Gridstore the leader in hyper-converged all flash infrastructure today announced that its innovative Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) solution was once again chosen over competing technology offered by Nutanix. This latest win at Host Collective comes directly on the heels of its 2016 customer satisfaction survey that garnered an over 93% overall satisfaction rating from the respondents the majority representing companies with 250-5000 employees. 98% of IT professionals surveyed overwhelmingly stated they would both recommend Gridstore to a colleague and purchase again.

Every time Gridstore has gone head-to-head against market leader Nutanix in a proof of concept competition, Gridstore has been chosen as the winning vendor. The most recent example is Host Collective who chose Gridstore's HCI to upgrade its cloud infrastructure after extensive testing carefully weighing it in side-by-side comparisons with Nutanix. "We felt that the Gridstore all-flash solution was a much stronger option than the Nutanix hybrid in performance, simplicity, and value," said Frank Cheung, CTO, Host Collective.

Host Collective has selected two Gridstore HyperConverged Appliances, each with two nodes and 34TB of all-flash capacity. According to the customer, the Gridstore HCI solution proved to be faster, less expensive, and simpler to install and configure than Nutanix.
