The Backstory

xStor was founded by Paul Getchel and Steve Klenk. Paul, a systems architect, had been a master distributor for Dell and a manufacturer of custom data storage systems for almost twenty years. Steve, a PriceWaterhouseCoopers Consulting Group alumnus, had designed end-to-end technology workflows for motion picture studios, film archives, universities and government clients for more than fifteen years.

The xStor team had discovered the ugly truth about the state of the data storage industry. Virtually every storage solution was egregiously overpriced or woefully underpowered. Worse yet, all required at least some retooling by the xStor team to fit the clients’ requirements into the variegated constraints unilaterally imposed by these so-called “solutions.”

We heard the same story over and over again from our clients. The storage vendors were forcing their customers to change the way they did business. They were holding their customers’ data captive with proprietary vendor locks. They were charging huge annual licensing and maintenance fees, effectively doubling each customer’s Total Cost of Ownership every five years.

We decided to provide xStor clients precisely what they want.

The Vision

Our vision was to take the concept of “Software Defined Storage” (SDS) to a level never before possible – with enough flexibility to fit like a bespoke glove around the way our clients choose to do business.

The result? xStor homogenizes virtually every storage topology (FC SAN, NAS, FCoE, iSCSI) and technology (SMB, NFS, CIFS, AppleTalk, Block, File, Object) — into a single, hyper-converged solution for every product we sell. Then we add in unparalleled performance that decimates all competing solutions.

xStor users can pick just one technology or work them all concurrently. Block and File operating simultaneously while running Object Stores and CIFS? No problem. All with the same disk pools? You got it. True industry standard High Availability can be built-in right out of the box.

The xStor Difference

With every storage solution we sell, we include a five-year full system warranty, we charge ZERO licensing and maintenance fees during the first five years of ownership, and we ensure no downtime for our clients by including a hot-swappable Cold Spares Kit. And we offer it all for less than half the price charged by the big storage vendors for their hardware alone.

Indeed, xStor has turned the storage industry on its head. Our clients are not forced to change their business models just to grow quarterly earnings for their storage vendors. Instead, clients are now using xStor to do business the way they want to do business while improving their own bottom line.

What Makes xStor
Different from Others?

xStor Homogenized Storage

Lets You Run Your Business

The Way You See Fit.

  • Our solutions don’t force you to make adjustments and changes in the way you do business, but rather the opposite is true.
  • Our Homogenized Storage gives you the power to configure part or all of it as you see fit, on-the-fly.
  • If you have applications or types of data that are better served by Fibre Channel Block I/O, that capability is built into every xStor solution.
  • If you don’t have FC Fabric installed, but still need Block I/O, that’s OK! We offer FCoE and iSCSI in the box
  • SMB? Check! CIFS? Check! FTP? Check! NFS? Check! AppleTalk? Check!
