Software vendor launches new release for flagship product to boost Cluster security and avoid split-brain situations

Atlanta, Georgia; March 21, 2018: – Open-E, a leading developer of innovative data storage software, today released a new update for their ZFS- and Linux-based Open-E JovianDSS Data Storage Software. The update 24 is free of charge for all software users and is available for download on the company’s website. 

The update includes a Pool activity-based Cluster Split-Brain Prevention feature with a “Separated Mode” mechanism. Serving as an additional layer for data safety, this functionality protects the cluster setup against an event called split-brain, which causes fission of a cluster that leads – in most cases – to data loss.

Apart from the Cluster Split-Brain Prevention functionality, the update 24 contains:

  • UEFI boot mode support 
    in addition to the existing BIOS boot mode support.
  • Microsemi Adaptec SmartHBA and SmartRAID drivers
    to support the newest line of storage controllers by Microsemi Adaptec.
  • SMB DOS-attributes option on GUI 
    to enable / disable "DOS-attributes" (Samba).
  • Remote Support auto-reconnect after interrupted or lost connection 
    through additional IP addresses in the software.
  • NIC re-order functionality 
    to assign a specific physical Ethernet interface to a specific eth name. 

“In Open-E JovianDSS update 24, Open-E’s engineers have added a set of new functionalities to make storage management and maintenance safer, more compatible and user-friendly”, said Krzysztof Franek, CEO and president of Open-E about the latest software update. “Not only is the software more secure because of the new features, but also thanks to new drivers and a range of other fixes. And there’s more yet to come.”

The update is available on:
