Nutanix originally started with a single hardware platform (NX) to support a single hypervisor, all of which enabled the company to hone its software capabilities and tight integration with the hardware layer, before expanding support to include other vendor platforms, hypervisors and clouds.
The ninth generation NX platforms are based on the 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (code-named Sapphire Rapids) and 4th Gen AMD EPYC™ (code-named Genoa) processors and provide customers with a high degree of configuration flexibility, including over memory, storage and GPU options.

The range of Nutanix NX platforms are designed for all common on-premises hyperconverged infrastructure and hybrid cloud use cases, including:
