Open-E’s flagship product is now updated with the new Off-site Data Protection Service feature for higher storage efficiency and security
Atlanta, Georgia; May 2, 2016: – Open-E, a leading developer of innovative data storage software used for building and managing reliable NAS and SAN storage environments, released a new update for its software defined Open-E JovianDSS. The storage management software is now equipped with Off-site Data Protection Service (ODPS) for Backup and Disaster Recovery.
Off-site data protection is a strategy for disaster recovery to send business-critical data out of the main storage location. This way, servers with crucial data can easily be restored in case of an unexpected disaster.
The Off-site Data Protection Service in Open-E JovianDSS update 12 enables asynchronous replication to local or co-locations. Thanks to this feature, it is easy to set up backup with a retention interval plan or disaster recovery for virtual environments like VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix Xen etc. With the functionality, rotational auto-snapshots can be created, and snapshot deltas asynchronously replicated to local or remote destinations. With encrypted and buffered data replication for ODPS, security and efficiency of storage environments can be significantly increased.
Open-E JovianDSS users can update the software at no cost by downloading the up12 update directly from the Open-E website. In order to support Open-E users when configuring the Off-site Data Protection Service, the company provides a detailed video tutorial, showing the setup step by step, together with data deduplication and compression demo, ODPS quick start, as well as pool corruption and disaster recovery simulation.
For users who have not experienced the advanced features yet, Open-E is offering a free online demo on their website. This simulated version of Open-E JovianDSS does not require any installation.
