PCIe Flash Storage Arrays

Manage performance of applications
without the burden of complex overhead

Pivot3 provides innovative all-flash and hybrid flash arrays that deliver predictable performance and better economics through an innovative architecture that leverages PCIe flash and advanced storage Quality of Service (QoS). Unlike other arrays that treat all data the same, Pivot3’s dynamic storage QoS governs performance targets, I/O prioritization and data placement, allowing you to meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Pivot3 flash arrays deliver the predictable application performance your end-users require, along with industry-leading performance, density and management simplicity.

Engineered for Performance with PCIe Flash Architecture

PCIe-flash integration means flash is closest to RAM and CPU on each storage processor for lowest latency performance. Our innovative multi-tier architecture is designed to encompass RAM, PCIe-flash, SSDs and HDDs storage tiers, as well as future media types, all managed by Storage QoS to deliver on your application SLAs.

 

Dynamic Quality of Service

Pivot3’s Dynamic QoS allows business to meet application SLAs with easy to manage policies that provision performance, prioritize workloads, and manage data placement and protection. With the ability to automate and schedule granular QoS settings, from a LUN/datastore level down to an individual VM/VMDK, Dynamic QoS significantly reduces the time it takes to manage performance and data protection.

Align Storage Performance with Business Priorities

Management Simplicity

Manage via web and CLI, as well as converged management within VMware vCenter Server that simplifies storage management for virtualization administrators. In-depth performance metrics and analytics provide real-time intelligence for insight and decision making. All features are included at no additional cost, including data protection with integrated snapshot and replication

Prioritize What Matters Most

Align each workload’s performance to its business value with simple to apply, policy-based prioritization. Set targets that govern prioritization and automated data placement, all at a level of granularity that
matches the dataset — either the LUN/datastore level or down to the individual VM/VMDK level.

Data Reduction Technologies

Three powerful data reduction technologies provides I/O reduction for a 2.5x performance, I/O consolidation for 4x flash endurance and inline data reduction for a 2:1 capacity reduction.
