To create an ultimate storage solution StorPool makes a shared storage pool out of standard drives placed in standard servers. It creates a single pool of resources and forms a virtual storage array, i.e. shared storage. The software-defined storage solution aggregates the performance and capacity of all drives into a single pool of storage distributed between all servers. StorPool doesn’t need specific servers and gives you the ability to scale to the PB range. It offers flexibility and reliability for large-scale deployments. You can seamlessly scale the whole cluster by simply adding more drives or servers. This will expand both capacity and performance. The expansion of volumes and file systems on top of StorPool happens online, without stopping the service itself. The updates for StorPool are also carried out online, without any interruption to your services, which simply continue running on top.
Some of StorPool’s advanced storage features are Thin Provisioning, Data Integrity, Snapshots and Clones, Quality of Service (QoS), Automatic Recovery, Zeroes Detection, Infiniband, Ethernet, and iSCSI Support, etc. See the full list here: https://storpool.com/features
