Gartner analysts evaluated 19 integrated systems vendors based on the criteria of “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.” Pivot3 believes the positioning as Visionary from one of the industry’s leading analyst firms further validates the company’s technology, architecture and commitment to providing comprehensive solutions for today’s highly virtualized environments and enterprise data centers to improve operational efficiencies, lower costs and meet the diverse needs of infrastructure and operations teams.

“We believe our position on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems is a testament to our mission of unlocking the potential of the software-defined data center with innovative and smarter infrastructure solutions,” said Ron Nash, CEO of Pivot3. “Pivot3 is growing at a rapid pace, and we continue to deliver new products with innovative features to meet the evolving needs of the data center. Unlike other hyperconverged solutions, our true, distributed scale-out architecture and Dynamic Quality of Service capabilities allow customers to run multiple, mixed workloads with confidence and perform at scale, enabling businesses to deploy HCI at their own pace while still leveraging their existing legacy system applications.”

According to Gartner, “by 2019, approximately 30 percent of the global storage array capacity installed in enterprise data centers will be deployed on software-defined storage (SDS) or hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) architectures based on x86 hardware systems, up from less than 5 percent today.”

In the first half of 2016, Pivot3 increased revenue by 103 percent, added over 400 new customers and expanded its workforce by more than 40 percent. The company also raised $55 million in financing shortly after the acquisition of high-performance storage vendor NexGen. In June, Pivot3 launched vSTAC SLX, the first joint product combining Pivot3’s vSTAC hyperconverged solution with NexGen’s flash arrays and Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS) management software.

“Pivot3’s architecture allows companies to deploy and scale out infrastructure based on business priorities,” said Bill Galloway, founder and CTO of Pivot3. “Additionally, Pivot3 has the most advanced storage QoS capabilities in hyperconverged infrastructure. That, combined with our scalability, ease-of-use and advanced erasure coding algorithms, delivers consistently high levels of performance and reliability.”
