DNUK Releases Zetavault 3.0 ZFS Storage Platform

Thursday 31 October, 2013
DNUK has released version 3.0 of the Zetavault storage platform.

Zetavault is a Linux based ZFS storage software platform with enterprise class features which allows you to turn commodity hardware into centralized data storage servers at significant cost savings. Zetavault eliminates vendor lock-in and provides open, unified storage management at a fraction of the cost of what traditional storage vendors charge.

The software can be installed on any 64-bit X86 system on which Linux can be installed. A free 60-day trial version is available to download.

Zetavault includes full integration with OpenZFS. ZFS is a revolutionary file system and logical volume manager that fundamentally changes the way file systems are administered, with features and benefits not found in any other file system available today. ZFS is robust, scalable, and easy to administer. It provides greater space for files, hugely improved administration and greatly improved data integrity and security.

The platform provides unified storage for SAN and NAS. For block based SAN storage, iSCSI, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand SRP protocols are supported. For file based NAS storage, NFS, CIFs and FTP protocols are supported. Zetavault supports any combination of IP, Fibre Channel or InfiniBand network fabrics on the same system at the same time.

The software is VMware Ready and Citrix Ready. This makes it easy for customers to choose Zetavault and know that it will work with the leading virtualization platforms.

Zetavault has a continuous data replication feature with automatic failover. For IP based storage services - iSCSI, NFS and CIFS - it is possible to "live migrate" the services from one node to another without any disruption to the storage clients. This further increases availability of the system since there is no need to plan downtime for kernel or firmware updates to the system or to perform hardware maintenance.

A web based application is used for management. The application supports PCs, phones and tablets.
