    • "Overland continually looks for ways to help its channel partners drive business success. This well-timed promotion should ease budget constraints as we head into the final quarter of the year. Many of our end-user customers have been waiting to upgrade products because of the economic downturn and this incentive from Overland should convince them the time now is right to 'trade up' and get more for their money."

    • We've already taken advantage of Overland's 'trade-up' program to solve serious backup problems for one of our customers.
