Gal Naor, Co-Founder & CEOThere is no argument that traditional storage solutions require big hardware stacks and are expensive to purchase and operate. “Today’s storage market fails to give data executives the power to increase performance and improve data protection without compromising on the cost and complexity of storage,” said Gal Naor, CEO and co-founder of StorONE.
By completely re-engineering storage software, StorONEprovides the best CapEx and OpEx results of any storage solution. According to Guy Loewenberg, the company’s VP of Strategic Accounts, “Our solution proves to be successful as it dramatically boosts the utilization of storage hardware.”
The company’s flagship S1 software allows the storage manager to operate any combination of storage access protocols (Block, file and object) for all use cases, with a myriad of deployment options. StorONE solves some of the longstanding predicaments in the industry through this approach.
For instance, meeting performance needs does not require faster media per-se. It requires removing the processing bottleneck, which chokes the communication between resources, and increases the amount of hardware needed. S1 enables the storage system to extract the full potential, performance, and capacity from its hardware resources.
StorONE’s approach to addressing these challenges is a stark contrast to conventional ways. By rewriting the legacy storage software algorithms from scratch, the company completely decouples the underlying hardware from the software. Clients find this extremely beneficial as they can mix and match storage resources (NVME, SSD and HDD), quickly integrate the latest technologies, and utilize the raw specs of the storage media. Perhaps most importantly, they, they can use far less hardware to meet their storage capacity and performance needs. Additionally, the customer gains complete enterprise-class data services without compromising performance.

The heart of S1 technology is Total Resource Utilization (TRU™), a trademarked architecture developed by them. The architecture is designed to decrease the amount of hardware needed while ensuring that customers achieve the desired result. Using relatively modest servers and fewer drives than its competitors, StorONE delivers the required performance and capacity, while retaining the feature-rich storage capabilities that enterprises demand with no compromises. S1 is a truly software-defined storage solution, which means that it implements all processing in the software, and does not require any specialized hardware for delivering any of the processing functions. The results are no vendor hardware lock-in, maximum operational and functional flexibility, transparent expandability and upgradability, future-proofing, and more.
“TRU SDS enables software-defined storage not only to fulfill its original promise but also to allow organizations to reimagine what they can do with the technology,” said Naor.
Having started as an idea to create a results-oriented storage software solution in 2010, StorONE has grown exponentially and secured more than 50 patents for its technological prowess. With headquarters in New York, offices in Texas, Tel Aviv, and Singapore, the company aims to continue transforming the storage economics and resource utilization while preventing storage software from becoming a performance bottleneck for IT professionals.
