Breakthrough performance and simple, policybased management for smarter HCI solutions.
The Pivot3 Acuity hyperconverged infrastructure software platform is architected to overcome the performance, automation and consolidation limitations of conventional HCI solutions. With Acuity, Pivot3 supports the full range of the applications your business depends on, while delivering industry-leading scale and efficiency. An innovative combination of NVMe PCIe flash, advanced policy-based Quality of Service (QoS), erasure coding and a comprehensive set of data services allow organizations to expand the benefits of hyperconvergence across more of the datacenter. Now IT can consolidate diverse workloads on a common infrastructure, while delivering predictable performance to drive the applications that power business success.
Pivot3 hyperconverged infrastructure is powered by a multi-tier storage architecture, leveraging NVMe PCIe flash, RAM, SSD and HDD to deliver superior performance and cost-effective capacity. With NVMe PCIe flash delivering breakthrough performance over SSDs, the consolidation of latency sensitive applications on HCI is now possible. Pivot3's distributed scale-out architecture aggregates each node's capacity, IOPS, bandwidth and cache into highlyavailable resource pools that deliver storage performance to your applications.
Pivot3's simple, policy-based QoS framework takes the complexity out of performance and data protection management with policy automation and comprehensive data services. For instance, performance QoS is set by assigning one of five pre-set polices to each workload, without needing to know its exact performance details. For cyclical business operations like quarterly reporting, QoS scheduling is used to automate policy changes, making more performance available temporarily as needed. Along with performance polices, data protection QoS policies schedule snapshots and ensure that data protection is prioritized.
Having high performance storage alone is not enough; it must be applied where and when it counts for the applications most important to the business. Now IT can define performance levels for each workload in terms of minimum IOPS, throughput and latency with Pivot3's advanced QoS. To ensure predictability, Service Levels associated with each QoS policy prioritize performance resources, ensuring mission-critical workloads meet their SLAs, even during periods of resource contention or degraded mode conditions.
Efficient and Scalable
Most HCI solutions rely on replication for data protection, which sacrifices capacity for availability. Pivot3 provides the optimum combination of efficiency, protection, and performance that businesses need. Pivot3's advanced fault tolerance maintains performance during degraded mode conditions to sustain business operations. In addition to the efficiency of erasure coding, distributed scale-out architecture enables caching, bandwidth and IOPS, along with storage efficiency and capacity, to scale linearly simply by adding nodes to the cluster.
