Overland Data automates DLT8000
Last month, Overland Data began shipping DLT8000-equipped Loader Xpress, MinilibraryXpress, Library Xpress, and EnterpriseXpress libraries. The DLT8000 has a 40GB native capacity and a 6MBps transfer rate, shortening backup and restore cycles by as much as 20% compared to the DLT7000, according to Overland officials. The DLT800 also features an improved head life of 50,000 hours, vs. 30,000 for the 7000, and is backward read/write compatible with previous models. MSRP pricing for Overland`s DLT8000 automation line-up ranges from $12,095 for the LoaderXpress to $41,140 for the EnterpriseXpress.
