Overall Satisfaction with Pivot3

The Pivot3 vSTAC cluster is used to run our production vSphere deployment. Most of our business runs on this cluster. This is an all flash system, run well, with excellent performance. We are very pleased with the product.
  • Deployment was very easy. Pivot3 staff were involved in the POC, and the transition was fairly smooth.
  • This is an all-flash hyperconverged cluster. It is easily scalable and has excellent performance.
  • We frequently burst internal virtual workloads, and this 5 node cluster can support around 15,000 IOPs and 1 GB/sec of throughput.
  • The cluster is actually very easy to use. It might be nice if the dashboard had more detailed metrics, but those are available in a different interface.
  • Definitely a positive ROI. We are not seeing some of the latency issues that were beginning to crop up on our older hardware.
We reviewed the technology and pricing prior to commencing a POC. Pivot3 looked the best initially and delivered. We did not test the others ourselves.
It is only suitable for a vSphere deployment. This particular cluster is best suited for very demanding workloads.
