Pivot3’s workload mobility & disaster recovery portfolio now available on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud

Cloud has come a long way over the last few years, and one can argue it has become fully integrated into the mainstream in 2018. With foundation, cloud companies are now expanding their services to reach more platforms and customers than ever before.

Pivot3, a Texas-based hyperconverged IT infrastructure provider, has announced that its Intelligent Hybrid Cloud offering is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. This portfolio of workload mobility and disaster recovery products and services will simplify and automate the management of multiple clouds while making it easier to migrate any work between the three platforms and on-premises infrastructure.

This move comes as enterprises increasingly use a combination of private and public clouds because each one can be optimized for specific workloads, security, performance, and infrastructure cost models, according to Pivot3. It is part of the company’s strategy to unify on-prem and public cloud infrastructures using policy-based management and automated resource orchestration technologies.

“Customers don’t want to be locked into a single public cloud provider,” John Spiers, executive vice president of strategy at Pivot3, says in a May 22 press release. “To simplify this, we are delivering a straightforward and proven solution with a software stack that gives customers the capability to centrally manage their applications and data across multiple clouds, with the flexibility to migrate workloads from cloud to cloud as business requirements change. Customers can also back up and recover from any cloud with near-zero recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives.”

This portfolio of products and services is available across the globe – including Canada – now through Pivot3’s network of channel partners and resellers. It gives channel partners more tools to help their customers implement a more efficient, cheaper multi-cloud environment.

Tim Stammers, senior analyst at 451 Group, explains that while most organizations use public clouds to augment their on-prem IT and most notably, for disaster recovery, setting up the system can be difficult.

“[Public cloud] is not always simple to set up. By becoming a single source of both on-premises infrastructure and software that enables disaster recovery or application migration across a choice of major public clouds, Pivot3 is simplifying the path to hybrid cloud computing,” he explains.

These cloud capabilities come from Pivot3’s partnership CloudEndure, which provides live workload migration and disaster recovery technology. Available now on AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, these capabilities were initially only available on AWS as of March 2018.
