Pivot3 Brings its Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Technology to VMware vSphere

Del

Pivot3, a pioneer and innovator in the development of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), today announced it will bring its HCI technology to VMware vSphere® 6.

VMware vSphere 6 is the industry-leading virtualization platform for the hybrid cloud and the foundation for the software-defined data center. VMware vSphere 6 provides customers with a highly available, resilient, on-demand cloud infrastructure to run, protect and manage any application.

The newest edition of Pivot3’s patented vSTAC OS software, vSTAC OS 7 which uses patented Scalar Erasure Coding technology, is now built on a foundation of VMware vSphere 6 which enables GPU virtualization, higher fault tolerance and greater availability on Pivot3’s HCI platforms.

The upcoming release of the vSTAC OS Management Client Integration Plug-In integrates with the VMware vSphere 6 Web Client interface to enable users to manage their entire Pivot3 hyper-converged array of nodes which scales to petabytes of storage and millions of Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) – all from a central console.

Pivot3’s global hyper-converged infrastructure solution helps enterprises achieve low total cost of ownership by providing combined virtualized shared storage and compute power on the same platform, eliminating the need for separate physical storage area networks (SANs) and servers. The streamlined vSTAC OS 7 dashboard provides VMware server administrators and application owners with an easy-to-manage status view and control console for the combined Pivot3 virtual SAN and compute environment.

“Pivot3’s HCI provides the performance and high-availability of shared storage without the need for expensive external storage arrays,” said Ron Nash, CEO of Pivot3. “With Pivot3 global HCI, growing enterprises and organizations with multiple locations, such as remote or branch offices (ROBOs), can deploy critical applications and associated data onsite so that they are available at all times without needing access to company-wide networks.”

Pivot3 also supports End User Computing (EUC) licensing of VMware Horizon® 6 for desktop virtualization. VMware Horizon provides end-users access to all of their virtual desktops, applications and online services through a single workspace.

“Pivot3’s HCI with VMware vSphere 6 provides enterprise customers with a scale-out, distributed storage architecture,” said Howard Hall, senior director, Global Technology Partner Organization, VMware. “Pivot3's efficient, high-performance infrastructure combining storage and compute capabilities with VMware vSphere can accelerate time to value for organizations, which means that they can now deploy their solution much faster with less specialized expertise, all at a lower cost. The result is that customers can benefit from increased CPU power to more efficiently run advanced VMware vSphere 6 features.”

Pivot3, with its efficient and scalable HCI, has been a VMware supporter since 2008. The immediate support for VMware vSphere 6 builds on Pivot3’s longstanding partnership with VMware, which includes support for VMware Horizon and VMware Mirage™, as well as 100 percent reliance on VMware vSphere.

Pivot3 has 1,600 customers around the world. Enterprise customers who buy Pivot3 HCI also buy Enterprise and Enterprise Plus licenses from VMware. Pivot3 is also an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Technology Alliance Partner, and is a top tier sponsor of VMware User Group and VMware vForum.
