NASdeluxe NDL-5000R/L powered by Open-E

The NASdeluxe NDL-5000R/L systems are unified storage systems, which can be used individually or in a cluster. For servers they offer block-based storage via iSCSI or Fibre Channel, for clients file-based storage via NAS and/or CIFS/SMB.

The Open-E DSS V7 software offers the possibility to operate an iSCSI and NFS cluster with failover in Active-Active mode. Thus the performance of both cluster nodes is available.

The NDL-5000R/L systems are available in versions with up to 72 drive bays per enclosure. Depending on the application, fast SAS- or high-capacity SATA-HDDs or SSDs can be used simultaneously.

Open-E DSS Operating System

Open-E Data Storage Software adds new backup cap-abilities, simplified setup and storage management, extensibility, and is especially tuned to provide optimal data throughput and data protection for centralized storage. Open-E DSS increases iSCSI target efficiency by supporting multiple iSCSI initiators on different volumes, without sacrificing NAS performance.

Independent tests have shown that the Open-E storage software is offering one of the best data throughput and  performances. This makes Open-E DSS especially suitable for network environments with many clients or storage applications for multi-video streaming, HDTV and others, needing a high data throughput and I/O. The integrated performance features of the Open-E DSS provide tuning tools like: Multipath I/O (MPIO), teaming of multiple NICs, Jumbo Frames settings, parameter settings of drivers, support for up to 32 CPUs, support for FC-HBA´s, 10GbE Cards, InfiniBand, Intel I/O AT and TCP/IP Offload Engines.
