December 13, 2011

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 13, 2011-- Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), the trusted global provider of effortless data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today announced that one of its UK customers, the University of Sheffield, has won ‘Storage Project of the Year’ at the Storage Virtualisation Cloud (SVC) 2011 Awards.

The University of Sheffield won the award for implementing two Overland SnapServers and four SnapServer Expansion units to manage and protect 104TB of research data created by its Genetic Research department. Key benefits of the Overland solution include the ability to store, manage, protect, replicate and easily manage the research data, all in one location.

The SVC awards, which were announced at a gala evening event in London on the 7th December, reward the products, projects and services as well as honour companies and teams operating in the cloud, virtualisation and storage fields. Organised by Angel Publishing, they recognise the achievements of end-users, channel partners and vendors.

Andy Walsky, VP of EMEA Sales, Overland Storage, said: “We’re delighted that Sheffield has received this award. The implementation of the SnapServers has brought simple, enterprise class storage capabilities to the university, which faced growing storage needs with limited resources. The university is also using Overland to provide an effective disaster recovery system. Utilizing the Snap Enterprise Data Replicator, with the secondary remote SnapServer Rackmount unit, creates an automated replication solution for all data stored on the primary device on a daily basis. This ensures that critical data will be recoverable in the event of a disaster.”

The SnapServer Rackmount Solution is built on the award-winning GuardianOS™ platform that is purpose-built to provide business-grade reliability with enterprise-class features. This flexible, cost effective platform allows you to scale seamlessly as your capacity, performance and number of SnapServers grow.
