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.”

We are absolutely satisfied with the implementation of the Open-E Cluster solution. Since the migration to the JovianDSS environment we have noted a 50% increase in performance for all the customers that we host. With this solution, we can see the storage growing and rest assured that in case we require more capacity, it will be just a matter of plugging in another storage chassis with an additional storage pool, not risking any downtime.
