Open-E JovianDSS - Running Virtual Machines

Open-E JovianDSS is a ZFS- and Linux-based Data Storage Software designed especially for enterprise-sized Software Defined Storage environments. Combined with VMware vSphere ESXi, it is a cost-effective, flexible and scalable solution for virtualization that offers highest performance and data efficiency.

Open-E JovianDSS based virtualized storage setups with High Availability and/or a sophisticated Hyper-converged Infrastructure offer the best value and quality due to:

Storage and Backup for virtual environments
• Data storage software that includes On- and Off-site Data Protection and the optional High Availability cluster feature
• Can be implemented as a stand-alone data storage server or as Storage Virtual Appliance (SVA)
• Enables consistent backup of Virtual Machines and user data, including databases, and provides advanced schedules and retention plans - lowering RPO (Recovery Point Objective)
• Safe and reliable thanks to advanced data protection mechanisms of underlying ZFS file system

Fast implementation and ease of use
• Can be installed as a storage for ESXi within minutes and gets connected in a few steps only
• Intuitive WebGUI simplifies storage administration
• Professional technical support for the complete storage setup including VMware implementation

• Inexpensive product licenses and technical support options, compared to other storage software (Nexenta, Datacore, Falconstor, ...)
• The licensing system is based on the capacity of each storage environment, and designed to be as fair as possible for users
• Lowers Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through built-in storage virtualization with thin / over provisioning and deduplication
• Free, built-in backup feature, no third party software necessary

Accepted solution on the market
• 95% of Open-E customers use our software for virtualization with VMware
• 30.000 Open-E software installations in 100+ countries to date
• 400+ reseller and distributor partners worldwide

VMware ReadyTM Storage certified

• Storage Certification for VMware vSphere® 5.5, 6.0, 6.5
• Works effectively with VMware infrastructures
• Advanced solutions with vSphere integrated and validated, including disaster recovery, multipathing, offload capabilities, High Availability clustering and storage management

On- & Off-site Data Protection

By using Open-E JovianDSS with VMware vSphere® 5.5 and 6.x, Enterprises can achieve Business Continuity and architect HA Storage Setups.

What is On- & Off-site Data Protection in Open-E JovianDSS?

• Backup of everything
   All running virtual machines with applications and data, even databases backups are consistent.
• Solved problem of backup window
   Backup window reduced to minutes, only data changes are replicated every interval.
• Protection against Ransomware
   Very frequent snapshots with instant access to all data provide quick way to roll-back to the state before a virus attack.
• Instant access to and restore of previous data versions
   Old data versions can be accessed and restored quickly. Via SMB every user has direct access to „Previous Versions” without the help of an administrator.
• Optional removal and rotation of backup media
   Thanks to Export/Import users can safely remove the backup media (disks), rotate with other sets, or ship to another location.
