Open-E JovianDSS Comprehensive Backup Solution

Try Open-E JovianDSS built-in, end-to-end data backup features for the ultimate data security.

Prevent Data Loss with Efficient Open-E JovianDSS-based Backups

Open-E JovianDSS backup features are powerful and flexible, as they cover a wide range of possible worst-case scenarios, so you don't have to use any additional third-party tools. Built-in backup solution based on Open-E JovianDSS utilizes advanced ZFS technology to ensure data integrity with snapshots and replication, providing peace of mind through robust disaster recovery options.

Moreover, its intuitive management interface simplifies the configuration and monitoring of backups, streamlining the process to save time and reduce potential human errors.

Backup of Everything

Copies of all kinds of data are consistent, including databases and running virtual machines with all of their applications and data.

Instant Access To and Restore of Previous Data Versions

Old data versions can be accessed and restored quickly, since they are kept in the original form. Users can instantly start using their backed up data. Also, every user has a direct access to "Previous Versions" via SMB on MS Windows clients.

Optional Removal and Rotation of Backup Media

Thanks to Pool Export and Import functionalities, users can safely remove backup media (disks), rotate with other sets, or ship to another location.

Encrypted Transfer

The data stream is sent via SSH for safe transfer via the Internet.

Protection Against Ransomware

Very frequent snapshots with instant access to all data provide a quick way to roll back to the state before a virus attack.

Backup Window Problem Solved

The backup window is reduced to minutes since only data changes are replicated within every interval. Additionally, the backup is offloaded from the client machine to the storage server.

Very Light Backup Engine

Continuous interval-based replication works in the background with insignificant influence on production. There is an option to skip virtual machine snapshots in very heavy-load timeframes in VMware environments.

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

The On- & Off-site Data Protection feature in Open-E JovianDSS Data Storage Software allows you to backup and restore crucial company data in case of an unexpected disaster due to a combination of several technologies:

  • On-Site Backups
  • Off-Site Backups
  • Flexible Retention Plans
  • Snapshots and Clones

With this feature, you can fully experience the flexibility of our data storage solution, which covers a wide range of disaster recovery scenarios without the need to use additional third-party tools.

On-site (Local) Backups

On-site backups are kept at your place of business on the same server with additional internal drives, external drives or on other local Open-E JovianDSS-based servers. Such a kind of backup is the most suitable for data protection when a company encounters ransomware attacks, hardware failure, or other disasters. Due to location, data restoration is usually easier and faster than in the case of an off-site backup. Therefore, it is a perfect solution for hot data, which can be restored with minimized downtime or even instantly by switching to the backup copy.

Off-site (Remote) Backups

Off-site backups are backed up to a geographically different location. Such backup secures the data in case of e.g. theft, flood, fire, power outages, etc. In case of such disasters, the data can be restored to a new primary location, or, in some solutions, the backup can take the primary server's role, and the data can be accessed instantly. The data transfer is secured by encryption. This kind of backup is also suitable for archiving purposes. It is also possible to set up several backup locations.

Open-E JovianDSS Retention Plans

Using the retention plans, you can control snapshots' automatic creation and deletion, both on the source and destination side of things. These plans of one or multiple rules, defined by an interval and a retention period. The interval sets how often a snapshot should be taken and the retention period - how long each snapshot should be kept.

Open-E JovianDSS Consistent Snapshots

Open-E JovianDSS enables creating an unlimited number of snapshots, i.e., point-in-time copies of data, on the source volumes. Data from a snapshot can be instantly restored via the rollback feature or an additional volume (clone).

With the On- & Off-site Data Protection feature, snapshots are asynchronously replicated to local and/or remote locations according to a retention plan that can be customized specifically to individual requirements. Since snapshots keep only the data that has changed between subsequent snapshots, only the changes are transferred to the destination location as well.
