Pivot3 Serverless Computing Wins LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award for Best Virtualization Solution
Pivot3, Inc, the market leader in High-Definition Storage, announced today that the Pivot3 Serverless Computing technology has received the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Award for "Best Virtualization Solution." The awards were presented at last week's LinuxWorld and Next-Generation Data Center (NGDC) Conference & Expo in San Francisco, where a group of respected industry experts managed by recognized product and service innovations presented by the shows exhibitors. Pivot3 Serverless Computing is based on the companys award-winning RAIGE (RAID across Gigabit Ethernet) architecture.

Pivot3 Serverless Computing allows customers to absorb compute-intensive workloads, now performed using stand-alone application servers, into Pivot3s x86-based storage nodes. This will result in significant improvements to server consolidation acquisition costs, power consumption, heat generation, and rack space, enabling environments that have not been considered good candidates for conventional server virtualization deployments until now.

It is incredibly exciting to see the technical community embrace the Pivot3 Serverless Computing while we are spreading the word about its end-user benefits, said Lee Caswell, a founder and chief marketing officer of Pivot3. This award confirms the elegant simplicity of combining conventional server virtualization with storage virtualization to eliminate physical servers and pass the power, cooling and cost savings along to the customer.
