Nutanix Strengthens Cloud Position With Google Alliance, New Tech Capabilities
Nutanix took some significant steps this week to move workloads running on its hyper-converged infrastructure systems beyond the data center to hybrid clouds.
Nutanix, which held its .NEXT conference this week, announced an alliance with Google aimed at making it easier for workloads running on its hyper-converged systems to easily migrate to the Google cloud. The Nutanix-Google relationship, which includes Nutanix support for Kubernetes container technology, builds a bridge between on-premise and cloud systems.
Nutanix also unveiled Nutanix Xi Cloud Services, which extend data center services to the cloud via the company's Prism centralized data center infrastructure management software. The move is expected to make it easier for partners and customers to build hybrid clouds, a difficult task with traditional on-premise infrastructure systems.
