Benefits of Virtualized Storage & Compute

Up to 94% of total installed capacity effectively available for storage.

Pre-validated system configuration.

Scalable, market-leading storage efficiency with exceptional fault tolerance.

Unified storage and compute in a hyperconverged environment starting with only one node.

Extremely low compute overhead to run vSTAC OS increases the density of virtual machines.

Distributed Scale-Out Architecture



vSTAC OS natively converges storage, compute and virtualization resources into a modular building block that can be rapidly deployed to run any enterprise application.


Introducing vSTAC OS 7.0 with New vSphere 6 Enabled Features

The newest edition of Pivot3’s patented vSTAC OS software is now built on a foundation of VMware vSphere® 6.0. The industry-leading virtualization platform empowers users to virtualize any application with confidence by redefining availability and simplifying the virtual data center. The result is a highly available, resilient, on-demand infrastructure that is the ideal foundation for the software-defined enterprise.

Pivot3’s efficient, high-performance infrastructure with VMware vSphere can accelerate time-to-value for organizations, which means accelerated deployment with less specialized expertise at a lower cost. This blockbuster release contains the following new features and enhancements, many of which are industry-first features.

Key Advantages

Maximized resource utilization

vSTAC OS combines resources from separate nodes to provide one large volume into virtual machines, in order to avoid “storage islands” that cannot be pooled for virtualization. With vSTAC OS, storage capacity can be combined across appliances and allocated as needed, inherently increasing the investment value of major resources.

Unparalleled Efficiency

vSTAC OS protects data and provides maximum usable capacity without the footprint, expense, or advanced expertise needed to configure replication and deduplication processes. vSTAC OS can function efficiently using less than 10% overhead, dedicating the rest to storage and compute for workloads chosen by the user.

Customized Configurations

Pivot3 supports a wide range of configurations that vary by CPU capacity, RAM, storage size, and data type. vSTAC OS can easily handle the extreme IOPS and continuously high data throughputs in environments such as VDI, BCDR, and more. Many Pivot3 configurations can be combined to handle differences in workloads that may be heavier in areas of complex deployments.
