Exponential data growth, shrinking backup windows,unreliable backups and the need for fast data recovery combined with new government regulations make data protection a challenge for any IT professional. The Overland REO 4000 and 9000 Disk-Based Backup and Recovery Appliances solve these challenges by providing fast, reliable data backup and recovery while reducing operating costs. Easily configured as a virtual tape library, standalone virtual tape drives, and/or disk volumes (LUNs), the REO can be easily deployed and modified to adapt to changing dat protection requirements.
Unlike tape solutions and other disk-based backup systems, only the REO SERIES includes REO Protection OS software, which embeds data protection intelligence and enables future software enhancements via software PACs. It also provides a core set of volume and device virtualization, management, and connectivity features found only in REO SERIES appliances. When configured as virtual tape, backup data is written sequentially and in large blocks, which results in greater backup performance. In addition, REO SERIES virtual tape appliances are not susceptible to disk fragmentation, viruses, manual volume management, hackers, ongoing tuning, or file system overhead - all are common problems found with general purpose disk-based backup systems.
And only REO SERIES includes patent-pending Dynamic Virtual Tape (DVT) technology, which ensures that no storage capacity is wasted while eliminating the manual effort and guesswork of sizing, configuring, provisioning, and deleting virtual tape cartridges. With DVT, users can create virtual tape cartridges that automatically expand or shrink to match the exact capacity requirements of the backup operation.
REO 4000 and 9000 appliances are compatible with all popular open systems and Windows-based backup software, physical tape drives and libraries and easily connect to existing Ethernet (iSCSI) and Fibre Channel networks for seamless integration without changes to existing backup processes. An intuitive and robust browser-based graphical user interface makes REO easy to configure and manage. Users can proactively monitor REO appliances and receive e-mail alerts for instant notification of status changes.
