Gridstore to Showcase Scale-out NAS Solution During Campus Technology 2011

Higher Education Market Eliminates Storage Sprawl, Reduces Risk and Management Complexity With Gridstore's Next-Generation NAS Storage

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 22, 2011) - Gridstore™, the leader in scale-out NAS solutions for the SMB market, announced today that it will showcase its Gridstore Scale-out NAS solution during Campus Technology 2011 in Boston, MA, July 25-28, in booth #757, at the Seaport World Trade Center. Gridstore's Scale-out NAS offering combines the simplicity, convenience and affordability of NAS with the scalability, performance and reliability of enterprise-class storage at half the cost of proprietary solutions.

The Gridstore next-generation storage solution consolidates distributed NAS islands into a powerful, enterprise-class storage grid. As a result, the Gridstore Scale-out NAS solution is an ideal offering for Managed Service Providers (MSP), small and medium sized businesses (SMB), and distributed enterprises because it eliminates storage sprawl and combines the ease of NAS with the scalability and performance of enterprise-class storage.

"I selected Gridstore because I can get a scalable and reliable scale-out NAS system that provides me with enterprise features with minimal capital investment, and I don't have to plan or pay for my future storage requirements today," said Steve Garcia, systems and security administrator, Wenatchee Valley College. "We are implementing the Gridstore Scale-out NAS solution across our different departments and campuses; the system's combination of scalability and economies of scale are a very compelling value proposition for anyone who wants an on-demand storage solution that lets you add capacity on the fly with no performance or management headaches."

The Gridstore storage platform is designed to eliminate the risk, cost and complexity of traditional silo-based storage and gives SMBs a "Pay as you Grow" pricing model that allows organizations to add storage as needed to eliminate the high cost of over provisioning and managing storage resources -- while minimizing the reliability and risk of multiple NAS storage silos.

"Faculty, administrators and IT professionals in higher education are facing the same storage challenges as larger enterprises, but are severely limited to the amount of resources and money available to effectively manage their 24/7 operations," said Kelly Murphy, CEO, Gridstore. "If storage stops their campus stops and this is not an option. Gridstore leverages all the benefits of NAS, but on an enterprise-scale so that everyone in higher education receives the scale-out NAS solution they need with the simplicity and reliability they require."
