SOFIA, Bulgaria – August 8, 2023 – StorPool Storage today announced its deep integration with Proxmox Virtual Environment (VE). This allows IT teams using Proxmox VE to leverage a best-in-class block-storage data platform, running on standard servers available as a fully managed storage-as-a-service (STaaS) bundle. So now, any company utilizing Proxmox can achieve end-to-end automation allowing its IT teams to focus on strategic projects rather than managing individual components.
Proxmox VE is a complete, open-source server management platform for enterprise virtualization. It tightly integrates the KVM hypervisor and Linux Containers (LXC), software-defined storage and networking functionality on a single platform. StorPool’s integration with Proxmox delivers all the benefits of a latest generation data storage software platform to Proxmox users – providing millions of IOPS for even the most demanding applications, high-availability spanning racks and allowing administrators to do their work way more efficiently – from creating and starting virtual machines in seconds; resizing VMs and their virtual disks online; migrating VMs from server to server or from one performance tier to another tier online; creating snapshots, clones and templates in split second and enabling Quality of Service (QoS) controls per volume – all through an API or without leaving the Proxmox management GUI.
“StorPool sets the standard for reliability, blazing performance, and truly extraordinary support,” stated Johan Kooijman, CEO at Cloud.nl. “While Proxmox is a really configurable, stable and well supported cloud management system we wanted to keep using the outstanding StorPool storage platform. StorPool offered us not only a deep integration between Proxmox and the storage system, but also a clear, easy and very well supported migration path to Proxmox from our previous solution. The combination of these two solutions LITERALLY helps our crew sleep better at night.”
StorPool Storage with Proxmox VE offers several advantages for virtual environments. With the addition of StorPool Storage, an ultra-fast and effortless block storage platform, Proxmox users can:
- Simplify Operations – Reduce the time required for operational tasks, which results in faster introduction of new services and innovation, and easier employee onboarding and training.
