San Diego, US: Overland Storage recently announced that Historic Map Works has deployed Overland Storage SnapServer 650 and 520 solutions to back up and protect over 1.2 million individual images of maps and geographical data.
“We have created a central location that enables people to explore and find information about their ancestors, geographical shifts and changes over time. To create our database, we have to scan and store thousands of maps, atlases and centuries of cartographic information. We need a storage solution that is expandable, reliable and easy to use. The SnapServer NAS solutions from Overland have continued to perform beyond our expectations and have helped us grow our database and protect valuable historical information,” said Charles Carpenter, national accounts manager at Historic Map Works.
High technology scans and digital cataloguing enable Historic Map Works to access and continuously archive, document and preserve historical information from across the globe. Using Overland’s SnapServer, Historic Map Works is able to back up and protect these digital reproductions of maps and geographical data.
