Overland-Tandberg Receives New Purchase Order for Nearly $1Million

Global hotel chain utilizes RDX data protection and disaster recovery technology solution for reservation bookings, video surveillance backup and disaster recovery

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overland-Tandberg™, a brand of Sphere 3D Corp. (NASDAQ:ANY) and a leading provider of data management, backup and storage solutions announced today that they were recently awarded a just under $1 million order from an existing global hotel chain customer. Shipments against this order started in Q1 2018 and are expected to complete in Q2 2018.

Since 2013, the RDX® technology has been the corporate mandated backup and archive solution for every site of this prestigious and worldwide hotel chain. Each of their thousands of locations has multiple RDX QuikStor® drives deployed that maintain daily backup of their video surveillance and reservations activity to an RDX Media cartridge. At day’s end, that RDX media cartridge is then taken to a centralized offsite facility for archiving and disaster recovery, and then replaced with a new cartridge at the hotel site for the next day, thus seamlessly providing 24-7 data backup protection.

“We are committed to our strategy of vertical market penetration in industries such as hospitality, where our data protection and archive solutions provide the best performance, data protection and lowest total cost of ownership,” said Tina Brown, VP Corporate Marketing and Customer Service, Overland-Tandberg. “With our RDX technology, we offer a field-proven footprint in hospitality backup and archive, that gives our clients the comfort and consistency needed to run their operations effectively by knowing their data is secure through their complete value chain. We are excited about extending our hospitality focused go to market programs to our resellers and massive install base to also enjoy the great benefits from this solution.”

In addition to the RDX solutions, the Overland-Tandberg portfolio also includes other data protection offerings like Neo Agility LTFS that can bring additional value add to these data protection and archive use cases by providing compellingly simple to use functionality including “disk like” drag and drop performance and meta-data analysis that enables end-users to further streamline their workflow processes.
