GroupOne chose StorPool software-defined storage and replaced the expensive and not scalable SAN storage. The result – better scalability and 4 times faster storage for their cloud!
Prior to StorPool, GroupOne was using iSCISI based storage SANs as well as a hybrid storage solution by Tegile. The traditional SAN storage and solutions were not delivering a good price/performance ratio. GroupOne was looking for a scalable solution, with the ability to add more discs to the existing nodes and scale their existing infrastructure at a predictable cost.
“With StorPool we get an all-flash performance at a fraction of the cost. Moreover, we deployed it in multiple data centers while decreasing the total costs of ownership. Scalability at a reasonable price and great performance is what we were looking for and what we got!”, said Chris Wiegman, CEO of GroupOne.
StorPool – Powering GroupOne’s Cloud Infrastructure
GroupOne is using StorPool to ensure the performance and efficiency of its cloud infrastructure. Their cloud systems based on StorPool are located in two independent data centers. “Because of the integration of StorPool with OnApp, there is an overall reduced engineering time in dealing with storage and reduced storage complexity. Moreover the solution is significantly faster than a traditional storage.” said Chris Wiegman, CEO of GroupOne.
