Supports all the latest hardware, including the latest multiple CPU's which ensures forward compatibility

Supports Popular Backup Software
Unlike most of the competitors, Open-E includes backup-agents to support the world's most popular backup applications like Backup Exec®, Retrospect®, BrightStor® - so you can leverage your existing investment and expertise

Supports Appliance API
To further ensure compatibility, Open-E has an open storage API to communicate between different software programs and detached appliances which ensures easy third-party integration for maximum compatibility

Easiest to Manage

Initial Configurations Wizard
As soon as Open-E starts, the Setup Wizard helps you with all the network and system settings - you get up fast, with built-in help, and can see immediate results

Task and Schedule Manager
Tasks can be automatically scheduled for data, volume replication and snapshots - making it easy to setup, so you can concentrate on other tasks

Automated Update and Rollback of OS
The automated update and rollback makes it easy to update and get the latest features and is also simple to rollback if there is an issue that needs to be resolved first - reducing system downtime

Monitoring & E-mail Notification
Automatically notifies the system administrator via e-mail when there are RAID or HDD problems, making it easy to troubleshoot and quickly fix problems

Most Stable

Linux Operating System
Open-E runs on a Linux Platform because of its proven stability, unlike others which are less stable or which have limited and diminishing support for new hardware

Journaling Support
The system tracks and logs changes prior to affecting the main file system, making the file system more reliable

Price-Performance Leader

Independent OS
Open-E uses its own independent OS and is device independent which does not require the expense of another copy of Windows and allows you to use more hardware options (legacy or modern)

Continuous Data Protection
Provides continuous backup/replication of data - far superior to 24 hour snapshot backups (lose approx. 17 e-mails in between backups, versus up to 10,000 on an Exchange e-mail system) - also much quicker to restore (20 minutes vs. 3-5 hour tape backup). If available, usually an expensive option for other storage software

High-Availability over 2 Nodes
Open-E can recognize hardware/software failure and immediately re-starts the application on another system without requiring admin intervention or downtime which further reduces downtime at no extra cost
