SAN DIEGO -- Overland Storage, Inc.(NASDAQ:OVRL) today announced the REO(TM) 4500, the latest addition to its next-generation REO SERIES(R) of versatile, disk-based backup, recovery and virtual tape library (VTL) appliances. The REO 4500 is engineered for improved performance and reliability with a new hardware platform, increased speed, greater capacity as well as advanced VTL functionality. The REO 4500 extends the capabilities of its predecessor, the REO 4000, with enhanced functionality and expandability while complementing Overland's other REO models, including the entry-level REO 1500 and top-of-the-line REO 9100. To date, Overland has deployed more than 5,000 REO appliances, representing more than 25 petabytes of vital data.

With its REO SERIES, Overland offers "drop in" disk-to-disk (D2D) VTL appliances that lower the costs and administrative overhead often associated with software-based VTLs. The new REO 4500 is a simple, economical product that helps solve increasingly complex backup challenges while facilitating near-instantaneous data recovery. The next-generation product also supports industry-leading capabilities and functionality, including:

  • State-of-the-art SAS RAID controller;

  • Dual 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel and iSCSI host connectivity;

  • Up to 27 TBs of raw data capacity;

  • User-definable VTL with up to six library partitions, up to 32 virtual tape drives and up to 512 virtual cartridges;

  • RAID 5 protection;

  • Dual hot-swap power supplies; and

  • Secure web-based management for simplified set-up and proactive monitoring.

"The REO 4500 rounds out Overland's next-generation REO line-up with fast, reliable, 'set it and forget it' operation, intuitive management and on-demand expandability," says Michael Kerman, vice president of worldwide marketing and chief strategy officer for Overland Storage. "Our mid-range REO offering blends price and performance to give SMBs a D2D VTL appliance that can grow right along with them to keep pace with rapidly rising data protection needs."
