Grand Valley State University Graduates To First-Class Data Protection With Overland Storage's SAN, Backup Appliance And Tape Solutions

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Overland Storage, Inc. (Nasdaq: OVRL) today announced that Grand Valley State University has deployed an economical multi-tiered data protection strategy utilizing Overland's ULTAMUS™ RAID high-density SAN storage, REO SERIES® disk-based backup and recovery appliances as well as NEO SERIES® tape libraries. The integrated, scalable platform seamlessly safeguards 10 TBs of mission-critical data while enabling the university to better support a rapidly expanding VMware virtualization environment.

Grand Valley State is a public, four-year college located in Allendale, Michigan. Situated near Grand Rapids, the university supports more than 24,000 students along with a faculty and support staff of almost 2,000 people. The Princeton Review named GVSU one of the best universities in the Midwest in 2009 and its Seidman College of Business is known as one of the country's top business schools.

An IT team of 40 ensures that students and faculty have ubiquitous network access and the latest tools to enrich the educational process, including SunGard's Banner Unified Digital Campus administrative software. The technology staff also oversees 250 Microsoft Windows file servers, nearly 100 VMware virtual servers and 10 TBs of vital data. A constant influx of data along with a steady migration to server virtualization strained the university's tape-based backup infrastructure, prompting Grand Valley to explore the addition of a cost-effective yet powerful disk-based appliance to bolster data protection.

In seeking reliable, scalable backup and recovery products to support its rapidly expanding environment, Grand Valley turned to trusted reseller partner, Mercury Storage, a Southfield, Michigan-based provider of best-of-breed data storage and security solutions. After evaluating products from several leading manufacturers, the university selected a suite of end-to-end data protection solutions from Overland Storage, including its high-capacity ULTAMUS RAID 1200 storage arrays, top-of-the-line REO 9100c disk-based backup appliances with hardware compression and enterprise-class NEO 8000 tape libraries. Together, this complementary blend of products has enabled Grand Valley State to accelerate backups and restores, extend long-term data retention and achieve heightened levels of disaster recovery and business continuity.
