Data management and protection innovator Overland Storage has a new clustered NAS solution for SMBs. The solution, SnapScale, is built on the company’s new RAINcloud OS technology.

“SnapScale eliminates independent storage silos and unifies storage volumes under one global namespace,” state Overland Storage in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB.

Scalable to 512 Petabytes, SnapScale is designed provide maximum uptime and “no-single-point-of-failure” architecture along with such features as redundancy, snapshots, automatic failover, replication, and flexible provisioning. It also boasts the ability to add hundreds of petabytes of capacity and scale performance linearly.

“Companies today are driven by data more than ever before,” says Jillian Mansolf, Overland Storage’s senior vice president of global sales and marketing. “With over 300,000 SnapServers deployed globally, we have listened to our customers and designed SnapScale to push the limits of the scale-out NAS solutions available in this class while still offering the simplicity, reliability and enterprise class features that people expect from SnapServer solutions.”

Product Features

RAINcloud OS combines three layers of traditional storage architectures: filesystem, volume manager, and data protection. In a single unified software layer, this creates an intelligent Global Namespace that spans all nodes within a cluster.

RAINcloud OS gives SnapScale the ability to set-up clusters in under ten minutes and features a “manage-anywhere” browser-based interface that dramatically simplifies storage set-up, configuration, and maintenance.

SnapScale enables administrators to scale-up capacity by adding drives or scale-out capacity by adding nodes. Additional data protection can be obtained by replicating data between clusters with Snap Enterprise Data Replicator, which is included.

The Overland Storage SnapScale Clustered NAS is available immediately from a worldwide network of value added resellers and system integrators.
