Nutanix Clusters spread to AWS bare metal servers

By

Nutanix' hyperconverged infrastructure software Nutanix Clusters is now generally available on AWS bare metal EC2 instances.

Use cases for Nutanix Clusters on AWS include the 'lift and shift' of applications to public cloud, cloudbursting to support peak demands, business continuity, and the use of cloud native services with existing applications.

Multi-cloud and hybrid cloud strategies are becoming increasingly common, and Nutanix claims to offer a single stack that integrates compute and storage, provides unified operations across private and public clouds, integrated networking with AWS, and license portability from private to public clouds.

This approach is said to eliminate cost and management complexity thanks to a single interface, and to enable seamless mobility across private and public clouds without any rearchitecting of the apps thanks to built-in integration with the AWS networking layer.

In addition, Nutanix' licences are portable across clouds, which has a direct impact on cost and resource optimisation.

Customers can choose to take their on-premises licenses to AWS, or select pre-committed or pay-as-you-go cloud licences.

Australian Bureau of Statistics CISO Julian Doak said "We were already Nutanix customers, running our VDI and analytical workloads in our data centre, and also use AWS. A single cloud solution to manage multiple clouds will make it easier to scale our IT needs.

"Nutanix Clusters provides a seamless way to burst capacity into public clouds to increase our VDI workloads when needed to support census activities, while knowing all our apps will just work – without needing to repackage or rearchitect them."

Nutanix chief commercial officer Tarkan Maner said "As the industry evolved, our focus has expanded beyond the data centre to help our customers manage the complexity of multiple clouds, whether private or public.

"Nutanix Clusters on AWS is the realisation of this vision. This enables complete flexibility by allowing businesses to write code once and use it anywhere, taking advantage of scale, location, integration and pricing of multiple options - this is the true vision of hybrid cloud."

AWS head of worldwide channels and alliances Doug Yeum said "We are excited to support an extension of a customer's private cloud environment into AWS with the launch of Clusters on AWS. This provides customers the flexibility to get the most out of both their AWS and Nutanix environments.

"Customers now have an opportunity to take advantage of Nutanix Clusters on AWS to deploy adjacent to their cloud-native applications in AWS and fast track their digital transformation."

Nutanix Clusters on AWS is now available in 20 AWS regions, including Asia Pacific (Sydney).
