HyperConverged All-Flash Infrastructure Leader Gridstore Showcases at TECHMENTOR 2015 Conference
Microsoft MVP & Gridstore Founder to Demonstrate Innovative Data Center Solution Purpose-Built for the Microsoft Ecosystem
Gridstore®, the leader in hyper-converged all flash infrastructure for the Microsoft Cloud-Inspired Data Center today announced they will be showcasing their industry leading HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solution at the upcoming TechMentor Conference, August 3-7 at the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington. Attendees who visit Gridstore at Booth #4 will have the opportunity to learn how Gridstore is adding a new implementation option for customers that meets the rapidly growing need of IT organizations for a simple, easy-to-deploy solution, yet one that still allows highly elastic, independently scalable compute and storage.
Additionally, Dave Kawula, Microsoft MVP and Gridstore Senior Technical Evangelist and Kelly Murphy, Gridstore Founder and CTO will be presenting an in-depth session demonstrating how you can “Go from Zero to Hero in 75 Minutes With a HyperConverged All-Flash Infrastructure That Will Make Your Data Center Rock!” Together they will address:
- What is a HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) and what are the IT trends driving it?
- What are the best use cases and workloads to maximize HCI?
- What are the best practices in designing and deploying an HCI?
- How does the Gridstore HCI integrate with Microsoft System Center, Azure, and ASR?
Attendees will learn how the first affordable All-Flash Hyper-Converged infrastructure that is purpose-built for Microsoft Cloud environments can reduce their infrastructure costs by 4x-8x while radically simplifying their environment and lower their management costs by up to 10x.

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 Azure Pack, enabling deployment of Private-Cloud-in-a-Box easily and cost-effectively. Windows 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.

Gridstore™ is the leader in HyperConverged All-Flash Infrastructure for the Microsoft Cloud-Inspired Data Center. Our customers gain a 10X performance improvement over traditional storage as we put all-flash as close to the workload as possible. They realize 4X lower TCO by consolidation of three layers of infrastructure into one built on X86 hardware, and 10X less management effort due to less management points and less infrastructure to manage. Gridstore’s HyperConverged Appliances (HCA) include both compute and storage in a single system with the flexibility for nodes being compute and storage or storage only and can scale from a minimum of three nodes to 256. Gridstore’s patented software architecture delivers native Windows integration, per-VM I/O control, and elastic and independent scaling of resources. The Gridstore HCA is an ideal platform for infrastructure refreshes and specific Windows workloads such as VDI, SQL Server, Private Cloud, and ROBO. Gridstore is headquartered in Mountain View, CA. and its products and services are available through a global network of value-added resellers.
