The Industry's Most Feature-rich Hyper-Converged Platform
Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform Features
Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform delivers the industry’s most feature-rich hyper-converged infrastructure to enterprise datacenters. Nutanix brings the benefits of web-scale technologies to enterprise applications through enterprise storage, data protection, infrastructure resilience, management and analytics, and security.
The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform delivers enterprise data storage as an on-demand service by employing a highly distributed software architecture. Nutanix eliminates the need for traditional SAN and NAS solutions, and delivers a rich set of software-defined services that are entirely VM-centric, including snapshots, high availability, disaster recovery, deduplication and more.
Inline and post-process compression at the sub-block level increase effective storage capacity by up to 4xView Feature
Snapshots and Clones
Redirect-on-write snapshots and writeable clones at the granularity of a single VM increase efficiencyView Feature
Distributed caching of VM data improves performance in multi-reader scenarios, such as VDI with linked clonesView Feature
Inline deduplication in the read cache and post-process deduplication in the capacity tier, improve performance and effective capacityView Feature
Powerful acceleration capabilities such as caching, automatic data tiering and data locality speed storage performanceView Feature
Nutanix offers a natively integrated solution for data protection and continuous availability at VM granularity. It gives administrators an affordable range of options to meet the recovery point objectives (RPO) and recovery time objectives (RTO) for different applications.
Converged Local Backups
Unlimited local backups using VM-centric snapshots and integrated workflows delivering RPO in minutesView Feature
Integrated Remote Backup and DR
Natively integrated solution for disaster recovery enables simple VM-centric backup, recovery and replication with application-level consistencyView Feature
Built-in hybrid cloud technology enables seamless backup of data to plublic cloud servicesView Feature
Continuous availability of data across different sites during planned maintenance or disasters through synchronous replicationView Feature
Support for Microsoft VSS and VMware VADP, and seamless integration with third-party backup providers like Commvault and VeeamView Feature
The Nutanix web-scale platform is fault resistant, with no single point of failure and no bottlenecks. The system uses a shared-nothing architecture, where all data, metadata and services are distributed to all nodes within the cluster, and is built to detect, isolate and recover from failures anywhere in the system. Nutanix hyper-converged appliances deliver always-on operation, and can survive system hardware, software and hypervisor issues and maintain 100% availability to applications and data.
Intelligent data placement in different physical failure domains (e.g. separate racks or power sources) delivers greater fault toleranceView Feature
Data and metadata replicated across multiple nodes provide user-defined resilience against hardware failuresView Feature
Data Path Redundancy
Multiple copies of data ensure 100% data availability in the event that a Nutanix controller VM is unavailable due to failure or maintenance.View Feature
Data Integrity Checks
Automatic integrity checks during reads and silent at-rest error detection for data consistencyView Feature
Management & Analytics
The Nutanix hyper-converged platform marries web-scale capabilities with an intuitive user-centric management experience to simplify every aspect of the IT infrastructure lifecycle. Nutanix Prism provides a single pane of glass to monitor and control one or more Nutanix clusters, with simplified workflows and rich automation for common administrative tasks.
