Overland Looks Toward Services, Creates Solutions Group

San Diego-based Overland Storage is looking beyond hardware, and into services, saying Thursday that it has created a new Solution Engineering Group. The firm said that the new group will focus on development and delivery of "complete" data protection offerings, pulled from the firm's tape, disk, NAS, SAN, and third party products. Overland explained that the new organization will be led by Dan Davies, who has been appointed as Vice President of solutions engineering.
