Cloud computing provider Nutanix just simplified its product portfolio with a focus on hybrid clouds and multicloud.

The company says it has further streamlined customers’ digital transformations by delivering an easy-to-consume set of solutions.

The new portfolio aims to remove the complexity often associated with enabling a full range of hybrid cloud services across multiple environments. This is achieved by simplifying packaging, metering and pricing so that customers can more easily plan for changing needs. This includes workload expansions, cloud preferences, tech refreshes and more.

“Nutanix’s growth started as a more flexible, easier-to-manage alternative to SAN storage. It has grown into a full cloud platform from virtualization to networking to security, and supports all workloads across on-premises and public clouds,” Nadkarni said. “The new product portfolio delivers even more flexibility to help customers adapt to their business’ changing needs.”

Simplified Portfolio

The company has built an enterprise-ready, unified cloud platform with its market leading HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure) solution as the foundation. The new, simplified portfolio includes:

  •       Nutanix Cloud Infrastructure (NCI) provides a complete software solution including virtual compute, storage and networking for virtual machines and containers. These can be deployed in private data centers on the hardware of choice or in public clouds. These clouds have built-in resilience, self-healing, performance, disaster recovery capabilities and security.

  •       Nutanix Cloud Manager (NCM) aims to bring simplicity and ease of use to building and managing cloud deployments by driving consistent governance. It accomplishes this across private and public clouds, helping customers accelerate their cloud journey. NCM delivers intelligent operations (including automated remediation) making it easier for enterprises to deploy, operate, and manage their applications.

Workloads Deployed Anywhere

  •       Nutanix Unified Storage (NUS) delivers distributed and software defined storage for multiple protocols (volumes, files, objects). This supports a variety of workloads deployed anywhere – private, public, or hybrid cloud – with license portability in between.

  •       Nutanix Database Service (NDB) simplifies database management across hybrid multicloud environments for database engines like PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle Database. NDB has powerful automation for provisioning, scaling, patching, protection and cloning of database instances.

  •       Nutanix End User Computing Solutions deliver virtual apps and desktops to users worldwide from public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure. They provide a per-user licensing option for NCI that aims to simplify capacity planning.
