Gridstore Enhances Scale-Out NAS Lineup

Specializing in scale-out network attached storage (NAS), Gridstore is releasing the second generation of its NASg system, which is targeted at small businesses and service providers, as well as providing some information for the next two releases scheduled for Q4 2011 and Q1 2012, respectively. Founded in 2007, the Mountain View, CA-based company unveiled the beta of its first product at the end of 2009, a scalable storage grid costing about a third of similar solutions and started volume shipments last year.

Goodbye LUN technology, you served us well

The era of LUNs and volumes, as we have known them for decades in the data storage industry, is quietly coming to an end. And if you ask me, it's for all the right reasons, even if storage administrators may feel threatened by the change.

Storage infrastructure management is still elusive

We've been on a multi-decade crusade to address performance and basic storage management tasks to handle things such as protecting data in place, and scaling and expanding our data storage systems to meet new requirements. But today, when performance and scaling and expansion issues are addressed, it will be revealed that the last major challenge in the data center is storage management.

Why Hyper-Convergence is Invading the Data Center

Industry Visionary Arun Taneja Explains Why Hyper-Convergence is Invading the Data Center

 

Purpose-built for Microsoft Windows Environments

Join Arun Taneja, Founder of The Taneja Group and industry expert, as he presents the development of the hyper-converged market, and why customers are finding these solutions so compelling. Questions Arun will answer include:

  • What is hyper-converged?
  • How did this new type of solution come to be developed, and why is it important?
  • What are customers using it for and why?
  • Are their architectural limitations and what can be done about them?

Gridstore Founder and CTO, Kelly Murphy will join Arun to discuss Gridstore’s new Hyper-Converged Appliance purpose built for Windows environments, and how Gridstore solves the 5 biggest challenges of existing hyper-converged solutions. Customers looking at VDI or Hyper-V deployments and/or in State & Local gov’t or Educational institutions will find this of particular interest.

From SDS to HyperConvergence: Gridstore Expands Product Line

Gridstore, a vendor known for its software-defined storage (SDS) offering especially designed for the Microsoft Hyper-V environment, today announced that it is extending its storage solution into the HyperConvergence category. The company’s storage offerings don’t disappear by any means and users can still buy just the storage alone but now they can essentially buy the entire IT in a box by opting for the HyperConverged Appliance(s). By doing so they will not need anything else to run the applications. Of course, this has been the entire raison d’être for HyperConvergence from the start and given the market response to the early HyperConverged products (and the fact that Gridstore had the underlying software defined architecture) it is no surprise to see them extend their product line into this blazing hot space.

Vendor Panel: The New Shape of Software Defined Storage

Come listen in as Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett explores the rapidly expanding world of Software Defined Storage with a panel of the hottest SDS vendors in the market. These panelists will no doubt come out swinging with their best definitions of Software Defined - we already know they don't see eye-to-eye. What does a true SDS solution need to offer, and how are they different from each other? How can SDS change the datacenter landscape? Is SDS a pre-req for the SDDC or hybrid cloud? Do we need SDS just to stay competitive as data storage needs continue to grow? Where should you start deploying SDS, or is it mature enough to even start today? Bring your best SDS questions for these panelists as we search for some Software Defined answers.
