“Overland SRM’s compatibility with Emulex’s 2 Gb/s family of HBAs provides end users with a cost-effective, scalable and heterogeneous product offering,” said Mike Smith, executive vice president of worldwide marketing for Emulex. “As the world’s leading supplier of HBAs, Emulex will continue to work closely with companies like Overland to ensure the deployment of high performance storage networking solutions.”

Overland SRM lets IT departments know exactly what data resides on the network, what should be saved, what can be moved to tape storage and what can be deleted. It helps to increase network reliability, strategically deploy existing and future assets, and facilitate backup and disaster recovery in heterogeneous environments. Features include automated policy management, instant reporting, comprehensive notification tools, and easy storage and system performance tracking.
