Pivot3 Brings Its HCI Technology To VMware vSphere 6
Pivot3 announced that it would be bringing its hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) technology to VMware vSphere 6. The combination of the two technologies can accelerate time to value for organizations that utilize it. Solutions will be deployed faster, at lower costs, without the need for specialized expertise and increased CPU power to run advanced VMware vSphere 6 features.
vSphere 6 is the industry-leading virtualization platform for the hybrid cloud and the foundation for the software-defined data center. Pivot3 latest software, vSTAC OS 7, is now built on a foundation of VMware vSphere 6 that enables GPU virtualization, higher fault tolerance, and greater availability on Pivot3’s HCI platforms.
Pivot3 is also releasing a vSTAC OS Management Client Integration Plug-In that integrates with vSphere 6 Web Client interface and enables users to manage their Pivot3 array of nodes from a central console. Pivot3’s new streamlined dashboard gives VMware server administrators and application owners with an easy-to-manage status view and control console for the combined Pivot3 virtual SAN and compute environment. Pivot3 is also supporting End User Computing licensing of VMware Horizon 6 for desktop virtualization.
Pivot3 has been a supporter of VMware since 2008. This long-standing partnership enables Pivot3 to build the release above as well as support for VMware Horizon and VMware Mirage. Pivot3 is also a top tier sponsor of VMware User Group and VMware vForum.
