Pivot3 Announces its Hyper-Converged Blade Appliance

Pivot3 announced its Hyper-Converged Blade Appliance, an innovative solution that vastly simplifies modular VDI deployments for customers who want to achieve enterprise scalability with a very large number of users without the increased complexity and cost of external storage architectures. The Pivot3 blade appliance uses Pivot3's vSTAC OS software to define and control a common pool of storage capacity for all virtual machines, and to create a hyper-converged infrastructure that seamlessly fuses storage, compute and networking resources for a high-quality desktop experience. When implemented with Dell M820 Blades, the Pivot3 blade appliance delivers significantly increased density resulting in a reduced physical footprint with lower rack space requirements while achieving maximum performance and protection for dynamically scaled desktop deployments. The Pivot3 blade appliance uses the inherent energy efficiency of blades to support sustainable business practices with lower energy usage and lower cooling needs. Benefits of Pivot3 vSTAC HCIA blade-based appliance: Supports up to 10,000 virtual desktops in a single rack, 4x density improvement over conventional servers. This smaller footprint makes scale-out operations more efficient. Combines compute, networking and storage resources into a single, efficient, self-contained structure. There are no storage bottlenecks with Pivot3's unique grid connected local storage. Maximizes CPU, memory and network utilization rates of the blade array as the Pivot3 platform dynamically aggregates, load-balances and optimizes storage, compute and network resources ensuring optimal performance. Delivers up to 20% reduction in energy costs through power saving efficiency of the blade design. Combines the scale-out flexibility of hyper-converged solutions with the investment protection of blades. Pivot3's entry in the VDI market with its vSTAC appliances, more than two years ago, has generated strong interest from users intent on harnessing the full power of virtualization. The Pivot3 vSTAC R2S P-Cubed starter appliance was introduced to allow organizations to deploy a pilot environment of 100+ desktops in under one hour, while eliminating the storage sizing and configuration challenges commonly associated with VDI deployments. The Pivot3 solution is designed for easy scaling through simple addition of vSTAC R2S appliances. The fail-safe nature of the vSTAC technology and the single point of control administration presents compelling value for VDI users.

Pivot3 Unveils Virtual Security Console

Pivot3 announced the introduction of the Pivot3 Virtual Security Console, designed to allow users to deliver secure SOC capabilities at any time, in any location. The Pivot3 Virtual Security Console (VSC) allows users to flexibly deliver secure, centralized video management capabilities at any time and any place without deploying additional expensive, graphics-enabled PCs. This unique approach permits VMS administration to be managed either on-site or remotely, and brings significant cost savings by allowing the use of existing PCs or thin clients for security monitoring purposes. The infrastructure enhances mobility by offering access to VMS permissions through any Web-enabled device, including mobile phones and tablets. The solution is completely scalable and designed to meet the demanding needs of markets such as corrections, casinos, retail and manufacturing or any environment in which secure viewing is a priority. VSC appliances are designed to easily integrate with an existing vSTAC Watch array but can also be deployed outside vSTAC Watch arrays or alongside competitive solutions. The appliances are optimized to deliver an enhanced viewing experience through hardware graphics acceleration using Teradici APEX card for CPU offload and NVDIA GRID K1 card for GPU offload. The Teradici APEX reduces CPU overhead by offloading the most active 100 virtual displays to ensure its capabilities are used where most needed. NVIDIA GRID technology delivers the ability to offload graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in virtualized environments, allowing users to achieve graphics-rich experiences. The release of the VSC appliance follows Pivot3's recent upgrade of its vSTAC OS, which fuses shared storage, networking and virtual servers. Pivot3 vSTAC OS defines, creates and virtualizes all physical storage including SSD and hard drives across an array into a common pool of RAID-protected SAN storage. It features a non-disruptive, fully integrated maintenance capability that enables administrators to dynamically upgrade and manage appliances while maintaining virtual server and storage availability. Virtual machines are allocated to other appliances within the array to ensure continued performance and flexibility, that enhances data and video protection.
