Headquartered in Mountain View California, Gridstore uses patented Server-side Virtual Controller technology (SVCT) to deliver vmOptimized, offering self-optimisimation to each application across both virtual and physical environments.

Gridstore CEO, George Symons explains: “As an established leading US provider of software-defined storage, bringing our innovative offerings to the EMEA is the natural next step for Gridstore. With a strong and dedicated executive team, we are in a position to make a great impact on the IT and storage marketplace.”
Gridstore offers storage optimised for Hyper-V, Windows Server 2012, Veeam and also backup and recovery. Gridstore 3.0 has been designed from the ground up to accelerate applications in virtual environments. Unlike traditional one-size-fits-all storage, Gridstore 3.0 uses patented Server-Side Virtual ControllerTM Technology (SVCT ) to eliminate the I/O blender for each virtual machine and accelerate application I/O.

Designed to meet the storage virtualisation challenges faced by mid-sized enterprises, Gridstore 3.0 is available in both hybrid and capacity models, providing the perfect solution for optimising virtualised application performance.

Symons continues: “In 2014, we believe that software-defined storage will go from being a nebulous buzzword to becoming a reality for many organisations and we’re glad to be in a position to offer solutions to meet this demand in the US and now also in the UK.”

“We have seen great success in the US and believe it is the right time to expand into other markets. It feels like the right time to target the UK, and there is, undoubtedly a real opportunity here for us to exploit key gaps in the current market offerings.”
