Turn simple building blocks into powerful storage.
The Grid eliminates the cost and complexity of mainframe like monolithic storage that has added layers of complexity since its inception almost three decades ago. Instead of complexity, the Grid scales through simplicity. The Grid turns simple building blocks into powerful storage without limits.
Simple building blocks — add as many as you need to any Ethernet network for storage without limits.
As easily as you deploy PCs and servers in your network, now you can deploy powerful storage in minutes without having a degree in storage. Now you can focus on adding value to your business while eliminating the need for disruptive and high-risk forklift upgrades.
Zero complexity. All you need is in the box.
The Grid designed out all the things you don’t need and eliminates the overhead with traditional cluster based scale-out architectures.
- No backplane, physical controllers or load balancers
- No Clustered File systems or Cluster Managers
- No three-way replicas to manage
Everything you need in a box. A simple, powerful and affordable solution that allows you to scale as your business scales. We eliminate planning and forecasting for the unknown. Simply buy what you need and pay as you grow.
An MMC snap-in that seamlessly integrates the tools you already use every day such as your Active Directory and Policy Manager.
The Grid is seamlessly integrated as a Microsoft Management Console snap-in, allowing you to holistically manage and monitor your storage alongside everything else in your network.
The Grid integrates with Active Directory’s users, groups and structures to ensure there is no duplicated information that needs to be synced. The Grid will enforce the policies and access controls you already have established. AD resources are granted access to volumes you create, which are then actively enforced throughout your domain controllers/Windows security.
No need to maintain separate management for AD. All your policies are set and enforced from one place so you do not have to duplicate your efforts.
Auto-Pilot — let the Grid work for you.
Auto-Pilot is intelligent software distributed throughout the Grid to monitor, manage and protect the Grid. Through GridControl, you first set policies and then add any number of nodes to your network. Auto-Pilot will auto-provision, auto-configure, auto-distribute, auto-expand and auto-heal, eliminating routine tasks and turns emergency events into planned maintenance.
Auto-Pilot also monitors real time alerts to warn administrators of performance or health issues in the Grid. Alerts can be sent via email and logged through WMI to Windows management console. GridControl provides monitoring analytics down to the node level to resolve any issues.
Auto-Pilot alleviates the stress of downtime, eliminates routine tasks and ensures security and protection of your data. No more downtime, no more disruption – the Grid works for you.
Zero business disruption for users.
Your end users simply see a network share – the same as they have used for many years. There is nothing new for them to learn and all apps work the same with it. The only difference they will experience will be that it’s faster and does not go offline.
FINALLY. STORAGE WITHOUT LIMITS.
