Gridstore’s Next-Generation NAS Gives Organizations a Simple Building Block Approach to Add Capacity Based on Business Requirements Eliminating the Need to Overprovision Costly Storage Resources

Mountain View, Calif. – October 25, 2011 – Gridstore™, the leader in scale-out NAS solutions, today announced additional findings as part of a 90 day test drive series conducted by Storage Switzerland titled, “Gridstore Scale Out NAS Test Drive – Expansion.” Part three of the hands-on review of the Gridstore NASg solution validates the ease of expanding volumes as a key component of the Gridstore system.

Gridstore’s scale-out NAS solution has stood up to three months of rigorous performance and reliability testing by Storage Switzerland with absolutely no issues or outages. In the past, the firm has tested other NAS systems without proper power shutdown and found that they inexplicably reboot, turn themselves off or just drop their network connection.

With Gridstore, organizations have a building block approach to storage that allows them to add capacity on the fly by simply adding additional nodes when needed. The Gridstore NASg virtualizes any number of storage nodes into a powerful storage grid that eliminates storage sprawl and multiple single points of failure while providing a next-generation storage offering at 1/2 the cost of standalone NAS solutions.

“The point of scale-out NAS is to be able to grow when you need it without overprovisioning costly storage resources,” said Kelly Murphy, CEO, Gridstore. “With Gridstore’s solution, every organization, regardless of the size of its data storage requirements, can easily add capacity by simply connecting additional nodes and letting our system take care of the rest. Storage Switzerland has validated that our scale-out NAS works with ease and stands up to the test for increased scalability, performance and reliability.”
