5 Ways the Nutanix VCP Beats Traditional Datacenter Infrastructure

When it comes to your data center, flexibility should be a major priority. While converged infrastructure, traditionally, often serves to limit flexibility to one degree or another, that isn’t necessarily the case with the Nutanix Virtual computing platform. The Nutanix solution takes the compute (server) function and the storage tier and combines them into one integrated device.

Based on the kind of web-scale technologies that provide the backbone for most of the major cloud services, Nutanix brings world-class flexibility down to enterprises without having to reinvent your entire IT environment.

Here are five ways of implementing the Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform can be deployed:

  1. Converged. With a converged datacenter infrastructure, you can deliver your services much more efficiently and economically, and you’ll use fewer resources to do so. We know from service leaders like Google and Facebook that old-fashioned Storage Area Networks create limitations that converged infrastructure solves. With storage and compute in a single system, Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform nodes all I/O and operations are handled via a local, industry-standard hypervisor. This gives you the kind of flexibility and scalability you need in today’s world.
  2. Scale-out. Being able to scale a datacenter in the past meant deploying more and more powerful (and more and more expensive) servers, networks and storage. Rather than scaling up, you need to be able to scale out, horizontally. Simply add additional Nutanix notes when you need more storage or compute, one at a time, with no system disruption.
  3. Software defined. Nutanix software-defined solutions separate policy control from your hardware substrate. The distributed software layer controls intelligence, making management and programmatic control easier and more centralized. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform lets you take storage from being a passive data keeper into an active system.
  4. Server-attached flash. Flash gives you dramatically faster I/O performance. Nutanix VCP gives you enterprise-grade flash in every node, giving you the best possible application performance and a fully persistent data tier in flash.
  5. Hybrid. Today’s data centers are evolving in many directions, including both private and public clouds. Your team is embracing multiple virtualization technologies, and Nutanix is the right solution for this kind of environment. It functions independently from storage media, and runs on all of today’s top hypervisors, giving you seamless hybrid cloud environment. 

A datacenter infrastructure built on Nutanix VCP is just the kind of infrastructure that can take you into the future.
