Sofia, Bulgaria–(BUSINESS WIRE)–StorPool Storage and the Apache CloudStack Community today released a solution brief that helps cloud and storage architects, consultants, administrators, and practitioners design and deploy reliable, fast, easy-to-manage, and cost-effective cloud infrastructures based on Apache CloudStack working with KVM hosts and StorPool storage.
Apache CloudStack is the leading open source virtualization management platform used by some of the world’s largest public and private clouds. It is a multi-hypervisor, multi-tenant, high-availability infrastructure-as-a-service cloud management platform. With Apache CloudStack and StorPool Storage, MSPs, cloud providers, enterprises, and SaaS providers can deploy a highly automated cloud that delivers the application performance and reliability their users need while easily responding to changing needs. long-term users.
The solution brief outlines a high-level architecture and the advantages and disadvantages of the most popular deployment models for modern cloud deployments. Although every cloud is unique, the common design principles shared should help readers plan how to build their own clouds with Apache CloudStack and StorPool Storage.
This solution brief is designed to address the areas of concern for cloud builders:
How to provide uninterrupted services
How to protect user data from loss in the event of hardware failures and catastrophic events
How to ensure consistently high performance for demanding applications
How to simplify daily operating tasks and eliminate maintenance downtime
How to scale easily with growing demand
“CloudStack has proven to be a popular and valuable platform for organizations looking to leverage the benefits of its simplicity and ease of use when deploying private or public clouds,” said Boyan Ivanov, CEO from StorPool Storage. “Cloud providers, MSPs, and enterprises around the world use StorPool with CloudStack because of its efficiency, scalability, and reliability. The solutions brief we developed with the Apache CloudStack community shows how users can get a superb experience, including blazing speeds, when combining StorPool Storage with Apache CloudStack.”
StorPool Storage volume management is integrated with Apache CloudStack to enable seamless use of StorPool Storage system capabilities through CloudStack’s GUI, CLI, and API interfaces. With integration, the features available in StorPool are inherited by every cloud deployed with StorPool Storage – enabling cloned provisioning, instant snapshots, thin provisioning, and backup, disaster recovery, and Quality of Service (QoS) policies per virtual disk or virtual machine (VM). Thanks to the operation of StorPool, the provisioning of virtual machines is almost instantaneous, and data placement policies and other parameters can be modified along the way to meet changing user needs. The result of the deep integration between the two systems is that there is no need to directly manage the storage system as all interactions between CloudStack and StorPool are automated.
StorPool will showcase its capabilities within Apache CloudStack environments at the upcoming CloudStack Collaboration Conference November 14-16 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Presentations given by StorPool executives include “Automated CloudStack Deployment” on Monday, November 14 at 2:00 p.m., “StorPool Storage Overview and Integration with CloudStack” on Tuesday, November 15 at 12:30 p.m., and others. Additional details and registration options are available at https://www.cloudstackcollab.org/.
