Nutanix Launches New Cloud Operating Model
Nutanix has just announced the general availability of its new cloud portfolio, a platform designed to deliver an operating model across all types of clouds including public, private, and hybrid, as well as aiming to rapidly align with evolving customer requirements.
With this launch, Nutanix intends to remove the complexity often associated with enabling a full range of hybrid cloud services across multiple environments and to further help streamline customers’ digital transformations.
Built on hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) solution as the foundation, the new unified cloud portfolio include, Nutanix Cloud Infrastructure (NCI) – a software solution made up of virtual compute, storage and networking for virtual machines and containers, that can be deployed in private data centers or in public clouds; Nutanix Cloud Clusters (NC2) – which include cloud bursting, disaster recovery, and datacenter lift and shift; as well as, Nutanix Cloud Manager (NCM) – for the delivery of intelligent operations including monitoring, insights, and automated remediation.
“The Nutanix Cloud Platform builds on our market leading hyper converged infrastructure software to deliver a consistent cloud operating model for enterprises. Our new, simplified portfolio brings together our rich product capabilities across on-premises and public clouds to deliver consistent infrastructure, data services, management, and operations for applications in virtual machines and containers,” said Thomas Cornely, SVP Product Management at Nutanix.
The new portfolio further includes, Nutanix Unified Storage (NUS) – which delivers distributed and software defined storage for multiple protocols, supporting a variety of workloads deployed anywhere; Nutanix Database Service (NDB) – simplifies database management across hybrid multi cloud; as well as Nutanix End User Computing Solutions – deliver virtual apps and desktops to users worldwide from public, private, and hybrid cloud infrastructure.
According Nutanix, all new products are currently available to customers, however, the simplification theory behind the portfolio was achieved by simplifying packaging, metering, and pricing to enable customers plan for changing needs more easily, including workload expansions and cloud preferences.
