Why Performance Matters for High-Demand Enterprise Applications

Confession: We’re a little bit obsessed with maximizing your IT resources. That’s how we like it, and it’s why we’ve been able to develop the highest-performing systems you’ll find in the market.

The Outsized Impact of Enterprise Apps

Every organization we talk to, each customer and partner, is constantly hunting for ways to get more out of their IT investments. At the most basic level, that’s just good business sense. But the stakes are even higher when it comes to enterprise IT.

Why? Think about how much leverage enterprise apps exert across your business, either enabling — or bogging down — your staff in everything they do. As apps become ever more critical for business functions, and as they increasingly call on distributed virtualized resources, you can’t afford wasted CPU cycles, excess complexity to manage, or hardware that doesn’t pull its weight.

That’s where we come in.

Better HCI Architecture for Better Performance

As you’ll see in the video embedded below, our approach to hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) gives us unique advantage for enterprise IT performance. A lot of it comes down to the unique way Pivot3 systems create a unified and distributed pool of storage and compute resources so you can get more out of your resources while controlling costs.

Take a look:

The short version is that you get the sustained advantage of better data availability — 2x the performance, actually — for your critical apps and workloads. As the video explains, this happens because our approach delivers:

  • Better capacity utilization
  • Improved compute efficiency
  • Greater fault tolerance

That means your HCI will continue to perform with high resiliency even under heavy stress or during failure events. Even better —and unlike anyone else — our systems get more efficient as you build them out over time because of the way our technology lowers CPU and memory overhead at larger scales. (Our overhead starts at less than 10% and goes down from there.) That leaves your hardware with more power to run VMs and those critical enterprise apps.

We’ve seen our obsession with performance pay off again and again in the real world, even in installations that have petabytes of live data blasting them all the time.

Check out the video for more specifics on what we do, and drop us a line when you’re ready to discuss the technical details of how our performance optimization will work in your environment.
