Gridstore's Scale-Out Storage Solution Wins the 2011 Cloud Computing Excellence Award Sponsored by Cloud Computing Magazine

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 1, 2012) - Gridstore™, the leader in grid based, scale-out storage solutions, today announced that the company has been awarded the first Cloud Computing Excellence Award from TMC. Gridstore was selected as one of the top 30 companies that most effectively leveraged cloud computing in efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market. The winners will be published in the January 2012 issue of Cloud Computing Magazine.

With Gridstore's scale-out storage solution small and medium sized organizations enjoy simple plug and play scaling of capacity, IO and performance without the cost, complexity and 3X capacity bloat of first-generation cluster based offerings. Gridstore's unique grid based NAS is the only scale-out solution that provides a fault tolerant system designed to withstand multiple, simultaneous failures without downtime or data loss to ensure customers can run 24/7 non-stop. Gridstore allows customers to start small and grow capacity to any size required simply by adding storage nodes to their network. This eliminates the need for customers to over provision storage and removes the risk and cost of standalone storage silos common with traditional storage approaches.

"We continue to see strong adoption of storage applications in the cloud and we are honored to be recognized for our innovation and leadership by Cloud Computing Magazine," said Kelly Murphy, CEO Gridstore. "Receiving the top storage software award for our scale-out storage solution is further validation of our building block approach to storage that offers enterprise-class performance, simplicity, reliability and scalability -- at an affordable price for any organization."
