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.
