SnapServer DX Series With SSD Options Now Available From Overland Storage

August 6, 2012

Aug 06, 2012 (Marketwire via COMTEX) --Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL), the trusted global provider of effortless data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today announced that solid state disks (SSDs) are supported in the SnapServer DX2, a unified NAS and iSCSI SAN storage server. With the option of utilizing SSD drives, IT managers can now customize the SnapServer DX2 to increase levels of performance when required in high IOP environments, such as virtualization, databases, file serving, and virtual desktop infrastructures. The SnapServer DX2 supports mixing and matching SSD, SAS and SATA hard drives within a single chassis to optimize performance requirements of multiple applications simultaneously, while offering storage consolidation and maximum data protection.

With the new SSD options, the SnapServer DX2 empowers companies to grow their storage as business needs expand and easily support escalating performance requirements. SSDs offer the following benefits:

  • Speed: SSDs provide increased IOPs and a much lower latency than tradition spinning disk media.
  • Reliability: SSDs provide a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of over two million hours and are more resistant to shock and vibration, making them less likely to fail.
  • Durability: SSDs are reliable and ideal for business critical applications since there are no moving parts.
  • Efficiency: SSDs require less power and run at a lower temperature than traditional drives, both of which provide significant cost savings.

Built upon the award-winning Guardian Operating System, the SnapServer DX2 supports traditional or DynamicRAID for seamless storage expansion as capacity requirements change over time. Expandable to 288TB and featuring an array of integrated enterprise-class features including snapshots, replication and remote management, SnapServer DX2 enables storage environments to effortlessly scale without downtime allowing any size business to run its storage like an enterprise at one-tenth the cost.

"The SnapServer DX Series combined with SSDs is a winning combination that enables our customers to customize their solutions to meet the high performance requirements for business critical applications and virtual environments," said Jeremy Zuber, product marketing manager, Overland Storage. "With the SnapServer DX2, companies with increasing data demands now have an ideal solution that easily grows with their business while providing enterprise features and functionality at a price they can afford."
