SAN JOSE, CA: Today’s enterprise IT teams face the daunting task of providing a large amount of services and products faster and at lower costs. Nutanix, a computer software firm specializing in virtualization, rises to the challenge and offers the IT administrators a hyper-converged infrastructure, integrating compute and storage into a single x86 based server. This reduces power consumption and eliminates storage complexity. Adopting the hyper-converged infrastructure would provide limitless scalability, faster time-to-value to the IT teams and frees them to focus on innovative ideas. All of this while reducing the overall TCO.

Basically hyper-convergence is a type of infrastructure system with a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources and other technologies. The infrastructure allows those integrated technologies to be managed as a single system through a common toolset. They can be expanded through the addition of nodes to the base unit.

By employing the hyper-converged infrastructure, Nutanix provides two kinds of solutions. The first one is solution based on use case, which include – cloud, big data, server virtualization and enterprise application to name a few. The second one is based on type of industry. Healthcare, financial services and federal government are few of the industries which leverage Nutanix’s services to enhance and acceleration their operations.

Nutanix’s managing hierarchy has recently announced that it would be taking the company public in the near future.
