Founded in 2009, Nutanix is the first company to offer a radically simple compute and storage infrastructure for implementing enterprise-class virtualization without complex and expensive network storage (SAN or NAS). Founded by a team that has built scalable systems like Google File System and enterprise-class systems like Oracle Database/Exadata in the past, Nutanix is based in San Jose and is backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners and Blumberg Capital.
The Nutanix Mission Nutanix enables you to virtualize your datacenter without requiring a SAN. Our mission is to make virtualization simple by eliminating the need for network storage while still delivering the enterprise-class performance, scalability and data management features you need. Nutanix Complete Cluster’s converged compute and storage architecture delivers a purpose-built building block for virtualization. It is a hardware and software solution that provides complete server and storage capabilities that you need to run virtual machines and store their data. This building block approach allows you to start with what you need now and add additional blocks as your needs grow to scale-out a single system. Less time and money spent on network storage means faster ROI for your virtualization initiatives and better use of your IT resources.
Radically Simplified IT and Dramatically Lower TCO Compute + Storage Together: Out-of-the-box capabilities get you up and running in 30 minutes. Scaling out is equally easy. 40-60% CAPEX Reduction: Elimination of expensive network storage results in immediate 40-60% reduction in CAPEX, while providing highly advanced shared-storage capabilities. Top-Down VM Management: Clear visibility across compute and storage resources streamlines management tasks for administrative efficiency. Reduced Datacenter Footprint: Shrinking to a smaller, more efficient converged architecture for server and storage translates to measurable OPEX reduction in administration, power and cooling costs.
Enterprise-Class Data Management Capacity Optimization: Zero-overhead cloning and thin provisioning provide 10x-50x data reduction. Converged Backups: Instant backup and recovery of VM data on the cluster eliminates the need for external backup appliances. Performance and Scalability: Local solid-state drives (with data tiering to hard disks) provide high performance at low cost; scale-out architecture enables grow-as-you-go virtualization. High Availability and Disaster Recovery: Highly fault tolerant architecture ensures VM availability in case of local failures or site-wide disaster.
