CyberStore DSS® iSCSI SAN/NAS Appliances:

Based on Open-E's newly released JovianDSS storage operating system, the CyberStore JovianDSS® storage array provides enterprise class features and high availability.

Open-E JovianDSS utilises all features provided by the ZFS technology to the fullest. Its functionalities ensure a streamlined management with pools instead of single volumes, as well as consistent data protection and integrity.

Tiered RAM and SSD caching

for IOPS performance boosts when using low latency solid state drives.

Thin and over provisioning

for better utilization and easier administration of storage space.

Inline data deduplication

for remote backup, VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure), and better utilisation of available storage capacity.

Data compression

for saving even more usable storage space on block level.

Data integrity

for minimising data corruption through check-summing.

Unlimited scalability

for nearly unlimited LUN sizes in the storage system.

Broadberry Storage Solutions can come configured with both of Open-E's storage software offerings, DSS and JovianDSS.
