Pivot3 Unveils Virtual Security Console
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
a leading supplier of video surveillance and virtual desktop (VDI)
hyper-converged infrastructure, announced the introduction of the Pivot3
Virtual Security Console, designed to allow users to deliver secure SOC
capabilities at any time, in any location.
The Pivot3 Virtual Security Console (VSC) allows users to flexibly
deliver secure, centralized video management capabilities at any time
and any place without deploying additional expensive, graphics-enabled
PCs. This unique approach permits VMS administration to be managed
either on-site or remotely, and brings significant cost savings by
allowing the use of existing PCs or thin clients for security monitoring
purposes. The infrastructure enhances mobility by offering access to VMS
permissions through any Web-enabled device, including mobile phones and
tablets. The solution is completely scalable and designed to meet the
demanding needs of markets such as corrections, casinos, retail and
manufacturing or any environment in which secure viewing is a priority.
VSC appliances are designed to easily integrate with an existing vSTAC
Watch array but can also be deployed outside vSTAC Watch arrays or
alongside competitive solutions. The appliances are optimized to deliver
an enhanced viewing experience through hardware graphics acceleration
using Teradici APEX card for CPU offload and NVDIA GRID K1 card for GPU
offload. The Teradici APEX reduces CPU overhead by offloading the most
active 100 virtual displays to ensure its capabilities are used where
most needed. NVIDIA (News - Alert) GRID technology delivers the ability to offload
graphics processing from the CPU to the GPU in virtualized environments,
allowing users to achieve graphics-rich experiences.
"Surveillance users continually search for new ways to centrally manage
operations of their systems while building a more robust and secure
IT-centric environment," said Curt Wittich, VP Wordwide Sales, Pivot3.
"We have designed the Pivot3 VSC to reduce the need for additional
hardware investment in SOC environments while increasing data security
and enabling more mobile operations."
The release of the VSC appliance follows Pivot3's recent upgrade of its
vSTAC OS, which fuses shared storage, networking and virtual servers.
Pivot3 vSTAC OS defines, creates and virtualizes all physical storage -
including SSD and hard drives - across an array into a common pool of
RAID-protected SAN storage. It features a non-disruptive, fully
integrated maintenance capability that enables administrators to
dynamically upgrade and manage appliances while maintaining virtual
server and storage availability. Virtual machines are allocated to other
appliances within the array to ensure continued performance and
flexibility, that enhances data and video protection.

Pivot3 was founded in 2003 on the idea that today's stack of virtual
servers, shared storage and networks could be converged to drive down
complexity and cost while dramatically increasing scale-out performance.
Today, Pivot3 has over 1,000 customers across the globe deploying Pivot3
vSTAC® hyper-converged infrastructure appliances. Pivot3
products are deployed in the video surveillance and virtual desktop
markets, and have seen particular success in the public sector,
transportation, gaming, education and retail vertical segments. The
company has won numerous awards and was most recently selected by Forbes
Magazine in 2013 as "One of America's Most Promising Companies", and by
CRN in their top 50 Virtualization list for 2014. To learn more about
