Pivot3, the provider of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions, has announced a more than 50-percent increase in bookings from Q2 to Q3 2017. Following the April 2017 launch of its new Acuity HCI platform that features a NVMe flash datapath and advanced policy-based management for multiple mixed-application workloads, Pivot3 saw deals supporting multiple use cases more than double, with the average sale price growing by 25 per cent. Additionally, Pivot3 had continued growth in video surveillance use cases due to new product enhancements and deals worth more than $1 million.
Ron Nash, CEO, Pivot3, stated, ‘2017 has been a monumental year of product innovation and growth, and we’re thrilled to see customers respond so enthusiastically as we deliver on our promise to support the modern enterprise data centre. The message from the market is clear: enterprises are ready to place their most critical applications and workloads onto hyperconverged infrastructure, and Pivot3 is here to provide the high performance they need.’
Pivot3’s key achievements in Q3 2017 include increased bookings from Q2 2017, including a record of number deals worth more than one million dollars in both surveillance and data center use cases; increased bookings supporting multiple mixed-application workloads by nearly 180 per cent in Q3, with the majority of sales coming from new customers and nearly a third of those purchasing its new Acuity platform; continued expansion with federal agencies – including significant deals with large emergency recovery, defence and intelligence organisations – as well as transportation, healthcare, state and local government, education and entertainment verticals.
The company has also expanded its global partner programme with new tiers, certifications and services to help partners differentiate and profit in the HCI market. As a 100 per cent channel-driven company, Pivot3 saw a 178 per cent increase in new deal registrations from the channel in Q1 to Q3 2017, with 77 new partners joining in Q3.
Other developments include lab validation testing over three months on its next-generation Acuity HCI platform. This research revealed that compared to leading HCI solutions, Pivot3 delivers six times the performance, two- to three-times VDI user density per node, 62 per cent faster response times, nine-times faster processing of sub-millisecond IOs, and 46 per cent more transactions per minute resulting in up to 47 per cent lower costs per transaction and 46 per cent lower cost per virtual desktop.
