High-performance OpenStack storage for building Powerful Clouds

Achieve simple deployment and maximum reliability for your OpenStack software-defined cloud


StorPool is the leading software-defined storage vendor for highly available OpenStack block storage


Creating a low-latency OpenStack storage platform that will meet the needs of your projects is now an easy task. With StorPool for OpenStack storage, cloud builders achieve speed and reliability for their block storage.

StorPool has become one of the main choices when it comes to building effective and affordable storage for large-scale OpenStack deployments. The powerful combination of StorPool+OpenStack has helped many cloud builders, MSPs, telcos, and financial organizations design public and private clouds that address the challenges of building a modern IT infrastructure.

StorPool is a high ROI OpenStack storage solution. It provides an unbeatable Total Costs of Ownership (TCO), $/GB usable and $/IOPS metrics. StorPool’s data storage platform delivers increased reliability compared to other storage solutions, due to its superior architecture and native integration with OpenStack.

The innovative software-defined OpenStack storage from StorPool is a fully-distributed solution with no single point of failure. It builds an extremely reliable storage system out of standard hardware, keeping costs low. StorPool is natively integrated with OpenStack and creates the perfect platform for building a fast, reliable, and scalable OpenStack cloud storage.

Simple. Flexible. Natively integrated with OpenStack.


StorPool has a native integration with OpenStack block storage (Cinder) and compute (Nova) components.

The Cinder driver allows any OpenStack component to create, remove, and extend user volumes, as well as copy data from Glance images to them and vice versa. The driver allows control over a volume’s replication count, placement strategy, I/O limits, and other capabilities of the StorPool storage system.

The Nova driver allows StorPool-backed Cinder volumes to be used by virtual machine instances. With Nova’s “root disk on a new volume created from a snapshot” functionality it is very easy to create one or more VM instances from the same OS template.
