Software-Defined Storage Leader Expands Into Growing Irish Marketplace

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2014) - Gridstore™, a leader in software-defined storage optimized for Windows Servers and Hyper-V that accelerates application I/O, announces that Datarch, a leading strategic data management provider in the Irish marketplace has joined its industry-leading Accelerate™ Partner Program. The addition of Datarch marks Gridstore's first foray into the Irish marketplace, coming within weeks of debuting its Accelerate Partner Program in EMEA.

"As the marketplace becomes more saturated, it is becoming more important to differentiate through the scale and quality of offerings you can deliver and we are always aiming to provide the best to our end users," said Brian Montgomery, Managing Director, Datarch Ireland. Through Gridstore's Accelerate Partner Program, we are able to offer cost-effective and innovative software-defined storage solutions to our customers seeking to optimize existing investments in their virtual environments."

Headquartered in Mountain View, California, Gridstore's innovative solutions address the primary storage challenges that impact application performance in virtual environments and give partners a real point of difference. The Accelerate partner program is designed to provide the tools, resources and experience to ensure that partners are fully equipped with the building blocks to successfully promote the solution.

Chris Horn, Gridstore board member says: "This is a very exciting time to be expanding into Ireland. The rise and fall of the Celtic tiger was an unfortunate setback, but according to the European Commission's recent economic growth forecasts, Ireland's economy will grow by 1.8 per cent this year and 2.9 per cent in 2015, illustrating that the country is getting back on its feet. Gridstore sees a lot of potential in Ireland as a place to expand and through our Accelerate Partner Program and our new partner Datarch, we're in a great position to do just that."

Andy Hill, Vice President of EMEA Channel Sales, Gridstore adds: "We are very pleased to welcome Datarch into the EMEA Accelerate Program as they will play an integral role in expanding our reach into the Irish market with software-defined storage solutions for the Microsoft Hyper-V market. Adding Gridstore to their portfolio will provide them access to solutions utilizing our capacity optimized and hybrid storage storage nodes that leverage our Server Side Virtual Controller Technology (SVCT) to improve application performance, thereby meeting their customer needs."
