Satisfied customers are our first priority - read about their positive experiences with our products.
The support that the team at Open-E provides is far superior to that of just about any other company in the IT industry. Regardless if they are supporting their product or another vendor’s issue, these guys know what they are doing and are always great to work with. There are a lot of major IT players in the industry that could learn a thing or two from the Open-E approach to quality customer service.
Open-E DSS V6 is wonderful! It is very easy to install and since it is able to be installed on a USB stick, I was able to allocate the disks I would have used for OS to actual storage space! The interface is intuitive and can easily be setup by a novice user. I have pushed the software, and can honestly say that it can support several iSCSI connections simultaneously without crashing. I am using and would definitely recommend Open-E DSS V6 as a production capable iSCSI target OS.
Our customers have been running Open-E software for several years and we never had to take care of any failures or complaints. The simplicity of the system implementation, which is rich on features, is excellent. In our company, servers are running on Open-E DSS V7 as well as our main storage and backup platform, and we have always been satisfied. We’re never worried about data safety. As a partner, Open-E is very flexible and dedicated. You can safely run your project with their support – from inception to maintenance.
We have been very satisfied with Open-E DSS V7 for many years but after our company and our requirements for R&D were growing faster and faster, we were looking for ways to increase our performance with proven products and relationships. Finally, Open-E released their new software JovianDSS with ZFS on Linux, and the same Kernel as in Open-E DSS V7. With this, we were able to achieve non-performance degradation compression that allows us to store 60 to 80% more on each SAN. Since 90% of requests are running from the cache we achieved four times faster performance than with the old storage systems.
Der Forschungsbereich der Bundeswehr für Wasserschall und Geophysik (FWG) nutzt seid mehr als 10 Jahren im Storage Bereich erfolgreich zu 90% Open-E Systeme. Als zivile Forschungseinrichtung im Rüstungsbereich der Bundeswehr haben wir mit Open-E einen Storage-Partner gefunden, der unsere speziellen Bedürfnisse z.B. bei Seeversuchen im Einsatz mit unserem Forschungsschiff 'WFS Planet' kosteneffizient und zuverlässig abbilden kann. In diesen Einsätzen haben wir insbesondere die Flexibilität und Stabilität der Open-E NAS Server schätzen gelernt.
"Open-E DSS V7 ist ein großartiges Produkt, meiner Meinung nach eine der besten SAN-Lösungen auf dem Markt. Ich bin besonders von der Stabilität der Software überzeugt - das Active-Active Failover Feature hat uns schon einige Male gerettet. Bei einer Änderung der RAID-Konfiguration (welche laut Hersteller online durchgeführt werden kann) ist unser primärer SAN-Server abgestürzt. Unser Hyper-V Cluster hat davon nichts zu spüren bekommen, da das Failover perfekt funktioniert hat. Wir haben durch dieses Feature außerdem einen erheblichen Performance-Vorteil und bei Wartungsarbeiten weniger Down-Time. Auch die Programmoberfläche ist sehr intuitiv und gut durchdacht. Zudem sind die angebotenen Webinare eine große Hilfe - gute Webinare in deutscher Sprache sind selten."
"As an Open-E Partner, I took part in one of Open-E's Certified Engineer Trainings. It has been a great experience for me - very, very interesting! Open-E DSS V7 is a really great product from my point of view (and not only mine) but now I know the people behind this project are great as well, it is an important added value for me."
"We use Open-E DSS V7 as our main storage. We never had any problems in 3 years now. In my opinion it is a very fast and reliable storage solution. Thanks to the Open-E support team for their help when we increased our volume and upgraded from version 6 to 7."
"We have been running Open-E software for two years now as an MPIO’d ISCSI SAN without a single issue. Installation / configuration was relatively painless, there is a multitude of configuration options and the software seems very stable. Open-E software is a cost-effective and reliable storage solution."
"We use Open-E DSS V7 for storing our mission critical backups and as a collaborating platform for mixed clients (OSx, Windows and Linux). What I really like about Open-E is the fact that it's hardware independent and a set and forget appliance. In the near future we will start using multiple Open-E appliances for replicating data over multiple branch offices."
