Effortless data meets private cloud

24 Oct 2014

Westcon Imagine 2014 - 'Effortless data' is the mantra for Overland Storage, and the company is now driving solutions that can be used in the cloud.

Lee-Ann Tan, Regional Sales Director, APCA and Middle East at Overland Storage, says the company is seeing growth opportunities in the cloud market.

“We are also driving aggressively solutions that can be used with the cloud.”

Overland has packaged its private cloud solution into it’s SnapServer platforms and will also be introducing its Hyper-converged VDI appliance which will address the needs of VDI.

“One of the important features in our NAS and Scale-Out NAS offering is our capability to deliver a private cloud storage solution,”Tan says.

“We are putting your data into your data centre and leveraging the cloud as a transport layer with a AES 128-bit encryption toensure security.

“Our private cloud application is essentially free, bundled with our storage, and it allows unlimited usage,” he adds.

Once deployed, the application appears as a icon on the desktop, from where it can be launched and the storage used like a regular drive.

“This application is available on all popular platforms like Windows, iOS, Kindle, Blackberry, Linus and Android.

“Now, companies can more effectively distribute material, get co-workers to collaborate more effectively and safely, without allowing sensitive company data to sit in the public cloud.”
