Overall Satisfaction with StorPool

The StorPool Storage solution is tightly integrated with our OpenStack Cloud for Application Performance benchmarking. It's used across several application developments and performance testing which necessitates large IO throughput.
  • Distributed Storage array with very high throughput in terms of reading & write operations.
  • Horizontal scaling without much complexity of management.
  • Easily integrate with OpenStack cloud.
  • Doesn't depend on proprietary hardware, integrates with commodity hardware.
  • Integration between SAN storage and StorPool.
  • The total cost of ownership.
  • Supporting fibre channel uplink.
  • Higher Performance: Works much closer to the hardware, so it is much closer to the raw IO speeds of the underlying hardware.
  • Scalability & Flexibility: A cluster is a flat hierarchy of drives and new drives can be added or removed at any time.
  • Scale-out, not Scale-Up - The solution is fundamentally about scaling by adding more drives or nodes rather than scaling up (adding capacity by replacing a storage box with a larger storage box). can grow without interruption and in small steps - one hard drive, one server, and one network interface at a time.
  • Stability of environment.
  • Ease of implementation.
  • Ease of doing business transactions with StorPool.
The flexibility to combine

Hardware with High Density Intel Sockets,

GBPS ETHERNET using White label Switch,

Root Input Output Virtualization (SRIOV) technology, integration with Hypervisors like OpenStack cloud, horizontal scaling, high throughput in disk IOPS.
