Pivot3

Contributor(s): Matthew Haughn

Pivot3 is a hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) vendor that has deployed over 16,000 infrastructures and all-flash arrays in over 50 countries around the world.

Pivot3 has made converged products, mostly for use in law enforcement surveillance systems, since 2008. More recently, the company has expanded into the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) market with such clients as VMware, Microsoft, Dell, Red Hat, Cisco and F5. Pivot3 began offering all-flash arrays after its acquisition of Nexgen in early 2016.

Unlike other vendors that push data replication and deduplication as important features, Pivot3 says these make solutions inherently less efficient. Instead, the company has spent five years developing finely-tuned scalar erasure coding that spreads data across numerous locations and media types, resulting in greater storage efficiencies.

The company claims a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than competitors and with Pivot3’s technology, any type of VDI works with their system.

Pivot3 was founded by Lee Caswell and Bill Galloway in 2003. Corporate headquarters are in Austin, Texas.
