Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform is bringing cloud-like operational simplicity to enterprise datacenters. If the enterprise datacenter behaves and operates like a public cloud, then application demands will drive private cloud vs public cloud (aka “buy vs rent”) decisions, instead of vendor-driven requirements that are imposed on enterprise IT users. Delivering on this was less about stitching together different disparate solutions and making them work. It was about reimagining how infrastructure should look and behave based on applications needs and changes. The first step was to converge compute and storage, which we accomplished five years ago, (now commonly called Hyper convergence). The next step was to reimagine virtualization and datacenter management, and continue the push to simplify the full data plane and control plane.
Nutanix have written a manual about Enterprise Cloud.
“Nutanix Enterprise Cloud was the only platform we felt comfortable with. It was also the only one able to offer us a tried and trusted solution, fully certified to work with the Microsoft hypervisor… One of the key benefits from my point of view is a much greater insight into what’s going on inside the box. Not that I need to check on it that often – it just works.”
