Verdict in: Gridstore Brings Meyers Nave the Performance, Capacity, and Value Needed to Support Its LexisNexis Environment

Software-Defined Storage Solution Supports State-of-the-Art Technology Housing Vast Amounts of Critical Legal Data

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Gridstore™, a leader in software-defined storage (SDS) purpose-built and optimized for Windows Servers and Hyper-V, today announced that Meyers Nave, a leading-edge law firm on the forefront of numerous emerging legal matters in the State of California has adopted its high-performance storage nodes to warehouse large volumes of client supplied electronically stored information (ESI). Meyers Nave chose Gridstore to address a challenge that is unique to law practices: the need for robust support for a LexisNexis Evolution document review system that securely hosts vast stores of litigation and discovery data for large-scale online document reviews.

The patented Gridstore solution provides the ability to increase overall storage capacity by adding nodes nearly on the fly at a highly competitive price / performance point. The innovative storage is the keystone in a Hyper-V environment hosting numerous Microsoft SQL Server databases as well as tens of thousands of unstructured files. The Gridstore installation at Meyers Nave has brought with it several benefits, including speed, scale, and most importantly, value.

"In high-stakes litigation, there is a massive amount of electronic information and it historically resided across a farm of servers at the firm. Because of the immense volume of client legal data, the demands for storage are extremely high and constantly in flux given the unpredictability of client traffic," said Matthew Reynolds, top technologist at Meyers Nave. "My objective was to consolidate the ESI sprawl while elevating overall capacity, speed, reliability, and reducing costs. While not new to contemporary storage solutions, I explored traditional options, but found them to be too expensive. It was only natural for me to take a close look at Gridstore since their approach and architecture were sensible for Meyers Nave."

"Gridstore has a rich feature set, which is not unique to high-end storage vendors, but unique is the price point and resiliency offered by Gridstore. If one drive, or even an entire storage node fails, with Gridstore's 'striping' redundancy, their system still keeps business operations alive."

Reynolds added, "Gridstore proved to be the ideal solution for Meyers Nave. It is incredibly resilient, solved our performance challenges, and was highly cost-effective and customer and engineering support provided from Gridstore is 'second to none.' On top of these other benefits, Gridstore eliminates the I/O bottlenecks found on virtualized servers, further improving overall performance."
