Nutanix boosts multi-cloud solution portfolio

DUBAI, May 10, 2019

Nutanix, a leader in enterprise cloud computing, has announced the continued evolution of its offerings across private and public clouds, further making multi-cloud computing a reality for its customers.

The company is extending its Xi Frame desktop-as-a-service solution from the public cloud to private cloud, enabling the delivery of apps and desktops in a true hybrid cloud environment.

In addition, Nutanix is announcing new functionality and additional planned availability zones for its cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) service, Xi Leap.

With Nutanix's Xi Frame, customers can now access applications and virtual desktops from popular public clouds like AWS and Azure using any browser and device, said the statement from the company.

With the latest Xi Frame update running on the Nutanix AHV hypervisor, customers can now extend desktop delivery to their Nutanix private cloud, integrating virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) services with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform.

Xi Frame desktops can be simultaneously delivered via multiple clouds and managed via a single console for seamless control and administration, providing a true hybrid experience, said the statement.

In addition to being available to users on AWS and Azure, Xi Frame is now also available to customers worldwide for Nutanix private cloud deployments using AHV.

Customers can provision 1000s of virtual desktops in minutes, as opposed to weeks, enabling them to improve the economics, speed and scale of desktop delivery, it added.

Nutanix Xi Leap extends the enterprise data center to the cloud, allowing IT teams to harmonise public and private clouds and deliver enhanced availability for critical data and applications.

Customers get a natively-integrated DR cloud service, and single pane management, to protect critical workloads running in the data center and in a cloud, delivering improved business continuity.

Patrick Sudderth, director of Technical Services, Lexipol, said: “With previous disaster recovery systems, we weren’t able to achieve the performance we expected for virtual machine restoration and managing DR as a separate silo made our infrastructure more complex. Nutanix Xi Leap allows us to configure policies that automate the DR workflow directly within the Prism Console and restoration happens in a matter of minutes.”

Xi Beam, a Nutanix SaaS offering that provides cloud governance, will include a real-time security compliance module designed to identify critical cloud infrastructure vulnerabilities and recommend specific remediation. With new security and compliance functionality, IT architects will be able to fix security risks before they impact the business, he stated.

Sunil Potti, chief product and development officer, Nutanix, said: “The multi-cloud world is the new reality for IT — it’s no longer up for debate. Customers need solutions that can bring together the full mix of public, private, and edge clouds that will soon make up their critical infrastructure without drowning them in needless complexity and unchecked costs."

"By continuing to add new capabilities to our portfolio, we’re giving customers the freedom to deliver their applications and data from the cloud that makes the most sense for their business," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
