Need iSCSI choose

I`ve asked this in another communities, but I need many proffesional opinions
Dear All
Our company have about 60-70 computers, supported by openfiler as iSCSI SAN solution. Last week openfiler fatal error happened, so after hard recovery we`re thinking about migrating another iSCSI solution. I need to be sure in network security, backup solution, good performance and simplicity, comparatively to openfiler.
I need solutions, based on your professional experience.
Thanks for now

What kind of error?

What kind of error? It makes a difference whether it was the software that failed, or a hard drive. Also, how long did this openfiler system last before failing?

You may not want to simply toss out an entire system that was working pretty well, simply because a hard drive failed. Hard drives do do that after all. And the same goes for the system overall. If the system was working fine for 6+ months, then suddenly you had this error, and ever since then things have been humming along smoothly... It might just be a one off error that was a fluke occurrence.

System has worked for a year, but we faced problems with openfiler realy often - couldn`t connect to target, or even some LUNs lost, and then it failed. No, it wasn`t hardware.
Thank you

Hi Erick!
I`m not sure if you`ve got my message on other forum, so I`ll answear you here.
If you need to take a look at StarWind, Lefthand and Datacore - they are really good.
Good luck!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
