Capabilities & Benefits

Nutanix NX appliances provide a simple HCI solution for IT operations, from initial deployment through to support and maintenance with a single point of contact, and with hardware configurations designed for all application use cases.


Platforms are available via configure-to-order in 1U and 2U, single and multi-node configurations, with form-factors to suit standard 19” and telco racks.

Form-Factor Density

High density 2U 4-node form-factor platforms are designed for entry-level to mid-range compute and storage workload requirements.

The multi-node platforms provide density and flexibility important to Remote Office, Branch Office (ROBO) and test and development use cases.

The NX-1120S has been purposely designed for when IT equipment space is limited. It is a 1U, ½ rack-depth appliance that fits standard telco racks, and has low power and cooling requirements to meet the most stringent remote office and edge network demands. Learn More

Platforms include: NX-1065, NX-3060, NX-1120S
