Continuous availability of all data keeps business running and allows companies to maintain all operations even if critical situations or disasters appear. This is achieved with High Availability systems, which aim to provide a data storage user with the highest possible performance, reliability, availability, redundancy and efficiency by minimizing downtime periods and eliminating single points of failure. VFusionOS offers dozens of options in regards to architecting High Availability environments with iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC) and NFS, SMB (CIFS) client protocols. These options allow you to set up High Availability Load-Balanced Storage Clusters that ensure reliability and redundancy through failover in case of a server crash.
VFusionOS High Availability Clusters
High Availability architecture examples
VFusionOS helps users to build their storage environment flexibly and according to individual business needs. Whether a system should be based on two nodes, each with its own hard drives attached directly to the node, or with a connection by means of multiple JBODs over SAS or FC, or even with two servers and a common set of direct-attached hard drives within one server enclosure – VFusionOS offers unlimited options to architect storage environments.
