Nutanix Cloud Platform for Business-Critical Applications and Databases

Modern Infrastructure Designed for an App-Driven World


Digital transformation has enabled enterprises to become app development factories. Industry analysts predict that 67% of enterprises will release app code daily by 2025 and more than 750 million new apps will be delivered to the market by 2026.

With accelerated digital initiatives and an increasingly app-driven world, organizations are reassessing their infrastructure options — and considering hybrid multicloud environments — before deploying current and future apps and databases.

IT decision-makers require a hybrid multicloud infrastructure that: 

  • Delivers consistent performance in app and database responsiveness 
  • Minimizes unplanned downtime 
  • Integrates full-stack security to quickly detect and mitigate security threats 
  • Scales rapidly and linearly as business needs, performance demands and data grow
  • Reduces operating costs by simplifying management and improving efficiency

With Nutanix, we have an infrastructure that just works. It’s great to hear that upgrading the systems and all the non-glamorous tasks we must do can be accomplished with just the click of a button in the Nutanix world.
