NFS Filer - Open-E
NFS Filer
NAS (Network Attached Storage) is a storage technology that can simplify
Key uses for NAS:
your work and improve the collaborative process in your company. Primarily,
•File sharing
•Mass file storage
•Home directories
•File server consolidation and centralization
•Databases, such as Oracle or MySQL (iSCSI or FC
is better usage with Databases)
•Server Virtualization environments, such as
VMware or Hyper-V
•Data protection and Backup
NAS is dedicated for file sharing – delivering necessary capabilities for storing
and sharing data. Solutions based on NAS have been mostly used by small
and medium enterprises (SME) needing reliable storage without protocol or
connectivity restrictions.
Benefits of using Open-E software for NAS filer
High performance – Confirmed by extensive testing. Open-E
software enables maximum performance of all storage components. We form strategic alliances with storage vendors, including
LSI and Adaptec, to ensure compatibility with the latest technologies, like SSD RAID caching. To further increase capabilities of a
file-based storage, Open-E includes SAN-type features, like Jumbo
Frames, NIC Bonding or RAM caching to the NAS appliance.
Multi-protocol support – File-sharing over any network protocol. In addition to standard NAS protocols (SMB/CIFS, FTP, HTTP,
NFS v2, v3), some highly demanded protocols are also supported,
such as the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP), File eXchange Protocol (XP) or NDMP data server.
Easy-to-use Software – Designed for simplicity and optimized
for achieving quick installation. First setup is very simple, as this
process is automated and a wizard guides you through the basic
setup. Additionally, a user-friendly webGUI makes the administration and deployment a painless task.
Hardware independence – Eliminates vendor lock-in and capacity limitations. Choose storage components that best suit your
needs and don’t waste money on unnecessary components. With
unlimited storage capacity you can easily expand your storage
space as your data grows. Adapt the system for high performance
or low cost and control your total cost of ownership.
Security – A stable solution that ensures highest security of data.
The integrated Antivirus periodically detects malware and viruses,
even while files are transferred via SMB/CIFS protocol. You can increase security with RAID protection, replication, snapshots, and
with our backup agents are supported, you can also easily roll
back to a previous point-in-time in case of a disaster.
Flexibility – Helpful data management functionalities and centralized control. Manage how you share your data with features
like: user access control, permission assignment, WORM technology support, UID/GID mapping or Quota per users and groups.
Also, access your company servers and data through only one
console, or even from your phone.
