Award Winning HyperConverged Infrastructure Offers Market Leading Price/Performance
Mountain View, Calif. – May 11, 2016, Gridstore™, the leader in hyper-converged all-flash infrastructure, is attending this years’ IP EXPO in Manchester from 18 – 19 May. Gridstore (stand M242) will be showcasing its latest range of hyper-converged infrastructures at the show and visitors to the stand will be able to discuss the growth of Gridstore following its recent funding round and partnership with Irish IT distributor, MicroWarehouse.
With a recent study highlighting the growth in converting to a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), being fuelled by a desire for a smaller footprint both physically and environmentally, the market is set to expand rapidly in the coming years. By combining compute, storage and network capabilities within a single server, users are provided with a drastic space reduction as well as an all-in-one system. By merging the three services together, cost reductions and high performances are assured.
“We are seeing a big uptake in the hyper-converged market and Gridstore is at the forefront of this drive. With our exclusive Microsoft offering we are providing users with a cost and risk reduction by moving away from VMware’s costly platforms to Microsoft’s Hyper-V,” says Victoria Grey, CMO, Gridstore.
The growth in virtualisation is fuelling the increases in both private and public cloud adoption rates. With a suitable hyper-converged infrastructure in place, users are guaranteed a scalable system that is capable of withstanding the most strenuous of demands on the system. With Gridstore’s HCI system in place, users can grow their server in-line with the growth of their company.
The benefits of a Gridstore system include:
• Meet SLAs by delivering performance during peak hours and around the clock with all-flash architecture
• Guarantee application performance using Gridstore’s QoS to set priority levels on a per-VM basis
• Independently scale as user demands grow, starting with current demands and adding as needed
• Pass significant savings through flexible deployment options ranging from all flash to hybrid models addressing performance and capacity needs at the best price/performance
Gridstore is a Microsoft Gold OEM and Gold Data Centre Partner as well as a member of the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance and fully certified to Microsoft as a Private Cloud Fast Track Program member. In addition to partnering with MicroWarehouse in Ireland, Gridstore is also expanding its reach throughout EMEA to include Norway and the Baltics.
