Data Centre Consolidation

Tactile Technology in Partnership with Pivot3

Data Centre Consolidation

Today, an IT strategy is a must and a fundamental component to any credible business strategy. The agility required to keep up with rapidly evolving business demands begins with data centre consolidation. The traditional approach to data centre management has become complex, expensive, and unsustainable for real growth. Enterprise organisations should spend less time managing and maintaining their data centre environments. This can all be accomplished with Pivot3 Hyper Converged Infrastructure.

Pivot3 enables enterprises to optimise their data footprints, reduce complexity/cost whilst at the same time being able to maximise the performance of your virtual estate (to meet any and all workload requests). Their Hyper converged platforms reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) by converging the entire data centre into one integrated system that pools both compute and storage resources for ultimate flexibility.

This results in high performance and high availability for all your Tier 1 applications and you can adequately supply their needs. Industry leading efficiency enables Pivot3 deployments to span across a vast number of use cases: from production databases, to backup and to disaster recovery etc. Pivot3 state that “there are no other platforms that can do this in one integrated system, with one user interface, that offers a significantly lower price point than any legacy data centre infrastructure”. In our opinion, they aren’t wrong!

What is Hyperconverged Infrastructure?

HCI is a type of infrastructure system with a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualisation resources and other technologies on commodity hardware supported by a single vendor.

Pivot3 is Different

Most HCI solutions are limited to basic data protection schemes that impact capacity utilisation and system performance which keeps customers from realising all the benefits of Hyperconvergence. Pivot3’s smarter infrastructure for the software-defined data centre offers patented erasure coding, distributed scale-out architecture,and a Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS) engine to maximise resource utilisation,deliver high availability that performs, and prioritise performance and data protection to the applications that matter most to your business. No other Hyperconverged solution can offer this combination of efficiency, protection and performance.

Reduced Costs 

Significantly lower your management and maintenance costs, with fewer requirements for space, power, and cooling.

Key Advantages

Storage Efficiency

Enterprises can utilise up to 94% total usable capacity without sacrificing availability, with fewer nodes and a 6X reduction in power, cooling, and floor space.

Storage Resiliency

The security of 99.9999% availability with half the nodes and reduced costs than replication-based HCI systems.

Automation

Integrated system for storage and compute is self-managing, self-optimising, self-healing, and self-monitoring.

Scalability

Increase performance as you add nodes with linear scalability starting with a single node at 80,000 IOPS.

Low Overhead

Less than 10% of the available CPU and memory used to run vSTAC OS means more capacity for your VMs and applications.

Investment Protection

Ultimate flexibility to grow into a Hyperconverged solution at your own pace, in a pay-as-you-grow model.

Why We Offer Pivot3

Pivot3 is transforming the data centre with the simplicity, economics and performance of Hyperconverged Infrastructure with Dynamic Quality of Service. Most HCI solutions are limited to basic data protection schemes that impact capacity utilisation and system performance which prevents customers from realising the benefits of Hyperconvergence.

Pivot3’s smarter infrastructure for the software-defined data centre offers patented erasure coding, distributed scale-out architecture, and a Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS) engine to maximise resource utilisation. They deliver high availability that prioritises performance and data protection to the applications that matter most to your business.

What Pivot3 Say

“In today’s digital world, IT leaders and executives are striving to master a software-defined approach to business that enables faster application deployment and meets ever increasing end-user expectations for always-on data availability and instant access to information. Traditional data center infrastructure is expensive, inefficient and difficult to manage, forcing IT to look for more agile, scalable, and cost-effective solutions that drive innovation and align with the demands of business”.

“As a pioneer and innovator of hyperconverged infrastructure, Pivot3 was founded on the idea that the traditional data center could be radically simplified by unifying storage, compute, networking and virtualization resources into a powerful, easy-to-deploy solution that reduces costs, IT complexity, and organizational risk. Today, Pivot3 has more than 2,000 customers in 53 countries with over 18,000 successful deployments”.
