Bolt for Gold with All-flash Platforms

Bolt for Gold with All-flash Platforms | Virtualization | Scoop.it

As the XXXI Olympic games came to a close, we were again reminded of the dedication required to compete at extraordinary levels. Athletes such as Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, and Simone Biles clearly separated themselves from the rest of the pack to be the fastest and the most consistent. 


They have what it takes to succeed and have won gold medals consistently.   For example, Usain Bolt has won nine gold medals at the last three Olympics, all while only spending a couple of minutes on the track.

Nutanix and Microsoft Create Hybrid Cloud Building Blocks with Cloud Platform System - Standard | Virtualization | Scoop.it

As IT continues to evolve, private clouds have become a core part of many businesses.  The flexibility and agility these clouds can provide to IT consumers is rapidly becoming an expected deliverable, rather than just a value-addition.    


However, these clouds often come at the expense of IT, with complexity in setup, configuration, and scaling.  In light of this, Nutanix has teamed up with Microsoft to offer the Microsoft Cloud Platform System (CPS)-Standard for Nutanix.

Capacity Planning Powered by X-FIT | Virtualization | Scoop.it

Nutanix Prism radically simplifies a broad range of IT operations using powerful machine learning and automated decision making. At the heart of this machine learning is a patent-pending technology developed at Nutanix called X-FIT.   


Instead of using one particular model, X-FIT uses an ensemble of models and runs a contest to dynamically pick the best model for the application. X-FIT is the engine behind Nutanix’s machine learning technology. This blog discusses the Predictive Capacity Analysis capability introduced in Prism that harnesses machine learning powered by X-FIT to drive the automated decision making.

Enterprise Cloud for Service Providers: Data Protection and DR as a Service

Enterprise Cloud for Service Providers: Data Protection and DR as a Service | Virtualization | Scoop.it

This is the fifth installment in a blog series focused on the needs of Service Providers. You can find links to all blogs in this series at the end of this article.   Because of the expense of maintaining a secondary location for disaster recovery and remote backup, companies of all sizes are looking to take advantage of the cloud for these functions. 


In particular, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), who may not have a second datacenter or be able to afford to duplicate infrastructure, are interested in these services.  With the launch of the Nutanix Xpress platform, this need is growing rapidly.

Horizon 7 on Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform: Better Together | Virtualization | Scoop.it

While working at Nutanix I’ve been given the freedom to work in a lot of different areas of the datacenter, but working with VMware Horizon is always one of my favorites.

Horizon 7 offers exciting new features including Blast Extreme, Instant Clones, App Volumes, User Environment Manager, and goes above and beyond by helping users meet security requirements with FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard).
