The goal of Microsoft’s Enterprise Partner Cloud Alliance is to create, nurture and grow a strong partner eco-system across a broad set of Enterprise Cloud Products delivering the best on-premises, Private and Public Cloud solutions in the industry. The Alliance was formed to promote and support partners providing integrations and extensions to existing Microsoft products.
Gridstore’s HyperConverged Appliances (HCA) are purpose-built for the Microsoft Cloud-Inspired Data Center. The HCA brings together compute, SAN and storage into a single system that offers all-flash bare-metal performance, efficient scaling, and scale-to-fit design that eliminates costly compute sprawl. Customers achieve a 10X performance increase with 75% less infrastructure delivering 4X decrease in TCO. The Gridstore HyperConverged Appliance is an ideal platform for infrastructure refreshes and specific Windows workloads such as VDI, SQL Server, Dev/Test, and ROBO.
Gridstore’s HyperConverged Infrastructure supports Windows Azure Pack, enabling deployment of Private-Cloud-in-a-Box easily and cost-effectively. Azure Pack provides a multi-tenant, self-service private cloud interface that works with Windows Server and System Center, to deliver self-service provisioning, easy movement of workloads to the cloud, and infrastructure management. Additionally, Gridstore’s integration with System Center includes VMM for policy-based provisioning and orchestration of compute and storage resources at VM-level granularity. Building on this with v 3.5 of its HyperConverged Infrastructure, Gridstore has released OAuth for admin level authentication to enforce additional security, as well as support for WMI Counters for system-level monitoring, tracking, and reporting of key metrics such as IOPs and latency of each VM.
