virtion GmbH, a well-known and trusted German managed services provider, chose StorPool in preference to CEPH and LizardFS.
Before StorPool, the service provider was using a NFS based solution. Unfortunately it was not scalable enough. Virton had a very strict set of criteria when choosing a replacement of the existing storage solution. They also did a comparison of the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and benefits, which can be delivered by StorPool, CEPH and LizardFS.
However the best price/performance ratio was delivered by StorPool. According to Michael Kutzner, CEO at virtion GmbH, StorPool was more than 50% better than the second option!
The Storage Challenge
Virtion needed a solution which could enable them to provide cost efficient block storage in their virtualization layers. Their old setups lacked performance and flexibility.
Virtion was searching for a solution, which can be also implemented without any impact on their production environment.
virtion GmbH chose StorPool not just because of the better price/performance ratio, but also because StorPool manged to offer them smooth implementation without an impact on their production environment.
“With flexibility and professionalism the team helped us to roll out StorPool in a very short time, even though we had special demands.
The support is very fast and competent!”, said Michael Kutzner, CEO at virtion GmbH.
