SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2012) - Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), the trusted global provider of effortless data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today announced that the Fertility Centers of Illinois, one of the nation's largest fertility treatment centers, selected the Overland Storage SnapSAN solution to provide centralized storage and backup for 300 users located in 12 medical offices across Illinois. With the SnapSAN solution, the Fertility Centers are able to automatically back up data to an offsite disaster recovery location while benefitting from increased data access speeds and reduced storage costs.

"In the past few years all of our offices have eliminated paper medical charts, making us 100 percent paperless. With records being accessed electronically, our storage requirements have dramatically increased," said Chris Diamond, information systems manager, Fertility Centers of Illinois. "We chose the SnapSAN solution from Overland Storage because it allows us to centrally store and manage all of our data on one device. In addition, we utilize the built-in replication to synchronize data to our offsite location for redundancy and disaster recovery."
