Gridstore’s Scale-out NAS solution has stood up to months of rigorous performance and reliability testing by Storage Switzerland with absolutely no issues or outages. In the past, the analyst 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. However, Gridstore excelled at the challenge by continuing to run no matter what torture testing was done to it.
“What makes Gridstore unique is its combination of a grid architecture with virtualization to eliminate the need for clusters,” said Crump. “This allows them to take advantage of parallel processing and I/O which should significantly improve throughput. Having been involved in several scale-out implementations, this is the easiest that I have seen thus far. We had the systems from box to accepting data in less than 30 minutes.”
In the report from Storage Switzerland, they found that Gridstore’s next-generation NAS solution significantly reduces cost and complexity while delivering on the promise of harnessing multiple file servers into a single, powerful storage grid.
Gridstore Scale-out NAS storage solutions offload storage processing onto an unlimited number of Virtual Storage Controllers running in client side machines. This enables very simple low cost storage nodes to be used in parallel while generating exceptional performance, scaling and reliability that goes beyond any product it its class.
