Companies Collaborate in the Delivery of Software Defined Storage That’s Optimized for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V Backup Environments

Mountain View, Calif. and Burlington, Ontario – April 2, 2013 – Gridstore™, the leader in software defined storage solutions, and Vypyr Solutions, Inc., a leading Canadian IT solutions provider, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver The Grid, a scalable, powerful and affordable storage solution optimized for Veeam to achieve dynamic scalability, high performance and industry-superior data protection in virtualized environments. Through their partnership, Gridstore is extending its reach into the Canadian market while expanding its scope with mid-tier enterprises.

“Our SMB customers have the same storage requirements as larger enterprises, yet budget constraints often prevent them from achieving the availability and scalability they need,” said Colin Berrie, vice president of sales, Vypyr Solutions. “With Gridstore we can help our customers achieve the performance and I/O requirements they need along with the failover, redundancy and capacity they demand all in a simple cost-effective solution. It’s the ideal complement to Veeam backup solutions, especially for demanding virtual environments.”

Vypyr Solutions will add Gridstore to its comprehensive solutions offering which also includes Veeam for enterprises looking to embrace the efficiency and value of virtual infrastructures. The combined Gridstore/Veeam solution delivers the scalable storage solution SMBs and mid-market enterprises require for the backup and capacity needed to build a cloud environment on-premise and in the cloud.

“Vypyr Solutions is a very savvy solutions provider that is expert in matching business requirements with the best solution to achieve rapid results for their customers,” said Chris Sterbenc, vice president of sales, Gridstore. “They deliver the business services and custom-designed solutions their customers need to meet their onsite and virtualization requirements today and tomorrow. We are pleased to partner with them in Ontario.”

Gridstore is optimized storage for Veeam. The Grid is software defined storage that delivers a simple building block approach to storage with virtual controller technology that can uniquely optimize for the performance requirements of Veeam and VM backup workloads. The Grid delivers the critical capability of scaling capacity – I/O – performance to ensure backup windows are never missed as volumes grow. The Grid allows you to Pay-as-you-Scale so you do not have to over provision storage resources and pay up front for resources you may not use for 24 months or more. Now you can start small, pay-as-you-scale to meet your backup objectives and deliver the fastest parallel restore time when you need it the most.
