Security services provider uses Open-E DSS V7 Active-Active iSCSI Failover Storage Cluster and VMware HA

The NWÜ GmbH & Co. KG is a company that offers an efficient, cross-industry safe solution for connecting alarm and IoT technology and which operates a VDS 3138-certified emergency call and service center (NSL). Due to the complex portfolio of services and thus gathering enormous amounts of data, NWÜ Security required a failure-resistant, highly available and secure data storage solution. The main challenge to be overcome by the security provider was the responsiveness of the control center, which mainly provides mission-critical security and service. Being satisfied with Open-E software products they have decided to transfer to Open-E DSS V7.

Video Surveillance Solution with flexibility and vast growth

Video Surveillance data is exploding with high value needs for the content, and access for evidence and proof is more critical than ever. For this reason, Private Clouds that involve on-site data content for additional security are trending now faster than ever. For the Texas Police Departments time and storage demands are vital needs for their surveillance security camera data. They required quality hardware with a software storage operating system to provide SMB/CIFs, and import the Users and Groups from their Microsoft ADS server. They neither had time for extensive training on the products nor to read an extensive manual. Basically they needed to drop in place and go. For the Texas Police Departments, video surveillance products must have high quality and flexibility to fulfill the ever changing needs for security on all levels and types of video equipment.

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.
