Accelerate Operations & Improve Business Outcomes with Nutanix Database Services


Data is the lifeblood of your organization and its competitive differentiation. The tremendous volume and velocity of data and the growing need to harness it quickly calls for a new approach to managing databases. Unfortunately, most enterprise organizations have high-performance databases deployed on an infrastructure with discrete compute, storage, and network resources sprawled and fragmented managing different parts of database workloads. The result: inefficient operations and spiraling costs that are difficult to contain.

Managing segregated workloads results in burdensome manual processes that can expose your databases to costly human error. In fact, 91% of datacenters have experienced an unplanned outage in the past 12 months. Many IT organizations must commit at least 80% of their time and resources to simply maintain and test existing legacy databases. These high maintenance costs stem from databases deployed on traditional infrastructure resulting in slow provisioning, lack of scalability, and expensive workarounds for disaster recovery. As your business grows, so will the need for faster database performance with more agility. Traditional infrastructures can’t support all these operational demands at scale.

Fortunately, there’s a better way. Nutanix Cloud Platform with Nutanix Era, is a modern database infrastructure than can help you manage your segregated workloads more effectively, simplify how you manage databases, reduce costs, improve performance and availability, and deliver the ability to rapidly scale as needed.
