Gridstore, a provider of hyper-converged all-flash infrastructure delivered as an appliance, is attending this years’ Cloud Expo Europe for the first time. The event, which is being held from 12 -13 April at the Excel Centre in London, will be an opportunity for Gridstore (stand 150) to showcase its hyper-converged infrastructure for the cloud and data center markets.
Gridstore, which has recently closed a $19 million growth capital funding round, will be demonstrating its range of Microsoft enabled hyper-converged appliances. With its patented software, Gridstore hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) would be able to reduce physical space by up to 75 per cent while offering a more cost-effective alternative to VMware solutions.
Gridstore is a Microsoft Gold OEM and Gold Data Centre Partner as well as a member of the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance and fully certified to Microsoft as a Private Cloud Fast Track Program member.
“We are very excited about bringing our market-leading HCI to Cloud Expo Europe for the first time,” said Andy Hill, Vice President of EMEA Sales, Gridstore. “We have seen a rapid growth in the hyper-converged market over the last year and our own growth is proof of that. As well as our recent funding announcement, we have also secured an exclusive distribution agreement with Microwarehouse, Ireland’s leading IT distributor, as well as expanded our EMEA coverage to include Norway and the Baltics.”
Gridstore‘s hyper-converged infrastructure allows service providers the flexibility to purchase at the desired rate of customer deployment, expanding as they grow. Furthermore, service providers can leverage single pane management when trying to meet customer satisfaction levels/SLA’s.
“The broad deployment of virtualization is now driving many organizations toward the development of private clouds, to leverage resources, modernize IT, and be responsive to business demands,” added Mr. Hill. “Our hyper-converged infrastructure can enable these organisations to deliver elastic resources when and where needed, along with the performance, scalability, and value necessary. Many companies face prohibitive licensing costs with their VMware deployments without realizing that migrating to Hyper-V is cost-effective and risk free.”
