Gridstore is Software-Defined Storage. It uses patented Server-side Virtual Controller Technology (SVCT) to eliminate the I/O blender at the source, align storage to the virtual server model and accelerate application I/O for every VM.
SVCT virtualizes the traditional storage controller and moves it across the network to the application server. By operating in the application server, the virtual storage controller—or vController™ creates a virtual storage stack for each that isolates, optimizes and prioritizes I/O for each VM before it leaves the server.
A Gridstore GS-1000 10 TB system has a suggested price of $5,495.
