“Nutanix continues to stay ahead of the innovation curve with this release. It is critical to have a solution that can adapt to such a fast paced industry while scaling at a level of granularity that best fits the growth of my business,” says Rodney Perkins, IT Director of Farmers Insurance Group Federal Credit Union.
The NX-3000 is based on Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture and delivers unprecedented VM density in a 2U form factor.
Nutanix OS 3.0 also delivers best-in-class runbook (failover and failback) automation that is hypervisor-agnostic, which means the native disaster recovery capabilities are available and consistent regardless of the underlying virtualization platform or management tools.
“While our existing storage solutions support compression in general, the granularity of Nutanix compression allows us to set policies at the VM level, ensuring maximum business value and storage utilization, without sacrificing performance,” said Jon Lasley of Anthelio Healthcare Solutions.
The new software also uses software-defined networking tricks to achieve rolling software upgrades within the always-on cluster. Upgrades are delivered in a peer-to-peer framework to enable rapid software upgrades while retaining maximum cluster availability.
“The features and capabilities that we have delivered in Nutanix OS 3.0 and the NX-3000 series usher in a new era of business resiliency and datacenter optimization,” said Howard Ting, VP of Marketing at Nutanix. “These enhancements, built on top of an already ground-breaking product foundation, underscore the company’s continued commitment to innovation and customer success with high-end enterprise workloads.”
