SnapSAN S2000
Intelligent iSCSI SAN Optimized for Virtual Server Environments
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.
The SnapSAN™ S2000 is an iSCSI SAN appliance designed for businesses with growing storage needs and limited resources
to manage their end-to-end storage strategies.
The full-featured S2000 offers many standard enterprise capabilities, such as auto-provisioning, mirroring
for high-availability and active-active failover, as well as, replication and snapshots for data protection. The
plug-and-play architecture, combined with the simple management console and Windows-based wizard
driven user interface, greatly simplifies installation and routine maintenance.
The SAN Manager software can monitor and manage multiple S2000 storage systems—locally or
remotely—using a local windows application or via web browser in heterogeneous environments. The GUI
accesses storage event logs and immediately displays any faults. Email Notifications or text events can be
sent to system administrators—or even to a remote management organization.
Included in the S2000 is the auto-provisioning breakthrough capability, allowing the S2000 to proactively
meet growing capacity demands by automatically increasing capacity on the host as needed – without user
involvement. The expansion is non-disruptive and works flawlessly without the need for pre-allocating or
estimation of unknown storage needs.
The S2000 plugin for the VMware vCenter Server application provides deep integration with VMware ESX
platforms, resulting in unrivalled and outstanding support for datacenter virtualization technologies. This
enables Overland customers to stretch their investments even further by realizing unparalleled efficiencies
in server and storage resource utilization.
Business Continuity plans will keep your organization up and running. A key to this success is a featurerich solution that provides both mirroring and replication option. With the SnapSAN S2000 you don’t have
to make the choice between the features you need and the price you can afford. The S2000 also integrates
directly into VMware vCenter Server making it one of the easiest management tools on the market. By
deploying the SnapSAN mirroring and replication features, you’ve taken the first step toward your Business
