Open-E DSS V7 Active/Active iSCSI Failover Setup

All videos & webinars »


Midrex is a Steel, Coal and Mining Industry company so capacity and replication is our main concerns. I have experienced many different systems in the market to provide iSCSI Targets to our systems and by the reviews and contacting Open-E to inquire about DSS we made the decision to go with DSS. We grow a 1TB minimally every 3 months using SAS controllers for our capacity needs so this requirement to expand is a must. The DSS allows this with its Physical Volume expansion feature allowing us to add to our Volume Groups with ease. Now came the real test to provide Volume Replication, this was just as simple as the expansion using the two DSS servers. We tested the failover to our DSS destination server and without a problem the data was intact. Many tests where compiled over the months in search for a product to perform these simple tasks and the Open-E DSS handle very well.
