Thanks to the Active-Active functionality, overall cluster performance is improved since the read, write and replication traffic can be balanced on both nodes. Within just a few minutes, you will have up to several hundred gigabytes available on your network without much effort and no downtime.
For your convenience, we have radically simplified the iSCSI failover configuration and added helpful status icons in Open-E DSS V7. Now, administrators will be able to easily navigate the software and use Active-Active Automatic Failover for iSCSI.
Moreover, our research team noticed many missing functionalities when comparing Open-E’s DSS V7 Active-Active Automatic Failover for iSCSI with our competitors.
It turns out that other offerings can give you Active-Active solutions OR offer a reasonable price and configuration, but very few can deliver BOTH at the same time. And that’s precisely what our Open-E DSS V7 does. It provides superior performance, security, and scalability at a fraction of the cost of alternative storage solutions. The flexible design of Open-E DSS V7 enables organizations of all sizes to create effective iSCSI solutions that can adapt to and meet the simplest or the most complex storage needs.
Automatic Active-Active Failover functionality for iSCSI Volumes can only be purchased with Open-E DSS V7. Try it for yourself!
