The data center server vendor made several smart partnerships around HCI and cloud last year, and now it’s moving into edge and IoT.
Adding these policy-based security capabilities to the Pivot3 Intelligence Engine enables customers to integrate data encryption and key management into the same workflow for managing applications and storage.
The vendor’s resiliency also improved airport security. “With security you can’t afford any downtime,” said the director of IT and security at Charleston International Airport.
At VMworld and at home this week, all four of the top hyperconverged infrastructure vendors made news with their HCI platforms and partnerships.
For the second quarter in a row Dell Technologies’ brands ranked No. 1 in hyperconverged hardware and software sales.
CEO Ron Nash expects his company to be profitable by next year, which could set the stage for an IPO if Pivot3 isn’t gobbled up first.
The hyperconverged infrastructure vendor partnered with CloudEndure, whose software provides disaster recovery and live migration technology, for the new services.
The software uses a technology Pivot3 calls Intelligent Cloud Engine that extends policy-based management and automation to the cloud.
HCI can reduce costs and complexity at remote offices.
