Supercharge VMware Virtual Environments with Next-Gen Data Storage

Achieve high performance, reliability, and scalability in virtual machines with one single storage system.

Ultra-Fast, Reliable, and Scalable Block Storage as a Service for VMware Environments

VMware is one of the most widely used proprietary virtualization platforms for the enterprise, supporting on-premises and cloud deployments, and providing management of VMs and containers, high availability, network management, and vSAN software-defined storage. As more applications and mission critical workloads have been moved to virtualized infrastructures, IT teams have found that their storage solutions are failing to keep up with demands of performance, reliability, scalability, and flexibility resulting in multiple storage solutions to meet the wide range of workload requirements. 

With StorPool, VMware customers can have a single storage solution for the entire range of storage performance and resilience needs. StorPool built their unique parallel iSCSI technology specifically for the VMware environment, bringing better reliability and higher performance for virtual machines connected to StorPool volumes. While StorPool features like thin provisioning, efficient snapshots, and our unique new Erasure Coding solve efficiency and capacity issues that have become especially significant in virtualized environments.

Software Defined Storage Built for Modern IT

With a unique parallel iSCSI technology, thin provisioning, efficient snapshots, and a unique approach to Erasure Coding, StorPool delivers simplicity and results for VMware customers:

Application Acceleration with storage latency under 200µ (0.2 milliseconds) and up to 113 million IOPS per single system
Gain Flexibility and Scalability – Instantly add another server or more drives, easily growing the storage cluster capacity and performance.
Fully Managed Dedicated StorPool Experts – StorPool experts design, deploy, tune, monitor, and maintain your storage implementation
Unmatched Reliability – StorPool’s unique distributed, parallel, multi-controller system with no single points of failure is delivering proven 99.999% (Five 9s!) uptime with 15 years MTBF.
Have an Always-On Environment – Non-disruptively deploy soſtware updates, patches and hardware swap-outs so that IT can focus on real business at hand.
Breakthrough TCO – Pay-as-you-go and pay-per-use licensing with no add-ons for maximum transparency, while delivering a Total Cost of Ownership up to 3 times cheaper.

“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.”, 

Kevin Schouwenaar, Technology Director, Hosted.nl

The VMware plus StorPool Advantage

IT organizations use VMware to  run everything from microservices in containers to high-end databases inside virtual machines. StorPool provides a single storage solution for the entire range of storage performance and resilience needs. With millions of IOPS and sub 100 microsecond latencies, StorPool delivers the performance for critical applications, seamlessly manages the data storage, and optimizes data center costs for the business needs. 

The VMware high availability features like vMotion and automated failover require the kind of always-on storage reliability that StorPool is proven to provide. StorPool’s measured availability for current customers is 99.999% (five 9s), ensuring that storage will never be the weak link in your application availability. 

StorPool built their unique parallel iSCSI technology specifically for the VMware environment, bringing better reliability and higher performance for virtual machines connected to StorPool volumes. While StorPool features like thin provisioning, efficient snapshots, and our unique new Erasure Coding solve efficiency and capacity issues that have become especially significant in virtualized environments.

StorPool Storage Integration with VMware

StorPool developed a parallel iSCSI target especially for VMware environments. By extending the iSCSI protocol to support multiple iSCSI sessions in a cluster, StorPool aids availability and scalability, and boosts performance.

StorPool also offloads VMware compute servers by performing storage primitives like ATS, UNMAP, and Write Same, improving performance of applications and allowing more VMs per physical server.

High capacity efficiency is provided through thin provisioning, zero’s detection, efficient snapshots, and erasure coding. StorPool’s unique implementation of Erasure Coding delivers massive savings on real-world capacity compared to traditional RAID, with almost zero performance impact.

“We’re very excited to have selected StorPool as the storage foundation for our cloud automation platform. From initial engagement to go-live the team at StorPool has been there every step of the way resulting in a very successful implementation.”

CHRIS WIEGMAN, CEO at GroupOne, IT for Everyone (USA)

Is a VMware Alternative in Your Future?

While VMware might have been a good fit for you in the past, conditions change and maybe you’re looking for VMware alternatives right now. We’ve helped many organizations migrate from VMware to Linux KVM. Read our step-by-step guide below to learn how easy it can be. And to control all those KVM virtual machines, StorPool is tightly integrated with a range of cloud management platforms such as CloudStackProxmoxOpenStackKubernetes, and OpenNebula.
