Nutanix Clusters

Unify Your Private Clouds and AWS

Nutanix Clusters delivers the industry’s first cloud platform with the flexibility, simplicity, and cost efficiency needed to manage applications and infrastructure in private and public clouds like AWS, operated as a single cloud.

Nutanix Clusters gives you a wide range of pricing & licensing choices, ranging from on-demand Pay-as-you-Go (PAYG) to Bring Your Own License (BYOL) with the portability of existing licenses.

Nutanix Clusters deploys the core Nutanix HCI Software, AOS, on AWS bare metal instances and supports AOS Pro and AOS Ultimate software editions. Note that AOS Starter edition is not available to run on public clouds.  For comparison of feature details for the two software editions, refer to the AOS Software Editions table.
