By CIOReview | Thursday, March 10, 2016

FREMONT, CA: T5 Data Centers, a leading provider of customizable and reliable computing support environments, recently announced that it is teaming with Pivot3, a foremost provider of dynamic Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions and predictable flash storage. The resulting partnership will lead to the conception of the first Pivot3 Center of Excellence inside T5’s LEED certified, 100,500 square foot T5 Atlanta data center. The facility is a purpose-built, server-ready and cloud-enabled multi-tenant data center rendering concurrent maintainable infrastructure and robust connectivity solutions that support company’s evolving IT strategies.

With the coalition with Pivot3, T5 is expected to spread out its offerings to include hyperconverged infrastructure for its countrywide assortment of cloud-enabled data centers, purpose-built to meet the varied demands of the responsive, application-driven businesses. T5 can now translate the best value for its cloud customers using Pivot3’s extremely dense server footprint and power draw.

“Pivot3 can easily scale-out cloud environments for CPU, RAM and disk from a Terabyte to a Petabyte while only consuming less than 10 percent of system resources—no other HCI vendor can provide this,” said Jason Peoples, vice president of channel sales at Pivot3. “The Center of Excellence demonstrates how enterprise production workloads can scale securely and efficiently with Pivot3’s patented technology, which is a great match for T5’s highly reliable environments characterized by total availability and continuous operations.”

Hyperconverged Infrastructure has been deemed as one of the fastest-growing IT market segments, predicted to generate a staggering $1.5 billion in 2016, according to analysts from IDC. Gartner predics HCI to explode at around a $5 billion market within the next three years. T5 aims to bring Pivot3 into their data centers across North America starting with their sites in Atlanta and LA; doing so to be at the forefront of this transforming market of Data Center Virtualization.

“We are seeing an increasing number of customers building cloud architectures on hyperconverged platforms,” said Craig McKesson, executive vice president, Enterprise Solutions at T5 Data Centers. “The demand for cloud services continues to grow exponentially. By adding Pivot3’s solution suite to our customer offering, we will be able to provide better scalability and performance, as well as reduced cost and complexity for mission critical business applications powered by our always on computing environments.”
