Supporting Quotes

  • Dean Sarris, Co-Founder of RDT Solutions:
    • "Overland continually looks for ways to help its channel partners drive business success. This well-timed promotion should ease budget constraints as we head into the final quarter of the year. Many of our end-user customers have been waiting to upgrade products because of the economic downturn and this incentive from Overland should convince them the time now is right to 'trade up' and get more for their money."
  • Zach Murez, senior sales representative of Peripheral Products, Inc. (PPI)
    • We've already taken advantage of Overland's 'trade-up' program to solve serious backup problems for one of our customers. By leveraging this latest promotion, we enabled them to migrate to a world-class NEO E-SERIES tape library and cut their backup time in half while providing 20 times greater capacity to protect all of their data, including mission-critical databases stored on their existing Overland Snap Server NAS platform."
  • Jillian Mansolf, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Overland:
    • "One of our overarching goals is to lower sales and marketing barriers for Overland's channel partners through creative lead-generation programs.
