Open-E JovianDSS Business Continuity
& Disaster Recovery Solutions

Build your business on the basis of a foolproof data storage environment ready to keep you up and running under 
any circumstances.

All You Need to Build Your Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Plans for the IT Infrastructure

Continuous availability of all data keeps the business going and allows you to maintain all operations even should a critical situation or disaster happen. This can be achieved by combining High Availability Clusters with Open-E JovianDSS On- & Off-Site Data Protection for maximum security. Both the features are built into Open-E JovianDSS’ core functionality suite and don’t cost anything extra.

Open-E JovianDSS Business Continuity solutions help you to be prepared for every disruption that could occur so that you can operate uninterrupted or with the lowest possible downtime during scheduled events such as maintenance tasks.

Open‑E JovianDSS Data Self-Healing and Scrubbing Features

Open-E JDSS Data Self Healing and Scrubbing Features scheme

One of the fundamental Business Continuity challenges is to sustain your data integrity and availability, while also protecting it against things like silent data corruption that can occur on every physical drive. With ZFS-based data-healing functionality, you can easily prevent silent data corruption without human intervention. The system will detect and fix the damage itself during regular read operations. You can also run the Scrub operation manually, which will scan your data storage for you and fix any corrupted data thus ensuring that less frequently used data isn’t lost.

Open‑E JovianDSS High Availability Clusters

High Availability architecture provides you with data storage that has the highest possible performance, reliability, availability, redundancy, and efficiency. By ensuring that these standards are as high as possible,  downtime periods are minimized and single points of failure are eliminated. High Availability Clusters ensure business continuity by providing uninterrupted access to data during hardware failures, planned maintenance tasks, and system updates.

Open-E JovianDSS offers dozens of options in regards to setting up High Availability environments with iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC) and NFS, SMB (CIFS) client protocols. These options allow you to set up High Availability Load-Balanced Storage Clusters that ensure reliability and redundancy through failover in case of a server crash.

Open‑E JovianDSS Failover Options

Should one of the data storage nodes fail, or you just plan to reboot the system, the failover function will redirect the data flow from the unavailable server to the available one. 

Active-Passive Failover Data Storage Setup

Open-E JovianDSS Active-Passive Failover Data Storage Setup

The Active-Passive setup allows you to have all your active volumes on one server (the primary node) while the other server has all the passive copies and can take over the tasks in case of an emergency (the passive node).


Active-Active Failover Data Storage Setup

Open-E JovianDSS Active-Active Failover Data Storage Setup

A load-balanced Active-Active Failover doesn’t have a primary or secondary node. It adds extra performance by enabling the user to decide which volumes are active on which node. The failover process is the same, but the servers are able to utilize their full network performance and eliminate the unnecessary cost of idle hardware.

High Availability Architecture Examples

Open-E JovianDSS helps you build your storage environment flexibly and according to your individual business’ needs. Whether you need a system based on two nodes, multiple JBODs over SAS/FC, or even with two servers and a common set of direct-attached hard drives within one server enclosure, Open-E JovianDSS can offer you a plethora of options to architect your storage environment.

Open‑E JovianDSS On- & Off-Site Data Protection for Disaster Recovery

Open-E JovianDSS On- & Off-Site Data Protection is your insurance policy in the event of unexpected, data-affecting situations.  As such, it should be an obligatory part of your Disaster Recovery Plan, along with the resources and procedures to instantly restore the data. It protects your data by constantly backing it up and storing copies both locally and remotely, which, in turn, allows you to restore the data to a previously saved point-in-time in case of any unexpected events.

On- & Off-Site Data Protection

With Open-E JovianDSS you have all the required tools in one place to avoid data loss caused by:

  • hardware failures

  • fire 

  • flood 

  • ransomware attacks 

  • theft

  • power shortages 

  • and more


Open‑E JovianDSS Disaster Recovery Features

Open-E JovianDSS On- & Off-Site Data Protection gives you the following possibilities of disaster recovery should data loss occur:

Instant Data Restoration from the Same Server

Crucial or "hot" data can be restored instantly from one of the multiple snapshots through the Snapshot Rollback function. Users can also access the snapshot data and manually restore any and all selected files. This can be helpful should a ransomware attack occur since snapshots are read-only files, thus they can be used to restore the data even if the rest of the data on the server is encrypted.

Restoring Data from a Local Backup Server

With a local backup server, data is available in the same location and can be recovered with a minimum amount of downtime by temporarily using a backup server as the data server while the primary server is being restored. This approach protects you against data loss due to hardware failure.

Restoring Data from Off-Site Locations

It is possible to instantly switch to the backup server and use it temporarily as a primary location (depending on the system structure) while doing the restore in the background. Restoring data from an off-site server may be more time-consuming, depending on the amount of data that needs to be recovered, as well as the connection throughput. That being said, it’s also one of the only ways to protect data against natural disasters such as floods, fires etc, as well as man-made ones like power shortages or thefts.
