Product information

ES-8700 JovianDSS Cluster can also be offered as Cluster-in-a-Box: two mainboards in one enclosure with shared backplane.
With Open-E’s JovianDSS software also active/active clusters can be configured, speeding up performance by sharing the load on the cluster nodes.
Storage cluster with ZFS file system offer extremely high data availability. The file system contains check sums of all data and addresses each disk directly, without RAID controller, thus being able to recognize and correct even single defects of any disk immediately. Furthermore practically infinite numbers of snapshots can be generated without performance loss.
The Cluster supports iSCSI as well as NFS and CIFS access.
Additionally the data can be asynchronously replicated to a second site, over the network. On the other side only a single ES-8700 Jovian DSS system is needed. But of course this could also be a second cluster.
Some models have been certified as a complete system by Open-E. The other models of the series only differ in the configuration.
