Open-E Certified Engineer Training

At Open-E, we are committed to supporting your teams and helping them grow by sharing our knowledge and experience through Open-E Certified Engineer Trainings. We develop the technical capital of your teams through explicit training aimed at building professional groups of specialists who offer not only best-in-class technical support but who can also boost excellence in the IT industry in general.

Most importantly, certification as an Open-E Certified Engineer verifies the ability to work efficiently with Open-E software, especially Backups, Replications, Snapshots, and Failover. Engineers with an OECE Certificate can easily implement the product in an IT environment and have a comprehensive knowledge base and experience with the software.

Training history

Training sessions have been regularly held in a number of cities across the US and Europe. So far, they have taken place in over 20 cities in the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, and Poland.

Training Agenda

During each OECE Training, we provide our trainees with an in-depth technical background of the technologies we use, live demos of our software, and plenty of practical, real-life exercises on the following topics:

  • Introduction to Open-E JovianDSS, its features, and Data Storage technologies,
  • Jump Start to software management,
  • Open-E On- & Off-site Data Protection,
  • iSCSI and Fibre Channel High Availability Cluster,
  • Monitoring JovianDSS with Check_MK,
  • Identifying problems and providing support,
  • And more!

After a comprehensive set of lectures, demos and practice, all participants can test themselves by taking an exam. Passing this exam means being granted an Open-E JovianDSS Certified Engineer title. Such certification proves that an engineer gained a comprehensive knowledge of solving first-level issues, and of course, can work efficiently with the Open-E software and implement the software in an IT environment.

On-site OECE Training

We encourage you to take part in live, on-site training sessions not only because it is an excellent opportunity to share the knowledge, meet with people who have similar interests, and spend some quality time learning together. Most importantly, running the OECE Training sessions in physical classrooms by engineers who are fans of the technology that we develop is simply a one-of-a-kind experience. Not even mentioning the pleasure of unpacking the welcome packs and later getting the certificate straight to your hands! The training lasts two days.

On-line OECE Training

Due to the pandemic and worldwide lockdowns, it’s been hard organizing any gatherings in person. In order to respond to the needs of OECE candidates from all around the world, we have started organizing the training sessions online, which turned out to be a huge success.


To be eligible to apply for the training, a candidate must be employed by companies registered as Open-E Partners, either an Authorized, Silver, Gold, or Platinum. Additionally, engineers attending the course are required to have:

  • Previous experience as a storage engineer
  • Good technical knowledge about server setups and storage environments
  • Basic knowledge about Open-E JovianDSS and/or previous software versions
