New-age IaaS for Silver Lining Systems with Hystax and StorPool
Silver Lining Systems was building a new-age infrastructure for their SLS IaaS cloud. They migrated all their workloads from a VMware with Ceph storage stack to a new hyper converged setup with StorPool, Hyper-V and OpenStack.
Thanks to StorPool and Hystax, Silver Lining Systems managed to do a smooth transition to the new-age IaaS. They built a high-performance and highly available cloud to delight their clients.
Demand for a powerful storage solution
Silver Lining Systems needed a powerful, yet cost-effective storage solution, which both supports Hyper-V and has an OpenStack integration. The company was already using Ceph, but Ceph was slow and was not supporting its Hyper-V requirements. They needed a storage solution, which is faster, more scalable, and reliable.
Exceptional performance, availability and reliability with StorPool
SLS built a hyperconverged setup with StorPool. Their OpenStack cloud is using Microsoft Hyper-V as a hypervisor. The combination of OpenStack and StorPool provides not only exceptional performance but also excellent reliability and availability of the service.
The new storage delivers much higher performance than Ceph for the same size of hardware equipment. At the same time, StorPool has a significantly lower latency.
‘StorPool’s service and support gives us much more confidence to run production customer workloads. Although we still use Ceph, we offer StorPool as a premium storage tier for our customers. Silver Lining Systems is very pleased to partner with Hystax since our two companies share the common goal of providing cost-effective solutions to our customers through automation. Leveraging Hystax technologies, we’ve been able to eliminate most of the manual tasks to de-risk and accelerate customer migrations to our cloud infrastructure (months to weeks) while achieving higher customer satisfaction, reduction in migration
costs and earlier revenue capture.’
