Open-E Data Storage Server is an all-in-one IP-storage OS offering NAS and iSCSI (both target and initiator) functionality in a single operation system combined with excellent price performance value, enhanced management and superior reliability to organizations of all sizes.
Key Points
  • Support for a wide variety of hardware RAID platforms
  • iSCSI initiator/iSCSI target
  • Volume replication
  • Multiple Network Interface Card (NIC) support
  • Adaptive Load Balancing (ALB)
  • Adapter Fault Tolerance (AFT)
  • Task mechanism with scheduling
  • Backup utility
  • Network UPS support
  • Fiber Channel support
  • Multi-CPU support
Product Features
  • Powerful and intuitive web-based user interface
    The web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the Open-E Data Storage Server (DSS) software makes remote management of the storage device a simple task. By using a web-browser, the DSS can be easily managed from anywhere within the network.
  • Secured administration access
    Open-E's DSS is accessible and configured through a web-based, password-protected GUI over Secured Socket Layer (SSL) administration access.
  • Remote access of console tool
    The Open-E DSS supports remote access of the console tool enabling management of the server from anywhere in the network.
  • Multiple management levels
    The Open-E DSS supports three levels of administrative rights: full access, maintenance and administration.
  • Standard network gateway support
    The Open-E DSS can be used with structured networks in business environments and has an optional data access via Intranet or Internet.
  • DHCP client
    Assigning IP addresses in a network can be centrally managed and automated through using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • Multiple Network Interface Card (NIC) support
    The Open-E DSS supports usage of two or more network cards to access separate sub-networks or to increase the bandwidth and allows administrators to select services to be enabled on a specified NIC.
  • Adapter Fault Tolerance (AFT)
    AFT assures greater reliability by providing a secondary network adapter which automatically takes over, should the primary network adapter fails.
  • Adaptive Load Balancing (ALB)
    ALB enhances data throughput by automatically routing data through alternative paths as the application changes.
  • InfiniBand support
    Open-E supports InfiniBand cards that increase bandwidth, improved overall performance, and reduced message latency across connections.
  • Proxy settings
    The Open-E software allows the configuration of the Proxy Server for Internet connections.
  • IPsec support
    The Open-E DSS supports the Secure Internet Protocol (IPsec). This protocol secures data transmitted across a network, preventing confidential and personal information being intercepted or modified.
  • Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) support
    The DSS software includes S.M.A.R.T. support for detecting and reporting the status of the Hard Disk Drives (HDD) anticipated on failures.
  • Multiple snapshots with scheduling function
    The Open-E DSS supports "Multiple Snapshot with Scheduling" to create snapshots at predefined points in time.
  • Multiple logical volume and groups
    Logical volume groups allow storage administrators to create logical storage pools that span multiple physical disk drives. With it's support of multiple logical volume groups, the Open-E DSS makes it easier to meet the changing needs of users and applications while making the maximum use of available physical disk space.
  • Online logical volume expansion
    Online logical volume expansion allows administrators to change the size of storage volumes as needed without having to restart the application, recreate the volume, and back up and restore data to the volume.
  • Hardware monitoring
    Open-E DSS monitors hardware status such as temperature, voltage and fan speed provided by the motherboard's sensors.
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
    The DSS uses SNMP for monitoring data throughput, Central Processing Unit (CPU) and Random Access Memory (RAM) usage to name a few.
  • File system with journaling support
    Journaling support makes the file system more reliable and allows easier, faster recovery from unexpected shutdowns.
  • User and group quota control
    Administrators can control users with large disk requirements by assigning a dedicated share or by restricting their individual usage through individual user quotas or to assign a quota to a group to which the user belongs.
  • MPIO support
    The Open-E DSS allows set multiple connections to one target increasing performance and reliability.
  • Volume replication
    Data is safe thanks to the Open-E volume replication feature creating an exact copy of source volume in real time. In the event of volume disaster, data on destination volume remains intact.
  • Task mechanism with scheduling
    Management of all the tasks is much easier and convenient using the unified task mechanism with scheduling for data and volume replication, backup and snapshot. Tasks are scheduled as to when to activate and may have many schedules.
  • SWAP support
    SWAP is used to store memory areas on hard drives instead of Random Access Memory (RAM). The DSS software dumps memory to SWAP in case of additional memory is need.
  • Local backup on dynamic units
    Through the DDS, a local HDD or a USB drive can be defined as a Dynamic Unit and acts like a normal tape drive which can backup the NAS server and be removed without shutting down the server.
  • Cross data synchronization
    Open-E DSS synchronize files and directories from one NAS server to another. Disaster recovery or disk-to-disk backup synchronization utilizes block-based data transfer that minimizes network traffic. DSS can synchronize data in both directions: the DSS can be the source and destination of files at the same time, allowing to cross-backup data on several servers.
