NAS (NFS) failover
NAS (NFS) Failover is basing on two nodes of active-passive configuration. It may be one cluster that is distributed between two locations. Once configured, all data written to the primary server are mirrored to a secondary server. In short, it means that in a data loss situation - on primary server (one of two mentioned nodes) - Open-E DSS V6 automatically switches operation to the secondary server. NFS locks are also reassigned to the secondary server after the primary server fails. Complicated? Perhaps. Effective? Certainly!
What you need?
All you need - of course - is adequate hardware facilities. Such configuration is usually based on nodes deployed in two locations. Furthermore, for
increased safety the hardware is often distributed among two fire protection areas. If you already meet these standards, all you need is to purchase two licenses of Open-E Data Storage Software V6 and an additional Feature Pack - NAS (NFS) Failover. After this is done you may feel free to feel safe.
What you get?
For one, you are ensuring that all your data is safe. Secondly, in case of any doubt and questions, there is professional support which will wait on you hand and foot.
We are aware that every kind of hardware, superior connection, or any node - even when we talk about high-tech solutions - is not indestructible and
has its own limits. It also is still vulnerable to power shortages, communication and equipment faults, fire incidents, maintenance problems or just human error. To reduce risk, we offer one of the most useful safety tools - NAS (NFS) Failover. It is a functionality extension of Open-E Data Storage Software V6. This feature is a highly advanced piece of software which is responsible for the safety of all your data and your peace of mind.
