Converged server and storage appliance highlighted for cost savings, reduced complexity for mid-market surveillance deployments

AUSTIN, Texas, April 7, 2016 — Pivot3, a pioneer and innovator in the development of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), announced today that it has been honored with the Gold-level Government Security Award for its Edge Protect hyperconverged SAN storage solution for mid-sized and remotely distributed surveillance applications.

The award program, presented by industry trade publication Security Products, recognizes outstanding products that address security and operational challenges in the government market. A panel of esteemed judges review technologies based on innovation, unique features, reliability, market opportunity and overall impact on the security landscape.

Edge Protect was selected as a top honoree in the video surveillance storage category and specifically chosen for its ability to deliver enterprise-class IT capabilities to mid-market applications. Edge Protect enables users to realize the benefits of highly efficient shared storage and built-in failover without the complexity or cost typically associated with infrastructure based on separate servers and SAN storage.

“Edge Protect brings significant value to end users that could not previously afford this level of functionality, and provides channel partners with a major edge in winning deals that they may have lost without a solution in this segment,” said Brandon Reich, Senior Director of Surveillance Solutions, Pivot3. “This award provides further assurance that Pivot3 delivers a valuable storage solution to government entities, allowing users in this market to securely capture critical video and data to ensure robust security operations.”
