  • StorPool

    StorPool enables so called “converged deployments”, i.e. using the same servers for both storage and compute, therefore making it possible to have a single standard “building block” for the datacenter and slashing costs. An extension to this concept is having a tight integration of the software layers running on this converged infrastructure – hypervisor, cloud management, etc – known as “hyper-convergence” or “hyper-converged” infrastructure.
