Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Overview Nutanix delivers a web-scale, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solution purpose-built for virtualization and both containerized and cloud environments. This solution brings the scale, resilience, and economic benefits of web-scale architecture to the enterprise through the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform, which combines the core HCI product families—the Nutanix Acropolis OS and Nutanix Prism management—along with other software products that automate, secure, and back up cost-optimized infrastructure. Available attributes of the Nutanix enterprise cloud OS stack include: • Optimized for storage and compute resources. • Machine learning to plan for and adapt to changing conditions automatically. • Self-healing to tolerate and adjust to component failures. • API-based automation and rich analytics. • Simplified one-click upgrade. • Native file services for user and application data. • Native backup and disaster recovery solutions. • Powerful and feature-rich virtualization. • Flexible software-defined networking for visualization, automation, and security. • Cloud automation and life cycle management. Nutanix Acropolis provides data services and can be broken down into two main components: the Distributed Storage Fabric (DSF) and AHV. Nutanix Prism furnishes one-click infrastructure management for virtual environments running on Acropolis. Acropolis is hypervisor agnostic, supporting two third-party hypervisors—VMware ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V—in addition to the native Nutanix hypervisor, AHV.
