Gridstore Accelerate Partner Program Adds Business Technology Architects as Certified Member

Leading Regional Technology Architect to Now Deliver Cost-Effective, Scalable Storage Solutions for Mid-Market Customers

Online PR News – 21-November-2012 – ROSWELL, GA – ROSWELL, GA, –- Business Technology Architects (BTA), one of the Southeast region’s most innovative strategic technology architects, today announced that it has joined the Gridstore Accelerate Partner Program. As a certified Gridstore partner, BTA will be expanding its storage portfolio for the mid-sized business with Gridstore’s simple, powerful and affordable, storage solution.

Unlike traditional NAS-based storage solutions, Gridstore delivers a uniquely scalable approach to storage that is both reliable and cost effective. By virtualizing storage nodes, Gridstore is able to optimize storage resources with a scalable architecture that can grow as needed with business demands. This eliminates islands of storage to manage, and simplifies migrations and upgrades for an out-of-the-box experience that is ideal for the mid-size enterprise.

“Gridstore is a great addition to our portfolio,” said Ken Fee, CEO, BTA, “Today, mid-tier organizations spend more per gigabyte on storage than large enterprises because they don’t have the leverage. And, many times the lifecycle costs, including services, are just too costly for mid-market companies. Gridstore eliminates this challenge by delivering enterprise-class, scalable storage that is easy to deploy, cost effective to maintain, and simple to manage.”

“Business Technology Architects understands that IT architecture is a multiple disciplinary process that requires expertise across multiple technology silos and they take a global perspective across these specializations to deliver solutions with true IT alignment,” said Kelly Murphy, CEO of Gridstore. “They are experts in matching IT architecture and service delivery to business objectives. We are very pleased to have them as an authorized member of our partner program and we look forward to jointly delivering the storage solutions our mutual customers can implement easily today and grow with tomorrow.”
