Per Volume (LUN)
Per VM/container (eg. OpenStack, Kubernetes)
StorPool supports per-volume (LUN) snapshots that are fine-grained (4KB) and crash-consistent by default. Higher levels of data consistency can be achieved by orchestration e.g. you can get application-consistent snapshots by first instructing the application to freeze, then taking the snapshot and unfreezing the application.

In many deployments where cloud orchestration platforms are used, there is 1-to-1 relationship between a virtual disk and a volume. In these cases snapshots are being created per virtual disk. Examples of relevant cloud orchestration platforms are OpenStack, CloudStack with KVM, OnApp, OpenNebula and Kubernetes (for persistent volumes).

StorPool also supports crash-consistent snapshots of multiple volumes (LUNs).
