AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pivot3, the technology leader of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, today announced it has been awarded Security Today's 2017 New Product of the Year Award for its Pivot3 vSTAC 7.5.3. This version of Pivot3's HCI solution was selected for the award due to its ability to deliver enterprise-class IT functionality to the physical security market for video surveillance and related applications.
Security Today's annual award program honors the outstanding technology achievements over the past year from a wide array of submissions. Pivot3 was selected as the top entry in the Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Video Surveillance category for its ability to deliver robust performance, scalability and resiliency to its global customer base.
Recent updates to vSTAC include up to 50-percent performance improvements, increased networking and SSD options on Lenovo hardware nodes, and improved diagnostics to ensure protection of the system and the video data.
Pivot3 HCI solutions aggregate storage, compute, networking and virtualization resources from multiple servers into a single unified platform that maximizes performance and storage capacity utilization. Because video surveillance is mission critical to a majority of organizations, typical video storage solutions, such as NVRs, are being replaced by more modern, resilient IT solutions, including HCI, to deliver comprehensive data and video protection.
Designed for demanding workloads, including virtual desktop infrastructure, data center modernization, big data analytics and video surveillance, Pivot3 HCI platforms deliver industry-leading resilience, which is critical in environments where compliance and data storage is of paramount importance. If multiple hardware failures occur, servers remain online, and previously recorded data is protected and accessible. Additionally, customers can access video from any VMS and other integrated systems at any time, from any device.
"Pivot3 redefined storage options for surveillance deployments when we first entered this market and today, we're delivering the same level of sophistication across a wide array of market segments beyond security," said Brandon Reich, video surveillance practice leader, Pivot3. "As we expand our reach, we continue to strive to ensure surveillance users can experience the benefits of IT innovations to ensure critical security systems are optimized and video data is always protected."
Pivot3 improves the simplicity and economics of the enterprise datacenter with industry-leading hyperconverged infrastructure technology. By combining storage, compute, and networking on commodity hardware, Pivot3's software-defined platforms let IT run multiple, mixed workloads on a single infrastructure while guaranteeing performance to the applications that matter most. Pivot3's agile infrastructure solutions extend performance, scale and efficiency across more of the datacenter so organizations can adapt to modern business demands. With over 2,000 customers in 54 countries, and 18,000 deployments in multiple industries such as healthcare, government, transportation, security, entertainment, education, gaming and retail, Pivot3 is redefining HCI with smarter infrastructure solutions.
