Revolutionizing Storage: How StorONE Solves Your Biggest Data Management Challenges

Written by: Chris Mellon, Sr. Solution Architect, StorONE


In today’s fast-paced digital world, data is the lifeblood of any organization. As businesses grow and evolve, they face numerous challenges in managing and protecting their data. At StorONE, we understand these challenges and have developed a revolutionary approach to storage that addresses the pain points of our customers. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the common issues faced by our customers and how our unique storage solution, the StorONE Engine, solves these problems.

The 5 Degrees of Storage Complexity

  • Multiple Storage Arrays: Many organizations are forced to deploy multiple storage arrays to meet the demands of their business, which increases complexity and costs.
  • Data Resiliency: Ensuring that data is protected from hardware failure, attack, and optimized for its value over time is a critical concern.
  • Refresh/Migration: The need to upgrade, migrate, and replace storage systems every few years is a painful and time-consuming process.
  • Operations: Managing multiple storage systems with different interfaces and feature sets leads to inefficient use of resources and increased operational costs.
  • Lack of Storage Platform: Siloed storage systems create inefficiencies and make it difficult to manage data effectively.

Introducing the StorONE Engine: A Revolutionary Approach to Storage

At StorONE, we’ve re-engineered the software I/O subsystem to address the challenges our customers face. Our innovative approach offers several benefits, including:

  • Cacheless Architecture: Eliminates bottlenecks in the I/O path, allowing for resource pooling efficiencies and I/O segmentation and isolation.
  • vRaid: Accelerates performance and protection, enabling rapid drive rebuilds and per-volume optimization.
  • Differentiated Snapshots: Provides zero performance overhead, unlimited snapshots, and ransomware protection through electronic “air-gap” immutability.
  • Optimized Data Placement: Continually moves data to the lower tier for excellent performance, ensuring data is on the right media at the right time.
  • Independent Granular Scaling: Allows for scaling by the drive, enabling the use of less expensive media over time.
  • Non-Proprietary Swappable Hardware: Enables the use of drives, interfaces, and controllers that get better over time, ensuring your storage solution remains up to date.
  • High Availability: Dual redundant controllers provide a standby storage area to run production applications in the event of a ransomware attack on primary storage.


By addressing these pain points and offering a comprehensive and flexible storage solution, the StorONE Engine enables organizations to manage their data more efficiently, reduce costs, and improve overall operations. With the StorONE Engine, you can say goodbye to the complexities of traditional storage solutions and embrace a more streamlined and effective approach to data management.
