Creation of Disaster Recovery using DSS V6

Application server data is vital for every company. It’s unthinkable just how unfortunate the situation would be if this data were not available due to a major failure or catastrophe. To protect themselves before such an event, companies usually go for traditional tape backup. But, It is best to implement solutions which will automatically save backup data that is stored on a remote server. However smaller companies find such an approach is usually too difficult, mainly because of the following reasons:

  • - The required software/hardware is very expensive
  • - Configuration changes are needed on every PC that go far beyond capabilities of small and medium companies
  • - And, it is difficult and complicated to maintain.

Practical creation of Disaster Recovery using Data Replication with the Open-E DSS V6 product




Open-E Data Storage Software V6 is a very effective, economical approach allowing Disaster Recovery. It is a simple tool available for every size company. Replication is possible within one system, on a local network (LAN) or over a WAN.

  • - No additional applications are required for replication
  • - Configurable by adding different storage disks
  • - Can consolidate data from several servers

Different configurations are available depending on specific needs. Three examples are presented below:


1. Low cost
Replication between two RAID ARRAYs within one system - single system
  • - Motherboard (e.g. all in one) with 1 CPU- 1 GHz, 1 NIC, SATA 1.5Gbps controller
  • - 1 GB main memory
  • - Software or hardware RAID
  • - 2x SATA hard disk drives
2. Medium
Replication between two systems within a single LAN or WAN – two systems
  • - Motherboard with 2 x Dual Core CPU – 2.8 GHz
  • - 8 GB main memory
  • - SATA 3Gbps hardware RAID controller with RAID5
  • - 8 SATA hard disk drives
  • - 4x 1GbE controller (for bonding)
  • - iSCSI Target to the 2nd System Open-E DSS V6
3. High-End
Replication between two systems within a single LAN or WAN - two systems
  • - Motherboard with 2 x Quad Core CPU – 2.4 GHz
  • - 32 GB main memory
  • - SAS/SATA 3Gbps hardware RAID controller with RAID6
  • - 24 SAS/SATA hard disk drives
  • - 2x 10GbE controller (for bonding)
  • - Enclosure with redundant power supply
