The Silicon Review
- Nutanix CEO, Dheeraj Pandey
Nutanix makes infrastructure invisible, elevating IT to focus on the applications and services that power their business. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform blends web-scale engineering and consumer-grade design to natively converge server, storage, virtualization and networking into a resilient, software-defined solution with rich machine intelligence.
Nutanix Enterprise Cloud combines the agility and simplicity of the public cloud, with the security and control you need in a private cloud. Built on the industry’s leading hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) technology, it integrates compute, storage, virtualization, and networking in a full-stack solution that runs nearly any application.
But what is hyperconverged infrastructure?
The growing demands of enterprise applications and the fast pace of modern business threaten to put legacy IT design — with separate storage, storage networks, and servers — at risk of failure. The silos created by traditional datacenter infrastructure often present barriers to change and progress, adding complexity to every step from ordering to deployment to management.
Hyperconverged infrastructure streamlines the deployment, management and scaling of datacenter resources by combining x86-based server and storage resources with intelligent software in a turnkey software-defined solution. Separate servers, storage networks, and storage arrays can be replaced with a single hyperconverged infrastructure solution to create an agile datacenter that easily scales with your business.
