Running VMware Virtual Machines With Software Defined Storage

VMWare ready storage

The Arxys | Sentio SDS powered by Open-E JovianDSS is a ZFS- and Linux-based Data Storage Software designed especially for enterprise-sized Software Defined Storage environments. Combined with VMware vSphere ESXi, it is a cost-effective, flexible and scalable solution for virtualization that offers highest performance and data efficiency. VMware Virtual Machines certified support delivers rock solid performance with global acceptance.


Open-E JovianDSS based virtualized storage setups with High Availability and/or a sophisticated Hyper-converged Infrastructure offer the best value and quality due to:

  • Storage and Backup for virtual environments
  • Fast implementation and ease of use
  • VMware ReadyTM Storage certification
  • Cost-effectiveness and lower total cost of ownership
  • 30,000+ installations worldwide

VMware ready storageOpen-E JovianDSS provides storage appliance – a physical data storage server or Storage Virtual Appliance, accessed via iSCSI or NFS protocol. Additionally, the storage has a built-in native backup and recovery functionality.

Software solution with Storage and Backup for virtual environments

  1. Data storage software that includes On- and Off-site Data Protection and the optional High Availability cluster feature
  2. Can be implemented as a stand-alone data storage server or as Storage Virtual Appliance (SVA)
  3. Enables consistent backup of Virtual Machines and user data, including databases, and provides advanced schedules and retention plans – lowering RPO (Recovery Point Objective)
  4. Safe and reliable thanks to advanced data protection mechanisms of underlying ZFS file system

Fast implementation and ease of use

  1. Can be installed as a storage for ESXi within minutes and gets connected in a few steps only
  2. Intuitive WebGUI simplifies storage administration
  3. Professional technical support for the complete storage setup including VMware implementation
