Pivot3, an early pioneer in hyperconvergence, launched its first HCI solution in 2008 and has continued to shape the next-generation datacenter with a rich legacy in product innovation.

In April 2017, Pivot3 launched the Acuity HCI platform, the industry’s first and only hyperconverged platform to feature a multi-tier architecture with an NVMe flash datapath governed by an advanced, policy-based quality of service engine and seventh-generation erasure coding. This brings predictable performance by supporting and scaling any workload on a common infrastructure. Pivot3 Acuity also provides breakthrough application performance and a faster ROI by supporting more workloads on less hardware.

“We are pleased to receive the 2017 GEC award for most Innovative Vendor in Hyperconverged Infrastructure,” said Anand Chakravarthi, area vice president of MEA sales at Pivot3. “This award is a testament to our commitment to our channel partners and to supporting this region with the best technology in the industry. Our next-generation Acuity HCI platform is ahead of the market with lower costs, improved efficiency, automated use of resources and better application performance. We look forward to bringing that advantage to customers throughout the Middle East and beyond.”
