Publishing house centralizes virtual storage environment with Open-E JovianDSS

For its growing amount of data, Dähne publishing had been using an eight year old virtualized environment based on Open-E DSS V6. It was time to look for a new solution. The project of developing a new storage concept was handed over to Open-E Platinum Partner and storage specialist Rausch Netzwerktechnik who presented a new concept consisting of a centralized virtual environment with 10Gbit RJ45 – this time based on servers of their own brand Sasquatch with the ZFS-based storage software JovianDSS by Open-E.

High availability hypervisor platform for stock photo agency

The world's largest online photo agency Alamy required a resilient storage solution with load-balancing, redundancy against hardware failure, and the ability to install hardware and OS updates without downtime. The company chose Open-E DSS V7 with Active-Active iSCSI Failover to provide high availability iSCSI storage, and set up an environment which also leveraged Hyper-V 2012 clustering to provide a HA hypervisor platform.

Open-E DSS V7 Active/Active iSCSI Failover Setup

quote

The active-active iSCSI replication in Open-E DSS V7 provides load-balancing of storage, redundancy against hardware failure, and the ability to install hardware and OS updates without VM downtime which were the strongest arguments for our decision. Additionally, our Exchange performance issues have completely disappeared. Migrating from ESX to Hyper-V means that both failover clustering and live migration are supported without a large investment in licenses, providing load balancing, redundancy against hardware failure, and the ability to install hardware and OS updates without VM downtime. With MPIO on Open-E DSS V7 and NIC bonding with MPIO on Hyper-V, even the failure of a NIC causes no downtime. An actual hardware failure demonstrated that the project goal of resilience had been achieved.
