Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform
The San Jose, Calif.-based hyper-converged pioneer went on an innovation tear at its Nutanix .NEXT conference this year, launching significant enhancements to its product portfolio. Nutanix ranks second in worldwide HCI market share with 14 percent share in the first quarter of 2019. The company consistently upgrades its flagship Enterprise Cloud Platform with new products like Calm for application orchestration, Files for unstructured data and Xi Beam for multi-cloud governance and cost control.
The Enterprise Cloud Platform uses native AHV Virtualization with Nutanix’s software-defined storage, compute, data security, software-defined networking and management software. Nutanix’s AHV hypervisor is a low-cost alternative to the competition with an easy migration path. The company offers a robust management and self-service management interface with its Prism product while also supporting hybrid cloud via Xi Leap for Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service.
