Fibre Channel is used for high-end storage environments that require a higher cable distance and a high number of connected clients and devices. See options with Open-E software below.
Fibre Channel (FC) uses a high-speed network technology for data storage that has become a popular type of connection for high performance SAN enterprise storage to guarantee excellent throughput and low latency. It is specifically suited for creating SAN topologies for virtualization e.g. ESXi, data centers or other platforms that tackle huge amounts of data.
Clouds are becoming more and more popular as all data and applications can be easily accessed, stored and maintained from a location that can be approached via the Internet, anytime and from any place in the world and from various devices. The ZFS- and Linux-based Open-E JovianDSS is the perfect backend software for a Cloud, no matter if you are an Enterprise, SMB, or SOHO user, or if you want to use it with Public or Private Cloud.
The On- and Off-site Data Protection in Open-E JovianDSS Off-site Data Protection effectively prevents data loss and helps you to achieve maximum data security, especially in High Availability Cluster Setups. Automatic snapshots and asynchronous replication ensure consistent backup that keeps your data safe from theft, ransomware attacks or other disastrous events – with instant access and easy roll-back to previous versions in case of data loss.
Generally speaking, Hyper-converged Storage is the combination of computing, networking and storage in one unified hardware platform. Using commodity HDDs and solid state drives, the Software-defined Infrastructure automatically takes care of the storage and virtualization. The hardware platform is normally based on cheap x86 hardware which can be easily and cost-effectively scaled to growing requirements for performance and storage space.
If you are looking for a solution to back up your data in an off-site location, look no further. With Open-E JovianDSS you can keep your business-critical data safe. As data is one of the most valuable cornerstones of modern businesses, and every company facing a 35% risk of bankruptcy if they don't have a Disaster Recovery plan, you shouldn’t go without one.
