REO 4600 with ProtectionOS
Versatile, Disk-Based Backup and Recovery Appliances
Besides its people, a company’s data is one of its most critical assets. Keeping that
data stored, accessible and secure has become complex and expensive as companies
are faced with massive data growth, increasingly stringent regulatory requirements
and distributed environments that can range from across-the-hall to across-the-globe.
Overland Storage® recognizes the need for businesses to do more—with less, and
offers effortless data management and protection solutions. Overland Storage® REO
4600 emulates multiple tape libraries over a Fibre Channel or iSCSI interface and
seamlessly integrates with the existing backup infrastructure to enable cost-efficient
long term retention on disk and more reliable, high-speed recoveries of backup data.

Proven Data Protection
Unlike tape solutions and other disk-based back up systems, only the REO SERIES® includes REO
ProtectionOS™ software, which embeds data protection intelligence. When configured as virtual tape,
backup data is written sequentially and in large blocks, which results in greater backup performance.

Flexible Connectivity
Every REO SERIES system includes our patent-pending Dynamic Virtual Tape™ (DVT) technology, which
ensures that no storage capacity is wasted while eliminating the manual effort and guesswork of sizing,
configuring, provisioning, and deleting virtual tape cartridges. With DVT, users can create virtual tape
cartridges that automatically expand or contract to match the exact capacity requirements of the backup
of virtual tape drives and/or disk
