Gridstore – High Performance, Scalable Infrastructure

gridstore_imageGridstore hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) delivers VDI building blocks of compute, storage, and storage networking, with sub-millisecond latency per I/O to deliver a better user experience than a local PC. The Gridstore HCI is simple to deploy and reduces management time and effort. It reduces infrastructure by 75% and price-per-VM by 65% over converged infrastructures. It can run 500 desktops in a 2U HCI appliance inclusive of failover, but can scale from as few as 100 desktops to tens of thousands.

Customers gain a 10X performance improvement over traditional storage because Gridstore puts all-flash as close to the workload as possible. Performance is also higher than other solutions because Gridstore has optimized its appliance for Windows Server and Hyper-V. Other patented innovations such as per-VM I/O control and elastic and independent scaling of resources also help it outperform traditional compute and storage solutions, at much lower cost.
