vSTAC Watch appliances deliver high-performance compute and storage resources that scale as appliances are “stacked” together in a Pivot3 Storage And Compute Stack (vSTAC). Each vSTAC Watch appliance contributes a highperformance VMware ESXi virtual server environment with dedicated local compute resources as well as IP SAN resources that are shared across the entire vSTAC. Each vSTAC contains from three to twelve vSTAC Watch appliances and can be expanded on the fly.
Scale IP SAN Storage Seamlessly
Storage can be logically and physically expanded while applications are running to meet the needs of the most demanding environments. Appliances contribute new capacity, bandwidth and RAID resources to the expanded vSTAC.
Improve Uptime for Applications and Storage
Storage and servers have traditionally been managed and protected as separate entities. The vSTAC is self-healing for storage failures and supports self-healing single-vm restarts using the Pivot3 VM Failover™ feature. Support for optional real-time failover solutions from VMS Partners and from VMware is also provided.
Surveillance vSTAC - 5 Appliance Example
vStac simultaneously runs virtual server environments and creates, protects and load balances IP SAN capacity and performance across all the drives, network and RAID controllers contained within the appliances in the vSTAC.
vSTAC Watch appliances integrate a virtual server and scale-out storage resources in a common appliance that saves up to 40% in power, cost and rack space over physical servers and physical SAN storage.
Pivot3 uses virtualization technology to rejoin servers and storage in a single appliance that can be managed by server and network administrators. There is no need to master complex SAN concepts since the vSTAC is based on familiar Ethernet and server standards.
Pivot3 is the first and only vendor to provide failover-protected virtual machines inside an IP SAN, eliminating the cost, power and rack space of 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.
Pivot3 builds and delivers seamlessly unified shared storage and virtual server appliances (vSTAC) that are purpose-built to address modern virtual server, big data, and surveillance workloads.
Each Pivot3 vSTAC™ appliance is purpose built and tuned with a specific workload and value proposition in mind.
