LINBIT SDS – The Fastest Block Storage for OpenNebula
DRBD provides transparent, real-time replication of block devices without the need for specialty hardware. The combination of LINBIT SDS, DRBD Manage and the OpenNebula add-on provide a seamless integration of the capabilities of Linux’s LVM or ZFS on Linux. This leverages the features available in long established and mature open source software components.
You can define virtual storage pools for OpenNebula as well as the desired redundancy level of your data. The system will spread the instances of the replicated sets evenly over the available storage nodes. Overall, this forms a simple scale-out storage solution protecting your data while delivering the highest performance.
“LINBIT makes our rich management suite for private, public and hybrid clouds even richer. We are very proud to be able to offer our customers the most advanced open source solution for data replication and disaster recovery.“ Rubén S. Montero, CTO of OpenNebula Systems.
