Capabilities & Benefits

Best in class, intuitive simplicity

Prism lets you manage your entire environment through a single, elegant console. Simplify monitoring and remediation with an end-to-end, application-centric view of your network—from every node in the cluster to VM-specific details. Maintain control over resources with role-based access control (RBAC), and automate workflows with Prism’s comprehensive REST APIs.

Codeless Task Automation

Prism’s X-Play links intelligent signals with automated actions, allowing IT teams to automate day-to-day operational tasks with zero coding. Instantly improve operational productivity. X-Play automatically analyzes consumption across all VMs, detects inefficiencies, and corrects provisioning issues with no administrative intervention.

Discovery and Application Monitoring 

Prism features real-time, agentless application discovery, giving you a clear view into the full stack of your applications. Prism also simplifies monitoring by collecting and analyzing application metrics, and shortens root cause analysis and mean time to resolution of infrastructure-related application issues thanks to industry leading behavior learning and anomaly detection capabilities..

Capacity and Cost Governance

Prism anticipates capacity needs for both applications and clusters, enabling pay-as-you-grow scaling. Prism also has cost governance capabilities, powered by Xi Beam, that allow users to manage and analyze the cost of their Nutanix and cloud environments. With automated budget alerts and algorithmic projections, it has never been easier to track infrastructure scale and spend.

The Home Depot Loves Prism

“Prism Pro makes it extremely easy to watch all of the clusters in our environment and quickly reconfigure things as needed. It provides very clear metrics on oversubscription and utilization, giving us a powerful, proactive capacity management function that we never had before...Since Prism Pro is so easy to use, we told the database engineers they could quickly learn to manage their own environments and monitor capacity utilization.”

Kevin Priest, Senior Director, The Home Depot
