The core of an enterprise cloud is commonly referred to as Hyperconvergence (HCI). Instead of stand-alone storage, networking and server infrastructure, HCI converges all of them into a simple software-defined stack.
Nutanix uses hyperconvergence as hardware and what distinguishes it 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 seamlessly scale up to hundreds of nodes.
Performance and capacity grows each time a node is added. Depending on the needs, the nodes can be capacitive or computational or a combination of both. This means that users only add the capacity they want to add.
With a “lego” model, provisioning and infrastructure expansion become extremely simple. Another feature of NUTANIX is to be agnostic to virtualization software (VMWARE, MICROSOFT, CITRIX, ORACLE etc.) and includes its own called 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 data center 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 enterprise applications – including Oracle, SAP, Microsoft – and for managing VDI deployments with Citrix and VMware. Thanks to its elegant consumer-grade simplicity, implementing and managing an agile and flexible cloud-like infrastructure no longer requires in-depth IT skills.
