NEO™ 8000 Library
An enterprise-ready tape archive and storage library.
The NEO 8000 tape Library provides an ideal long-term, low-cost data storage and archiving solution for organizations with large amounts of mission-critical data. The NEO 8000 is robust, flexible, and reliable enough to meet the needs of the most demanding data center environments.
The NEO 8000 is designed to accommodate rapid growth and data center consolidation, with the ability to scale quickly from as few as 85 to as many as 1,000 cartridges-and from 2 to 24 tape drives. It provides almost limitless flexibility with advanced non-stop operation, remote failover, and expansion-on-demand capabilities. And it supports a wide range of connectivity options, including SCSI, Gigabit Ethernet, and fibre channel. The NEO 8000 even includes a unique virtual interface architecture that makes it easy to use multiple interfaces simultaneously and implement future technologies as they become available.

Linear Tape-Open (or LTO) is a magnetic tape data storage technology developed as an open alternative to the proprietary Digital Linear Tape (DLT). The technology was developed and initiated by Seagate, Hewlett-Packard, and IBM. The standard form-factor of LTO technology goes by the name "Ultrium".
1/2" magnetic tape has been used for data storage for more than 50 years. In the mid 1980s, IBM and DEC put this kind of tape into a single reel, enclosed cartridge. IBM called their cartridge 3480. DEC's DLT was later sold to Quantum. Both technologies have evolved since then and are still widely available. LTO Ultrium was developed as a (more or less) drop-in replacement for DLT. This made it easy for robotic tape library vendors to convert their DLT libraries into LTO libraries.
An Ultrium cartridge's dimensions are 102.0 x 105.4 x 21.5 (mm).
An Ultrium drive is expected to read data from a cartridge in its own generation and at least the two prior generations.
An Ultrium drive is expected to write data to a cartridge in its own generation and to a cartridge from the immediate prior generation in the prior generation format.
In September 2007, the LTO consortium announced that over 2 million LTO drives and 80 million LTO cartridges have shipped since the introduction of the format.
