The Netherlands-based cloud and managed IT services provider Hosted.nl transformed its hosting and cloud infrastructure with high-performance and fully managed storage clusters running on StorPool and VMware. As a large-scale cloud provider, Hosted.nl is running mixed workloads and has a complex infrastructure. They were searching for a new-age, reliable, and scalable storage solution, which can work smoothly with their sophisticated IT stack. The company is running different workloads – from shared web hosting, hosted desktops, and e-mail hosting (Exchange) to private and hybrid clouds on VMware, Hyper-V, KVM, Xen. This increases the complexity of their setup and made them look for an easy to implement and manage storage solution.
StorPool has fully replaced legacy DELL and EMC storage, which Hosted.nl was using previously. Now the cloud provider is running multiple high-performance and scalable NVMe and hybrid clusters on StorPool. The end result is a powerful storage system, without a need to worry about its reliability, performance, or the security of the data stored.
“We do not need to worry about maintaining the storage platform itself as it just works. With StorPool we experience extremely low response times, very high skill, and knowledge from both the tech and the business teams. Not only performance-wise StorPool outperforms all the other storage platforms we have used, but also in scalability, support, and redundancy. Also, they are very kind people in real life and that is one unique selling point.”, shared Erik Jan Visscher, Director and Founding Partner of Hosted.nl.
