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?

When we first tested StorPool, we were impressed by the performance and the option to expand our storage almost without limit. In the beginning, we used several servers and expanded storage when needed. Doing so, we gave our clients stability... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We started our platform with ordinary storage solutions, but they led us to many problems that took a lot of time to debug and resolve. Since implementing StorPool we have not had any downtime. We have high-performance storage that we can... more»

What needs improvement?

At times we need to check the disks and do some minor operations. A friendlier user interface would be useful in such cases.

What is most valuable?

Built-in redundancy for both storage nodes and network gives us peace of mind in case of a hardware failure, be it a storage node or a network component. The speed of the storage solution also allows us to provide service to applications that... more»

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

We have generally been happy with StorPool's product. As previously mentioned we haven't had any issues since deploying their solution. The only place we feel they could improve is the time it takes to bring new features to production.

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»

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.

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

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.

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.
