@Gridstore to Showcase #Hyperconverged Appliance at @CloudExpo West

Gridstore, the leader in converged infrastructure architecture purpose-built for Microsoft workloads, today announced they will be showcasing their recently introduced HyperConverged Appliances at Cloud Expo West, November 4-6, 2014 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Attendees who visit Gridstore at Booth 517 will have the opportunity to see the industry's first all-flash appliance that delivers tunable, auto-optimized compute and storage resources together in a single system.

The Gridstore HyperConverged Appliances improve operational and application performance yet save on both OpEx and CapExand complement the existing Gridstore Storage Nodes which already provide the greatest scalability and optimized price/performance storage for Hyper-V available today. With the addition of the HyperConverged Appliance, Gridstore is adding a new implementation option for customers that meets the rapidly growing need of IT organizations for a simple, easy-to-deploy solution, yet one that still allows highly elastic independently scalable compute and storage.

Gridstore has leveraged its unique, patented software architecture in this innovative design. This architecture allows administrators to set quality of service on a per VM basis to ensure the most important applications get the resources they need to perform. Unlike other hyper-converged systems that cannot scale storage independently, and unique to Gridstore, is the ability to mix and match HyperConverged Appliances and Storage Nodes, along with their associated servers. This means the easy turnkey deployment of hyper-converged systems can be combined with the extensibility of independent servers and storage, to maximize both flexibility and resource management. Additionally, the Gridstore design eliminates the need for the typical 3-way replica, thereby providing increased usable capacity and up to 50% TCO savings.
