Pivot3 Named a Strong Performer in Independent Evaluation on Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Pivot3 was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in The Forrester Wave: Hyperconverged Infrastructure, Q3 2018. In this evaluation, Pivot3 was cited as a Strong Performer in Hyperconverged Infrastructure, achieving the highest scores possible for the criteria of built-in security, customer support options and quality of operations and support.

To assess the state of the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) market, Forrester researched, analyzed and scored the 11 most significant vendors based on their strengths in HCI current offering, strategy and market presence. According to the report, the HCI market "is growing because more I&O professionals see hyperconverged infrastructure as a way to address their top challenges. This market growth is in large part due to the fact that I&O pros increasingly trust HCI providers to act as strategic partners, advising them on top infrastructure-related decisions ... As previous-generation technology becomes outdated and less effective, improved scalability, reliability and ease of operation will dictate which providers will lead the pack. Vendors that provide a reliable, scalable infrastructure that I&O pros can easily manage themselves will position their firms to deliver successfully to their customers."

Ranked within the top three vendors in the current offering category, Pivot3 was cited for:

  • "Customers give high ratings for its product, solution, focus, and customer service, all of which the company achieves by focusing on fundamentals."
  • "Its Acuity Cloud Edition simplifies the use of public cloud for backup and recovery by running Pivot3 Acuity software as an Amazon machine image on AWS. It integrates with the Pivot3 management application and enables single-pane-of-glass management of on-premises and cloud deployments. It allows administrators to easily schedule and manage data protection to and from private and public clouds."
  • "One of the first vendors to implement storage QoS in its HCI solution."
  • "Consistent and predictable flash performance using NVMe flash and supports both cache and persistent storage tiers."

"We are pleased to be named among the top vendors in the HCI space, as well as a company ranked within the top three vendors in the current offering category," said Ron Nash, CEO of Pivot3. "It's our view that to achieve this ranking from one of the industry's leading analyst firms affirms our traction in market and our customers' confidence that they have selected the right partner for delivering intelligent hybrid cloud and IoT solutions. We believe this is also strong validation that Pivot3 continues to deliver innovative solutions for mission-critical environments where security, resilience and scale are a priority."
