The ultimate storage software for high availability
If you’re running a virtualized environment or simply trying to meet the demands of the 24-hour business cycle, you cannot afford downtime.
With euroNAS HA Cluster, you will get the highest level of redundancy, data security, reliability and availability possible, even in the event of a complete server failure.
Unlike most storage solutions on the market, euroNAS storage software is not locked to specific hardware, providing you the maximum flexibility in server selection and allows your server to grow with your business.
Ideal for any sized business with a need to provide critical shared data over a network, euroNAS HA Cluster is used for system and data drives for physical and virtual production servers and critical workstations.
To provide complete freedom of choice in future purchases, full-featured, powerful euroNAS solutions are fully interoperable in heterogeneous (MS, MAC, Linux), 64 bit X86 environments. Help your business grow! Get maximum data security, unbeatable savings and powerful features from euroNAS HA Cluster.
Mirror your data
Our advanced technology creates a cluster of two mirrored servers with real time, continuous data replication and synchronization. Should a hardware or software fault occur, it is detected through intelligent features and the software automatically and immediately moves storage requests to the other server mirrored in the cluster.
Shared storage via iSCSI, SAS or Fibre Channel
Both Nodes share the same storage and can access it simultaneously. This can be SAS, FC or iSCSI storage. euroNAS is ALUA/MPIO aware. Active/Active and Active/Passive connections are supported.
Speed up your storage with euroNAS “Hybrid Storage Cache”
euroNAS “Hybrid Storage Cache” improves the performance of your storage server by dynamically moving frequently used data to a faster, smaller device such as a SSD.
This way you can build a hybrid storage server that will provide you with higher I/O performance and larger capacity at the same time. Learn more …
Is HA Cluster the right solution for me?
euroNAS HA Cluster was designed for use in the most demanding environments, where performance, data security and availability are mission critical. If your storage solution is a performance bottle neck or causes you downtime, euroNAS HA Cluster is the right choice for you.
The advanced technology in euroNAS HA Cluster ensures your network applications will continue to work and your clients can still access their data, even in the event of a complete server failure. While standard NAS servers may have many redundant features, such as RAID, network port failover, etc., only euroNAS HA Cluster has the continuous replication features to provide this level of availability.
The powerful feature set of euroNAS HA Cluster enables users to assign resources (iSCSI, NFS, SMB/CIFS, AFP) to individual servers within the cluster in its Active/Active configuration. This delivers much greater performance, while still maintaining failover redundancy.
Hardware-specific operating systems can restrict your ability to add needed capacity or buy better solutions in the future. Like all euroNAS products, HA Cluster is fully interoperable in heterogeneous AMD/Intel 64 bit X86 environments, enabling customized, flexible solutions to meet current and future needs. This interoperability also allows systems or components to be changed quickly and easily in the event of hardware failure and provides an easy hardware upgrade path.
Easy configuration and Management:
euroNAS HA Cluster is easily installed and configured , usually in under 15 minutes, and offers easy management and monitoring through an intuitive web-based user interface with automated email notifications and warnings. In addition, the mirroring technology and continuous data replication of HA Cluster enables easy planned maintenance on one server in the cluster with no impact on network applications or clients’ access to data.
Optimized for Virtualization
Virtualized environments are perhaps the most demanding of a NAS solution, requiring the utmost in redundancy, data security and availability. euroNAS HA Cluster delivers the High Availability iSCSI and NFS services to make it a perfect storage solution for VMWare ESX, XEN or Microsoft’s Hyper-V .
Server Mirror via EtherneteuroNAS HA Cluster offers high availability through real time, continuous data replication and synchronization between two mirrored servers. Both servers contain identical data securing redundancy, so in case one of the them fails, clients can still access their data. Also it is possible to define which resources should run on which server, enabling more efficient usage of servers and higher performance at the same time. In addition HA cluster supports wide range of services such as SMB/CIFS/AFP, Active Directory authentication (for CIFS and AFP), NFS and iSCSI.
Hardware agnostic OSLegacy storage manufacturers often use proprietary hardware and an operating system which will only run on the hardware in question. With euroNAS you can turn standard servers into powerful storage solutions but at a fraction of the cost compared to their storage solutions.
Software-defined StorageeuroNAS is flexible and supports most servers on the market but you don’t need bare metal hardware. You can use it also as a cost-effective Virtual Storage Appliance within your virtualized environment. You can use your existing storage to build something greater.
Client SupporteuroNAS supports all mayor clients with their native protocols. It works with Microsoft Windows (XP,7, 8, 2003/2008/2012, Hyper-V), VMware ESX/ESXi, Apple MAC OS X incl. XSAN, StorNext, Citrix XenServer 5.x/6.x, Linux.
Hybrid Cache-TieringeuroNAS HA Cluster can be configured for Cache Tiering. It improves the performance of a storage server by dynamically moving frequently used data to a faster, smaller device such an SSD. This hybrid storage server will provide higher I/O performance and larger capacity at the same time. It will analyse automatically incoming data transfer and moves blocks that are used more often to the faster (SSD) disks. The longer the server is in use the more efficient it will become.
Active DirectoryThe server can be configured as a member of Active Directory Domain, users and passwords will be automatically be synchronized with the domain. System Administrators can much easier manage their users and authentication.
SMB/CIFS SupporteuroNAS products support accessing shares through SMB (Server Message Block versions 1, 2 and 3) / CIFS (Common Internet File System) Protocols for Windows clients.
AFP SupporteuroNAS products support accessing shares through AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) for Apple clients.
NFS SupporteuroNAS products can be used for accessing data through NFS (Network File System Protocol) for Linux/Unix clients
iSCSI SupportiSCSI is an IP-based storage networking protocol, which allows creation of virtual disks (iSCSI targets) on the server that can be used for virtualization, shared storage etc. It doesn’t require any dedicated cabling and network devices compared to Fibre Channel targets. euroNAS products support iSCSI, VAAI (vStorage API for Array Integration) for seeding up VMWare and CHAP (Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol) for better network security.
SnapshotsSnapshots allow user to make a single or scheduled copy of the state of a share/iSCSI/FC target at a particular point in time. The snapshot includes configuration and disk data which, if needed, can be restored to the state of the share at the point when the snapshot was made.
Hardware RAID SupporteuroNAS products support hardware RAIDs with various controllers from different manufacturers for better performance of raid arrays. In addition to that euroNAS servers offer Hardware RAID management tool integrated within the interface and support email notifications. It also includes LSI Storage Management Agent for easier management. Check our HCL page for compatibility check.
Software RAID SupportCost effective redundancy solution with support of all major RAID layouts including RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6. It also supports online capacity expansion, Hotspare Drive and email notification in case of disk failure.
APC UPS SupporteuroNAS Server will automatically shut down the server on low batter. It will notify you via email in case of power failure. Network and USB APC UPS devices are supported
Network Port BondingNetwork interfaces can be combined for failover redundancy or increased throughput.
Email NotificationseuroNAS will send email messages in case of disk / power failure, synchronization reports, UPS or cluster notifications.
