We combine industry standard hardware with feature rich software to create agile, robust, solutions.

Software-defined Storage (SDS)

Custom, scalable & flexible storage storage solution

Custom, scalable & flexible storage solutions

Commodity hardware helps drive efficiency savings within your data-centre. We can help you embrace the many advantages of software-defined storage through architecting a custom, scalable and flexible solution, sized to support your application specific needs. This could be anything from Windows Spaces or open-source ZFS server clusters with industry standard servers and JBODs, to a petabyte-scale object storage distributed compute cluster.

Hyper-converged systems

Improve management and flexibility

If you are looking to refresh or scale-out your production infrastructure for virtualised applications, you could benefit from the greater flexibility, improved management and reduced latency that hyper-converged infrastructure offers. Instead of purchasing a hypervisor, some servers, an all flash array and storage switching, you can deploy an appliance containing the four elements; compute, storage, networking and virtualisation. With some intelligent software providing resource management, and enabling you to simply scale performance and capacity, you can deploy and scale-out clustered solutions in minutes.

How we can help you

Request an infrastructure assessment

The guesswork stops here. How much data do you have? How much capacity do you use? What amount performance will you need to deliver to sustain a reasonable user experience?

We're here to help you gain valuable insight. That's why we will undertake an infrastructure assessment as part of the discovery phase, revealing the metrics which you can then rely upon to make an informed decision on the technology you require, rather than what you think you need...

Expert consultancy

With nearly 30 years' experience designing complex solutions for compute and data storage projects, we will provide as much or as little consultancy as you need. Whether your need to support a work group, department, your whole business or a multi-site deployment, we've probably delivered a similar project so are well placed to add value.

Solution integration

We partner with hardware and software vendors to provide the 'glue' that brings your solution to life. We've designed multi-vendor solutions for disk-to-disk backup, archiving, high-frequency trading, CCTV, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and application acceleration, video editing, streaming and more.

Design & architecture

Perhaps you just need to buy some affordable disk storage to add capacity to your existing environment. We'll help you to select the most suitable hardware platform. If you need a little more help, we can architect a fully integrated solution. Our experienced, friendly, technical sales team is always here to to assist you.

Adding value to your purchase

Once we've presented you with some options, or made a recommendation on what you should buy, we will negotiate the best deal with the manufacturer for you. This will help you to reduce your capital expenditure and increase the return on your investment. If you can't find what you're looking for here, why don't you discuss your requirements with us?

Feedback from some of the projects we have delivered

Shared storage area for Met Police

Network storage for digital forensic investigation

Helping the police to protect and process evidence affordably.

Simply, we were looking to acquire as much storage, at the best price possible, and got the best deal with JetStor out of all the manufacturers we approached. VSPL also had a good understanding of our requirements and sold us the best, not the most expensive, equipment to meet our needs. We have also enjoyed excellent after sales service.

Custom engineering design

Large-scale archival storage of digital objects

Helping The British Library build a large-scale digital preservation system.

Our procurement was conducted using the procedures appropriate for a UK Government body. After careful consideration of the sixteen responses that we received we awarded the tender to VSPL, who proposed a solution using JetStor disk arrays. The cost quoted was well under £100,000.

Technology Watch Report - Digital Preservation Coalition

 

Video editing SAN design

Video editing SAN

Accelerating post-production in North London.

We are very happy with the performance, speed and efficiency. Much better than previous systems and easily capable of handling the high data rates required using the new RED ONE™ HD camera system. Also great service and backup from VSPL.
