Open-E DSS V7 SOHO delivers basic functionalities of Open-E DSS V7 for customers who plan to set up a NAS / SAN platform in their small or home office

Atlanta, Georgia; January 27, 2016: – Open-E, a leading developer of innovative data storage software used for building and managing centralized storage servers, released today a new storage solution for small office and home office use: Open-E DSS V7 SOHO.

Open-E Data Storage Software V7 SOHO (Small Office Home Office) is a free version of the proven Open-E DSS V7, and the successor of Open-E DSS V7 Lite. With the product, users can benefit from basic functionalities of a fully featured NAS / SAN software platform. But the software offers even more:

  • Free 4TB storage capacity
  • 4, 8, 16 or 32TB storage extensions for easy and affordable scalability
    (up to 36TB maximum storage size)
  • Hardware-independent, so customers can use the hardware of their choice
  • Single Ticket Basic Support available
  • Essential features of Open-E DSS V7

With 4TB manageable storage space, the capacity of Open-E DSS V7 SOHO is doubled, compared to the previous Lite version. The software can be conveniently extended by purchasing affordable storage extensions of 4, 8, 16 or 32TB. With its scale-out architecture it can be used with a maximum size of 36TB. 

What is more, users will not be stuck with specific hardware, as is the case with many integrated solutions for small / home office use where vendors are combining their software with lower-quality hardware to keep a competitive price. “With Open-E DSS V7 SOHO, users are completely free to decide which hardware they want to buy. Due to the high compatibility of our product almost anything is possible,” said Krzysztof Franek, CEO and president of Open-E.

To ensure quick help for end-users, Open-E also introduced an affordable support option for the product. Thanks to the special Single Case Basic Support, customers will receive e-mail assistance for technical problems with Open-E DSS V7 SOHO. Additionally, the company offers many free resources for technical support such as a forum, knowledgebase and many other free documents and videos on their website.

Users who are currently using Open-E DSS V7 2TB Lite can upgrade to Open-E DSS V7 4TB SOHO by downloading the latest version from the Open-E website and follow the instructions.
