Pivot3 announced that it has expanded its technology partnerships with Redington Value, Zerto and VMware that will bring new capabilities to Pivot3’s customers by supporting a wider range of use cases on a single infrastructure, including business continuity, workforce mobility and business analytics applications.

“Businesses are turning to HCI to support their most critical IT initiatives, and we’re thrilled to partner with leaders like Zerto, VMware and Redington Value to bring greater capabilities to customers running business continuity, workforce mobility and business analytics applications on Pivot3 HCI,” said Mike Koponen, senior director of product and solutions marketing at Pivot3.


Supporting Enterprise IT Resilience Solutions with HCI

Zerto offers the industry’s first and only single platform for IT resilience, combining continuous availability, orchestration and automation to ensure uninterrupted customer experience and accelerate multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud adoption. Through this expanded partnership, Pivot3’s entire suite of products will be supported for use with Zerto, bringing the high performance, response, reliability and low-latency infrastructure crucial for IT resilience. Both partners are currently developing and implementing the solution with a large managed service provider using Pivot3 and Zerto to underpin its disaster recovery and data protection offering. Managed and cloud service providers find Pivot3’s policy-based QoS particularly useful and operationally efficient for ensuring guaranteed SLAs to their clients.

Bringing Greater Density, Performance and Scalability to Virtual Desktops

Through Pivot3’s partnership with VMware, customers can experience simple and secure desktop deployment and application management on a high-performing infrastructure with the availability of Horizon 7 on Pivot3 HCI. With end users becoming more mobile and using a greater number of devices, managing and delivering services has become increasingly complex. By combining Horizon 7’s management approach with Pivot3, customers can experience superior density and a reduction in footprint, as well as superior end-user experience as a result of ultra-low latency NVMe PCIe flash datapath.

Providing the Scalability Needed to Support Data-Intense Business Analytics Use Cases

Redington Value, the leading value-added distributor across Middle East and Africa, is now offering an all-in-one analytics platform supported by Pivot3 bundled with Splunk and Malwarebytes to address business analytics and IT security use cases. As enterprises increasingly rely on data to make decisions and proactively manage threats, analytics has become foundational – yet data-intensive – ingredient. By deploying Pivot3 with Splunk, enterprises are able to experience a scalable and efficient infrastructure for real-time security intelligence and analysis, as well as support the broader analytics needs of the organization.
