Overland’s Comprehensive Family of Storage Management Solutions

Overland Data, Inc., the fastest growing provider of enterprise and mid-range storage solutions, and Astrum Software, a leading provider of storage resource management (SRM) software, today announced they are working together to bring a new family of Overland-branded storage management software solutions to market. As part of their technology agreement, Overland will use Astrum technology in the development of its family of storage management solutions, including the Overland Storage Resource Manager and Overland Storage Planner.

“Astrum Software clearly provides the highest quality technology in storage management,” said John Cloyd, vice president and general manager of Overland Data’s storage management business unit. “We are confident that through this partnership we can serve the growing needs for more efficient storage management with an open product, designed for ease of use and delivering an immediate ROI for our customers.”

The first of the Overland-branded storage solutions to be released is the Overland Storage Resource Manager, which enables policy based storage management and allows users to easily detect problems, take corrective action and adjust storage resources in a matter of minutes to realise immediate ROI in any network attached storage (NAS) or direct attached storage environment (DAS). Some of the world’s leading educational and Global 1000 organisations have deployed Astrum’s SRM technology.
