LINBIT SDS provides transparent, real-time replication of block devices without the need for specialty hardware. LINBIT SDS offers, with the add-on for OpenNebula and the LINSTOR middle-ware, a seamless integration of the capabilities of Linux’s LVM or ZFS on Linux in combination with DRBD’s replication to OpenNebula. Thus, it leverages on all the features available in these long-established and mature open source software components. You can define virtual storage pools for OpenNebula that define 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. The solutions contain open source components bundled with support from it’s creators.
