Grand Valley State University Graduates To First-Class Data Protection With Overland Storage's SAN, Backup Appliance And Tape Solutions
"With Overland's SAN products, back up appliances and tape solutions, I no longer worry about backups or keeping up with spikes in data growth," said David Reed, network engineer for Grand Valley State University. "When our continued growth requires additional solutions, we'll look at Overland first because we've come to trust their products over the years since they've always performed well and we're confident the next one will too."
Grand Valley first took advantage of two NEO 8000 tape libraries for enterprise-class performance and capacity with access to as much as 1.6 petabytes of storage and space for up to 1,000 cartridges and 24 tape drives. Next, the university opted for a pair of high-end REO 9100 disk-based backup appliances to accelerate backups by more than 75 percent while enabling near-instantaneous data recoveries.
The team then added compression cards to their high-end REOs to nearly double the useable virtual tape capacity in order to keep pace with constant data growth. Two ULTAMUS SAN storage solutions complete the data protection picture by offering massive amounts of storage at the best possible price point to accommodate the university's VMware backups.
According to Jillian Mansolf, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for Overland Storage, the company's family of backup appliances, highly available SAN and NAS solutions and tape products scale easily to support demanding requirements. "Our future-proof data protection solutions are flexible and well suited for rapid-growth environments," she explains. " Grand Valley State University is an excellent example of how Overland's product portfolio delivers complementary capabilities for achieving faster backups and restores, more reliable long-term data retention and increased support for server virtualization migrations."About Overland Storage, Inc.
