LINBIT® is a software clustering and Disaster Recovery company specializing in data replication – including persistent block storage. The heart of LINBIT’s open-source technology is DRBD®. DRBD allows block storage between servers to be replicated asynchronously or synchronously without sacrificing performance or reliability. LINBIT has led the way in High Availability since 2001. DRBD has been included in the Linux kernel since version 2.6.33 (2009), has been deployed on all major Linux distributions and is hardware and software agnostic.
But what if data is to be stored over long distances? That’s why we developed LINBIT DR – the Disaster Recovery solution. Data can thus be replicated across any geographically separate site. As a result, companies can guarantee maximum security for their own data – natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes or volcanic eruptions are no longer a risk for your mission critical data with Disaster Recovery.
In the event that data is distributed across numerous nodes, LINBIT offers Software-Defined Storage (SDS) for this purpose. LINBIT enables data availability, performance, and scalability, making LINBIT SDS perfect for your cloud or container storage environment. LINBIT SDS is perfect for cloud (public & private) environments requiring data replication, while containing high i/o applications such as databases.
For the management of storage volumes of Linux clusters, LINBIT has developed a tool called LINSTOR® – which works with Kubernetes, Proxmox, OpenNebula, and OpenShift environments. LINSTOR automates deployment of storage volumes, including replicated volumes using DRBD. It is the perfect puzzle piece for higher-level management frameworks. Some examples of this include enterprise virtualization solutions, cloud-management systems, and storage target software.
LINBIT HA allows replacement of traditional and legacy shared storage like SAN or NAS solutions. The software seamlessly replicates data between servers, while eliminating “single points of failure” within your IT infrastructure, regardless of which applications are running on top.
Numerous integrations are offered for all products, such as Kubernetes, OpenNebula, OpenShift, Proxmox or Docker, to enable dynamic and flexible processes for block storage. LINBIT also relies on excellent 24×7 support to maintain its customers block storage day and night.
