Because Pivot3 leverages the industry-standard iSCSI protocol, it enables hosts and physical workloads that reside outside of a Pivot3 cluster to access Pivot3 volumes by providing highly available block storage as iSCSI LUNs. The physical workloads can be stand-alone servers, Windows Failover Clusters (including MSSQL) or Oracle RAC. Also hypervisor workloads are supported to run on these separate hosts, such as Hyper-V and KVM.
Pivot3 quality engineering teams have so far qualified Acuity with external hosts running VMware ESX 6.x, Windows Server 2012/2016 and various flavors of Linux.
