Three Critical Storage Capabilities for Modern Virtual Infrastructure
Don’t let the old ways of doing storage hold you back. Storage for the modern data center needs to address a fundamental shift for how virtual machines are managed. At the heart of the storage from Modern Virtual Infrastructure are key capabilities, including Storage QoS, PCIe Flash, and Virtual Volumes. Join George Wagner from Pivot3 as he examines these critical capabilities and what it means for customers.

Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the latest—and potentially most game-changing—technology disruptors to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe over fabric and Storage Class Memory.
It was just five years ago that Flash technology transformed the traditional storage market forever. Modern flash-first arrays are now the new normal for traditional storage. Will a new shared storage access protocol called NVM express over Fabric (NVMe-oF) combined with the advent of storage class memory (SCM) be equally disruptive to traditional storage over the next five years as NAND flash technology was in the past?
Vendors are now announcing new products and future architectures to enable them to support these new technologies. With the help of a lively panel of experts from HPE, Pivot3, and Mellanox, we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approaches to leveraging Storage Class Memory and NVMe-oF can radically improve storage products and solutions.
Join the University of Central Florida (UCF), one of the largest universities in the country with over 75,000 faculty, staff and students, and Pivot3 for a discussion about the security and operational challenges surrounding educational institutions. Learn how you can provide a safer learning environment by leveraging technologies to create a holistic, integrated and comprehensive safety plan.
The hyperconverged infrastructure space is exploding! It can be hard to keep up with the leading technologies in this incredibly fast growing market. Hear how Pivot3’s unique architecture tackles the data center complexity problem and simplifies IT deployment, performance & datacenter management. We’ll discuss how Pivot3’s newest product, Acuity, delivers 6X the performance and is capable of supporting 2X – 3X more VMs than conventional HCI solutions.

Consolidating multiple mixed data center application workloads on a Software-Defined Storage (SDS) platform can sometimes feel like rocket science. To confidently consolidate these workloads, including those deemed mission-critical, you need a platform that delivers predictable and low latency performance where and when it counts.
Join Intel and Pivot3 as we share five ways to transform SDS into a workhorse for your traditional data center applications. We’ll discuss the impact on applications and operations, as well as ways to manage your SDS with ease, including hyper-converged, NVMe and Quality of Service (QoS). No PhD in storage performance required!
Justin Wheeler, Storage Architect, Intel Data Center NVM Solutions, Mike Beevor, Sr. Technical Marketing Engineer, Pivot3
Much is being written about how advances in flash, including NVMe, may impact an organization’s storage strategies. In addition, technologies such as storage Quality of Service (QoS) are promising an easier way to provision performance. Not all implementations of these technologies are the same, so how do you determine what best fits your specific applications and business needs?
In this session, experts from Intel and Pivot3 discuss how combining NVMe flash and advanced, policy-based QoS enables organizations to confidently consolidate multiple mixed application workloads, including performance- and latency-sensitive ones, on a hyperconverged platform using SDS. We’ll discuss the impact of this new solution and what it means to applications, datacenter design and operations.

Traditionally, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) has been deployed only for specific use cases. However, HCI has the potential to do so much more! With greater economics and simplicity than traditional three-tier infrastructure, HCI can support multiple mixed workloads and latency-sensitive applications, plus scale predictably and efficiently.
Join Senior Analyst, Tim Stammers, from 451 Research and Sr. Product Marketing Manager, George Wagner, from Pivot3 as they discuss the evolution of hyperconverged infrastructure, architectural considerations for supporting workload consolidation, and how companies like Pivot3 are enabling organizations to do more with HCI with new architecture and policy-based management capabilities.
