Gridstore 3.0 Software-Defined Storage Solution Now in General Availability

3.0 Bridges the Gap Between Traditional Storage and Virtualized Servers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - Gridstore™, the leader in optimized storage for Windows Server with Hyper-V that accelerates application I/O up to 500%, today announced general availability for its revolutionary new software-defined storage (SDS) solution, Gridstore 3.0. Architected specifically for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Hyper-V, 3.0 was designed to address the architectural disconnect between traditional storage and virtualized servers, a critical issue to help deliver performance in a Windows Server Hyper-V environment at an affordable price point with massive scalability. Both 3.0 hybrid and capacity models are now available and shipping in either 4TB or 12TB node configurations with a minimum of 3 nodes required.

Designed to meet the storage virtualization challenges faced by mid-size enterprises Gridstore 3.0 is available in both hybrid and capacity models, providing the perfect solution for optimizing virtualized application performance. 3.0 delivers improved application performance and the industry's first and only TrueQoS™ (True Quality of Service) in a pay-as-you-scale format. Both easy-to-use and manage, Gridstore solutions fit naturally into Windows architecture appearing like local hard drives to the operating system. It is the perfect storage solution for both performance (hybrid caching) as well as capacity storage challenges.

Originally only available through the Gridstore Early Access Program (EAP) 3.0 has been met with overwhelming acceptance with 100% of their beta customers converting to purchase with the vast majority experiencing even greater application acceleration than anticipated as well as dramatically improved ease-of-install and management.

Gridstore 3.0 was designed from the ground up to accelerate applications in virtual environments. Unlike traditional one-size-fits-all storage, Gridstore 3.0 leverages their patented Server-Side Virtual Controller™ Technology (SVCT ) to eliminate the I/O blender and accelerate application I/O in three ways. 

1. vmOptimized ™ storage accelerators adapt to the applications data patterns to accelerate performance for every application in the virtual environment.
2. TrueQoS™ is the industry's first end-to-end Storage QoS and guarantees the performance of the most important applications.
3. GridScale™ delivers massively parallel performance that scales without performance loss.
