AHV

Truly invisible infrastructure includes virtualization

Virtualization no longer needs to be a distinct layer of the IT stack that has to be licensed, deployed, and managed separately.  Nutanix AHV is native, enterprise-grade virtualization included with the Enterprise Cloud OS.

Ask yourself if you’re getting value from your virtualization spend. Nutanix AHV is enterprise-grade, built-in, and license-free.

All the Power and Performance
You’ll Need

AHV delivers everything you’d expect from a virtualization solution that’s tested and ready for the enterprise: high performance, flexible migrations, security hardening, automated data protection and disaster recovery, and rich analytics. With robust, integrated management features, AHV is a leaner virtualization solution with no software bloat, no costly shelfware, and no extra costs.

Freedom to Choose

Out of the box, Nutanix Enterprise Cloud fully supports industry-standard hypervisors including ESXi and Hyper-V. We’re all about choice. But we’d also suggest you consider the management, support, and cost implications—we think you’ll find a strong case for using AHV instead, and we make it simple to switch.
