<strong>Dallas </strong><br />Open-E Inc., a provider of unified file and block management software solutions, has introduced major enhancements to the Open-E Data Storage Server (DSS). The new enhancements &mdash; automatic failover for high-availability clusters; WORM (Write Once Read Many) support for digital archiving; and NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) support for universal backup &mdash; provide better data security, increased fault tolerance and improved availability of all data, ultimately delivering better overall performance and value.<br /><br />”The rapid growth of data proliferation requires enterprises to find high-performance, yet cost-effective storage management solutions,” said Stuart Fisher, director of business development at AIC. “Open-E continues to exceed customer demands by delivering unified NAS/SAN solutions that set new standards of price and performance for flexible network storage systems.&rdquo;<br /><br />Open-E DSS Delivers Superior Performance and Functionality to Enterprises<br />The Open-E DSS provides superior performance, reliability and scalability delivered at a fraction of the cost of alternative offerings. Enhanced features include:<br /><br />Automatic failover enables the Open-E DSS server to automatically switch over from a primary storage server to a secondary device in the event the primary server fails &mdash; or to simplify scheduled maintenance. Such functionality is ideal for high-availability environments such as financial institutions.<br /><br />The WORM feature allows data to be permanently written to disk and available for reading only, thus preventing accidental modification or erasure of data. This feature improves performance in environments &mdash; such as educational institutions and government agencies &mdash; where documents are required to be retained for long periods.<br /><br />Support for NDMP allows Open-E DSS to control backup and recovery data streams between a primary storage data server and a secondary one in heterogeneous network environments. Open-E&rsquo;s implementation of NDMP is supported by Symantec Netbackup, EMC Legato Networker, CA Brightstor and others. NDMP enables organizations to seamlessly integrate new backup applications with existing ones.<br /><br />&ldquo;Our next-generation Open-E DSS product offering continues our commitment to create a scalable, unified storage management solution that gives customers flexibility, enterprise-class performance and functionality at SMB prices,&rdquo; said Krzysztof Franek, CEO, Open-E.<br />
