New Business Continuity And Disaster Recovery For Nutanix Cloud Platform
Nutanix Cloud Platform customers who adopt AOS 6 now gain access to new Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery capabilities, previously only found in specialized solutions.
Built into AOS 6 is the ability to leverage the public cloud as a secondary site, native metro clustering support for the built-in AHV hypervisor enabling automatic failover in the event of a disaster, as well as end-to-end encryption capabilities for disaster recovery (DR) traffic.
Nutanix also created a new DR dashboard that provides a view into customers’ DR configuration and status across primary and secondary sites.
With these new capabilities, Nutanix is enabling enterprises to eliminate specialized DR hardware and software, reduce licensing costs, improve recovery time, simplify their operations, and potentially eliminate expensive hot-standby secondary sites. Nutanix said it strives to help mid-size companies that might not have had the budget or skills to implement robust DR capabilities to better protect their businesses from disasters.
Nutanix’s new enterprise DR features are currently available to customers.
