Examining Pivot3's Scale Out Hosting Platform

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 10, 2010

Pivot3 has announced a scale out hosting platform aimed at supplying the growing number of VSaaS providers needing centralized storage. Partners listed in the announcement include Axis, Detexei, Salient and Iveda.

In contrast to its general purpose video surveillance storage offerings (CloudBank and MiniBank), Pivot3 offers backup and replication options with secondary storage to enhance disaster recovery (e.g., the VSaaS's primary data center is lost).
