Nutanix becomes the operating platform of data centers
CIOs that focus on digital transformation today need more agile and flexible technology infrastructures in this direction. Nutanix offers its customers a flexible, unlimited growth platform for these technologies that can adapt to changing conditions of companies. Pointing out to the increased corporate awareness in hyper integrated systems, Nutanix Turkey Country Manager Tarık Ertuğrul said that:
“Regardless of the sector, corporate practices are vital to ensure that institutions maintain their assets and keep customer satisfaction at the highest level. While these applications can be retailing for a company serving in the retail sector or banking applications for the banking sector. However, when you examine the IT infrastructure of the companies, we see that the 3-layer traditional architecture consisting of server, data storage products and SAN switches is used to run applications. This structure, consisting mainly of purposeful systems called purpose-built, is a structure that is both costly and difficult to manage, where different layers are managed by different people. At the same time, companies increase their costs by buying the capacity they will use in 3 or 5 years from the first day due to upgrade costs and maintenance renewal costs. While starting out with its hyper-integrated concept, Nutanix set out with the idea of how we can simplify this complex structure and reduce the costs. With its hyper-integrated concept, the previously 3-layered complex structure is replaced by X86-based and low-cost node servers. The Nutanix software layer working on it also enables the system to be virtualized as ‘software defined’.
In addition to Nutanix, there are different manufacturers that offer a hyper integrated solution. We always recommend our customers to pay particular attention to a few issues when evaluating hyper integrated solutions.
Hyper integrated products should be able to grow without a limit. Unfortunately, there are hyper integrated silos that need to be managed separately in the customer data center, as the system cannot grow much due to the limitations imposed by manufacturers. Nutanix offers its customers a platform that is flexible and can grow limitlessly.
The preferred hyper integrated solution must be hardware independent and the customer should be able to run the hyper integrated product on the desired server. Unfortunately, if the customer chooses a hardware dependent solution, the costs will increase significantly due to vendor lock-in. Nutanix solutions are hardware independent and run on more than one hundred and eighty server platforms.
The hyper integrated solution that is preferred should be flexible about the server virtualization layer used. Nutanix provides its own virtualization solution, AHV, to its customers free of charge and provides support. It also runs on VMware VSphere, Microsoft HyperV, Citrix Zen Server, but our preference is that our customers always reduce their costs using the free Nutanix AHV server virtualization product.
The hyper integrated solution to be preferred should be easily managed from a single screen and there should be no separate installation and management screens for separate modules. Such solutions make life more difficult while trying to simplify it. With One Click, the system should be very easy to understand and used even by a person who is not an expert.
As Nutanix, we also address our customers’ Day-1 and Day-2 operations with the platform we offer. By bringing them the convenience of working in the cloud and integrating Private Cloud with Public Cloud, which we provide with Nutanix, we ensure that the data can be stored anywhere they want.
Nowadays all CIOs have almost the same topics in their agenda, digital transformation, reducing costs, increasing efficiency and agility. In other words, the topics are related to how companies’ IT infrastructures and services can adapt to changing conditions quickly.
With its unique architecture, Nutanix creates a Private Cloud on the hyper integrated infrastructure in the data center of the customers and offers free server virtualization. In addition, Private Cloud and Public Cloud running on Nutanix can work integrated with Nutanix. Thus, companies can move their data between Private Cloud and Public Cloud according to their needs.”
