The core of a corporate cloud is commonly called Hyperconvergence (HCI). Instead of stand-alone storage, networking and server infrastructure, HCI converges everything into a simple software-defined stack.
Nutanix uses hyperconvergence as hardware and what sets it apart is the fact that it is a 100% distributed system, without single points of failure with unlimited scalability and support, for any use case. Deployments can start with a single node and can smoothly scale up to hundreds of nodes.
Performance and capacity grow every time a node is added. Depending on the needs, the nodes can be capacitive or computational or the combination of both. This means that users only add the capacity they want to add.

With a “lego” model, provisioning and expanding the infrastructure become extremely simple. Another feature of NUTANIX is that it is agnostic to virtualization software (VMWARE, MICROSOFT, CITRIX, ORACLE etc.), also including its own: Acropolis Hypervisor AHV in addition to Prism for simplified management.
Finally, with VM-centric data protection, applications are protected within the local data center, in a remote datacenter or in the public cloud. Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) brings newfound simplicity and renewed operational efficiency to the data center and remote sites.

It is the perfect solution for delivering all business applications – including Oracle, SAP, Microsoft – and for managing VDI implementations with Citrix and VMware. Thanks to its elegant consumer-grade simplicity, implementing and managing an agile and flexible cloud infrastructure no longer requires in-depth IT skills.
