Open-E JovianDSS Advanced Metro HA Cluster
Advanced Metro HA Cluster - Benefits
• 1Gbps, 10Gbps, 40Gbps, 100Gbps Ethernet support for maximum speed
• Perfect for both rack (from 12” / 30cm) and metro (up to 50 miles / 80km) clusters
• Allows using less expensive SATA drives
• Easy to configure and manage
• Compared to SAS or FibreChannel, JBODs are not required for Ethernet clusters
• Optional use of RAID controllers
Advanced Metro High Availability Cluster for iSCSI, FC and NFS, SMB/CIFS
Open-E JovianDSS includes failover functionality for iSCSI, FC and NFS, SMB (CIFS), enabling you to set up High Availability Load-Balanced Storage Clusters that ensure reliability and redundancy through failover in case of a server crash. By using the Open-E JovianDSS Advanced Metro High Availability Cluster Feature Pack, you can create High Availability for two server nodes with storage mirror over Ethernet using a storage at each location (Dual Storage). Since the connection of cluster communication and data mirroring between nodes works over Ethernet, the nodes might be located far from each other as a (stretched) metro storage cluster. It can be 50 miles (80 km) in case of point to point fibre optic connection, or even more when using an additional switch between nodes - provided that network latency will not exceed 5 ms. The Feature Pack also supports configurations of the Open-E JovianDSS Standard HA Cluster Feature Pack.
Advanced HA cluster management
With the HA cluster management software functionalities you can quickly access all features related to your cluster setup. Whether for initial configuration or re-configuration after a failover – everything is in one place and guarantees ease of use for the storage administrator.
