Pivot3 Launches Clustered Storage

SPRING, Texas -- Pivot3 Inc, the inventor of virtual distributed RAID, today announced its entry into the scalable network storage market with an IP-based storage cluster that delivers up to five times the performance at half of the cost of competitive solutions. The Pivot3 RAIGE (RAID Across Independent Gigabit Ethernet) Storage Cluster is the first system based on the ground-breaking Pivot3 block-level virtualization architecture that reduces storage infrastructure costs by up to 50 percent while significantly increasing scalability and data availability.

“We want to be able to scale to hundreds of thousands of subscriber sites and millions of cameras,” stated Rick Bentley, founder and CEO of Connexed Technologies, a hosted video surveillance provider and a Pivot3 customer. “Pivot3 has brought to fruition the type of storage solution we have only envisioned. The flexibility of the IP-based storage solution from Pivot3 is a perfect fit for data-intensive environments such as video surveillance.”

“With block-level virtualization, IT organizations are no longer dependent on traditional storage and RAID controllers, translating into great performance and cost benefits. They are not limited by a controller that is too small and they don’t have to pay up-front for a controller that is too big,” said Robert Fernander, chief executive officer of Pivot3. “Pivot3 transforms a standards-based hardware investment into enterprise-class data protection.”
