Companies collaborate to provide cost-efficient software-defined storage and all-flash appliances featuring patented Scalar Erasure Coding


ATLANTA and SANTA CLARA, Calif. July 21, 2015 – VeriStor Systems, an advanced IT solutions provider specializing in virtual infrastructure and enterprise private, public and hybrid cloud services and solutions, today announced that it has partnered with Pivot3, a pioneer and innovator in the development of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions. Together, the two companies will offer high-efficiency hyper-converged data center solutions that are ideal for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Business Continuity (BC)/Disaster Recovery (DR) applications and general IT workloads.

By offering all-flash appliances that feature Pivot3’s patented vSTAC OS utilizing Scalar Erasure Coding global hyper-converged architecture, VeriStor is powering VDI and BC/DR infrastructures with solutions that provide more performance per appliance and greater savings for customers.

The vSTAC software delivers up to 90 percent usable capacity and protects more drive failures than scale-out approaches offering simple replication. All of the resources in the array are constantly shared across all of the appliances and virtual machines. As a result, Pivot3 appliances support more than two times the workload hosting of other solutions which results in significantly lower total cost of ownership for businesses across user categories.

“Pivot3 is an innovation pioneer in hyper-converged infrastructure and its all-flash enterprise appliances offer powerful performance for high-workload applications,” said Ashby Lincoln, CEO, VeriStor. “We are eager to work together to provide our customers with a modular and cost-effective way to scale data centers with cloud-like benefits and pay-as-you-grow flexibility.”

“Like us, VeriStor is an innovative company with unparalleled expertise in private cloud storage, BC/DR and VDI,” said Ron Nash, CEO of Pivot3. “They are experts in architecting converged infrastructure environments that help customers truly realize the evolution of virtualization into private cloud operations. With their design and implementation expertise, Pivot3 can help customers embrace hyper-converged infrastructure for greater scale and efficiency.”

Pivot3’s robust partner program is designed to expand the company’s rapidly growing reseller channel and enables partners to easily deliver Pivot3’s best in class hyper-converged platform to customers. This partnership will provide VeriStor access to the program’s tools in order to maximize efficiency and profitability in order to gain a competitive advantage in the market.

“Pivot3 is focused on investing in the channel to ensure the success of our partners in their respective markets,” said Jason Peoples, vice president of channel development for Pivot3. “Enterprises are increasingly searching for more affordable, high-availability solutions to the problem of data center complexity and storage, and we want to provide partners with the tools to maximize efficiency and profitability.”
