I am pleased to announce the latest version (version 3) of the Nutanix Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture tech note is now available for download. The Nutanix® Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture is a comprehensive document that is meant for an organization’s Enterprise Architect team. This guide is very technical and walks a customer through more than 100 design decisions that should be taken into consideration when deploying Nutanix solutions in a hybrid cloud or private cloud model.

Version 3 provides new content, and minor updates to previous sections. Brand new to this version includes the following topics:

  • Prism Operations
  • Nutanix Clusters for Hybrid and Multicloud Operations
  • Nutanix Flow for Microsegmentation
  • Nutanix Files
  • Nutanix Objects
  • Nutanix Mine (Integrated Backup)
  • Calm for application orchestration
  • Karbon for Kubernetes and Containers
  • Era for DBaaS (Databases as a Service)

All of this new content is in section 6 of the guide, so it’s easy for you to find. Some minor changes were incorporated into the BC/DR section, such as expanding the protection level intermixing matrix for better clarity.

Most of the new content in version 3 is around the Nutanix AHV hypervisor. Nutanix believes in giving customers their choice in hypervisor, so sections 1 – 5 still cover both Nutanix AHV and VMware vSphere hypervisors for core HCI functionality.

  • Hypervisor Choice
  • Hardware Choice
  • Management Layer
  • Automation
  • Security
  • Networking
  • BC/DR
  • Multi-Sites

This guide is an invaluable tool for any Nutanix Enterprise Architect in your organization. You can download the Nutanix Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture Guide here.

It can also be found on the bottom of the Nutanix Cloud page.
