Datacenter operations have been on the rise ever since the cloud became an integral part of any firm. This is why Nutanix now makes infrastructure invisible, elevates IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business.
The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform blends web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge server, storage, virtualization and networking into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence.
Predictable performance, cloud consumption models, robust security, and seamless application mobility for all enterprise applications at any scale. A single software fabric unifies your private and public clouds and delivers one-click simplicity in managing multi-cloud deployments.
How Everything Works In the Company
Nutanix solutions are 100% software-based and are built on the industry’s most popular hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology, delivering a full infrastructure stack that integrates compute, virtualization, storage, networking and security to power any application, at any scale.
Nutanix software runs across different cloud environments to harmonize IT operations and bring frictionless mobility to all applications.
The growing demands of enterprise applications and the fast pace of modern business threaten to put legacy IT design — with separate storage, storage networks and servers — at risk of failure. The silos created by traditional datacenter infrastructure often present barriers to change and progress, adding complexity to every step from ordering to deployment to management.
How Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Simplifies Datacenter Operations
Hyperconverged infrastructure streamlines the deployment, management and scaling of datacenter resources by combining x86-based server and storage resources with intelligent software in a turnkey software-defined solution. Separate servers, storage networks and storage arrays can be replaced with a single hyperconverged infrastructure solution to create an agile datacenter that easily scales with your business.
Nearly all modern hyperconverged infrastructure solutions are 100% software-defined, with no dependency on proprietary hardware. Each HCI node in a cluster runs a hypervisor (Nutanix AHV, VMware ESXi, or Microsoft Hyper-V), and the HCI control features run as a separate virtual machine on every node, forming a fully distributed fabric that can scale resources with the addition of new nodes.
What is Beyond Hyperconverged Infrastructure?
Given the flexibility and simplicity that hyperconvergence brings to the datacenter, it should not be viewed as the end point objective, but as a foundation for building an Enterprise Cloud. Similar to public cloud services, hyperconverged infrastructure solutions enable IT, teams, to start small and scale incrementally to precisely meet application demands. With an Enterprise Cloud, IT teams gain the security and control they need to manage their infrastructure with confidence.
Pioneering the Enterprise Cloud
Nutanix pioneered hyperconverged infrastructure and continues to evolve the hyperconverged platform. It is helping to define the new era with an Enterprise Cloud that bridges the wide gap between traditional infrastructure and public cloud services. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud unifies your private and public clouds and simplifies the management of multi-cloud deployments with one OS.
Simplify IT Management
Consumer-grade management of datacenter infrastructure and applications eliminates the need for specialized IT teams, and advanced machine learning technology reduces complex tasks to a single click. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS delivers the simplicity and agility of popular public cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS), but with the security and control that you need in a private cloud. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS provides the performance, resilience and scalability to power all workloads – virtualized, container-based and bare metal. IT managers and application teams can improve operational efficiency with built-in services, including native file services, integrated application marketplace, block storage capabilities and more.
