PIVOT3 LAUNCHES RUGGEDIZED INTELLIGENT EDGE COMMAND AND CONTROL SOLUTION FOR SEVERE ENVIRONMENTS

Pivot3’s SWaP-optimized hybrid cloud solution supports sophisticated analytics, VDI and IoT use cases for defense, intelligence and harsh environment operations

Pivot3, the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology and performance leader, today announced a new ruggedized hybrid cloud solution to support the infrastructure needs of defense, intelligence and other extreme operations at the “tactical edge.” Optimized for analytics, virtual desktop infrastructure and IoT uses cases, Pivot3’s Intelligent Edge Command and Control solution allows customers with truly mission-critical requirements to capture, process and act on data immediately in the field.

“Whether you’re navigating uncertainty on the battlefield or facing austere environments, effective tactical operations require an IT solution that can weather any storm without compromising performance and ease of use,” said Jeff Forte, VP of Federal, Pivot3. “Pivot3’s Intelligent Edge Command and Control solution allows agencies to reimagine their capabilities in the field and achieve new levels of control and data utilization, no matter the environment.”

As defense, intelligence and other agencies deploy more IoT-enabled intelligent devices in the field – from body cameras and sensors to virtual desktops – a more reliable, dense and high-performing solution is required that can withstand the elements of all environments. Designed for extreme conditions, Pivot3’s Intelligent Edge Command and Control solution is a fully self-contained computing infrastructure platform that transforms vehicles, ships and planes into micro-datacenters with simple, on-demand scalability. It provides a common platform across tactical and traditional datacenter environments for all workloads, no matter where they live. With Pivot3, agencies can easily add compute and capacity as needed to grow with the needs of the mission.

Powered by Pivot3’s Intelligence Engine, the solution provides NVMe flash performance, security, scale and resilience in a space, weight and power (SWaP)-optimized form factor capable of supporting multiple mission-critical workloads. The Intelligence Engine features industry-leading automation for “set-and-forget” policy-based management, which enables customers to guarantee performance to critical applications and automate data placement across private and public clouds. The Intelligent Edge Command and Control solution enables policy-based replication, workload mobility and disaster recovery for complementary cloud services.

“With the Department of Defense placing a greater emphasis on coalition partners in the battle against global terrorism, tactical hyperconvergence and hybrid cloud platforms are becoming vital weapons in the arsenal of the intelligence community,” said Scott Hornsby, principal architect at Trace Systems, a leading provider of telecommunications, networking, cybersecurity and information technology services to the United States Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community and the Department of Homeland Security. “Pivot3 Intelligent Edge Command and Control is architected to help agencies support a multi-tenant, consolidated and secure platform, and we’re proud to be a partner in helping multiple agencies incorporate this architecture to collaborate and share intelligence in the global fight for freedom.”

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations.

As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
