Overland NEOs 1x LTO-8 SAS StorageLoader supported?

Post by systeembeheerder » Nov 27, 2017 7:59 pm

Simple question really,
Anyone out here having a Overland NEOs 1x LTO-(6, 7 or 8) SAS StorageLoader that can confirm that tis works with Veeam B&R latest version?

I'm about to buy an "Overland NEOs 1x LTO-8 SAS StorageLoader". I have seen the unofficial tape library list, but this particular library is not on the list.
The "bigger brothers" are on the list, so I have good hopes it will work, but before buying this library it would be great if some one can confirm that it's not just hope, but really checked.
I understand LTO-8 is new, but it would be great to hear the previous version LTO5-6-7 worked with Veeam.

Thanks!

Hi Addy,

While LTO8 can work now without any issues, it’s recommended to wait for the upcoming Veeam B&R Update 3 where we performed full compatibility testing for LTO 8 generation.

Ah, thanks for this Dima!

And considering this device will be an updated: Overland NEOs 1x LTO-7 SAS StorageLoader, would there be anything else in the way that would not make it work?

Addy,

Per library specifications it should work the same way as elder brothers. Found an old but valid whitepaper from Overland.
