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.
Any interruption in access to key information can result in outrageous costs, proving the importance of high availability of company resources. Storage virtualization provides increased performance and security of information exchange and storage.
The reason a customer, searching for suitable cloud service, choose one hosting company over another mostly depends on the specific functionality and level of security they offer for a specific (read: low) price. However, finding a proven performance solution for cloud that meets all client’s expectations is not an easy task.
Failover is an excellent way to implement High Availability. It is a work mode that uses two Open-E Data Storage Software V6 servers (primary and secondary). The secondary server, which has a full up-to-date copy of the data, takes over as the file server in the event of a primary server failure.
If you want to connect to an iSCSI Target Volume over a LAN from a Microsoft Windows system, perform the following steps:1) Hardware configuration 2) Configure the DSS V6 3) Configure iSCSI Target Properties 4) Initialize the disk from iSCSI target 4) Accessing to the disk.
High availability is crucial to many applications. Despite using high-quality hardware and superior connection, any node (network, server, storage equipment, etc) is still subject to crashes due to power shortages, communication and equipment faults, fire incidents, maintenance problems or a human factor. These crashes result in a loss of all active connections and data transactions, as well as service termination. The main goal of Failover is to protect company server against such cases.
