Open-E introduces Data Storage Software V6.
Storage management software provider Open-E Inc announced on Wednesday the general availability of its sixth generation Data Storage Software (DSS) V6 IP-Storage operating system.
The company said that the Open-E Data Storage Software V6 (DSS V6) is a unified file and block storage management operating system (OS) that offers Network Attached Storage (NAS), iSCSI, InfiniBand and Fibre Channel Storage Area Network (SAN) functionality.
The solution allow users to combine NAS systems with iSCSI SAN systems, while enabling the connection of multiple Network Interface Controllers, including Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand.
In addition, the product supports logical volumes greater than 16TB. The software is available with standard license capacity of 4, 8 and 16TB, while extension keys can be purchased to add additional storage capacities from 2TB to 64TB.
In comparison to its legacy versions, the new release adds the following features: new web-based user interface; automatic failover for iSCSI volumes; synchronous and asynchronous volume replication; SCSI-3 persistent reservation; new SNMP based system monitoring; as well as the integration of Network Data Management Protocol 4.0.
The solution can be installed to any media, including internal HDD, RAID Array, USB, SATA and IDE DOM (Disk-On-Module) or any other bootable media.
The free version Open-E DSS V6 Lite, licensed for 2TB of storage and up to 10 downloads per user, can be downloaded at Open-E's portal. It is extendable with Capacity License and Support Keys and can be upgraded to the full working version of Open-E DSS V6.
Older Open-E DSS versions can be upgraded to Open-E DSS V6 for USD420 end user price. No other pricing details were disclosed.
