Nutanix on HPE ProLiant DX

Created by HPE and validated by Nutanix, the ProLiant DX family of appliances support all common datacenter use cases, including private cloud, database modernization and end-user computing.

Nutanix software solutions enable organizations to build enterprise cloud infrastructures delivering the simplicity and agility of public cloud services, with the control and security required in private cloud environments.

HPE ProLiant DX customers receive the same Nutanix compute, storage, virtualization and network functionality, combined with the company's intuitive, consumer-grade management that has made Nutanix the industry's most popular hyperconverged solution.

  • Cut the cost of virtualization with the Nutanix native AHV hypervisor and integrated virtualization management.
  • Build your private cloud easily with Nutanix software and HPE ProLiant DX with no change to your HPE tooling or operations.
