Pivot3 has built a business selling scale-out, consolidated infrastructure systems in the video surveillance industry with their vSTAC software platform. Now, a newer Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solution is available, based on the Acuity software platform.

Leveraging the vSTAC technology, but adding Accelerator nodes, the Pivot3 HCI appliances provide an NVMe PCIe flash layer to the cluster in all-flash and hybrid storage configurations. Pivot3’s Acuity platform also provides the software for hyperconverged solutions using Dell and Lenovo servers.

Pivot3’s HCI appliances are available in 1U and 2U single-node chassis, hybrid and all-flash configurations, with clusters of from 3 to 16 nodes. Each cluster also contains two Accelerator nodes that feature an 8-Lane, PCIe AIC card or a PCIe U.2 card, providing a tier of persistent storage and read/write cache, in excess of the performance of a normal SSD cache. Acuity features auto-tiering capabilities in the Acuity operating system as well as software-based encryption and key management.

Pivot3 also offers a ruggedized version of the 1U, X3-6000, designed for edge deployments in harsh environments. The V5-2000 series provides HCI nodes to support video surveillance use cases, with Intel Xeon or AMD EPYC CPUs and up to 336 TB of hard disk capacity.
