Pivot3 Solutions from Arrow ECS
Converged systems are the go-to alternative to complex piece-part infrastructure, sparking a $17.8B global market opportunity for systems that combine computing, data storage and networking functionalities in an appliance model.
HCI is a technological development that is causing fundamental shifts in the IT sector, and Pivot3 is pioneering this innovation.
Today, almost all providers of hyper-converged solutions achieve data protection using a very conventional, decidedly 20th century methodology: making copies through data replication. If a drive fails and the data becomes inaccessible, the user can read the replicated data to ensure nothing is lost.
Welcome to 21st century storage and compute solutions! By implementing patented Scalar Erasure Coding, Pivot3 developed vSTAC OS, a software platform that saves an extraordinary amount of storage space and ensures fault tolerance without making dumb copies of data. With global hyper-convergence, all hard drives within a cluster act as a SAN that also has computing power. vSTAC OS allows any program running on one appliance within the cluster to access resources across all the appliances in the cluster. This allows high-order data protection that leaves almost all the storage space still available.
Pivot3’s global hyper-convergence solutions break the longstanding trade-off between available storage capacity and data protection. Through Scalar Erasure Coding, Pivot3 provide the highest levels of fault tolerance and the highest storage efficiencies at a cost far below that of local hyper-convergence providers. And because vSTAC OS software is fully tested and configured with factory install options, it’s ready to go out of the box, saving significant time and resources for our users.
Today, the company has over 1,200 customers across the globe, for a total of over 12,000 appliances, and more than 220PB of overall installed storage. Pivot3 customers rely on purpose-built appliances for high-capacity video surveillance and high-IOP virtual desktop environments. The company is the leading supplier of IP SANs to the video surveillance market and most recently became the first partner certified in VMware’s Rapid Desktop Program for virtual desktops. Customers rely on Pivot3 for simplicity, scalability and savings
