Satisfied customers are our first priority - read about their positive experiences with our products.
The setup was installed and brought into production at e-shelter on August 30, 2017. Apart from a single planned shutdown in Nov 2018 due to a JovianDSS update, there hasn’t been a single disk failure nor a second of downtime since then. The e-shelter Innovation Lab team, partners and Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH are very pleased with the impressive performance and stability of Open-E’s JovianDSS.
We use Dell hardware in our company and we also wanted to run our Open-E High Availability Cluster on this platform. We were convincingly and competently consulted regarding the selection of suitable hardware as well as the subsequent configuration. The result is a High Availability Cluster with an outstanding price-performance ratio. Partly because ITgration GmbH understood how to implement the project in such a way that it perfectly met our requirements.
“The main challenge to be overcome was the responsiveness of the control center, which mainly provides mission-critical security and service. After six years of using Open-E DSS V6, the insights gained in terms of product stability, performance and the uncomplicated, solution-oriented and sympathetic service provided by Open-E there was no reason to strive for a change in product and supplier. After careful consideration of each product the conclusion was: “Never change a winning team!” and we decided for a transfer to the Open-E DSS V7 Data Storage Software.”
The employees in the terminal server sessions with the frontend of the CRM were impressed by the high performance of Open-E JovianDSS. As a test, we also ran these SQL VMs on the old DSS V7 cluster. The initial opening of an address database (about 2.2 billion addresses) took up to 22 seconds in the old system, the second opening went down to 17 seconds. The same VMs open the address database on Open-E JovianDSS system in less than 2 seconds. The second opening of all databases is obviously not measurable because of the good caching. In addition, videos for online training and internal promotional purposes run from Open-E JovianDSS Cluster did not indicate any performance slumps to date. Memon has confirmed the full success of the system.
We have chosen Open-E DSS V7 mainly because of our requirements for data replication combined with automatic failover for maximum availability of all data which in our case is a must. This software combined with great EUROstor solution is a guarantee that our IT environment has everything that’s needed.
We are very satisfied with both the Open-E DSS-V7 system and the new Open-E JovianDSS. The ZFS-based JovianDSS offers us synchronous data security over two fire compartments with excellent performance. What is more, it has already been tested that a fire compartment can be switched off without any loss in day-to-day business. The memory of the Open-E JovianDSS can be easily extended as needed, which has already been carried out during operation without any disturbance.”
Open-E DSS V7 did the job during the first years but as our business requirements were growing we needed even more flexibility than before. The Open-E JovianDSS ZFS-based solution provides us with the demanded flexibility. What is more, thanks to the Metro Cluster setup we can now provide our twin datacenter with high speed SSD storage.
We chose this solution because of its best-in-class features. Open-E JovianDSS is based on the ZFS file system which is easy to configure and manage. High Availability provides us with the sense of security, as we can rest assured that our data is fully protected even in case of a serious error. We’ve been using this system already for a year and our experience of this product is very positive, as it is stable, robust and offers great performance.
Thanks to Open-E JovianDSS we were able to successfully replicate one of our 40TB zvol from Phoenix, AZ to other location in NJ. It took about two weeks at the speed of 275Mbs. The zvol has our public remote backup data on it with very large daily change rate but our the retention space is still quite low – about 1TB for two weeks.
In our Cisco Lab we were looking for a complete Enterprise class NAS/SAN solution that would work across our Mobile Internet Technology test beds used for product testing, solution testing, PoC’s and IOT’s for MITG solutions. The solution needed to be reliable, feature rich and flexible. We looked at FreeNAS and other commercial products such NetAPP and EMC. In the end Open-E DSS V7 had the features and flexibility we needed to complete our projects. The flexibility of the Open-E DSS V7 on our Cisco UCS HW was key to being able to move quickly between ever changing storage needs. It has been straight forward to setup, maintain and tuning was effortless. We can quickly setup many and modify the Open-E DSS V7 volumes from 200GB to 5TB for usage with our file protocols with CIF’s, NFS and Fibre Channel volumes as well. The design of the GUI is very easy to navigate which reduces the learning curve allowing us to be more productive. Open-E DSS V7 has been proven to be reliable and robust for our storage and database needs. Support was another factor in our requirements and that has been proven to be excellent before install, during install and with the ongoing usage of Open-E DSS V7.
