Gridstore, a Mountain View, Calif.-based provider of hyper-converged all flash infrastructure, secured $19m in funding.
The round was led by Atlantic Bridge Capital with participation from previous investors Acero Capital, GGV Capital and ONSET Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, Kevin Dillon, a general partner at Atlantic Bridge, joined Gridstore’s board of directors, while Nariman Teymourian, most recently senior vice president and general manager of the Converged Systems Division HPE, and prior to that CEO of Gale Technologies, joined as new board chair.
The company will use the funds to expand its international geographic coverage, partner recruitment programs, domestic and international sales teams as well as to increase engineering and product development initiatives.
