Gridstore Receives Certification for Veeam

Companies Unite to Achieve Powerful, Scalable and Affordable Data Protection for Virtualized Environments

Gridstore, a provider software defined storage solutions, has announced that it has partnered with Veeam, an innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V. Together, they will deliver an optimized storage solution that provides dynamic scalability, high performance and industry-superior data protection in virtualized environments.

"Gridstore takes a unique building-block approach to storage that helps organizations break free of the limitations of monolithic storage systems," said Rick Hoffman, vice president of worldwide alliances and channels at Veeam Software. "When used with Veeam Backup & Replication solutions, Gridstore's ‘The Grid' solution enables virtual environments to scale simply and easily as their needs grow with a single pool of storage that never runs out of capacity. It's ideal for the virtualized mid-market customer."

The Grid was designed to scale by adding simple and affordable storage building blocks. This means that companies will never have to worry about running out of capacity or added complexity as environments grow. This is especially valuable for companies that rely on virtualization infrastructures. By combining The Grid with Veeam Backup & Replication, organizations can leverage the Grid for a truly seamless backup process that will automatically replace any node that fails, without business disruption. The Grid takes advantage of being software defined storage to deliver a virtual controller specifically optimized for Veeam to deliver:

  • Superior random I/O performance
  • Scalability on demand
  • Speedy RTO/RPO
  • 100% fault tolerance and reliability
  • Affordability

"With the Grid's unique architecture and virtual controller technology - we are able to deliver optimized storage for Veeam that enables a truly end-to-end backup solution companies need to simplify the complexity and management of their backup processes," said Kelly Murphy, CEO of Gridstore. "Veeam delivers the speed and ease of use customers need for their VM data protection. When paired with The Grid, customers can now also benefit from truly scalable storage targets so that the true performance and value of Veeam Backup & Replication can be realized."

Veeam Backup & Replication provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualized applications and data for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments. Veeam Backup & Replication combined with The Grid delivers faster, more reliable backups, supporting superior recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO).

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
