Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Smarter Infrastructure for VDI

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) can directly address the issues of scalability, cost and performance by collapsing the traditionally siloed tiers of infrastructure to modular building blocks based on industry-standard hardware. By combining compute, storage, networking and virtualization, HCI eliminates infrastructure complexities and simplifies
infrastructure management. Pivot3’s cost-effective, high performance HCI solutions for VDI, powered by its efficient vSTAC operating environment, provide organizations with a cost-effective solution that delivers consistent user experience and simplifies the transition from pilot to full-scale.

Key Advantages

Best Cost per Desktop

Twice as many desktops per node with market-leading density at half the required infrastructure

Superior End-User Experience

Exceptional performance via resource aggregation and hypervisor pass-through with no impact from IO storms

Simple Scalability

Linearly scale capacity, performance and throughput to seamlessly transition from pilot to full-scale and simplify growth planning

Flexible Deployment

Choose from a broad selection of form factors that are all validated and optimized with a rich ecosystem of technology partners

Features

Self-Healing Virtual Desktops

Systems restart automatically in the case of appliance failures, with failover and migration of virtual desktops managed through VMware vCenter

High Availability Storage

Shared storage and compute resources across the array create highly available storage volumes that exist on all drives, with up to five drive fault tolerance without compromising existing data stores

 

Automatic Load-Balancing

Resources are automatically load-balanced across all nodes so performance is effortlessly delivered to desktops that are exerting the highest demand

 

Industry-Leading Capacity

Start with a single node with 2.1TB of usable storage capacity and scale up to 1.4PB of usable capacity at 94% efficiency within a single Virtual Performance Group, aggregating usable capacity, efficiency and performance as you scale
