On- and Off-site Data Protection

Open-E JovianDSS combines several technologies to create the On- and Off-site Data Protection feature - a strategy for Backup and Disaster Recovery that allows an instant restore of crucial company data in case of an unexpected disaster. It enables consistent Snapshots for virtual machines and asynchronous replication to local or remote destinations. The rotational Snapshots are stored according to a retention-interval plan for flexible backup that can be customized to specific user needs. Additionally, Open-E JovianDSS with On- and Off-site Data Protection does not require any backup agent.

  • Easy-to-use, efficient backups of mission-critical data
  • Scalability and ability to store backups on separate servers on- and off-site to ensure maximum data security
  • Optional instant disaster recovery with unparalleled flexibility – restore from 5 minutes ago or 2 years in the past if needed
  • Provides data security and ensures Business Continuity in combination with a High Availability Cluster
