Pivot3 was founded in 2003 on the idea that a revolutionary scale-out architecture would deliver large-scale, high-bandwidth storage using off-the-shelf hardware components combined with specialized software. The company’s award-winning products are deployed worldwide in the government, public sector, transportation, gaming and education markets. All products rely on the innovative RAIGE (RAID across Gigabit Ethernet) architecture.
In 2008, Pivot3 launched the Scale-out Application Platform, the first and only platform to provide failover-protected virtual machines inside an IP SAN. This unique architecture eliminates the cost, power and rackspace o f physical servers, as well as dedicated failover hardware. The result is a radical new cost point for high-capacity installations and an integrated approach to high-availability protection for both ISV applications and SAN storage.
