StorPool

Storpool performs well on block level (and that is what we use it for). It is not yet supporting a kind of distributed filesystem or object storage - a filesystem layer needs to be built on top of it.

Pros

StorPool

  • One of the attractions of StorPool was that it is a very technology-focused company and has highly talented individuals. We are confident, not only that the product was the right product, because of the design and the architectural aspects, but also that the team behind it was very engaged and had the skills and ability to support a service provider. For a cloud provider, the storage is a system which cannot be taken down, even for maintenance, because it’s impossible to coordinate thousands of customers regarding downtime. With StorPool, however, we don’t have to worry about that.

Cons

StorPool

  • Support for VMware is with iSCSI at this point. This is fine, but we're waiting for the full VMware integration they are working on.

Alternatives Considered

StorPool

We looked at Ceph. Ceph is believed to be good for block storage, but when we ran tests on similar hardware with both Ceph and StorPool, StorPool outperformed Ceph by an order of magnitude. Our main usage scenario is similar to the heavy workload OLTP (online transaction processing) and syncing random writes is of critical importance to our company. On similar hardware, StorPool is 30-40 times faster compared to Ceph for example.

Return on Investment

StorPool

  • At this point we haven’t calculated it, as our case is complex, however, our research did find StorPool to be the solution with the best price/performance ratio.
