Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Multicloud, or all the above? That is the question many organizations are asking. Do you refactor your apps or lift and shift? What about data security? Do you need a combination of things to support a complex business environment? It’s not likely a one size fits all situation. Nutanix® Cloud Platform infrastructure on Equinix Metal™ servers could be a great onramp to a Hybrid Multicloud world.

Nutanix Cloud Platform with Equinix Metal for a Hybrid Multicloud world

Nutanix Cloud Platform on Equinix Metal is a hybrid multicloud platform solution that spans private and multiple public clouds with a unified management plane, license portability, and seamless application migration across multiple cloud environments. It allows customers to run applications without refactoring using a consistent cloud operating model, leveraging existing cloud accounts and existing credits (if any).

Equinix Metal is built on top of Equinix Fabric. This helps enable Equinix to provide some of the best direct cloud network connectivity and peering as it operates datacenters at the heart of peering locations and close to public cloud resources. This adds simplified network connectivity onto a simplified hybrid multicloud experience.
