Pivot3 Sees Rapid Growth in Hyperconverged Infrastructure Business
As Ron Nash sees it, #Pivot3 has been offering hyperconverged infrastructure products for several years. The company, founded in 2003, began selling software-defined story products, and several years later added processing to the mix, with many customers using the technology for surveillance workloads and virtual desktop environments. However, several years ago, OEMs began offering converged infrastructure solutions—appliances with tightly integrated compute, storage, networking and management software—to help businesses better manage the changing demands brought on by such trends as cloud computing, mobility, data analytics and the internet of things (IoT). More recently, #hyperconverged infrastructures—which include storage and compute functionalities being combined into a single, highly virtualized server-based offering—have emerged.
