Product information

ES-8700DSS Storage Cluster with ZFS file system is now also available with 32 Gbit Fibre Channel to the hosts. Thus for virtualization environments like VMware an excellent performance with extremely low latencies can be achieved, especially as a FullFlash solution with SSDs as shared storage devices. Since both cluster heads access the JBOD with 4 x 12 Gbit SAS, the bandwidth to the SSDs is also not a bottleneck.
The combination of virtualization and storage cluster allows a very high availability. Optionally, the SSDs can also be mirrored over two or more JBODs to achieve additional redundancy.

Model overview

Open-E JovianDSS Software:
  • ZFS filesystem on Linux kernel for maximum data integrity and protection against stealth errors by check-sum and scrubbing
  • disk redundancy by mirror, raidz1, raidz2, raidz3 (equivalent to RAID 1, 5, 6 and triple parity)
  • Cache SSDs for I/O acceleration of write and read access (ZIL and L2ARC) for hard disk volumes (not required for SSDs)
  • nearly unlimited snapshots without performance loss
  • FC, iSCSI and NFS/SMB volumes
  • Thin and over provisioning for optimal use of disk space
  • LZ4 data compression and inline deduplication to reduce gross capacity requirements
