Pivot3-Lenovo Launches Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Platform to Streamline Computing and Storage

By CIOReview | Monday, July 20, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Pivot3 partners with Lenovo to bring Pivot3’s Global Hyper-Converged solution to Lenovo clients for unifying and optimizing the storage and compute power. The combined solution will be available as the “Hyper-Converged ONE” appliance platform exclusively by Arrow ECS.

The integration of Pivot3's vSTAC OS software and Lenovo’s ThinkServer RD650 server will enable Lenovo appliance users to get maximum storage efficiency, fault tolerance and higher compute performance, all with single pane of glass management while delivering lower total cost of operations.

With a software-centric architecture, hyper–convergence infrastructure integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources and other technologies from the start in a commodity hardware box developed, delivered and supported by a single vendor. Pivot3’s global hyper-convergence solution breaks the long-standing trade-off between available storage capacity and data protection by pooling all resources across a cluster.

The partnership with Arrow ECS enables the installation of Pivot3’s HCI software on the Lenovo ThinkServer RD650 Server to create a highly effective hyper-converged appliance. The Pivot3/Lenovo platform will be available through Arrow ECS and its channel partners to provide full access to Pivot3’s HCI offering for an innovative and economically scalable solution to current and new customers. Not only customers, even the channel partners will also benefit from their training and certification program that includes marketing support, sales enablement and promotional programs.

“The combined Lenovo/Pivot3 solution will deliver a powerful, efficient and easily scalable data centre solution to our customers. This partnership brings Lenovo clients a leading hyper-converged offering and will provide a scalable and flexible solution to unify and optimize the storage and compute power needed to deliver a superior user experience and excellent price-performance,” said Guy England, Director of Enterprise Business Group, Lenovo.
