Best Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
If your priorities are lower TCO, scalability and great functionality, then Open-E software is the best option for you. You don't have to compromise your business needs, as we offer you advanced features and best in-class performance at an affordable price. In case of an Open-E DSS V7 16TB license this means less than 9 cents per 1GB. Plus, it runs on an independent OS, so there is no need to purchase any host OS. When it comes to Open-E JovianDSS, the licensing is based on the storage capacity and designed to be as fair as possible for users: You license only the usable capacity for mirrored arrays. For arrays with single, dual or triple parity, the license counts all disk capacity in the array but without cache and spare disks.
If you want to widely improve your storage performance, reduce connection latency and maximize bandwidth, then Open-E software will provide a rapid improvement in efficiency of storing and delivering even massive amounts of data. Extensive tests proved that Open-E DSS V7 and Open-E JovianDSS both offer one of the highest data throughput and performance levels.
