "loader," uses a cartridge magazine design typically found in higher-end libraries. An entry-level configuration includes a DLT4000 drive with a five-cartridge magazine, for a native capacity of 100GB. The high-end model 710 is based on a DLT7000 drive and 10-cartridge magazine, for a native capacity of 350GB and a maximum throughput of 18GB per hour.
The LoaderXpress is compatible with Windows NT, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and NetWare, as well as storage management software from Computer Associates` Cheyenne division, Legato, and Seagate Software.
