Austin, Texas, July 10, 2018 — Pivot3, the hyperconverged infrastructure performance and technology leader, today announced Caesars Entertainment EMEA has deployed Pivot3 HCI to ensure robust protection of critical video surveillance data, and to future-proof its IT infrastructure to support a wider range of workloads.
Pivot3 unifies storage, compute and virtualization resources into a powerful, easy-to-deploy solution that reduces cost, IT complexity and organizational risk. With Pivot3, Caesars can now support multiple mission-critical workloads, including video surveillance, on a single high-performance and cost-effective infrastructure platform.
“We selected Pivot3 because we have complete confidence that its highly-resilient HCI technology will protect our video data,” said Charles Rayer, IT director, Caesars Entertainment EMEA. “In today’s sophisticated gaming environment, it’s critical that video data is protected, always available and easily accessible at any time, from any device or location. Pivot3 supports our broader roadmap initiatives with the opportunity to expand hyperconverged to our datacenter and enterprise computing applications, which helps future-proof our investment and drive additional value across our organization.”
Caesars Entertainment is one of the most established and innovative brands in the global gaming industry. Its EMEA division has a diverse portfolio of gaming, entertainment, restaurants and bars at locations throughout the United Kingdom, South Africa and Egypt. The organization relies on highly-integrated video surveillance solutions to capture the data that drives business intelligence and ensures compliance and continuous operations. The addition of Pivot3 to its ecosystem helps protect against system failures, operational interruptions and lost revenues, which cannot be tolerated in strict regulatory environments such as gaming.
In addition to Pivot3, Caesars EMEA is deploying Milestone video management software (VMS) across its 14 sites in the region. Pivot3’s interoperability and ease of integration with Milestone stems from its ability to consolidate VMS hosting, security applications and associated data, and all client workstations into one centralized platform. Caesars EMEA’s individual sites incorporate 75 to more than 200 video surveillance cameras.
“HCI is the ideal platform for mission-critical applications, like video surveillance, that require the highest degree of protection, resiliency and availability,” said Brandon Reich, video surveillance practice leader, Pivot3. “Pivot3 is designed to handle the rigors of enterprise IT environments with the fastest, simplest and smartest HCI available, and we’re excited to support Caesars’ video data protection needs as well as their infrastructure growth going forward.”
