Open-E JovianDSS On- & Off-site Data Protection

The On- & Off-site Data Protection feature is a strategy for Storage, Backup, Disaster Recovery and Archiving (optional) that allows for an instant restore of a company’s crucial data in case of an unexpected disaster.

On- & Off-site Data Protection enables creating consistent snapshots of chosen resources and asynchronous replication to remote (or local) destinations.

The rotational auto-snapshots of a chosen dataset or zvol are stored according to a retention-interval plan for secure and structured data archiving that can be set according to specific user needs.

Key features

  • Backup of everything. All running virtual machines with applications and data, even databases backups, are consistent (in VMware environment).
  • Solved problem of Backup Window. Backup Window is reduced to minutes, only delta of all-data is replicated every interval.
  • Protection against ransomware. Very frequent snapshots with instant access to all data provide a fast roll-back to the state before a virus attack.
  • Instant access / restoration of old images. Old images and data versions can be accessed / restored quickly. Thanks to SMB, all users have direct access to "Previous Versions", with no need for an administrator's help.
  • Instant Disaster Recovery. All data and single virtual machines can be restored within just minutes.
  • Reliable backup of mission critical data. Multiple backup destinations with user defined retention-interval plans for source and destination.
  • Very light backup engine. Continuous interval-based replication working in the background, having only slight influence on production, with an option to skip virtual machine snapshots in very heavy load time frames.
  • Optional removal and rotation of backup media. Thanks to Export/Import service, users can safely remove the backup media (disks) and rotate them with other set, or move to other location.
  • Clustered environments. It is possible to use the On- & Off-site Data Protection functionality in clustered environments with Open-E JovianDSS.
  • Encrypted transport. The data stream is encrypted with SSH and sent via the Internet.
