Designed for small business applications and remote location environments, the NEO 100s offers up to 27TB of data storage capacity in a compact, 1U rack-mount form factor that includes a single LTO4 or LTO5 tape drive. With more than 2x the storage density and 7x higher reliability than comparable products on the market, the NEO 100s provides customers with entry-level backup and archive applications at a significantly lower cost of ownership.
