It’s Time to Modernize Data Protection

Most enterprises have multiple tiers of applications, from business-critical on down, and a corresponding set of recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) SLAs that range from zero to minutes to hours to days, each requiring its own data protection infrastructure. The resulting complexity and siloing of backup and recovery operations has produced inefficiency, management difficulty, and spiraling costs. By contrast, the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud erases all of the hardship and unnecessary expense.

Above All, Nutanix Makes Data Protection Simple

Get easy setup, in just a few clicks. Assign SLAs for your applications and choose from a variety of native data protection options. That’s it. Intuitive management, policy-based control, and simple recovery plans mean your days will now be worry-free. Monitor your DR preparedness and run one-click test and failover—without interrupting your production workloads. Enjoy rich reporting that makes compliance and governance a snap. Nutanix makes it possible.
