NUTANIX- Turn Key Virtualization Solution

What is Nutanix?

The Nutanix solution consists of the “Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform” which delivers enterprise compute and storage through the deployment of commodity computing servers (called nodes) which each run a standard hypervisor and the Nutanix Operating System (NOS). Each server contains Intel processors, memory, solid-state drives and traditional hard drives, and when added into a cluster aggregates storage resources into a single storage pool. Capacity is added by adding a node to the computing cluster.

Hypervisor Integration 

Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform was designed for virtualization, so it smoothly integrates into the hypervisor environment.

  • Each Nutanix node runs a generic install of an Enterprise Hypervisor (Vmware vsphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, KVM)
  • Nutanix leaverages hypervisor APIs for deeper integration (Vmware VAAI Hper-V ODX)
