Gridstore™, the leader in scale-out NAS solutions for the SMB market, today announced its expanded partner ecosystem as demand for its Scale-out NAS solutions accelerate worldwide. Featuring a proven four step partner building process that includes tools and support for prospecting, recruiting, activating and growing new clients, the Gridstore Partner Program offers both managed service providers (MSPs) and value added resellers (VARs) the resources they need to successfully capitalize on the expansive storage opportunity in the small-to-mid-sized business (SMB) market.

The NAS market is expected to exceed $6 Billion by 2014, according to the IDC Worldwide Enterprise Storage Systems forecast. The SMB market is poised to take a significant share of this market with products like the Grisdstore Scale-out NAS solution that eliminates silos of traditional NAS and delivers the performance, reliability and scalability that organizations demand. The Gridstore offering is integrated with the Microsoft Windows Management Console and requires no storage expertise to implement, or manage. As a result, MSPs and VARs can leverage existing skill sets to deliver a comprehensive storage solution for SMBs with enterprise-class capabilities at half the cost of standalone NAS offerings.

“SMBs are facing the same storage challenges as larger enterprises, but don’t have the resources or budget to effectively manage their 24/7 operations,” said Kelly Murphy, CEO, Gridstore. “If storage stops their business stops and this is a risk they can’t afford. “Gridstore is addressing this major market gap by providing an enterprise-class, scale-out NAS solution customers need with the simplicity and reliability they require. Expanding our channel partner ecosystem is an important component of our distribution model to help us rapidly advance market availability and gives MSPs and VARs a turnkey solution for the SMB market.”

Most SMBs run on standalone storage that has a single point of failure and if the storage system stops – their business stops. Using the Gridstore offering, MSPs and VARs can deliver a powerful NAS storage grid for SMBs that eliminates storage sprawl and multiple single points of failure while reducing the cost of standalone NAS solutions at unprecedented price points. The Gridstore storage platform is designed to eliminate the risk, cost and complexity of traditional silo-based storage and gives SMBs a “Pay as you Grow” pricing model that allows organizations to add storage as needed to eliminate the high cost of over provisioning and managing storage resources - while minimizing the reliability and risk of multiple NAS storage silos.

The Gridstore Partner Program
Gridstore supports its Scale-out NAS solution with a comprehensive partner program to fuel its partners’ success throughout the entire customer lifecycle. The Gridstore Partner Program is designed to offer end-to-end support for MSPs and VARs looking to drive increased revenues by capitalizing on the increasing SMB customer demand for high availability storage solutions. Members of the Gridstore Partner Program receive innovative marketing and financial initiatives including resources, tools and support for prospecting, recruiting, activating and delivering new turnkey storage solutions to their customer base. Components of the program include deal registration and protection, co-funded demand generation opportunities and professional services.
