Hosted.nl’s Challenges

As a cloud and IT services provider, data storage is a critical – if not THE MOST critical – part of all services and solutions Hosted.nl offers. Therefore, the company needs reliable, scalable and affordable software and hardware solutions for all of their data storage.

Why Hosted.nl chose StorPool and Supermicro

Kevin Schouwenaar, Manager Professional Services explains why Hosted.nl relies on Storpool software and Supermicro hardware for their data storage needs:

“StorPool is incredibly fast and reliable: each block of data is saved 3 times! It is also perfectly scalable and their support is amazing. On top of all this, it integrates well with other platforms, so we don’t experience any performance issues.

S3S offers certified storage hardware that has been tested and proven to work perfectly together with StorPool’s solutions. It gives us everything we need at a great price.”

Why Hosted.nl chose S3S

Hosted.nl has been buying their Supermicro hardware from S3S for many years . “We buy almost all of our Supermicro hardware from S3S. They communicate well, their delivery times are good and their prices are economical.

We only had to contact their support once, to replace a defective motherboard. They were very responsive and solved our issue quickly.” says Kevin.
