Overland Storage Introduces New Scale-Out NAS Platform With More Features, More 
Capacity and More Intelligence 
Now With Unified Block and File Access and a New Platform That Is 50%
More Space Efficient 
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/12/13 --  Overland Storage
(NASDAQ: OVRL), the trusted leader in data management and data
protection has launched their latest scale-out NAS platform, the
SnapScale X4. The SnapScale X4 provides a high-density solution to
more efficiently manage growing amounts of unstructured data. The new
clustered NAS offering now unifies NAS and iSCSI storage volumes
under one global namespace helping enterprises strike the balance
between storage capacity and return on investment, while still
maintaining the ability to expand. 
The SnapScale X4 will allow businesses to take full advantage of
iSCSI block-level access for hosted databases, virtualization and
other applications that can leverage block access over
well-understood IP networks. All SnapScale platforms, which are
VMware and Microsoft certified, maximize performance and provide
greater redundancy, making it ready to meet the unique and very
complex demands of companies with unpredictable data growth. This
unified architecture is perfect for organizations that require a
highly available primary storage solution that consolidates
file-based and block-based access into a single, scalable storage
architecture providing maximum uptime.  
With up to 36 drives in one node and the ability to house 1.4
Petabytes of capacity in a standard 42U server rack, the SnapScale X4
clustered NAS solution is designed to help companies maximize
valuable rack space. The clustered architecture intelligently deploys
file-level data striping between drives, and uses dynamic Data
Balancing, which ensures that when a cluster is expanded, files are
simply rebalanced to optimize all resources within the cluster. This
results in increased performance and maximized availability as the
cluster scales. 
Joe Disher, Director of Product Marketing for Disk Based Products,
Overland Storage explained: "By supporting more drives within each
SnapScale node than ever before, we are able to help companies manage
the rapid growth and management of unstructured data which has become
a real issue for IT administrators. While density is key to
maximizing rack space efficiencies, businesses are increasingly
migrating to a virtualized infrastructure and the SnapScale X4 helps
our customers support these efforts, as well as providing them with
all of the existing benefits they have come to expect from
As well as these latest features, SnapScale X4 continues to offer the
benefits that have become synonymous with the SnapScale brand. Built
on RAINcloud(TM) OS and using Rapid Rebuild technology, SnapScale
provides 99.999% uptime and a no-single-point-of-failure architecture
along with enterprise-class features such as redundancy, snapshots,
automatic failover, replication and flexible provisioning.  
With the ability to easily add hundreds of petabytes of capacity,
SnapScale X4 can scale to support the largest of capacity needs,
allowing businesses to grow their storage infrastructure
non-disruptively. Simple to deploy, manage and scale -- a SnapScale
X4 cluster can be configured in less than 10 minutes with no added
management complexities as the storage infrastructure grows. 
Terri McClure, Sr. Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group commented:
"Whether a company requires a resilient archiving facility for
compliance reasons, disk-to-disk backup facilities for business
continuity, or an economical, high capacity multi-site replication
strategy, enterprises are juggling many different data demands at the
moment, and they often do it with many different storage arrays.
SnapScale X4 aims to meet these challenges with a simple, effective,
and scalable solution. This will enable companies to focus on their
core business goals without worrying about unnecessary challenges due
to explosive storage demands."
