The advantages of building a Private Cloud with StorPool Storage

  • High Availability and Reliability

    StorPool uses a replication mechanism that stores copies of the data on different physical servers. This protects you against drive, server, or other hardware components failure. In case of a failure we use another copy of the data, located on an unaffected server and none of your data is lost or even temporarily unavailable.

  • High Performance

    Your StorPool storage will combine the IOPS performance of all drives in the cluster and optimize drive access patterns to provide low latency and to handle storage usage bursts. The load is distributed equally between all servers.

  • Commodity Hardware usage

    StorPool supports drives and servers in a vendor-agnostic manner, allowing you to avoid vendor lock-in. This allows the use of inexpensive commodity hardware, while preserving reliability and performance requirements. You can mix drives and servers of various types and make in a StorPool cluster.

  • Scale-out System

    With StorPool your storage will scale seamlessly by IOPS, storage capacity and bandwidth. It can grow online, without interruption and in small steps – one drive, one server and one network interface at a time. Our systems start at 10 TB usable and can grow online in the PB range.

  • The only fully managed storage solution

    StorPool is a fully managed solution – we manage the storage system, so that you can focus on your core business. StorPool comes with a reliable dedicated support: remote installation and initial configuration by StorPool’s specialists; 24x7x365 enterprise-grade support with SLA; software updates, proactive monitoring. We are always there to make sure your cloud is up and running.

  • Safest storage system for your data

    StorPool has the most extensive end-to-end data integrity feature on the market. We calculate a checksum right at the client and we store it with the data. This is better protection compared to other systems (e.g. storage RAID).

  • No single points of failure

    StorPool is highly available, due to its fully distributed architecture and no single points of failure. Every component is redundant. We ensure highest amount of up-time possible, by providing triple replication, so that your service is always up and running.

  • High resource utilization (Efficiency)

    The StorPool system is designed to deliver extremely resource efficient storage for your cloud. It saves on compute, networking and storage hardware, in order to deliver the best price/performance ratio, on a total solution cost basis.

Supported Platforms







At StorPool we know that each enterprise has a different needs and use different technologies. StorPool storage supports the most common platforms and cloud orchestration systems in the domain.
StorPool storage is compatible with KVM, Citrix Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware, libvirt, Docker / containers, etc. Our customers can manage their private clouds with OpenStack, CloudStack, OpenNebula, OnApp, Proxmox and custom cloud orchestration systems.
Customers running VMware & Microsoft Hyper-V virtualization enjoy the benefits of blazing fast, scale-out and highly available cloud infrastructure. In these stacks we use the iSCSI protocol to connect the storage system to the VMware & Hyper-V hypervisors, with a couple of improvements adding high-availability and extra scalability to the iSCSI sessions.
