StorPool Storage Now Integrated with OpenStack (Cinder)

High-performance block storage software for OpenStack Clouds.

Sofia, Bulgaria, November 27, 2014 --( StorPool Storage, a leading vendor of distributed storage software, announced integration with OpenStack (Cinder). The integration works as an add-on with Icehouse and Juno releases. It supports all mandatory Cinder features and provides fast, reliable and scalable block-level storage. The company targets to be included in upstream OpenStack in Kilo release.

"StorPool has re-engineered the entire storage stack from scratch. As a result we have created a fully-distributed, highly reliable, scalable and efficient storage solution. StorPool takes minimal resources from each server, enabling utilization of the same servers for both storage and compute. Furthermore StorPool offer advanced storage features like thin provisioning, snapshots & clones, tiering, caching, QoS (Quality of Service) among others," said Boyan Ivanov, co-founder and CEO at StorPool.

StorPool converts standard x86 severs into high-end storage system and serves as a replacement of specialized storage arrays (SANs) or other storage software that lack the desired performance or features. Compared to other "software-defined" storage solutions, StorPool provides very high performance (in terms of IOPS, MB/s), extreme efficiency (running storage and compute on the same nodes, practically), scalability and simplicity.

On the business side StorPool reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) significantly and comes with a flexible pricing: both pay-as-you-go (OpEx) and perpetual (CapEx) licensing is available.
