Satisfied customers are our first priority - read about their positive experiences with our products.
When looking at the solutions from other vendors it was all tied into them, their service and support packages, and if anything went wrong, we would have to wait for them, there would be nothing we could really do. In addition their costs were so much, we wouldn’t be able to go for a hugely redundant solution, and we would be relying on the expensive support to sort our issues if any arose. 100% satisfied with the solution, the system stability is 100%, we have not yet had a second of downtime since we installed our first Open-E Server in April 2020, and since we upgraded this to be a Metro High Availability Failover cluster it would need multiple failures across multiple hosts to be in risk of being corrupted. I love how we can move the storage from one node to another, and reboot the hosts if needed, it’s really slick.
The main reason we have chosen the redundant fail-proof storage solution based on Open-E JovianDSS presented by Boston Server & Storage Solutions was the perfect harmonization of stability, performance, scalability, and flexibility (which is more and more important these days). It allows us to react perfectly to the market needs. Another noteworthy aspect is the amount of electricity saved, about 4 kWh per day, which, thanks to the modern hardware, also benefits the environment and has a positive impact on our electricity costs. Especially the transparent advice in the area of hardware design possibilities on the part of Boston Germany, along with a fair price, convinced me - à la bonne heure. With this solution, we have created the optimal set of their applications in the home office for our customers.
I’ve been managing the IT infrastructure of Möbel Preiss for more than 20 years. I was able to see many server systems coming and going. But the Open-E DSS V7 cluster solution turned out to be a solution tailor-made for us. In compariston to the DELL storage solution we used before, we achieved real redundancy and it was noticeably faster. In my opinion, Open-E has raised the bar even higher with Open-E JovianDSS. We are thrilled with the ease of use, the quality and stability of the storage software and we are pleased that now with the two existing storage nodes have been using for several months it led to our fullest satisfaction. Impressive was also the Open-E Support Service who despite many obstacles did their best to provide us with at least one working node the next day. What is more, we did not notice any change in performance.
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.
