The data had to be easily accessible for all the employees in order to simplify the company’s workload without the need for expanding the IT department with data storage specialists. The main goal of Viasit was to focus on the core business of manufacturing.
To respond to the demand for a flexible, scalable, and affordable solution, Viasit chose EUROstor, a German hardware and storage solutions provider. EUROstor in turn recommended Open-E JovianDSS as the data storage software. All in all, the solution consisted of two pools configured in a Single storage Shared High Availability cluster. The two Open-E JovianDSS nodes were externally connected to the JBOD via Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) protocols. The solution worked on the basis of a 2-way mirror redundancy level, consisting of a total of eight disk groups. Should there be a need for storage extension, the configuration allows a user to add up to 2 more disk groups, or to add an extra JBOD. An additional benefit of the solution was proper Load Balancing, achieved thanks to the Active-Active cluster configuration, which increased both the performance and data availability.

"Thanks to the proper configuration and implementation of the system, as well as the assurance that we will receive assistance in case of any difficulties, we sleep much better now. The software has ensured easy maintenance without unplanned downtimes, with simple accessibility to the data stored. In the event of any configuration issue, we always got very fast and professional support from both EUROstor and Open-E"
