euroNAS Enterprise Virtualization OS (eEVOS) is a complete virtualization solution providing you great performance, high-availability, and manageability features.
- Runs on standard server hardware
- Provides virtualization, storage and backup in a single product
- Import wizard imports your existing VMWare or Hyper-V images within minutes
- Consistent backups of your running virtual machines without downtime
- and much more…
Easy management of virtual machines
With eEVOS VMM you can create, manage, monitor and backup your VMs through an intuitive web-based user interface with automated email notifications and warnings.
Import your existing VMWare and Hyper-V virtual machines within minutes
Switching from VMware or Hyper-V is simple. VM Import wizard will take care of everything – just point it to the virtual disk, it will automatically convert it and create a new virtual machine.
Cluster Aware Snapshots of your virtual machines
VM Snapshot work on any node even if the file is used and opened on another node. This allows you to create snapshots of your VMs and run these snapshot VMs on a different node than the original VM is running.
Clone your virtual machine
Create fully independent clones of your original virtual machine at its current state.
It will use data blocks of the original VM as a reference and requires much less disk space on the disk.
Although it shares data blocks with the original virtual machine – it is stil 100% idependent of the original.
Original VM can be deleted any time and the clone can simultaneously run on any server
VM Failover in case of node failure
Should a hardware or software fault occur, it is detected through intelligent features. Running server will automatically take over and restart the virtual machines.
Consistent backups of your live virtual machines
Backup your VMs reliable and scheduled without downtime. Support for Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) cares for the best possible data consistency of your Windows VMs. With this you can also copy files that would be usually blocked during write I/O (for example Registry or system data bases).
As target you can use a standard NAS server. VMs are backed up via deduplication. Double data blocks will only be copied once.
Checksum check makes sure that backup is consistent. Backup is not tied to the existing installation – you can restore the backup on any eEVOS installation.
Thin Provisioning will save you costs by reducing storage allocations by virtualizing the storage for the VMs. Only the sectors of the VM which have been written to are actually placed on physical disk.
Maximal I/O for your virtual machines
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 virtualization server that will provide you with higher I/O performance and larger capacity at the same time.
