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.

Cons
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.
