Open-E DSS V7 End of Life

Effective November 1st, 2024


We are writing to inform you about an important announcement regarding the future of Open-E DSS V7. After more than a decade of providing reliable and secure data storage solutions, we have decided to discontinue Open-E DSS V7 and focus on our ZFS-based Open-E JovianDSS product, which offers superior performance, reliability, and scalability.


This means that Open-E DSS V7 will reach its end of life (EOL) on November 1st, 2024. After this date, the product's licenses will not be available for purchase anymore, and Open-E will stop providing software updates or support for this product.
