Read the Solution Brief

App Downtime and Data Loss Is Expensive

Unplanned outages can result in losses of over $9,000 per minute, loss of productivity, and negative impact on business reputation.

Your Most Valuable Asset: Data

Data is the most important digital asset of most organizations. Estimated to reach 175 zettabytes by 2025, data growth, management, and protection is top-of-mind for most enterprises.

Disaster Risks are on the Rise

No organization is immune to outages, severe weather, or security breaches. But most don’t have business continuity and data disaster recovery (DR) solutions that keep pace with their businesses.

Service Level Expectations are High

71% of organizations cannot tolerate more than an hour of downtime for their critical applications. Improving recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs) is a priority.

Build Data Protection and Disaster Recovery Into Your Infrastructure and Processes

Disparate backup and DR solutions lead to greater complexity, higher costs, and reduced reliability. Ensuring business continuity requires simple, yet highly resilient systems with efficient snapshot, cloning, and replication capabilities to provide a higher level of protection at a lower cost.

Confidently Meet Your SLAs

Enjoy high levels of availability and resiliency with a tailored data protection and disaster recovery solution to achieve your RPO and RTO objectives. Restore operations 67% times faster and deliver uninterrupted operations.

Protect Business-Critical Apps

Slash unplanned downtime events by as much as 85% and keep applications online during planned events or unplanned outages. Make your data backup and recovery solution a strategic advantage. 

Centralized Control

Intuitively manage all data protection and disaster recovery operations without compromising reliability. A single user interface enables unified control of both on-premises and cloud-based environments.

Built-in Data Protection

Most enterprises have multiple tiers of applications, each requiring its own data protection infrastructure, resulting in a complex, siloed, and inefficient data protection stack. Eliminate these silos with flexible, natively available backup and recovery options.

Choose Options That Suit Your Needs 

There’s no one-size-fits-all business continuity and data disaster recovery solution. Choose the right features for every use case across private and public clouds. Integrate with third-party data protection solutions for application consistency and granular data recovery.

See how the simpler, more cost-effective approach taken by the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud can close the gap between where your data protection is today and where it needs to be.
