“We are extremely pleased to be forming this technology partnership with Gridstore,” said Symon Perriman, VP of Business Development at 5nine Software. “I believe this alliance will go a long way in helping customers’ realize the full potential of their investment in their virtual infrastructure.”

“Both 5nine Software and Gridstore provide solutions purpose-built for Hyper-V,” said Victoria Grey, CMO, Gridstore. “5nine’s security products allow our service provider customers to have secure multi-tenant protection and our data center customers to have strong security that does not slow the system down and is easy to manage. It is great for VDI, SQL server or just general infrastructure environments.”

5nine solutions are fully integrated with the Gridstore all-flash HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI). Both companies implement their technology at the operating system level rather than in virtual machines. This enables easy deployment and management of the combined solution while delivering higher virtual machine (VM) density and faster storage I/O performance delivering dramatically lower total cost of ownership. Gridstore’s customers can rest assured that their infrastructure is safe from threats due to the industry’s leading security (5nine Cloud Security) solutions from 5nine Software.

Gridstore HyperConverged Infrastructure delivers compute, storage, and storage networking in a single appliance that offers market leading price/performance, efficient scaling, and scale-to-fit design. The Gridstore HCI is easy to deploy and reduces management time and effort. Leveraging its patented technology, a Gridstore HCI delivers the same performance and VM density as traditional converged solutions with 75% less physical infrastructure and a 65% lower price-per-VM. The Gridstore HyperConverged Appliance is an ideal platform for infrastructure refreshes and specific Windows workloads such as VDI, SQL Server, Dev/Test, and ROBO.
