We are happy to announce integration with OpenStack (Cinder). The OpenStack integration works as an add-on with Icehouse and Juno releases. It supports all mandatory Cinder features and provides fast, reliable and scalable block-level storage. We target to be included in upstream OpenStack in Kilo release.
“StorPool has re-engineered the entire storage stack from scratch. As a result we have created a fully-distributed, highly reliable, scalable and efficient storage solution. StorPool takes minimal resources from each server, enabling utilization of the same servers for both storage and compute. Furthermore StorPool offer advanced storage features like thin provisioning, snapshots & clones, tiering, caching, QoS (Quality of Service) among others” said Boyan Ivanov, co-founder and CEO at StorPool.
StorPool converts standard x86 severs into high-end storage system and serves as a replacement of specialized storage arrays (SANs) or other storage software that lack the desired performance or features. Compared to other “software-defined” storage solutions, StorPool provides very high performance (in terms of IOPS, MB/s), extreme efficiency (running storage and compute on the same nodes, practically), scalability and simplicity.
On the business side StorPool reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) significantly and comes with a flexible monthly pay-as-you-go (OpEx) pricing.

We will be glad to meet you and share more information at the OpenStack Summit in Paris. You are more than welcome to come by booth E14 and say “hi”!
