In the end, they selected StorPool because of its high performance, robust API, unique space savings features and the extremely high level of data protection offered from its triple data replication.

“It is absolutely critical for us that our storage is both 100% reliable and 100% available. And StorPool 100% lives up to that promise!”, said Alex Easter, CTO of Krystal.

According to Simon Blackler, CEO of Krystal, StorPool combines technical proficiency with passion. That’s a rare combination, and it’s been an absolute pleasure for Krystal to work with StorPool and get to know the team over the last few years. Simon shared he is very excited about what Krystal and StorPool are going to be able to achieve together in the future.

StorPool supports Krystal’s ultra-fast NVMe-powered cloud platform Katapult with massive storage performance, a robust API, unique capacity management features to save hardware costs, and an extremely high level of data protection via triple replication to safeguard Krystal clients’ data.
