Mountain View, CA, December 05, 2012 -- Gridstore™, the leader in
software defined storage solutions, today announced that the company has
received the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Global award in recognition
of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia,
celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their
respective industries.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for
identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring
editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as
Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and
eBay would change the way we live and work.

“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a
small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After
rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from
hundreds of candidates from across Global to the Top 100 winners. We
believe Gridstore embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a
successful entrepreneurial venture. Gridstore should be proud of its
accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”

Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both
quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance,
technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market
penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of
the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers,
allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable
instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business
models from around the world.

Businesses of all sizes are suffering from the explosion of data growth.
With this, the cost is also exploding and it becomes impossible to scale
efficiently with legacy architectures. Gridstore addresses the influx of
data that traditional monolithic architectures have not been able to
solve. The company is first to market with an advanced grid-based,
software-defined scale-out storage platform that scales as a business’s
data needs scale - no overprovisioning, no wasted capacity. The Grid
revolutionizes the way users manage their storage, and seamlessly
integrates into an organization’s existing environment. Gridstore
delivers a simple, powerful and affordable storage solution that scales
dynamically with customer needs. With its pay-as-you-go sales model,
customers can seamlessly integrate the Grid into their environment
without forklift upgrades or disruption to their business. It delivers
unprecedented scalability, fault-tolerance, high performance and resource
efficiencies that can’t be matched by other solutions available to the
mid-size enterprise market.
“Being recognized by Red Herring as a Top 100 Global award recipient is
further validation of our innovative approach to solving the storage
challenges facing businesses of all sizes,” said Kelly Murphy, CEO of
Gridstore. “The 30 year old monolithic storage systems of yesteryear no
longer work. Today’s businesses demand a solution that can meet their
requirements in performance, scalability and efficiency. Gridstore has
architected a truly disruptive technology that delivers a simple,
powerful and affordable storage offering that will scale with their
business requirements today and in the future.”
