Explore the features and benefits of the CyberStore DSS Range
As soon as the CyberStore DSS storage server starts, the Setup Wizard helps you with all the network and system settings - you get up fast, with built-in help, and can see immediate results
Tasks can be automatically scheduled for data, volume replication and snapshots - making it easy to setup, so you can concentrate on other tasks
The automated update and rollback makes it easy to update and get the latest features and is also simple to rollback if there is an issue that needs to be resolved first - reducing system downtime
the CyberStore DSS range will automatically notifies the system administrator via e-mail when there are RAID or HDD problems, making it easy to troubleshoot and quickly fix problems
The CyberStore DSS range is built on Open-E storage management software which runs on a Linux Platform because of its proven stability, unlike others which are less stable or which have limited and diminishing support for new hardware
The system tracks and logs changes prior to affecting the main file system, making the file system more reliable
Provides continuous backup/replication of data - far superior to 24 hour snapshot backups (lose approx. 17 e-mails in between backups, versus up to 10,000 on an Exchange e-mail system) - also much quicker to restore (20 minutes vs. 3-5 hour tape backup). If available, usually an expensive option for other storage solutions
The Broadberry CyberStore DSS range can recognise hardware/software failure and immediately re-starts the application on another system without requiring admin intervention or downtime which further reduces downtime at no extra cost
