Overland Storage (News - Alert), a provider of unified data management and data protection solutions, announced the availability of its GuardianOS 7.6 release software in a new desktop form factor NAS (network-attached storage) platform.
GuardianOS 7.6 will power the SnapServer XSD 40, the newest addition to Overland's SnapServer Series of NAS servers, along with SnapServer Manager. This will help customers with small or remote offices easily manage and protect their data from a central console.
"Built on the GuardianOS 7.6 operating system, we are delivering enterprise-grade performance and versatility through a compact desktop NAS form factor that will consistently outperform consumer-grade NAS devices," Nilesh Patel, vice president of product management and product marketing for Overland Storage said in a statement.
"With the assurance of Overland's global enterprise-class service and support infrastructure, users in small businesses and distributed enterprises worldwide can confidently and easily deploy the SnapServer XSD 40 across their enterprise to protect and share local files, and replicate remotely for disaster recovery and collaboration," added Patel.
The newly launched GuardianOS 7.6 software is said to have developed keeping data protection and disaster recovery as the key focus. It can deliver unlimited volumes with DynamicRAID, RDX removable disk storage backup support, integrates well with enterprise security and has enhanced file sharing. The SnapServer XSD 40, powered by Overland Storage's new GuardianOS 7.6 software, is a simple and efficient NAS and iSCSI SAN storage. Data stored on the SnapServer XSD 40 can be accessed from anywhere and can easily support collaboration across global or remote offices. Moreover the built-in print server functionality in GuardianOS 7.6 is highlighted to further reduce IT software costs.
Additionally, the platform comes with removable drive backup capability through Integrated RDX Backup which gives administrators another way to share and protect data by copying files directly from the SnapServer XSD 40 to removable, high performance RDX disk media attached via USB3.0
