Open-E Active-Active Failover Solution Build your Failover Cluster

Configure an Open-E DSS powered Active-Active cluster solution below and benefit from these advantages over a single unit:

  • Doubles your overall performance
  • Eliminates a Single Point of Failure
  • Self-Validation of the system!

What is Open-E Active-Active Failover

The Open-E DSS V7 Active-Active Failover Feature Pack allows you to simultaneously run volumes in the active mode on two nodes - providing high availability of data. In the event of a node failing, the other node takes over automatically whilst all application services continue ruinning without interruption.

Broadberry CyberStore DSS high availability failover clusters take advantage of Open-E's Active-Active Cluster feature pack to provide high availability to our award-winning, ultra reliable CyberStore DSS range of storage servers.

Doubles your overall performance

Doubles your overall performance in most of the configurations. You just need to set it up right.

Eliminates a Single Point of Failure

Eliminates a Single Point of Failure by configuring Active-Active clusters without shared (common) discs. Thanks to this, your data is more secure.

Self-Validation of the system!

Self-Validation of the system! When starting a cluster, DSS V7 checks all critical settings on each node, including: (SCSI IDs, tasks, ping notes, configurations, resource pools, auxiliary paths, and more). This way, clusters can’t be started if they were configured wrong.

Cluster security

Cluster security is improved by the ability to configure as many Auxiliary paths as many network connections you have.

Increased sensibility

Increased sensibility for network Failures, thanks to the possibility of configuring Ping Nodes

Speeds up networking connectivity

Speeds up networking connectivity, since I/O traffic is equally balanced on two nodes.

Fully utilises all processing power

Fully utilises all processing power on both cluster nodes.

This feature enables you to simultaneously run volumes in the active mode on two nodes - providing high availability of data.

If one node fails, the other one takes over automatically and all application services continue to run without interruption.

Once the failed node is available again in the resource pool, the storage administrator can move the activity of selected volumes back to the node of choice.

Who Needs High Active-Active Automatic Failover?

Broadberry's range of Open-E powered storage appliances improve overall cluster performance since the read, write and replication traffic can be balanced between both nodes using Active-Active Automatic Failover for iSCSI. This crucial Data Storage functionality can be used for:

  • High Availability
  • Cloud Storage
  • Storage for Virtualisation
  • Business Continuity
  • and many more.
