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.

Cons
In our country, Qatar, most of the industry isn't using too much HP. StoreVirtual doesn't move fast. It's not a popular product.It is a costly solution.The management aspect of the solution needs to be improved in order to make the product stronger.The initial setup could be simplified to make it easier for new users.The solution needs to ensure it is on par with the industry in terms of availability of features and various other options.One of the areas that need improvement is the consolidated management platform, to manage all of the nodes from one place and the licensing around that.I would like to have this solution easily integrate with VMware.Hardware and disk failures are happening frequently.

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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It costs less than $10,000 for one machine. If it costs more than 15% higher than this, then the customer may change to another solution.For our organization, I believe the cost is 16,000 Euros for a three-year license. It costs a bit more to do the maintenance on our servers as well. It's also on an HP ProLiant server and an organization will need to do the maintenance there also. I believe the price for that is around 2000 Euros a year.

Overview

HPE StoreVirtual storage ensures that organisations can optimise the benefits of server virtualisation with cost-effective high availability and disaster recovery. The iSCSI-based, scale-out storage platform is easy to manage and change – meeting ongoing business demands without creating IT bottlenecks or application downtime. Overcoming the cost and management limitations of traditional storage area networks (SANs), HPE StoreVirtual nodes use storage clustering to form a single pool of resources that enable organisations to buy only what they need today, scaling non-disruptively to meet requirements in the future.

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.
