What is most valuable?

Performance, redundancy, scalability and cost-effectiveness. StorPool delivers superbly in all of these areas - something no other product we have either tested or deployed has been able to do consistently.

How has it helped my organization?

Since deploying StorPool, we have experienced no unplanned outages or performance issues. Our technical and engineering teams no longer live in a permanent state of high alert due to storage outages or throughput degradation due to ‘hot... more»

What needs improvement?

Live and historical performance statistics would be useful, though my understanding is that this is on the way in a future release. This could likely be combined with general health monitoring via some sort of dashboard.

What is most valuable?

StorPool is a software-only solution with practically unlimited expansion capabilities. Its performance is very high. We were able to replace our SSD-only local storage systems without any performance penalty. Its price/performance is very high!

How has it helped my organization?

As the number of servers grew, management and lack of flexibility became a problem. Our initial experiments with private clouds were promising but we needed a shared storage system. We now have a high-performance shared storage system which... more»

What needs improvement?

Although controlling the system from console has lots of capabilities, an interface to view the performance of the StorPool System and control some cases is a need. StorPool has no native support of VMware & Hyper-V yet. StorPool does it... more»

What is most valuable?

CloudSigma has 10 locations around the world and a number of new locations in the pipeline, which makes it more complex. We were looking for flexibility in the deployment model allowing us to tailor the storage solution to the specific... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using StorPool we had about 15% increase in our gross margin and that is huge for a service provider. At the same time we increased the performance significantly. That’s really a major change.

What needs improvement?

We have increased our gross margin, we’ve increased the performance, we’ve reduced the customer churn!

StorPool’s team has deep understanding about technology and help us: - Tune our system or consult for further vHost.vn growth - Coach our System Engineering to higher level with more information about tech in this industry.

How has it helped my organization?

In the past, if the server had problems, our system administrators had to go to the datacenter to fix and repair the hardware, the downtime increased even more. Nowadays, the whole sys admin team can work remotely and just start VPS on... more»

What needs improvement?

1. Decreased TCO 2. Scalability 3. Increased revenue 4. Time saving 5. Downtime reduction 6. Save more time and concentrate on other tasks.

What is most valuable?

Managing StorPool is much simpler than our previous storage system, especially having a CLI option which our previous storage system was lacking.

How has it helped my organization?

Due to the reliability of StorPool and the high level of support by StorPool staff, we expect to spend less system admin time to run and operate the solution. This will allow our technical staff to focus on other duties and projects.

What needs improvement?

In terms of areas for improvements, honestly there is nothing we dislike. We have provided feedback on some desired features in the future but we like the system just as it is.

What is StorPool?

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.
