Gridstore Releases Version 3.6 of their All-Flash Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Gridstore, the leader in hyper-converged all-flash infrastructure today announced the release of version 3.6 of their HCI intelligent software.  Enhancements include fine grained performance monitoring and capacity reporting per VM, support for self-encrypting drives (SED), and the ability to set minimum performance reserves (IOPS per VM) for quality of service (QoS). Collectively these additions offer enhanced operational management, robust security, and the ability to provide granular clarity and control of resources on a per-VM basis.

Details include: 

  • Performance Monitoring: Support has been added for real-time and historical performance monitoring (with detailed drill-downs at the system, storage, VM, and network level) and the ability to perform proactive performance planning
  • Capacity Reporting: Ability to see detailed capacity usage metrics and perform proactive capacity planning
  • Self-Encrypting Drives: Support for data-at-rest encryption, which is critical in highly regulated environments such as Healthcare, Financial Services, and Government
  • QoS Reserves Support: Support for setting QoS IOPS reserves via minimum thresholds on a per-VM basis 

The above capabilities will also be seamlessly extended into 3rd-party management frameworks such as System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), and other 3rd-party monitoring tools.  

"We deployed the Gridstore HCI recently and it's been performing very well for us," said Stephen Cui, systems engineer, Security Service Federal Credit Union (SSFCU). "We are looking forward to being able to leverage these new additional features, especially the ability to set minimum QoS, which will enable us to provide better service for our critical applications."

"We've seen tremendous success in a variety of markets that will appreciate these new features such as enterprises who require fine grained resource control to run critical workloads in mixed environments with certainty and to enable service providers with different service level policies for their customers," said Kelly Murphy, Founder and CTO, Gridstore. "Also, the healthcare and government markets have expressed a need for SEDs and we're pleased to be able to provide this support to help meet their security and compliance requirements."
