This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2016.07.26
Gridstore, Inc., in hyper-converged all flash infrastructure, and DCHQ, a technology that deploys and manages existing enterprise and new cloud-native applications seamlessly across any cloud or container infrastructure, have merged to launch a new company, HyperGrid, Inc., headquartered in Mountain View, CA.
HyperGrid delivers an HyperConverged Infrastructure-as-a-Service (HCIaaS), an application aware offering that brings the simplicity and ease-of-use of HCI together with a pay-as-you-consume pricing model that scales elastically.
HCIaaS is a solution that bridges the needs of traditional and cloud-native developers with IT operations, delivering an AWS-like environment for enterprise that enables complete DevOps.
"Customers are demanding that vendors deliver app-centric, app-optimized, and app-aware infrastructure as-a-service with no upfront cost. They want to be able to use their choice of hypervisor, container or bare metal and they want the ability to build, deploy, update and manage applications at a push of a button," said Nariman Teymourian, chairman and CEO, HyperGrid. "Our solution gives customers what they have been asking for - an enterprise-grade platform for innovation that is simple to use, agile and scales elastically with a pay-as-you consume pricing model. Customers will now be able to achieve all the benefits of the cloud, without being locked in to a specific vendor."
DCHQ has developed technology in automated life-cycle management, governance and orchestration for containerized cloud-native and traditional enterprise applications. As an industry first, DCHQ technology containerizes existing traditional applications, allowing enterprises for the first time the ability to automate the deployment and management of both traditional and cloud-native applications seamlessly across any cloud or container infrastructure - including Docker, Mesosphere, vSphere, KVM, Hyper-V, bare metal, OpenStack, OVH, AWS, Microsoft Azure. DCHQ enables complete, automated end-to-end life cycle management and governance from development to production at the push of a button. DCHQ offers both an on-prem and hosted PaaS solution.
Thousands of users have deployed DCHQ's technology, which currently supports over 50,000+ containers and 2000+ VMs.
"We are thrilled to have DCHQ be an integral technology for HyperGrid," said Amjad Afanah, CEO and co-founder, DCHQ. "HyperGrid solves a real pain point for our customers struggling with innovation in the digital economy. Our combined platform will dramatically simplify IT operations and help enterprises deliver applications faster and cheaper than going to the public cloud."
Gridstore was founded in 2009 by Kelly Murphy, Antoni Sawicki and Tomasz Nowak.
DCHQ was founded in 2015 by Amjad Afanah and Intesar Mohammed. All Gridstore and DCHQ founders remain in key technical roles at HyperGrid.
