The Enterprise HA system based on Open-E JovianDSS is now tested and certified to be used in iSCSI and NFS cluster environments 

Atlanta, Georgia; December 15, 2015: – Open-E, a leading developer of innovative data storage software used for building and managing centralized storage servers, and TAROX, a leading IT supplier for integrated solutions, introduced today the successful High Availability certification of TAROX ParX R2082i G5 with Open-E JovianDSS. Now, enterprise customers have the opportunity to deploy a tested and affordable High Availability storage solution suitable for VDI, databases, web servers and demanding IT environments.

The ParX R2082i G5 storage system is optimized for Private Clouds, Data Centers and includes failover functionality for NFS and iSCSI. Not only does it offer efficiency and flexibility but also the opportunity to deploy a High Availability cluster environment that is exceptional in regards to computing, RAM, storage I/O and network components as well as reduced latency. The system – based on Software Defined Open-E JovianDSS – achieves High Availability by detecting hardware failures and automatically moves virtual IP addresses from the primary to the secondary node.

The TAROX ParX R2082i G5 server features a powerful CPU with two Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2623 v3 3.00GHz, has 128GB RAM and 9.6TB raw capacity. The Read Cache is 2 x 800GB and the Write Log is 2 x 200GB. The network interface consists of four QLogic 10Gbit. The 2U rack with eight 2,5“ disks weighs 37kg. 

The certified solution provides the following advantages and features:

  • Continuous data protection
  • Enhanced storage performance
  • Hardware independence
  • Simplified management
  • High Availability
  • Data compression
  • In-line data deduplication
  • Tiered RAM and SSD Cache

Automatic and scheduled multilayer data integrity checks ensure data consistency. Unlimited snapshots and clones make it easy to implement a disaster protection strategy. The scheduled self-healing mechanism fixes malfunctions and automatically restores full data redundancy in the system and the data compression feature minimizes storage capacity usage and enables the system to read and write quicker, ultimately boosting performance and taking less space. Data is always saved on HDDs and only Hot Data is stored in RAM and SSDs to ensure data safety and increased performance.

“We are very excited to bring to the market the first High Availability certified system from TAROX and Open-E. It  is  the perfect option for enterprise customers who need to store  business-critical data and are looking to deploy a High Availability  cluster  setup  with  NFS  or  iSCSI”, says Krzysztof Franek, CEO and president of Open-E. “By using our cluster management solution, all features can be quickly accessed and maintained by the storage administrator from only one place, whether for initial configuration or re-configuration after a failover. That is a great advantage”, adds Franek.

An additional benefit of the High Availability Storage solution is the technical support. Thanks to the long-term TAROX and Open-E partnership each storage cluster with Open-E JovianDSS on a TAROX ParX R2082i G5 is supported from the initial installation to everyday tasks and maintenance.
