Open-E JovianDSS is a ZFS- and Linux-based Data Storage Software designed especially for enterprise-sized Software Defined Storage environments.
The Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade, multi-award-winning storage appliances has been designed and built to be fully compatible with Open-E's ZFS-based storage operating system Jovian-DSS.
The CyberStore range, configured with Open-E JovianDSS provides unlimited options to architect HA storage environments with SMB/CIFS, NFS and iSCSI protocols. It's the answer to almost any storage requirement, either as a single node, a virtualised HA setup or a Big Data cluster environment. Open -E JovianDSS High Availability Clusters with Ethernet, SAS or Fibre Channel connections ensure reliability and redundancy by eliminating single points of failure.
The Standard HA Cluster Feature Pack enables High Availability for two server nodes connected to a single storage with one or more JBODs.
With the Advanced Metro HA Cluster Feature Pack you can achieve High Availability for two server nodes with storage mirror over Ethernet of up to 50 miles (80km), using a storage at each location ( Dual Storage ).
Benefit from a full-service, Software Defined Storage package which you can customise according to your needs.
On- & Off-site Data Protection in Open-E JovianDSS provides a strategy for Backup, Archiving and Disaster Recovery by enabling asynchronous replication to local sites or co-locations. This way, servers with crucial data can be easily and instantly restored in case of an unexpected disaster.
This functionality allows you to create consistent snapshots and to asynchronously replicate snapshot deltas to local or remote destinations. Additionally, replication tasks can be scheduled according to the specific user requirements for secure archiving. Encryption enhances security even further while buffered data replication significantly increases the efficiency of storage environments with Open-E JovianDSS. The functionality can be managed via the Command Line Interface (CLI). The software now also includes VMware vSphere Storage APIs - Array Integration (VAAI) for iSCSI data acceleration.
On-&-Off-Site Data Protection effectively prevents data loss and minimises the recovery time with high-speed Disaster Recovery, lowering the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) in every backup strategy. It allows setting up an application- consistent backup with a retention interval as a Disaster Recovery plan for virtual environments based on VMware.The software does not require the installation of any backup agent.This way, servers with crucial data can be easily and instantly restored in case of an unexpected disaster.

The Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade storage servers are designed and built for a wide-range of storage applications.
Completely customisable from processing to storage type and capacity, to operating system - the CyberStore range is your go-to storage platform.
The CyberStore range of storage servers are used by the world's largest organisations from the BBC, to the CERN project, governement institutions, universities and much more.
Year-after-year, the Broadberry CyberStore range of unified storage appliances has beaten the likes of Dell and HPE to be crowned "Best Storage Appliance" by PC Pro magazine.
When compared to the likes of DELL, HPE, EMC etc, the Broadberry CyberStore range of enterprise-grade unified storage appliances is up to 60% cheaper, although using the same quality components such as Seagate drives and Kingston RAM.
The Bradberry CyberStore range has been built from industry-leading commodity hardware, and carefully designed to ensuure full compatibility with leading storage operating systems and database engines.
Broadberry enterprise storage appliances are on average 86% lower cost than EMC and 55% lower cost than DELL although built using the same leading-brand server components such as Intel processors and Samsung memory. HPE hard drives are rebadged Toshiba enterprise-class drives, the exact same models as found in Broadberry storage appliances.
When you buy a Broadberry storage appliance all drive bays are supplied with caddies - so if in 6 months time you decide to expand the storage you can source it freely from the marketplace or ourselves if you wish. The only way to add hard drives to HPE servers is to buy the drives along with caddies from HPE for 200% the price of Broadberry's price.
Broadberry storage appliances come with enterprise-grade features like IPMI included, whereas HPE charge large fees for perpetual licences for the same features.
Our website allows you to configure your server online with accurate prices, as opposed to NetApp who require several face-to-face meetings with them before they'll give you a price.
Over recent years there's been a massive move from the world's largest organisations such as Google to purchase their servers from the likes of Broadberry rather than DELL and HPE. This move is fuelled by the rise in commodity hardware.
