Overland Rolls Remote Backup Appliance

San Diego-based Overland Storage has rolled out a new, disk-based appliance for remote backup, the firm said this morning. Overland said the new product, its REO Compass, provides automated backup of data between locations, and is targeted at wide-area backup and recovery of remote offices. The new product will be available in December, and is available in both 1U and 2U versions, with either iSCSI or Fibre Channel support.
