A well-proven, automated management tool in all dynamic provisioning, auto-tiering, and parallel I/O
It is a well-proven, automated management tool in all dynamic provisioning, auto-tiering, great performance, parallel I/O, cache speed mechanism, etc.
Oracle OLTP benchmark to test how it improves the performance while using flash drive NVMP.
The team behind it was very engaged and had the skills and ability to support a service provider.
The two 10GE networks provide redundancy and increased performance as they serve as two separate networks doubling the throughput and doing multipathing and load balancing. We now have a high performance shared storage system which enables us to run on private cloud. Our previous system used bare-metal hardware, which provided high performance but inflexible management. Now we have best of both worlds, SSD-class performance with flexibility of a private cloud system.
With StorPool we were able to build live failover on top of our LXC infrastructure. This allows us both to live-migrate containers between compute nodes without any downtime and, in case of an entire node suffering any type of failure, we can bring all containers back online within a minute on a spare compute node.
The speed of the storage solution also allows us to provide service to applications that are very I/O intensive.
Performance, redundancy, scalability and cost-effectiveness. StorPool delivers superbly in all of these areas.
Unified storage (all block, objects, and files) should be in a single storage pool with unified storage concepts, hence providing the user with whatever they want.
Monitoring and statistics UI is a bit clumsy.
At times we need to check the disks and do some minor operations. A friendlier user interface would be useful in such cases.
It would be good if, with next releases, StorPool provide a better GUI for monitoring and statistics. This would make our experience even better and complete.
he only place we feel they could improve is the time it takes to bring new features to production.
Live and historical performance statistics would be useful, though my understanding is that this is on the way in a future release.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
StorPool software is cost-effective and gives us a pricing advantage over our competitors.
StorPool's pricing and licensing model is very transparent. As always, one has to due his due diligence when choosing a product like distributed storage solutions.
It provides us with a significant reduction in TCO due to their pay-as-you-grow licensing model, which means we don’t have to pay upfront for hardware and licensing for capacity thStorPoolat we don’t yet need to use.

|Overview||DataCore™ SANsymphony™ enterprise-class Software-defined Storage (SDS) platform provides a high-performance, highly available and agile storage infrastructure with the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).|
StorPool is intelligent storage software that runs on standard servers and builds scalable, high-performance storage system out of these servers (software-defined storage). It focuses on the block-level storage and excels at it. It is incredibly flexible and can be deployed in both converged setups (on compute nodes, alongside VMs and applications) or on separate storage nodes.
StorPool has advanced fully-distributed architecture and is arguably the fastest and most efficient block-storage software on the market today. It is the best storage system when building a cloud.
