MARIETTA, GA, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2021 / — Open-E, an international data storage vendor, has announced today that it has released a new update of their flagship product Open-E JovianDSS. The Up29r1 version expands the number of devices compatible with the data storage solution and looks to provide customers with more flexibility in their hardware setups.
