New enterprise-class storage platform eliminates the risk, cost and complexity of traditional siloed NAS storage solutions
PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 15 -- Gridstore, the innovation leader in enterprise-class Network Attached Storage (NAS) grid solutions, today launched the beta of its new NASg storage platform designed to eliminate the risk, cost and complexity of traditional siloed storage solutions. Gridstore NASg aggregates the processing power of client systems and performs complex parallel storage processes on existing NAS resources while assuring the reliability required for today's 24x7 business operations.
"Today's small-to-mid-size IT organizations and managed service providers (MSP) are facing storage sprawl that is at critical levels," said Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst, Taneja Group. "This siloed data is complex and costly to manage with a high risk of data loss. Gridstore has developed an innovative approach to consolidate this storage while optimizing efficiency for IT customers and profitability for managed service provider customers. It truly is an innovative and cost-effective approach to solving the storage dilemma."
The Gridstore NASg platform combines the simplicity, convenience and affordability of NAS with the scalability, performance and reliability of enterprise-class storage. As a result, MSPs can provide their SMB customers with a powerful on premise NAS storage grid that eliminates storage sprawl and multiple single points of failure while providing a next-generation storage offering at 1/3 the cost of standalone NAS solutions.
Key benefits of Gridstore NASg include:
"Our Gridstore NASg solution combines the benefits and simplicity of NAS storage devices with new, innovative features for increased scalability, performance and reliability," said Kelly Murphy, CEO and co-founder of Gridstore. "This results in an enterprise-class storage solution that cost-efficiently delivers storage with unlimited storage capacity, network bandwidth and processing capacity while assuring the reliability and availability that small and mid-tier businesses require."
The cornerstone of Gridstore NASg is the Gridstore NASg Storage Block, an Intel/Microsoft-based storage node that features embedded Windows XP, an Intel Atom core, 1GB of RAM, and up to 2TB of SATA hard disk drives. Pricing for the Gridstore NASg storage platform begins at $800 with individual expansion nodes starting at just $300.
