Pivot3 hopes $24 million in additional funding and success with city government customers will expand the reach of its RAIGE technology.
Pivot3, a virtual distributed RAID vendor, will use $24 million it raised in additional venture capital funding to expand marketing, sales and support to channel partners selling its RAID Across Independent Gigabit Ethernet, or RAIGE, technology.
Vice president of Marketing Jeff Bell said the additional funding also will help
extend the technology's reach into other storage-intensive verticals such as financial
services and health care. Pivot3 RAIGE is currently used by several city
and local governments to store video surveillance files and also has been
embraced by casino customers,
want to extend the base technology to other markets beyond video surveillance;
we understand that is an application niche,"
The funding will allow Pivot3 to provide sales and marketing support to more partners as well as aid in recruiting partners nationwide.
technology is a networked version of traditional RAID storage,
"RAIGE coordinates data access without the need for front-end
is great for applications that are data-intensive and require constant access
to data that's constantly changing and flooding the system,"
