Great service and support with a constant addition of new features

Pros and Cons

  • "Creating snapshots within seconds for big disks has helped our different migration projects since it allows us to perform them in a short period of time."
  • "I have personally met with multiple Storpool engineers and spoke about different options and features. There are too many features that we don't know or use yet. My recommendation would be to promote the new features and give users different examples of how they can be used and how we can benefit from them."

What is our primary use case?

We are a hosting provider and use Storpool as our main storage solution. Our different platforms connect to the same storage system. We have connected it with OnApp, OpenNebula and Jelastic and have performed different integrations.

We currently have about five different Storpool clusters for our different zones which are shared within our multiple platforms. The integration has been seamless. Our clusters are spread in 2 data centers and allows us to offer different solutions to our customers with our platforms. 

How has it helped my organization?

Our previous storage system constantly caused us issues that resulted in losing customers due to outages. We would get at least 1 read-only scenario every week which may cause data corruption to our customers.

Storpool replaced our old storage system. It is extremely fast and reliable, which has translated to exceptional performance for our customers. This has helped to reduce the outages or impact caused by the storage solution.

Our support team can focus on fixing real customer issues instead of dealing with issues caused by the storage system.

What is most valuable?

The ability to transfer from one Storpool unit to another Storpool has been great. 

Creating snapshots within seconds for big disks has helped our different migration projects since it allows us to perform them in a short period of time. We are now evaluating disaster recovery strategies using Storpool units.

Cloning has been a great tool to create new servers within a few minutes. The integration with Open Nebula has been amazing and allows us to leverage our offerings and provide more options to our customers. 

What needs improvement?

As of now, the product has been working really well for us. They keep updating and launching new features. 

Their support has been great and have always been available.

I have personally met with multiple Storpool engineers and spoke about different options and features. There are too many features that we don't know or use yet. My recommendation would be to promote the new features and give users different examples of how they can be used and how we can benefit from them. This is a great product.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Storpool for five or more years.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use a different solution and we switched as it was not reliable.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You get what you pay for. Storpool would not be the cheapest option, however, what you get are great service and great support. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was not actively involved in the evaluation part. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
