Gridstore to Demonstrate Optimized Storage for the Modern Data Center at Silicon Valley VMUG

The Grid Delivers Powerful Storage That Scales Based on Simple Building Blocks

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - Gridstore™, the leading provider of optimized storage for the modern data center, today announced that it will be showcasing the Grid at the VMware User Group (VMUG) Conference on May 1, 2013 in Silicon Valley.

The Grid capitalizes on the power of virtualization by virtualizing the controller and moving it across the network, onto the server, close to the workload so that it can optimize for each application. It then combines the virtual controller (vController), with simple building blocks of storage to create a grid-based storage architecture that delivers simple, powerful and affordable storage. By separating the control layer from the physical storage, the Grid becomes more powerful as it grows, eliminating any bottlenecks, while at the same time allowing the storage nodes to be lower cost, simple devices.

"Modern datacenters are increasingly composed of a mix of physical and virtual environments. As such, the needs of these datacenters, and the workloads running in them, have changed as well," said George Symons, CEO, Gridstore. "Take something as simple as backups. In a virtualized environment, the requirements on the target storage to meet backup and restore windows are much more demanding than in physical environments. Traditional storage solutions only provide the ability to optimize one way; providing a one size fits all solution. The Grid was designed to optimize, per workload, by leveraging our Server Side Virtual Controller™ (SVC) technology and to easily scale as required to offer the best price performance storage solution without the need to overprovision. We look forward to showcasing the Grid at VMUG to demonstrate the significant benefits we are delivering to VM backup environments."

The VMware User Group (VMUG) is an independent, global, customer-led organization, created to maximize members' use of VMware and partner solutions through knowledge sharing, training, collaboration, and events. Registration for VMUG conferences is open and included as part of member benefits for all VMUG members.
