One Platform to Manage Any Cloud

Nutanix unifies your hybrid and mutli-cloud operations on a single platform that lets you custom-build your cloud for maximum cost efficiency. Start your cloud journey on a flexible foundation, purpose-built for choice and simplicity.

What Makes the Nutanix Cloud Journey Unique?

Nutanix enables seamless hybrid and multi-cloud expansion through native integration with public clouds. Unlike the traditional approach of building piecemeal integrations onto a legacy foundation, Nutanix creates a flexible basis that lets you run and manage any app in any location from a single platform. This gives you the freedom to choose your cloud resources while maintaining interoperability from the start.

The Nutanix cloud journey typically happens in 4 phases, each methodically building upon the previous.

Phase 1: Modernize Your Infrastructure

Simplify management of your on-prem data center by converging storage, networking, compute, and virtualization silos onto a unified, software-driven infrastructure platform. This unified platform forms the basis for ensuring interoperability in your cloud operations.

"We needed to replace our entire infrastructure stack with a more scalable solution which we could pick up and take to a new location if and when required. Nutanix was the only vendor able to meet that immediate need while also delivering cost savings and providing the completeness of vision to allow us to leverage other, public cloud, investments going forward."

Edward Poll, Head of IT Infrastructure, Cranfield University

Phase 2: Automate IT Services in a Private Cloud

Save your IT team from error-prone manual tasks by automating management and resource delivery for end users. A private cloud gives you the simplicity and scalability of public cloud with the control and security of your on-prem data center.

“The next big step in IT is being able to move our workloads seamlessly from on-premises infrastructure to the public cloud, and then back in-house if our requirements change; that flexibility is built into the Nutanix solution.”

- Brian Oamek, Senior Enterprise IT Architect

Phase 3: Enable Hybrid Cloud

On-ramp to hybrid cloud by integrating public cloud resources with your private cloud. For example, implementing cost governance, DR, and security and compliance auditing across clouds helps lay the groundwork for your continued expansion to hybrid and multi-cloud operations.
