Enterprise Strategy Group Names Overland Storage Leader in D2D Storage
Enterprise Strategy Group Names Overland Storage Leader in D2D Storage

Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), a provider of IT-related information to business professionals, named Overland Storage the leader in iSCI-based Disk-to-Disk (D2D) rapid backup. ESG's report highlighted Overland's REO 4000 high-performance backup and recovery appliance, which melds D2D backup, iSCI, and S-ATA drives, as a key application.

 

What has allowed Overland Storage to prosper, where many storage companies that have tried getting mid-sized companies to use D2D storage have failed, is the speed with which its REO 4000 D2D backup storage solution works. Many customers are also won over upon learning that it's a surprising affordable storage answer.

 

A statement issued by ESG said, "Overland has demonstrated its leadership in D2D backup with REO 4000, which delivers an excellent price/performance solution to customers. ESG believes that the combination of iSCS and D2D backup is a killer application, and Overland has emerged as the leader in iSCS disk-based storage."

 

The REO 4000 has a very dynamic character. The appliance can run as a disk or virtual tape, and offers connectivity choices of iSCI and Fiber Channel. Companies that use Overland's REO have found it to be especially easy to install and use, due in part to intelligent software that comes with REO.

 

The main obstacle in getting small and mid-sized businesses to use D2D backup, ESG said in a release was the high cost most managers associated with D2D devices.Viewpoints, an industry publication ESG authors and produces, stated, "SMB companies have strict budget constraints and have been resistant to deploying D2D backup because of the cost. Overland has been gaining success in the SMB market with the REO 4000, leveraging the low cost of iSCS and S-ATA to meet the customers’ budget restrictions."

 

Overland Storage, based in San Diego, CA, has been providing storage solutions to entry-level and midrange businesses for the past 20 years. ESG said that Overland Storage has shipped more units and terabytes of iSCI-based D2D backup than any other company.  Furthermore, offering up its analysis on the future of D2D storage, ESG foresees this class of devices reaching a much wider client base beginning this year forward.
