Open-E DSS V7 Active/Active iSCSI Failover Setup

All videos & webinars »


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.
