High AvailabilityUse the Open-E JovianDSS High Availability Cluster Feature Pack to set up a NFS or iSCSI shared cluster for highest data security.
Native backup strategy – Open-E JovianDSS Off-site Data ProtectionOpen-E JovianDSS combines several technologies to create the Off-site Data Protection feature – a strategy for Backup, Archiving and Disaster Recovery that allows an instant restore of crucial company data in case of an unexpected disaster. It enables consistent Snapshots for VMware virtual machines and asynchronous replication to local or remote destinations. The rotational Snapshots are stored according to a retention-interval plan for flexible data archiving that can be customized to specific user needs. Additionally, Open-E JovianDSS with Off-site Data Protection does not require any backup agent which makes additional third-party backup solutions obsolete.
Suitable for all High Availability storage setupsOpen-E JovianDSS uses shared storage to architect High Availability storage environments. It includes failover functionality for SMB/CIFS, NFS and iSCSI and is used to set up HA Load-Balanced Storage Clusters that ensure reliability and redundancy by eliminating single points of failure. One set of disks is shared between two compute nodes which doubles performance and throughput to the data. It is the answer to almost any storage requirement, for SAN and NAS installations, enterprise virtualization solutions or Big Data cluster environments
