Open-E JovianDSS

Open-E JovianDSS - General information

 

Open-E JovianDSS is a ZFS- and Linux-based Data Storage Software designed especially for enterprise-sized Software Defined Storage environments. With its unique features, the product ensures highest data reliability and integrity – for optimal data storage, protection and recovery. It addresses the needs of enterprise users seeking a unified NAS and SAN solution with thin provisioning, compression and deduplication.

Store your data

Open-E JovianDSS uses shared storage to provide unlimited options to architect HA storage environments. It is the answer to almost any storage requirement, either as a single node, a virtualized HA setup or a Big Data cluster environment. Benefit from a full-service, Software Defined Storage package which you can customize according to your needs.

Protect your data

Off-site Data Protection is a new feature of Open-E JovianDSS that provides a strategy for Backup, Archiving and Disaster Recovery by enabling asynchronous replication to local sites or co-locations. This way, servers with crucial data can be easily and instantly restored in case of an unexpected disaster. The functionality now allows to create consistent snapshots and to asynchronously replicate snapshot deltas to local or remote destinations. Additionally, replication tasks can be scheduled according to the specific user requirements for secure archiving. Encryption enhances security even further while buffered data replication significantly increases the efficiency of storage environments with Open-E JovianDSS. The functionality can be managed via the Command Line Interface (CLI) in Open-E JovianDSS. The software now also includes VMware vSphere Storage APIs - Array Integration (VAAI) for iSCSI data acceleration.

Recover your data

Off-site Data Protection effectively prevents data loss and minimizes the recovery time with high-speed Disaster Recovery, lowering the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) in every backup strategy. It allows setting up an application-consistent backup with a retention interval as a Disaster Recovery plan for virtual environments based on VMware. The software does not require the installation of any backup agent. This way, servers with crucial data can be easily and instantly restored in case of an unexpected disaster.

Features & benefits

Open-E JovianDSS utilizes all features provided by the ZFS technology to the fullest. Its functionalities ensure a streamlined management with pools instead of single volumes, as well as consistent data protection and integrity.

Open-E JovianDSS key features

ZFS File System

128-bit ZFS file system - The most scalable and flexible 128-bit file system.

Unlimited file size - Most legacy solutions limit the file sizes, in ZFS there is no reachable limit.

Unlimited scalability - Easy and intuitive storage extensions enable unlimited storage capacity.

Unlimited Compatibility - The Linux architecture provides Open-E JovianDSS with much better compatibility than competing products based on other operating systems.

Warranted data integrity - Self-healing check-sums, atomic writes and transactional copy-on-write I/O operations eliminate silent data corruption and ‘write-holes’.

Data Management

Data Migration Tool - to easily transfer from Open-E DSS V7 and other storage software.

Disk Multipathing support - for higher fault tolerance, Data Integrity and performance.

Software RAID support - for bootable mediums for improved High Availability and security.

System management via RESTful API - for more flexibility.

VMware Auto Storage Rescan - for an automatic scan after planned or unplanned reboots.

maxView Storage Manager - for a simplified monitoring, an easy maintenance process, and configuration of storage controllers in systems built on Microsemi Adaptec HBA or RAID adapters.

Support for SMB/CIFS protocol (SMB ver. 3.02) - Protocol for Windows environments which includes fully compatible Access Control Lists (ACL) and ADS (Active Directory Service) authentication. Enables direct access to previous file versions with snapshots and is compatible with the Open-E JovianDSS failover feature.

Off-site Data Protection - Enables asynchronous replication to local sites or co-locations with consistent snapshots, secure archiving, encryption and buffering.

High Availability Load-balanced Cluster for SMB, NFS and iSCSI - Provides highest data security with failover functionality.

HA cluster management software - Enables quick and easy management of all cluster functionalities.

Independent VIP (Virtual IP Addresses) feature - Guarantees no downtime during maintenance.

Open-E JovianDSS WebGUI - Open-E is a specialist at creating intuitive and practical WebGUIs for ease-of-use and saving of time.

Native compression & data deduplication - Compression and inline data deduplication drastically reduce physical disk usage.

Disk redundancy - Mirrors and RAID arrays with up to 3 parity disks ensure data safety and uptime.

Tiered cache - RAM and SSD cache tier hot data between each other to increase performance.

Hybrid storage pools - Utilize the I/O performance of SSDs and high capacity of HDDs in a single system.

Unlimited snapshots & clones - In most legacy solutions, the limit for snapshots is set to 255. Open-E JovianDSS allows unlimited snapshots and auto-snapshots that can be remotely activated via CLI and enable easy cloning, versioning and backup.

Storage & service reports - Generate automatic and periodic reports to manage the performance of the system and integrate it into SNMP based management solutions.

Thin provisioning - Virtually simulates a bigger volume than is physically available, and allows growing it on the fly without the need to re-format the file-system.

General

Storage operating system - Includes latest stable packages for higher storage security.

Open-E JovianDSS OS - built on Linux and ZFS on Linux which offers superior stability and performance.

1 year of support - included with each new product license.

Easy-to-use WebGUI - for quick and simple storage management and administration.
