Pivot3 Unveils Hyperconverged Infrastructure for the Rugged Edge

August 28, 2018 / Jeffrey Burt

Pivot3, a smaller vendor in the crowded hyperconverged infrastructure market, is turning its attention to the needs of the military, intelligence agencies and other organizations that need secure, resilient and fast data processing as they run their tactical operations in harsh environments. The company on Aug. 28 unveiled its Intelligent Edge Command and Control solution, which enables organizations that operate in extreme environments to collect, store, process and analyze data immediately in the field, rather than having to send the data back to a central data center or a public cloud. The ruggedized hyperconverged infrastructure solution can be used for a broad range of situations, from oil and gas exploration to mining operations. However, the self-contained system that is being tested currently is designed with the military in mind, according to Bruce Milne, chief marketing officer at Pivot3. It’s being tested in sea trials, Milne told eWEEK, though he declined to name the agency using it.
