Hybrid Cloud Solutions

Our CEO, Rajiv Ramaswami, discusses cloud market trends, the Nutanix vision, and journeying to the cloud with the Nutanix hybrid platform.

 Why Nutanix for Hybrid Cloud Solutions?

Features of Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid Cloud Solutions Simplified

Whether you are running applications as traditional VMs or leveraging modern container technology, Nutanix automates infrastructure operations and application delivery across public and private clouds. Nutanix hybrid cloud solutions unify management across clouds, while enabling seamless mobility of applications and data between disparate environments. Deliver each application from the right cloud, but without added complexity.

Seamless App Mobility Without Retooling or Rework

Use the same software platform on both private and public clouds, enabling you to deliver applications from public clouds such as AWS, exactly as you do with datacenter infrastructure. Eliminate the operational complexity of a hybrid cloud, and gain the ability to extend, burst, or migrate your applications and data into the cloud of your choice.

One Skill Set. Any Cloud.

Use hybrid cloud solutions to manage your applications and IT resources across clouds, utilizing the same operational practices and existing third-party integrations for a common experience. Eliminate the need to separately develop and maintain different operational and troubleshooting practices for each cloud environment.

Software Portability and Hybrid Cloud Optionality

Avoid vendor and cloud lock-in with portable software that can move with your applications and data across clouds. Get a consistent consumption model spanning private and public IT environments, so you can confidently plan your long-term hybrid strategy, maximizing the benefits of each environment.
