Software-defined storage for business automation software developer

Due to its rapid growth, ReadSoft, a global provider of applications for automating business processes, required a storage solution with higher performance, exceptionally scalable, easy to set up, and highly secure. Additionally any existing single points of failure were to be avoided. Satisfied with the existing Open-E storage, ReadSoft decided to upgrade to software-defined Open-E JovianDSS which is based on ZFS.

Open-E DSS V7 Active/Active iSCSI Failover Setup

All videos & webinars »

quote

The active-active iSCSI replication in Open-E DSS V7 provides load-balancing of storage, redundancy against hardware failure, and the ability to install hardware and OS updates without VM downtime which were the strongest arguments for our decision. Additionally, our Exchange performance issues have completely disappeared. Migrating from ESX to Hyper-V means that both failover clustering and live migration are supported without a large investment in licenses, providing load balancing, redundancy against hardware failure, and the ability to install hardware and OS updates without VM downtime. With MPIO on Open-E DSS V7 and NIC bonding with MPIO on Hyper-V, even the failure of a NIC causes no downtime. An actual hardware failure demonstrated that the project goal of resilience had been achieved.
