AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pivot3, the technology leader in hyperconverged infrastructure solutions for the software-defined datacenter, announced today that Info-Tech Research Group named Pivot3 an Innovator in its Vendor Landscape: Hyperconverged Infrastructure report.
Pivot3 was the only HCI vendor to receive the Exemplary rating – the highest possible mark – in the overall product evaluation. The features evaluated include Pivot3’s VVol support, scale-out capacity, Quality of Service (QoS) and data locality. The company also received Exemplary ratings for its strategy and data protection capabilities.
“Pivot3’s vSTAC SLX solutions excel at meeting the needs of demanding workloads with the help of QoS and ultra low latency,” stated the report. “Compatible with a wide variety of leading disaster recovery and business continuity software, Pivot3 leverages its patented scalar erasure coding to deliver efficient and scalable data protection that does not require a 1-to-1 replication of data.”
Pivot3 launched vSTAC SLX in 2016, leveraging technology gained from its acquisition of PCIe flash array and QoS innovator NexGen Storage. Later that year, it added additional data protection capabilities to provide more robust policy-based management.
“As IT evolves to move more application workloads, including mission critical, onto HCI, a smart infrastructure with policy-based management will be key to guaranteeing predictable business outcomes,” said Ron Nash, CEO of Pivot3. “We’re honored to be named an Innovator, and remain committed to providing a pathway to the software-defined datacenter with the best performance, scale and efficiency.”
