Simplify your datacentre stack with Nutanix Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) and Truis

When the cloud was first taking off organisations had a choice to make – cloud or no cloud? It was a fairly straightforward question for what was at the time, a pretty straightforward digital landscape.
That’s no longer the case though. Today, organisations still have a choice to make but it’s a little more complex – which cloud for this particular app?

The cutthroat and competitive nature of markets nowadays means organisations must be leveraging the speed and agility provided by the public cloud, the caveat to going fully public, though, lies in the increasingly volatile threat landscape and growing data compliance demands. Security and compliance – two things that private cloud and on-premise infrastructure provide.

Which reiterates the question – which cloud for this particular app?

In order to put every app where it’s most suited, the answer lies somewhere in between public and private cloud, or as people in IT circles like to label it, hybrid cloud. Hybrid cloud is a combination of private or on-premise infrastructure with public cloud – giving organisations the best of both worlds without having to put all their eggs in one basket.

Be careful though.

How do I reduce my organisation IT complexity?

Nutanix has developed an industry leading, 100% software-defined HCI solution that delivers a single cloud platform to facilitate any kind of hybrid or multicloud strategy.[1] So regardless of your environment’s overall makeup you can enjoy management and operations through a single management console for all your workloads.

With the ability to manage datacentre apps and clouds through a single dashboard, it unshackles IT teams from mundane and time-consuming management tasks. Apps can be moved seamlessly between public, private, and edge clouds at the click of a finger and as a vendor agnostic software platform, it’s easily deployed to the public or private cloud solution of your choice.

It was calculated that using Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform with a HCI setup CTO’s could achieve a five-year ROI of 477% on average.3 This was achieved through a combination of the below

  • Leveraging an agile and scalable platform that increased employee efficiency.3
  • Limiting operational risk and eliminating unplanned downtime that resulted in significant revenue losses.3
  • Increasing the efficiency of IT staff and reducing time spent on maintenance, upgrades, and support.3
  • Driving down hardware and software costs by improving infrastructure effectiveness and reducing licensing needs.3
