Nutanix Showcases Web-Scale Converged Infrastructure for Any Cloud, Any App and Any Scale at VMworld 2014
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Ahead of VMworld 2014, Nutanix,
the web-scale converged infrastructure company, announced that it will
be showcasing a new hyper-converged platform, the NX-8150, at the
San Francisco, Calif. event. In addition, the Company is launching Cloud
Connect, a new software capability enabling hybrid cloud
architectures that leverage popular public cloud services. The Nutanix
platform now runs any datacenter application, and enables turnkey hybrid
cloud computing for any size enterprises.
Web-scale technologies were innovated by the world's largest cloud and
Internet companies to overcome the limitations of legacy datacenter
architectures. However, keeping pace with rapidly changing IT demands
and bringing web-scale technologies into the enterprise means meeting a
diverse set of requirements. Datacenters must run business-critical
applications according to their unique capacity and performance demands.
In addition, the vast resources of public clouds offer an enormous
opportunity to design modern hybrid clouds. With the new NX-8150 Nutanix
powers the core enterprise workloads of today, while Cloud Connect
supports the hybrid cloud architecture of tomorrow.
The NX-8150 is a powerful hyper-converged appliance engineered
specifically for applications that demand high storage capacity, low
latency and fast storage performance, such as Microsoft SQL Server,
Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and Oracle (News - Alert) and SAP databases.
A single Nutanix NX-8150 supports up to 3500 Exchange mailboxes in just
2U of rack space to reduce datacenter space requirements and minimize IT
complexity. The platform's linear scalability makes it perfect for even
the largest deployments. In addition, the NX-8150 offers flexible CPU,
flash and networking configurations enabling customers to tailor the
hardware for their environment and workloads. By delivering any
application at any scale, the new NX-8150 brings Nutanix's powerful
web-scale infrastructure to run even the most demanding enterprise
Also announced for VMworld 2014 is Cloud Connect, the first
product release in the Company's hybrid cloud roadmap. Cloud Connect
seamlessly integrates public cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services (News - Alert)
(AWS), with Nutanix-powered private cloud environments. It allows
Nutanix customers, for the first time, to combine private and public
cloud technology into their long-term infrastructure strategy without
requiring third-party software or hard to maintain plug-ins. Cloud
Connect provides reliable data protection and recovery that enables
datacenter managers to deliver IT services and integrate in an open
manner without being constrained by existing datacenter resources.
"Nutanix delivers the power of web-scale technologies in a turnkey
enterprise solution," said Shawn Winters, IT Director, Mimeo. "The new
integrated cloud backup capabilities offer simple, intuitive data
protection without requiring third-party solutions. With Cloud Connect,
Nutanix has extended the already impressive functionality to the public
cloud, allowing us to seamlessly integrate private and public cloud
infrastructure into a simple-to-manage yet powerful hybrid cloud."
"We are laser focused on bringing web-scale architecture to everyone in
IT, and the introduction of Cloud Connect and the NX-8150 does just
that," said Raja Mukhopadhyay, Senior Director of Product Management,
Nutanix. "Nutanix embraces the public cloud, which is requisite for any
modern datacenter. Web-scale IT is already powering some of the largest
corporations and government agencies in the world - now we are bringing
it to the world's most mission-critical apps."
