Reliance on the cloud has increased across every industry. Whether organizations are modernizing on-premises architecture to reap the benefits of the cloud, extending on-premises applications and systems to the cloud as needed, or rolling out cloud-first initiatives, most organizations today are using one or multiple clouds as well as their on-premises architecture.
There’s a lot of talk about hybrid multicloud in the IT industry—but achieving a true hybrid multicloud infrastructure takes more than simply having an instance of AWS® infrastructure or a cloud-native application. Without a consistent, unified management platform and a common operating model, a multicloud infrastructure is just a collection of silos that your IT team has to manage and operate separately.
Siloed systems that span the cloud and on-premises datacenter take a lot of time and effort to manage and are likely preventing your organization from making the most of any of those environments. They also create:
- Increased architectural complexity – Different cloud vendors and platforms all offer native tools and processes that can require different skill sets. For example, the way you set up users, permissions and roles for services in one cloud instance could be different from how it’s done on another platform.
- Cloud sprawl and potential for increased costs – It’s easy to spin up virtual machines (VMs) based on user demand or to start a new development project, but it’s also easy to forget about them once they’re no longer needed. If VMs are orphaned or not powered off, they could still be running in the background, costing you money from cloud operators and complicating your infrastructure.
- Disaster recovery difficulties across disparate platforms, systems and clouds – Recovering and restoring applications and data after a disaster or major attack can be really tough when IT platforms, systems, processes and procedures are siloed between clouds or employ a range of differing recovery and restoration tools.
- Networking and security policy complications – Siloed systems create networking and security complexities across the entire ecosystem. IT miss-configurations and errors are too easily introduced when juggling so many different processes across cloud siloes.

Nutanix makes true hybrid multicloud simple. We provide a common operating model and single control plane that spans on-premises, the cloud, and even out to the edge. By eliminating silos, you can manage cloud and on-premises infrastructure in a consistent way and move workloads seamlessly around the cloud or on-premises as needed.
With Nutanix, you get the flexibility and freedom required to make hybrid multicloud work for your organization’s IT policies, compliance objectives. The consistent, common operating model frees IT from having to juggle multiple tools, processes, and skill sets just to maintain the different systems. With a true hybrid multicloud from Nutanix you gain:
- Freedom to choose the vendors, OEM partners, products, and solutions you prefer across your entire infrastructure stack. Nutanix® solutions integrate within your existing ecosystem to help you achieve a seamless, consistent platform across on-premises, edge, and public cloud architecture.
- Freedom to move your apps, workloads, and other data wherever you want them, whenever you want. Workload placement efficiency can save money and reduce business risks, and Nutanix provides the flexibility to move between on-premises, your cloud of choice, then back again, without hassle or headaches. It is the same software stack across the hybrid multicloud; on-premises, edge and hyperscaler, therefore you don’t have to modify your applications when you move them. Furthermore, Nutanix license portability gives you the flexibility to change up your hybrid cloud as needs evolve ensuring efficient use of your investment.
