The Nutanix Solution
The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is a web-scale converged infrastructure solution that consolidates the compute (server) tier and the storage tier into a single, integrated appliance.
Nutanix uses the same web-scale principles and technologies that power the IT environment at innovative web companies and cloud providers such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon. Nutanix makes web-scale accessible to mainstream enterprises and government agencies without requiring an overhaul of their IT environments.
The Nutanix solution is radically simple compared to traditional datacenter infrastructures.
- Rapid time to value: deployment in under an hour
- No disruption to ongoing operations
- Predictable, linear scaling
- Powerful off-the-shelf, non-proprietary hardware
- Lower cost and complexity of storage
- Advanced, enterprise-class storage capabilities
The modular building-block design allows your organization to start with small deployments and grow incrementally into very large cluster installations. With one appliance, you can move from a small operation to handling large enterprise deployments including server virtualization, virtualized business applications, virtual desktop initiatives, test and development environments, big data (e.g. Splunk, Hadoop) projects, and more.
The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform integrates high-performance server resources with enterprise-class storage in a cost-effective 2U appliance. It eliminates the need for network-based storage architecture, such as a storage area network (SAN) or network-attached storage (NAS). The scalability and performance that the world’s largest, most efficient datacenters enjoy are now available to all enterprises and government agencies.
