Digital Networks UK Ltd have released version 2.0 of the Openvault storage platform for inclusion on their established Teravault range of storage systems.
Providing block based virtualized SAN storage, the Openvault platform is unique in supporting any combination of iSCSI, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand network fabrics. 10 Gigabit Ethernet is fully supported with speeds of over 1 gigabyte per second.
Openvault also supports file based storage protocols including NFS, CIFS and GlusterFS.
Version 2.0 introduces failover support. The failover service makes it dramatically easier to manage Openvault servers where replication takes place. Multiple IP based storage services are supported including iSCSI, NFS, Samba and GlusterFS. Storage services can be live migrated from one storage server to another - even while clients are connected.
Other new features in version 2.0 include:
Openvault offers SAN management capabilities at a fraction of the costs traditionally associated with such systems.
Openvault is available with the Digital Networks Teravault line of storage servers.
Openvault provides block based virtualized SAN storage for network clients. The platform is unique in that it supports any combination of IP, Fibre Channel or InfiniBand network fabrics. Openvault supports both your current and future network fabric without having to change your storage hardware. Openvault is designed to dramatically simplify the creation and ongoing management of SANs.
