Ensure continuous availability of all data and keep your business running. Open-E software provides solutions that allow your company to maintain operations in spite of critical situations or disasters.
iSCSI (Internet Small Computer System Interface) is a type of protocol providing a proficient usage of disk space together with data safety and increased performance. A centralized storage management that uses iSCSI and RAID technologies enables a comfortable administration and reduced downtime in case of a hard drive failure. It enables building SAN (Storage Area Network) storage systems using SCSI disk arrays and Ethernet (TCP / IP). Its main advantage is the ability to create an iSCSI SAN with an extensive use of typical networking elements which facilitates system building and reduces its costs.
High Availability through Failover is crucial for many companies. Despite using high-quality hardware and superior connections, still any server can crash, leading to data loss. Providing High Availability can be tricky, but fortunately Open-E DSS V7 is able to work with a second node. It keeps data redundant and when aware of the original node’s failure, the redundant node continues serving clients; effectively replacing the missing node. This process is commonly known as Failover.
Having a highly available storage is one thing, but what about its overall performance? Learn how you can achieve both, using Open-E DSS V7 with iSCSI Active-Active Feature Pack.
Open-E Data Storage Software V7 is being increasingly used as the go-to software for cloud storage. This is one of the many purposes our software can be used for. Cloud storage is now very popular as an alternative to having an additional backup service. What are the benefits of using cloud storage?
The solution of how to boot an operating system from a remote iSCSI disk. This configuration, along with the Automatic iSCSI Failover, allows you to enjoy high availability of resources and better data loss prevention.
