Pivot3, the hyperconverged infrastructure vendor, on Tuesday announced three new technology partnerships.
The company says each of its agreements with Zerto, VMware and Redington Value adds new capabilities to the company’s value proposition.
Zerto, known for its IT resilience, will be supported across Pivot3’s offerings. VMware’s Horizon 7 platform for virtual desktops and applications also is now available on Pivot3, and Redington Value, a value-added distributor across the Middle East and Africa, now supports Pivot3 with Splunk to support enterprise IT security and analytics use cases.
“Businesses are turning to HCI to support their most critical IT initiatives, and we’re thrilled to partner with leaders like Zerto, VMware and Redington Value to bring greater capabilities to customers running business continuity, workforce mobility and business-analytics applications on Pivot3 HCI,” said Mike Koponen, Pivot3 senior director of product and solutions marketing.
Both Zerto and Pivot3 are working with a large managed service provider (MSP) to develop and implement a solution that uses Pivot3 and Zerto to underpin its disaster recovery and data-protection offering. Pivot3’s expanded partnership with Zerto is supported across Pivot3’s entire suite of products. Zerto Virtual Replication 6.0, a platform approach for disaster recovery, data protection and workload mobility – to, from and among multiple clouds – is the company’s latest product release.
“In today’s connected world, businesses need to be available to their customers around the clock,” said Peter Kerr, director of technical alliances, Zerto. “The extended Pivot3 and Zerto partnership will bring a new level of sophistication to the IT infrastructure, ensuring that businesses and their customers always have access to critical applications without interruption.”
The availability of VMware’s Horizon 7 on Pivot3 HCI provides customers with more density and a reduced footprint, and a better user experience thanks to ultra-low latency NVMe PCIe flash datapath, Pivot3 said
Redington Value will offer an all-in-one analytics platform supported by Pivot3, bundled with Splunk and Malwarebytes, to address business analytics and IT security use cases to enterprises in the Middle East and Africa.
Last spring at ZertoCON, the company reported significant growth in its partner ecosystem — 1,700 partners and 350 cloud service providers (CSPs) across 77 countries.
