Pivot3 Named a Leader in Independent
Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Report

Pivot3 named a Leader based on scores in Current Offering, Market Presence, and Strategy categories.

AUSTIN, Texas – Aug. 16, 2016 – Pivot3, a pioneer and innovator in the development of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, today announced that is has been cited as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), Q3 2016. Pivot3 was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its Wave for Hyperconverged Infrastructure. In this evaluation, Pivot3 achieved the highest score possible for high availability and data protection, manageability and ease of operations, and client feedback on support quality.

Forrester’s rigorous process places vendors in one of four designations – Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders, and Challengers – evaluating each vendor’s strengths and weaknesses in their Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence. Pivot3 was cited for its “efficient and very scalable data protection technology,” and for “space-efficient data protection [that] may reduce costs.” Pivot3 was one of only three companies evaluated in the report to be named a Leader.

Pivot3’s smarter infrastructure solutions help IT organizations efficiently consolidate and operate multiple virtualized workloads in a scalable, dynamic hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) model. This reduces complexity and cost while at the same time maximizing performance and availability to meet multiple workload requests. Effectively consolidating multiple workloads on a single infrastructure requires efficiency, resiliency, scalability, performance, and the ability to prioritize what applications matter most when there is contention for resources. “Pivot3 is a strong candidate, especially if requirements include PB-scale data storage, where its space-efficient data protection may reduce costs,” according to the report.

“We are delighted that Forrester has named Pivot3 as a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure,” said Ron Nash, CEO of Pivot3. “It is our view that to achieve this ranking from one of the industry’s leading analyst firms affirms our customers’ confidence that they have selected the right partner for their journey to the software-defined data center. We believe this validation is strong evidence that we are delivering a comprehensive solution for today’s highly virtualized environments that scales to enterprise volumes, improves operational efficiencies and meets the diverse needs of today’s infrastructure and operations teams, and most importantly, works as advertised.”

Pivot3 allows organizations of all sizes to realize the economics and simplicity of hyperconvergence and to guarantee the performance of critical business services with Dynamic Quality of Service. According to “The Total Economic Impact™ Of Pivot3 Hyperconverged Infrastructure,” an August 2016 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Pivot3, Pivot3 delivers increased storage and compute power to users, savings on hardware, and reduced management by IT resources resulting in a return on investment of 103 percent, with a payback period of just seven months.
