Getting Off the Storage Refresh Treadmill With StorPool

StorPool’s storage model is distinct from traditional storage platforms as it offers storage as a service by using a massively parallel, multi-node system with shared-nothing architecture and multiple redundancy. StorPool’s platforms are designed to handle the extreme demands of modern applications as it is always on and requires no downtime for upgrades or expansion and provide data protection by triple-writing data across all storage devices within storage clusters. Additionally, it provides linear scalability of storage performance regardless of any expansion in overall capacity or peaks in performance demand by including lightweight standard servers to the existing cluster.
